xl_groovy_lilac_curtains.jpgThis is another one of those Beltian techniques where people just can’t see a relationship between the “tweak” and the “effect”. So either they deny their own experience and convince themselves that they didn’t hear what they know they just heard, or they don’t deny it, and are blown away by thinking about what just happened. If you want to see how it goes for you, here’s how that works…

Simply fold back one corner of one curtain in your listening room, and pin it in place with a safety pin. You are in effect, “cutting corners” here, changing the shape of the object. The higher you fold back the corner, the greater the effect (you can go too far, and then it’s not so good). The conventional crowd, in trying to explain away this technique, wrongfully hypothesize that it is simple diffraction of sound pressure waves in the listening room (because that’s the closest conventional scientific-sounding theory that fits). Which is really fanciful thinking as it is. But, easy enough to prove otherwise. Doing the same to a curtain in an adjacent room will have a similar effect.
