In reply to:

DakiOm's Feedback Stabilizer works with even low cost home or car stereos to produce high fidelity sound that RIVALS the quality of much more expensive "audiophile" stereos.




If it sounds to good to be true...

My guess is the best thing about these stabilizers is how well they will pad the pockets of those selling them.


Sorry, just the skeptic in me, Jag

I have heard of these before and they are just excellent. Little known tweaks to double their already impressive performance include soaking them in snake oil for 2 days at room temperature during a full moon, sprinkling them with magic pixie dust and then allowing them to break in for at least 120 hours. If you are fortunate enough to know any Druid priests, a blessing is purported to enhance them such that you can choose output of the audio in any language you prefer, except Klingon.

Ray3, you forgot to mention these little gems sound best on stands, preferably stands made out of oak or pine as they do not color the sound of these gems as much as metal. Keep in mind that they will need plenty of sunlight after they're fully broken in, so place them as close to the windows as possible to achieve best result. My cousin's friend's brother-inlaw's sister's boyfriend's uncle is the Project Manager of DAKIOM Technology and he said a new and improved version is due in December, those ultra-Gremlin series target prosumer and the next generation audiophile, if you're interested in R103 or A103, he suggested you to wait a little while, those new breed are suppose to enhance the sound quality of your audio gears in 10 folds.

Someone should contact them asking for a detailed schematic. If they refuse. Say you'll just buy one and post the diagram yourself.

John, I wanted to help give you the word on the deal, but this may just be too advanced for me. Reading their "Technology" section, it seemed to be just a jumble of terms thrown together almost at random which made no overall sense. Further checking showed that it's so advanced that not only is the described solution unknown to audio engineering science, but the "problem" isn't even thought to exist.

You may have seen these before, but this source and also this one available to lucky British audiophiles appear to have some products of similar worth.

Thanks JohnK. To be honest, I read the claims and what it's supposed to do and my head hurt when I was done. Sounded like a bunch of BS but I wasn't sure.

Yet another example of audio snake oil.
