Q: What are the Top 10
Reasons Why You Need DakiOm Feedback Stabilizers?
A: (Any single reason below can
only be "fixed" with DakiOm Feedback Stabilizers)
1. Your mate tells you to turn down the volume.†
2. You don't care†for†hi-res (SACD/DVD-A). CD's†are just as good, for less money.†
3. Your music collection is rather modest.†
4. You want a better subwoofer.†
5. Some of your CD's are of bad recording quality.†
6. Your musical taste is concentrated in one area.†
7. You like LP more than CD but you wish LP's†are as convenient as CD's.†
8. You are a collector of (or are still using) vintage audio equipment.†
9. You want more after discovering that vibration control really†improves†audio.†
10. You want†improvement that can pass blind tests.
Q: Do the stabilizers have a
break-in or burn-in period?
A: Definitely, there is a change in
sound over time: this is the "burn-in" mystery. Our theory
concerning this "burn-in" phenomenon is that it is a
learning of the brain rather than a physical change of components. It
is easy to show that there is no physical change over time in the
stabilizers. Just A/B an old and a new component. They will sound the
same and the music changes according to people and time, not with
new/old components. When the new tweak is implemented, the brain
learns to interpret the new sound and is able to catch nuances of the
new sound. Just like you learn a new language. In the beginning, the
language sounds monotonous, without connections between the syllables,
but when you understand it, it sounds connected and flowing. With
enough time, the brain can decide to like the new music more (if the
new music makes more sense) or less (if the new music is more
disconnected and confusing) than the old music.
also believe that music is the primordial language of people. It
expresses our emotion to relieve us from stresses and to reinforce bonds.
Q: Can DakiOm improve zero-
or low-feedback amplifiers?
A: As the name implies, DakiOm
Feedback Stabilizers will only improve players and amplifiers using
Negative Feedback (NFB) circuitry, including digital amplifiers using
NFB. They cannot improve amplifiers that shy away from the problems of
NFB by avoiding or limiting the use of NFB. This is a very costly
tradeoff as there are many benefits with NFB. With DakiOm Feedback
Stabilizers we preserve the benefits of NFB and address the
instability issues associated with NFB. DakiOm stabilized NFB
components will therefore outperform zero- or low- feedback
A rule of thumb for deciding if a
component uses NFB is the specification for distortion, especially the
distortion into simulated/complex speaker loads. If the distortion is
specified to be less than 0.1%, then it is very likely that NFB is
implemented. If your audio components shy away from specifying the
distortion, then the component is probably not using NFB and therefore
not compatible with Feedback Stabilizers.
Q. What is DakiOmís recommendation for
"tweaking" my system?
A. If you are not satisfied with your audio system because of harshness and mushy bass, then definitely our stabilizers are the answer. One
R203 (or R103) for the CD player RCA outputs and one A203 (or A103) for the stereo amp are the best start. Then add more later.
Want another tweak to further improve the sound like more smoothness,
a wider sound stage, a more seductive singerís voice, or some other
improved musical characteristic?
Then we have to ask you the following
Do you care very much whether or not your audio system is vibration isolated?
- If the answer is yes, and you already go very far to control vibration (you even use "cable risers"), then
congratulations. You have "golden ears" and can really
appreciate good music. Make sure you have DakiOm stabilizers on every
piece of equipment as a fully stabilized system is best appreciated by
people with "golden ears".
- If you are not aware of the benefit of vibration control on reproduced music, then we
should inform you that controlling vibration is a must for getting the
best sound quality in your music:
Try our "vibration
tweak" and "comparative listening
test". If the vibration tweak works for you and you
are not using DakiOm, then hurry and buy some stabilizers to get relief
If the vibration tweak does not work for you, then perhaps you don't
need ultra high quality sound. But donít come to this conclusion too fast, not until you keep on trying our "vibration tweak and listening test" many times, because some people take longer to realize their real musical taste and golden ears. Take time and be patient because good music
is worth the trouble.
