    I and Patrick have been going around the forums and youtube to try to teach skeptics about audio and what's the greatest way to improve sound and how to spend money wisely.

    You spend thousands on a receiver for passive audio system is stupid. You will have worse sound quality and basically giving away money to the large corporations that make fancy audio electronics.

    Don't spend too much on DAC and amps. You'll need descent speakers but even that, spending anything over two grand is a waste of money.

    Nope, upgrading audio interconnect cables are not that smart either. The biggest benefit of gain in SQ is by upgrading power cables. That's rite. I too was a skeptic (I still have trouble understanding how power cables make difference to sound even now) about power cables and why upgrading them is necessary but after trying out a few at coconut-audio it changed my life for good. Go to youtube and search for "White Night power cables" or "Unreal Power cables" or "coconut-audio power cables" or "cheez's audio" lol. I am "IamAnoobieCheez" at youtube. You can find me there I am famous as heck. I don't mean to troll but people tell me I'm the professional troll or a successful troll (ha ha)... those that make comments like that are the skeptics, like yourself wuahahahahahahahahahahaha


    Got questions? Feel free to ask. I don't work for coconut-audio I am his customer and too damn happy with the sound. I spent (still paying) a lot of money on power cables but I am in sound heaven. I get to have eargasm everyday 4 hours a day. Yesterday I took my day off work so I can listen to music for 15 hours.

    So you spend a fortune on a power cable and this makes a massive difference even though the cable in the wall to the socket is just cheap cable!!!!!
    What commission are you on?

    I spent about one half the cost of my new house. Yes it's way more than the cost of my new Lexus vehicle.

    But I am glad I did. You see, I have logic. If I got no sound improvement after spending my very first power cable ($3000) a few years ago I would have stopped right there and got my money back like a lot of folks out there do. But I wet my pants cause it sounds so good so I kept buying more and more. Now I have power cables worth $65,000. $2000 on speakers, $150 on a DAC, $2k on HTPC. That is the perfect buy ratio for audio equipment. It's not the other way around, this is the correct way. Something you will have to learn as it's very different than what you are used to.

    Don't go try upgrading your entire electrical wiring inside the walls in your house. That is retarded stupid as you are wasting money. Oh... you gonna go spend trillions and have power line outside in your city upgraded too? Now that's even more stupid. The reason for that is it will be infested with noise by the time the electricity enters your house. What matters is in the last several feet (or 15ft, or 25ft, lol) of power cables from wall outlet to the audio component. That's where all the change of sound takes place. I know it's hard to believe. What the power cable does is it cleans or "sucks" dirty power out of your receiver, DAC, amp. It works as a noise cleaning system. Not only cleans noise but changes sound due to the resonant properties in the cable. Takes out noise and "patch up" your sound left and right. As a result you get some killa sound ahhh ahahahahahahahahahaha.

    I don't get paid a dime for doing this. That's cause I'm his customer. If we go to court I know I will win because it's the truth and only truth. The only thing that happened is that I spent more money, but I am happy as hell.

    Thanks for replying. I was bored as heck.

    Sure, if you are in a hyper dimensional world, not here on earth, maybe some alien planet with alien technology, I am sure they can have cleaner electricity or some sort of energy that is clean in the entire city. Add alien power cables to your house and you can get even better sound. Well, this ain't alien planet from distant space. You gonna have to deal with what you have. Be thankful there is alien technology power cables available. That's what changes sound so positively. It takes you into hyperspace hypersonic experience. Don't forget, there are a lot of highly priced power cable manufacturers (typically the large corporations like Audioquest, Wireworld, Kimber, etc) that have worse overall sound than STOCK POWER CORDS! That's why some people who tried them they think it's all b.s. about expensive power cables. You are stereotyping. It takes trials and errors. Your patience. Luckily, the guys at anandtech forum introduced me to Patrick. They think I'm retarded so I should get along well with Patrick. Well, I love him.

    Well thanks cheez you have convinced my with your eloquence. In fact I am going to get one for my coffee machine. If they do that for music I cannot imagine what they must do for an expresso.

    Brilliantly surreal or slightly disturbing? I can't make up my mind - but whatever, it's the most entertaining post I've read on avforums since I joined.

    Keep up the good work, cheez (I think?).

    So when I go out and buy this super duper power cable for my TV I should be able to get almost 4K picture quality then........................................

    Almost forgot, if I then tie a fancy knot in the cable will I get even better quality sound and picture?

    But cheez do they only work with new kit? One of my amps is over ten years old and I have been feeding it unfiltered electricity all that time. Surely it is now all furred up with those dirty volts?

    Coconut Audio are for all intense purposes scam artists preying upon the naivety of the misinformed. Some of their publicity material is rather worrying and verges on being pornographic in nature. Firemen, SAnta and this all seem to get a outing on their site.

    Coconut-Audio

    Some of the imagery is more what you'd expect if shopping for marital aids, not that I shop for marital aids that often. I'd hate to come home and find the girlfriend having sex with the hifi, something that seems to be suggested on the web site? Some of the payment schemes seem very generous though.

    You can get the $1 million Adria power cable for just $50,000. Combine it with the 30 year payment plan and pay $139 per month.
    Buy the $10,000 VibraPortal Athena for $500. Use the 30 year payment plan for Artemis power cable ($25,000 introductory offer), and pay $69 per month.
    Buy the $7,000 Megalodon Hanger for $350. Use the 30 year payment plan for Megalodon Digital cable ($10,000 introductory offer), and pay $28 per month.
    Buy the $4,000 Proximity Megalodon Stone for $200. Use the 30 year payment plan for Megalodon SATA cable ($3,600 introductory offer), and pay $10 per month.


    I couldn't find any of the cables with the word "Viagra" in their names, which genuinely surprised me. Maybe they are missing a trick there? :confused:

    I think it might be cheaper to buy an electricity sub station than the Adria power cable?


    Maybe this is someones early attempt at an April fools joke or their experimentation with drugs gone horribly, horribly wrong????


    It wouldn't be so bad if the products actually looked like someone had spent money on the materials to manufacturer the goods, but they appear to be cobbled together from whatever was laying around in the garage? Maybe Duct tape has some magical audio powers as yet undiscovered by the rest of humanity?


    Lastly, if so wonderful then why aren't the major manufacturers simply duplicating these cables and selling them in bulk at a fraction of their price? I see no patented technology or anything else that cannot be replicated without having to spend tens of pounds, never-mind thousands of dollars. Utter and total rip off and please send me a writ asking me to appear in court because coconut audio cannot prove otherwise.
