Stillpoint's ERS cloth - EMI absorbing polymer


Recommended Posts

Hello,

Anyone tried this in the DAC inside and got any improvements? ERS

 

I may fulling myself, but while listening over the cans connected directly to my DAC I put my hand at the top of the DAC's chassis and I think, the bottom end of the bass and overall coherence of the sonics improved little bit - subtle, but I thought it was noticeable. Now, what may caused this phenomena? Probably not vibrations, because the top lid of the chassis is rather thick and when I put some stone on top of it, wasn't changed anything as putting my hand on top. Any thoughts about it?

 

BTW, do you happen to know where I can buy this ERS paper in Europe for sending to Poland?

This reminds me of a suggestion from someone, to remove the metal top of my dac, saying that it would yeld a nice sonic upgrade... The exact contrary... I forgot to ask how it would improve something, but I haven't communicated with this gentleman for a long time...

There was a site, http://www.less-emf.com, or close that sold lots or RFI and EMF shielding products. These are for lab or medical applications. Not still points, but same type of product. Try there, these are real and cheap.

Whether they do any good is open to debate.

Clarett used as ADC for vinyl rips.

This site does not work unfortunately.

Thanks for posting this Panelhead. Here is the video about using ERS, but not so detail how the measurement was done and what actually.

I have also read this article, interesting:

Any thought about it? The point is to lower the noise floor somehow in already built product if possible.

There was a previous thread which might be of some value: http://www.computeraudiophile.com/f10-music-servers/anyone-tried-ers-cloth-computer-audiophile-pocket-server-17735/

 

I installed a large piece on the inside top of the case, a smaller piece over the CPU, and a piece on the outside bottom. I was careful not to cover any of the cooling openings. It was a long time ago and I can't recall the specific nature of its effects. I used 1/4 inch kapton tape to keep it in place.

Yes, saw it, but quite old and without much clue imho.

Perhaps it may be best in this instance to spend a little more initially on a steel ,or steel + aluminium front and rear panels case ?

A metal case can also aid with heat dissipation.

How a Digital Audio file sounds, or a Digital Video file looks, is governed to a large extent by the Power Supply area. All that Identical Checksums gives is the possibility of REGENERATING the file to close to that of the original file.

Thanks for the suggestion, Alex. However, while I initially thought that the case of my CAPS v3 Carbon was made of plastic, I found after removing the cover that it is actually made of steel or some metal alloy. Since installing the ERS cloth many months ago, I have made a number of other changes to my system. I never did go back and remove the ERS cloth to see how the system sounds without it. Now that I am very familiar with the sound of my system as presently configured, it probably would be a good idea to do that. Heat is not an issue as the CAPS runs quite cool to the touch.
