Put one or two radio transmitters in your room and, the soundstage will be transformed...An example of a bonkers accessory :-

If your speakers and gear live in closer proximity than is ideal and you like high volumes (both of which are true for me), isolation is a good idea. But not at that price...
A quote from the above: "This said, there is no question that the ES-001 is a brilliant and successful bit of engineering. It does exactly what it is intended to do; it is easy to use (once you get the hang of it); and it unquestionably removes blur from and increases the neutrality and completeness of every LP I’ve used it with. If lifelike pitch and timbre, improved image focus, clarified soundstaging, and higher resolution are prime considerations—and how could they not be?—an LP lover could not put $6000 to better use than by purchasing an ES-001. It is not just a work of genius; it is a step change in analog playback and, quite appropriately, one of 2022’s TAS Products of the Year. (For vinyl fans, I’d have to say it is the Product of the Year—or Century.)"This must have gadget helps to centre your records.

A snip at $6k...........
I don't disagree with the concept only the insane price.This reviewer, seems to understand the snake-oil business:
It won't make any difference at all, not even slight. SSDs don't somehow store data better, or read it better, because they have a totally unnecessary power connector and a pair of big capacitors. It's as simple as that. The extras, compared to all other NVME SSDs, are pointless and, serve only to "justify" an over-inflated price.Not sure how much, if only negligible, it will improve the sound?
I suspect you're right, merely intrigued by the idea. I never boo hoo something until it is properly tried and tested but this is academic, neither you nor I, will ever purchase one, we both know it's nuts.It won't make any difference at all, not even slight.

Its just insane that you would lay down £4k for something that might not make any difference, your either very rich and bored or just plain stupid.Yes, you've just bought it.
You got £5 change out of £4000.
But you may not be able to tell whether you've got it switched on or not 🤡
I wonder if this is HiFi equivalent of Virtual Signalling?Its just insane that you would lay down £4k for something that might not make any difference, your either very rich and bored or just plain stupid.
Not to mention the space it takes up and the ugliness of them, some rich people think that having more boxes make music sound better.

I know you own Cyrus equipment so no offence was meant to you, its just to high-light the craziness people go to, to attain mythical sound quality.
