    Re: AudioQuest Fog Lifters

    I'm not saying these have lifted my system to another level. They are as they appear. They lift my cables from my floor. Much of this hobby is aesthetics and how it makes one feel about a system. This to me is just a inexpensive touch and care item to my system.

    And most of the fog these days is in my head!

    Re: AudioQuest Fog Lifters

    I’ve found they make a difference on carpeted floors.

    Well at least it would stop them from vibrating.
    With the cable lifters, the cables act just like guitar strings.
    And those cable lifters act just like static electricity collectors.
    Static electricity loves high resistance insulator standoffs.

    I can´t really tell you. You must try.
    Mike gave you an idea

    SpeedSkater, from what i read from you, i think we are in opposite sides in audio.
    I don´t know if you´re serious but what you´re saying is my point.
    The difference will more evident depending the weight of the lifters and the weight and the geometry of the cable(s) and their damping factor.

    Ok, I'll bite, tell me how the weight of the lifters are going to effect sound ?????

    I see you are a little impatient!
    Well, if you really think about eliminating vibrations, you will certainly agree that mass/weight is a very important factor.


    A friend of mine, from experience to experience, arrived at some home made lifters, in granite. There are two pieces that fit and tighten the cables in the middle, and which according to him guarantee not only the elevation of the floor but also a good compression, ensuring that the cables do not "move" at all, again according to him with audible effects in the cleanliness of the sound.
    Vibrations are one of the most important factors in audio.
