    Shakti Stones

    I'm ashamed to say it, but I ordered 4 Shakti Stones, then 24 hours after my test (main breaker, outlets, devices, power conditionner, etc.), I reoffended: 8 more.

    A compulsive buyer problem, supertition, esotericism, or the captivating side of the music has been revealed to me since a week? To my ears, it's clearly musicality and smoothness. Very impressed, but perplexed. What are your views?
