    You don't even have to put it in your player it goes on top of it when you have a disc in. :rotfl:

    But just think how much better I'd be at Gamecube games if I'd used this thing!

    As one of these is apparently good for 10 individual uses perhaps we should arrange a group buy and share it around, I need to do:
    3* PC drives
    Gamecube
    DVD player
    CD player
    Portable CD player
    Portable MD player.

    so there will still be 2 uses left on it when I've finished. I'll be able to watch DVD's even quicker and with less of that damn annoying high-frequency edge. :)

    Actually, I've just been looking at part of their site:
    http://angelsoundaudio.co.uk/html/golden_sounds.html

    and I think I may be better off investing in some Golden Sound Acoustic Discs to put in the corners of my ceiling and some Ultratweeters for my speakers, apparently they work in the microwave frequency and thus rearrange the signals within the speaker cable that's actually inside my speakers. :)

    Unbelievable- and they said witchcraft died out centuries ago.Even more worrying is that some poor souls are actually buying this stuff!

    Maybe this will stop my Sega Saturn discs skipping and magically bring the graphic quality up to that of the Xbox 360 :D

    The best thing is, it's obviously some cheap little badly made Chinese memory card. For people with more money than sense.

    I sent them a question and asked, I'll let you all know the reply, then we can all buy these fantastic devices.

    But what if they're not making it up. :eek:
    Surely that would be worth £15 to make 10 of my discs sound better? I'd actually rather it worked on the lower quality recordings better myself but we can't have everything.

    Hornydragon, as an elec engineer you should already know about this sort of technology shouldn't you? :confused:
    :)

    I've found this site:
    http://www.machinadynamica.com/machina64.htm

    which provides a detailed account of how these chips work.

    I'm only about half way down the page but curiously, the physics is actually accurate so anyone who's interested in learning about low-dimensional semiconductors should have a read. :)

    EDIT:
    I've just finished reading the whole article and it's correct up until the section "How Light Enters the CD Player Case" which is just a load of crap. So even if this chip plainly isn't going to work, some of you have had an introduction to low-dimensional semiconductor engineering and how the lasers inside your CD/DVD players are manufactured!
    ;)

    I know I'm sad but I've just read it all. 20 years ago I did a BSC in Physics and although I did learn a lot about things that I have never used since some things are stranger than people imagine. The amount of funding that goes into very oddball things was hard to believe, and I've no reason to doubt that it still goes on to even greater levels today.

    However I won't be buying any, but I might cover my players in a heavy dark material and stand a housebrick on top of them because I've been told that does improve jitter and hence the sonic abilities of players. But I have never tried it, yet.

    Ken Kessler has some things to say about it on page 138 of the June 2005 edition of Hi-Fi News.....

    and here's the manufacturer's website

    thats was possibly the most rambling and in-coherent explanation of anything i have ever read..... but i did like this bit!!!!
    they dont say where you have to place it, but give no reason why you can't put it to one side or underneath.....neither does it go on to state what the thing actually does...........but fair play for trying

    How exactly do they think a read-only piece of shiny plastic can be "upgraded"?
