Cabin Fever – Top Tips

Now that’s what I call an improvement

You’re stuck at home, and you have a good HiFi system. Imagine being amongst the millions who haven’t – doesn’t bear thinking about.

Anyway, you are one of the few who can spend their days in isolation listening to great sounding music, you lucky dog. But, the downside is that this might bring cheer to your co-isoltationists, and we don’t want that……

…..what we want is something that will annoy the hell out of them, that means from a distance they hear the same brief exerpt over and over again. In other words, we want to tweak our system. So here goes. The list will be added to over the days.

There’s only one rule. If you do any of these things, you must report your findings. Deal?

1 Socket to me….

If you run your system from a distribution block, and you are using a dual socket as the outlet, there will almost certainly be a difference between the sockets. If you are running directly from a dual socket, try swapping. To hear the effect clearly, try playing a piece of music with strong rhythmic accents.

Warning under no circumstances either: put your fingers in a mains socket, or, use mains sockets or a distribution block with USB outlets. The first might kill you, the second will KILL your music.

2 Get rid of those links….

If you are using speakers with bi-wire links made of metal plate, or even high performance speaker wire, now is the time to get a big uplift in your speaker’s performance. Feed the speaker using a ‘Y’ adaptor – see picture, you can make your own from speaker cable of choice, and Z Plugs. Result: more coherence, the music will seem more focused and energetic……
