Pretty decent? The difference between decent and great is self-explanatory. This contact enhancer is for use with systems that sound great.
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.

SERIOUSLY, all jokes aside, these products (and claims including some from cable makers) are EXTREMELY HARMFUL to our hobby and industry as a whole.

Outsiders, skeptics or anyone really, can just point at these and say the audio industry is just one big scam, and the 10k speakers are also just voodoo magic, probably sound the same as the Bose, or the %k class A amplifier is also a scam and will sound the same as the 100 quids made in China amp.

I absolutely agree, 100%. It's BS like this that makes people point and laugh at audiophiles, when, I'm certain, most audiophiles aren't gullible enough to swallow such BS, but going off some of the posts, it's quite obvious that some do, and these are the people who every right-thinking person facepalms at, yet they're the very people this product is aimed at... People with far more money than sense.

I'd blanche at the idea of paying £20 for a 10 ml bottle of this stuff or anything like it, but £200 is just taking the you know what. Strictly for people who have more money than they know what to do with.

An acid test would be an A/B comparison with DeOxit, which is £29.95 for a 142g aerosol can (enough to share with many friends) or £5.79 for a 2ml tube, both via amazon.

Or just buy some IPA and conductive silver grease, for 1/10 the price, if you're so deluded that you think your speaker connections aren't already good enough.
