    perhaps we can confine the comment to the thread topic ...if anyone is not interested in trying this tweak or thinks it doesn't work ...then I'd suggest you post elsewhere. Remember this is after all the diy section not the discussion section.

    I repeat this is relatively cheap less than £5 tops if you can't be *rsed to try it, don't tell those that have made the effort...that it has no effect if they say it has.

    So far this has achieved results in several system to greater or lesser effect....

    If it doesn't work for you then its not cost an arm or a leg to find out. But if you don't try it how can you possibly offer any comments on its effectiveness ?

    I have 6kg of bentonite granules I'd be willing to share if anyone want to try it. pm me

    "perhaps we can confine the comment to the thread topic "

    ..totally


    "...if anyone is not interested in trying this tweak or thinks it doesn't work ...then I'd suggest you post elsewhere"


    ...or "feels sure it won't work", Pete?

    Was that what you meant?


    I think people can (and might!) try it and discover it hasn't worked for them!


    Nothings guarenteed!

    But a capital investment of £5 is perhpts not the end of world.

    I do think there is space btw for this sort of idea on the forum.

    Some of us don't have mega-£££-buck for expensive loudspeakers etc.....and have to squeeze what they can from modest kit.

    Please read the title of the section again. "DIY" does feature. So does the term "discussion"

    as requested , have tried the bentonite tweak.

    Initially, I heard, and then saw a result.

    It sounded loads better, but then the cat shit on my turntable

    STOP PRESS!!

    Anti terrorist squad, and bomb disposal experts in Bristol, have performed a controlled explosion on what was thought to be a sandwich box with a wire exiting it, containing what looked like plastic explosives. The wire was attached to a hi-fi system. A police spokesman said it was thought the remote control of the CD player was going to be used as a detonation device.

    All the cats in the vicinity were seen to be holding their noses. :D

    Turns out, it was a hoax. Police are looking for the miscreant, but he appears to have gone to...er... ground.

    GOOD NEWS FOLKS! You can all sleep a bit easier tonight. The Ol Bill have made arrests.

    Two characters were stopped coming out of Tesco, with bags of suspicious substances. When challenged, they said it was cat litter. Police haven't released their full names yet, but eye witnesses said one was referred to as David, and the other, turned out to be a cat with red eyeballs, who said his name was Zan... something.

    When asked by the arresting officer, Chief Superintendent Bob McC something, what they wanted said cat litter for, they retorted, 'coz it contains Bentonite, and makes our hi-fi sound better '. At which point, the Super went a funny colour, and barked, ' is that similar to Chicken to night '. He then opined, that he'd never heard such a load of old cobblers, was going to arrest them, confiscate the substances, and take said substances home to investigate.

    At this point he asked the assembled, if by any chance any of them had a bit of wire he might borrow. As luck would have it, one nerdy guy from the Guardian produced a couple of metres of of quality ofc from his anorak. The Super did no more than snatch it, plus the two bags of cat litter, and make a bee line for his car, shouting,' I'm late off shift '.

    It was all a bit bizarre; still, nice to know the boys in blue are being vigilant and taking the protection of us good citizens seriously.

    great find .....still ploughing my way through ...but generally vindicates my position that bentonite improves the grounding of an earth connection.

    sorry bob seems you've missed out again

    never let it be said that not trying something will make you an expert.

    I'm not quite sure how it's use mixed in with the soil as part of an active earth corelates to being used connected to an earth wire in a plastic tub on the living room floor.

    No neither do I......I suppose you can speculate that the negative ion present are in some way acting as a positive sink.

    For those who've asked for samples ....they should be on there way later today !
