Not really audiophoolery, but close. https://teslastyle101.com/tesla-radiation-balancer/ . And https://5gbioshield.com/ .

This guy had a very serious scientific career, outlined in his CV https://teslastyle101.com/curicullum-vitae/ . But something very peculiar happened in 2000...

Messianic!

The illustration clearly shows the invisible dome of protection covering your whole home, so for something so powerful, fixing the sound of your hifi ought to be just a trivial side-effect. Milk will last longer without a fridge as well.

Once you crack this pseudoscience lark, there is no longer anywhere you have to stop. You can, indeed, become a or the god. Though I reckon it's safer to just stop at Chief Prophet otherwise someone's going to deduce that omnipotence and omniscience together leave you vulnerable to the accusation that you're responsible for everything.

We'll know he's succeeding if there is a sudden flood of odd little elliptical meters on the surplus market.

A recommendation from the late Dr Masaru Emoto no less (which, bless him, is not worth a great deal according to the scientific community)

The whole document smells more like a subtle induction to a wallet emptying device rather than the CV of a man who has drifted away from reality. Highly dubious in my opinion!

Yes I saw an article about the 5gbioshield. It's actually a 5 USB stick you can buy on the internet. Oh sorry, of course it isn't they take them and do something very scientific to make them worth almost 400.

Poor, poor Mr. Tesla- he must be turning in his grave (and without recourse to a 3-phase motor, either). His name seems to have become tacked on to every passing fad of pseudo-science and swivel-eyed fruit-loopery in an attempt to give it some form of credibility.

They ought to be connected up to Tesla's machine shown in the attached. That would sort them out.

Charlatans have tried to attach themselves to every scientific name that has achieved greatness, and the profitably gullible have heard of. Einstein, etc. Tesla had a vein of slightly dodgy showmanship in him, so I guess he was a natural for them.

I guess they're still uncertain about Heisenberg.

Ha ha ha! They also have no idea when they use the word "quantum" it means a physical entity that has inherent uncertainty.

Like the Newton's two-slit experiment when turning down the intensity so that a single photon is in the instrument at any time. And you still get a two slit interference pattern https://www.teachspin.com/two-slit .

Yes Tesla did have a number of strange quirks. Wardenclyffe would probably not have worked, and he spent a good chunk of his life trying to get funding for death rays and the like.

But Newton, once he had got Principia and Opticks out of his system, spent much of the rest of his long life perusing alchemy and trying to transmute elements.

Newton was so detested as a lecturer that no one came to his lectures. But he had to deliver them because his position at Cambridge required that he had to do so. So he would turn up to an empty classroom, deliver the lecture, and then leave.

Here you go - https://www.crystalcable.com/product...ltimate-dream/

The price? 21,350 for a 1 metre pair.

The guy that owns Crystal Cable also owns Siltech https://www.siltechcables.com/, spendor https://www.spendoraudio.com/ and https://sme.co.uk/audio/turntables/ . Indian rich entrepreneur and high end audio enthusiast called Ajay Shirke. He was the guy behind the decision to supply SME tonearms *only* with an SME record deck.

Almost forgot - last year he acquired the Garrard brand name, and bought Loricraft, which had the right to manufacture Garrard-derived decks. Now a pale shadow https://loricraftaudio.co.uk/ .

This is the sort of deck that Loricraft used to design, that Shirke acquired when he took over Loricraft https://hometheaterreview.com/garrar...able-reviewed/

That's good.

It will allow them to concentrate on the purity of their holistic offering with less distraction from sales.
