Improving one’s system is really a step-by-step approach. It all matters and some things/tweaks do more than others. The important thing is to continue moving forward so the sum of the tweaks ultimately lifts your sound up beyond your initial starting point.
I found the tube damper rings made a difference.
So did using IsolateIt half dome sorbothane dampers worked their magic.
Again, its the little things that move the bar higher.
Even lifting your speaker cables off the floor makes an improvement.
In the end it all comes down to how reveling your system is to begin with, compared to whether you will notice any improvements.
The more reveling, the more you will notice/hear an improvement.
And remember not all tweaks have to cost a lot of money especially if you do them right the first time.
I can hardly remember how my system sounded before I really got involved with tweaking.
For me, my system is not the some sounding system I started with and I am so very pleased and proud of how well it sounds that I want others to come by and hear what it now sounds like.
Happy listening my friends,
PS, I forgot to mention that I am working on using IsoAccoustics Gaia speaker isolators to increase the sonic performance of my speakers.
