    Spending too much on your sound system?

    You may be purchasing Digidesign ICON consoles for your studio, but nothing compares to being led in to buy this:

    Silver Rock Signature Knob

    "

    Good vibrations, Bad vibrations it’s all about vibrations!! RAM would like to introduce a new signature level knob developed for the mighty Silver Rock potentiometer. The standard bakelite knob is certainly the best sounding compromise... but now Audio Consulting has taken this aspect of the Silver Rock much further. The new knobs are custom made with beech wood and bronze where the bronze is used as the insert to mount to the stem of the volume pot. The beech wood is coated several times with C37 lacquer for best sound as pointed out by Dieter Ennemoser. How can this make a difference??? Well, hearing is believing as we always say. The sound becomes much more open and free flowing with a nice improvement in resolution. Dynamics are better and overall naturalness is improved. Here is a test for all you Silver Rock owners. Try removing the bakelite knobs and listen. You will be shocked by this! The signature knobs will have an even greater effect…really amazing! The point here is the micro vibrations created by the volume pots and knobs find their way into the delicate signal path and cause degradation (Bad vibrations equal bad sound). With the signature knobs micro vibrations from the C37 concept of wood, bronze and the lacquer itself compensate for the volume pots and provide (Good Vibrations) our ear/brain combination like to hear…way better sound!!"


    "Knobs can easily be installed on all versions of the Silver Rock potentiometer."

    Price: $485.00
    Shipping Weight: 0.50 pounds

    500 bucks for a 99 cent pot knob. Wow!

    PS: Laquer is flammable.

    All it's missing is a differential girdle spring on the up end of the gram-meter... what good is it without that?

    Choke, cough, sputter...

    What a crock of ... Surely this has to be a joke. Look, I'm laughing.

    I know of no way that a pot knob could affect the sound of anything, do you? Will some duh-head actually fall for this crapola?

    Thanks for bringing this to our attention. I'm going to order a six-pack of them right now. Duh...

    Hope you're well,

    Alex.

    You don't see the differential girdle spring because it's positioned behind the Binger Gear Rod and the gram-meter is under connected to the Tweezer Bolt, which in place hold any vibration to be absorbed within the Basel Adapter.
    Worth every penny I say! Yes, every penny. Considering the cost of manufacturing, assembly, foresting, shipping, skilled craftsmen, executives, and most of all display ads and retailing! $500 should cover!

    Ah, thank you, it's hard to see beyond the logarithmic wooding... I didn't think they were there!

    I'm gonna come out with knobs made of pyramid-shaped crystals, blessed by druidic priests. AND they'll be cheaper, at only $484.95 (+S&H).
