What a great idea! Bypass audio and instead send signals directly to the brain through... telepathy? Love it! I wonder if it’s two-directional for real communications? Can it also communicate with the dead?

Oh, I get it! It’s communicating directly to the brain through expectation bias. That makes sense — it just needs to be expensive enough for this to work well.

I was about to amend my post to say this but, rather, I think the post is an attempt to bypass the brain.

Hey it passed the blind listening test. 

 

 A/B/A/B/A switching, non-blind listening…the effect is an improvement in the performance of the system. And our current setup is already at a level of very high resolution, without the loss of musicality.

 

This is one of a number of variations upon blind listening tests.  Not at all like unreliable biased sighted listening.  

 

:)

 

Oh and when asked how it worked A.J's response is very reassuring. 

 

Your last question: How does the Oase work or, what is the essence of the Oase, I like to keep unanswered. This is to avoid unauthorised use of the applied technology.

And always keep in mind: Cognitive biases, like seeing optical illusions are a sign of a normally functioning brain. We all have them, it’s nothing to be ashamed about, but it is something that affects our objective evaluation of reality.

HI,

On a serious note the article states :

"The Extender emits a signal which communicates direct with the brain."

The article states it is a Scalar Wave - which is still an electromagnetic wave.

Any piece of equipment that sends an EM wave into the brain should undergo health and safety testing.

There are beneficial effects of EM waves on the body, as there are also detrimental effects.

This product, without any testing and assurance that it does not harm the body/brain, is a potential serious health risk.

Should not be sold.

Regards,

Shadders.

You are assuming the device does anything at all.

Agreed.

Glamorous women do  that to me all the time.

The level of glamour needed to send the signal has an inverse relationship to the number of beers or bourbons I've consumed..

Apparently scientific consensus is that there is no such thing.

Hi,

If it transmits, then it will be an EM wave. Just because of marketing hype using the word Scalar, does not mean it does not transmit anything.

If it does not transmit anything, then it is being advertised falsely.

Maybe if someone were to open the box, we could see what is inside.

Regards,

Shadders.

The reason why this is interesting is because vhd is reputable who is supposedly selling a snakeoil device. Well, anything interacting with the speaker load can make a significant difference but in regards to EM interaction with our audio processing center that is almost certainly BS unless there is research in that area I’m unaware of.

 

The Van Den Hul Stradivarius phono cartridges are amongst the best. His cables are highly regarded and used in high end audiophile recording studios like Channel Classics. If he’s legit why would he jeprodize his reputation with (supposedly) snakeoil and/or trickery?

I suggest you get one and try it out. That's the only way to know for sure. Of course, you'll probably want to upgrade the power cable, first.

Well do it yourself scalar wave devices consist of coils wound with a pair of wires.  You send a signal in opposite directions on each wire. The magnetic fields cancel out. It soaks up power, and no EM wave is generated.  Presumably the scalar wave is where the power goes.  Or so is the spiel about this.  

 

So it works just as advertised, assuming it has such a coil.  Soaks up a wee bit of power, generates no measurable EM wave, but is claimed to make an unmeasurable scalar wave.  

And always keep in mind: Cognitive biases, like seeing optical illusions are a sign of a normally functioning brain. We all have them, it’s nothing to be ashamed about, but it is something that affects our objective evaluation of reality.

If you pay $5000 for a black box (or brown) without any explanation of what it does, of course you are going to love the sound.

 

Wonder why it needs the signal cable? Shouldn't it have some kind of sensors or something to make it wireless?
