It really isn't. It's a contact enhancer for people who think their system sounds great. It's a contact enhancer for people who want to tell others how great their system sounds and how much they paid for their contact 'enhancer'. It's a contact enhancer for people who are so gullible and so ill-educated that they think it could possibly improve their awesomeness and the awesomeness of their awesome HiFi. It's a contact enhancer for people who like to look down their nose at others, because they think their gullibility somehow equates to superiority, but deep down they know that they're simply attempting to adopt a stance of superiority. This might have worked back in pre-internet days, before anyone with an ounce of sense could easily debunk these ridiculous myths that some audiophiles are still attempting to perpetuate, but in this wonderful age of easy access to information, it's the simplest of tasks to discover that snake oil like this is nothing more than a bragging right for deluded bullsh1tters.Pretty decent? The difference between decent and great is self-explanatory. This contact enhancer is for use with systems that sound great.
