Yeah, T, but their cable lifts are "designed by Marcia Bauman".

Enjoy the music, not the equipment.

But it's their "biggest upgrade by far!" That means a power strip makes more difference than speakers, amps, or preamps. Wow. I should have spent my money on one of those and kept my Cambridge Soundworks!

$14 for three sticks and a rubber band? if only i had no conscience i could retire wealthy at 30 from having sold sticks and elastics.

That’s exactly what our good-looking maple Triad (designed by Marcia Bauman) does

now maybe it's just me but wouldn't having a dozen or so little tipi's on your carpet look silly and also cause possible injuries at 2 in the morn when you're going to the fridge?
What does this button do?

Hey guys, don't knock those cable lifts until you try them.

I tied 3 straws togethor with rubber bands to make my own DIY version, and you would not believe how much better my 12 AWG sounds now. Yes, you heard me right, my speaker wire sounds better now, even with no speakers hooked to them.

Even better, now my m80's sound waaaaaay better when hooked up. Since I have all this extra sound quality and additional clean power, I've gone back to Buywiring, unbelievable.

But best of all, it is easier to vacuum now since my speaker wire is raised off the floor by the straws, and I no longer get electro magnetic build up and static charge in the wire, which reduces the sound quality over time.

ps: just another DIY hint I'll pass on to you, however, I can't realease the website. If you rub tooth paste on your binding posts you will get much cleaner sound and the copper won't tarnish over time.

They also claim that Putting your amps on maple makes them sound better...knock on wood.

Or, if you are really feeling spendy, you could pay $700 to get a power strip mounted on maple

Yuk! I just tried and it made the whole receiver sticky. From now on, that stuff goes on pancakes and that's all!

Yes, but if you read, you will note that it's not just any maple, it's 3 your old air dried old growth, 75 to 100 year old Maryland Maple. Because Maryland maple sounds clearly better than Canadian rock maple. And hand made by an Amish Craftsman to boot.

Sorry Home Depot, your wood's no good.
