TBH, I can see how it can be argued that cables with different electrical properties can alter the current in some way and therefore the sound travelling through them, but I find it difficult to see how mechanical forces can change things in the same way. I am talking about cables here btw, and not supports for equipment.

Do you know nothing? It's all about carpet noise. There is a perfectly good explanation for this, it's to do with...er...umm...wibble! Wibble!

Don't forget quantum crodile clips. They're crocodile clips; they cost £500 EACH; they encourage you to use lots of them for maximum effect

Bargain, I tell you...

"The P.W.B. Quantum Clip is capable of manipulating certain inanimate material into a condition that mimics the quantum state of our living senses. To understand the importance of such a technique, it is necessary to realise that the human senses evolved in a world long before most of the materials within the modern environment existed. The human senses evolved to interact with certain, specific, energy patterns - namely other relevant forms of life...

Simply attach the Quantum Clip as illustrated and activate the end of the clip in the normal way with the Tweezers The effect is most noticeable.

The greater the number of the different types of P.W.B. Foils that are attached to the object, the greater will be the beneficial effect of the Quantum Clip treatment.

The price of the Quantum Clip is £500" (http://www.belt.demon.co.uk/product/quantum/quantum.html)

What the hell are those two black boxes suppose to be doing to the cable on the second from left ceramic support?

The rack looks to be based on the TNT audio website rack.
