They sure are beautiful, Big Will, but no can do.

Although there is no generally agreed on quantum theory of gravity, the great mass of these brass drive shaft dampers exchange gravitons with the speaker cross over facilitating electron tunneling in the capacitors and chronoton production resulting in superb time coherence from these gorgeous Michauras.

Nah, David Seville (known for the Chipmunks)... with "the Witch Doctor". Purple People Eater was Sheb Wooley.

Just transfered both from vinyl this past month.

Spiff (and others),

Those are definitely placed there to reduce vibrations, as you suspected. I don't think they're intended to improve the sound of your amp however. What they do is prevent the lid from ringing and buzzing if it picks up vibrations caused by the music you're listening to.

The stainless steel sink in my kitchen has similar deadening devices glued to each corner on the underside. Imagine the sound of a spoon being dropped into an un-deadened metal sink. Similarly, imagine how cheap the amp would feel if you rapped on its lid and it had responded with a tinny echo.

Is that the same thing they're suggesting you do to your cd player, etc?

When I first read about the Dynamat, there wasn't a clear explanation as to why. That's why I posted here, to see if anyone had an explanation. Maybe if you talk to Klaus again you could find out what he has to say?
