    A high end speaker uses very fancy magnets, a super quality voice coil, a
    robust frame, often cast, and top quality speaker cone materials. Then it's
    all put together by people who know what they are doing and care about it
    and take the time to get it right. I'm sure the margins are better, but so
    are the margins in the best restaurants as compared to MickeyD's.

    There's a lot more that goes into a high(er) end speaker than just the
    drivers. Usually the cabinets are more solidly constructed to more accurate
    dimensions, and everything including the drivers is of higher quality with
    closer tolerances. I say higher, because to some "high end" means
    ridiculously overpriced audiophool crap.
  3. Sorry guys, I've got no benefit in this story but it really works.

    First of all, the CD has to be demagnetized. There's been an article
    bout this in one of the "Elektor" books and I tought at first it was an
    april fool's day. Then after, it appeared its true, somer magnetization
    may influence the path of the laser beam.

    That's for the CD topic.

    Now, if you us this guy's machine, you must be absolutely sure that
    you've got no DC in the signal path, otherways, it will never work or
    even get worse.

  4. Don't for get to remove that magnetic clamp that holds the disk down.

    Better shield that optical cable in a wrap of mu metal as well.

    Don't miss my version, which will be up for sale on
    ebay soon. Just have to complete the final test.

    Mine will cost a little more, but will do far, far more.

    Not only will it demagnetize CD drives, but it will ALSO
    demagnetize all of your hard drives. AND it comes with
    a free AC battery, which you may use in series with your
    data line to elimated that dratted DC.

    Don't miss out; supplies are limited.

    One of the most critical elements is sealing all the joints against air
    pressure. Also, if you read some of the British books on speaker
    construction, they used to build their boxes out of sand filled panels, or
    panels with ceramic tiles bonded inside, or even of brick or cement!

    No, but someone is working on a printer paper cleaner - removes laser ink
    from paper for re-use - no joke!
