    I talked to Holger today and he does have independent measurements done. He will send them to me when he gets back.

    I have been experimenting with various crystals for 5 or 6 years. When they are heated there is some phenomena that happens the opens up the overall sonic presentation. They can also be used in AC applications where they add several desirable benefits

    I prefer juju beans and chicken bones. They sound more organic.

    Already tried them. The chicken bones have better tone. My unbiased opinion.

    Stein's setup uses crystals. Send him a e-mail suggesting he switch to juju beans and chicken bones

    For the Harmonisers, has anyone compared the H2 vs the H2 Signature models?

    Re: Holger Stein visits Suncoast Audio

    How does this really differ, sound wise, from a high end Atmos HT system. IOW, is this simply going to sound like a top notch HT surround system? Or, is the end result something truly different? It seems to me, if I understand the concept (and I may not) you're starting to get away from 2 channel audio and, sonically speaking, back to a multi-channel HT surround style of sound. Caveat...these questions are from a relatively recent returnee to high end audio after a 40+ year hiatus. So...be gentle.

    Totally different. Passive vs active. Surround sound is using a source mixed in 5.1 or 7.1. These devices make the walls of the room disappear.

    Mike, I was editing while you were writing. Sorry for any confusion. But it sounds like this component truly "opens up" the room. Does the source still sound like it comes from in front of you? Seems like you can actually move the source around?

    Absolutely, but it is even more focused and width of soundstage and overall separation is greatly increased.
