  1. PM sent, thanks for the prompt response.
  2. My Shanti , after a couple of weeks use , its transformer started to hum, gradually more, so after 2 weeks, i shut it down. It is the only device in my set-up with a transformer that hums. Top bad, i used itcto power my qutest, and before it started to hum, i was quite happy.
  3. HIP influences, what do you mean with that?
  4. Excellent, Thanks for the elaboration. In particular the transmembrane potential part struck me. My grandson has a syndrom where this part is disturbed, resulting in serious dis-functioning of amongst others his hearing . It also gives a serious hint in the capabilities, therefore also its sensitivity to disturbances in its functioning. During the past 40 years or so i have had the experience of interacting with people with hearing dis-abilities. Which in the context of hifi gives me a deep appreciation of what i can hear, despite the damages to my own hearing. back to the op, whilsth the hearing system is similar, we do not hear the same.
  5. I cannot see how we can separate the hearing system from interpretation. Your example of a train f.i. is an interpretation. Our hearing and vision adapts amongst others on what we focus on. So "training" leads to adaptation of our hearing. This mechanism however is true for all human beings. Also "healthy" is a discutable assumption. We all suffer some form of damage to our hearing system during our life, not to mention the impact of aging. However the effects do not have to be similar. Although this is also an assumption, but feedback from specialists confirms this. Interesting topic 😉
  6. No we not even hear the same. Our hearing physically (in the brain) continues to adapt (add connections) based on what we hear.
  7. This is basically how photography works. And how rendering on screen/display or on a paper print work. Nothing new on this. So it is not tricking in a strikt sense. What i was told by neurologic specialists, our nerveus system also transmits in pulses, not a continuous signal.
  8. Mine has 5.3volt on both when not loaded. So far functioning fine. Seems you have a faulty one.
  9. Shanti arrived, of the transformer 2 screws were tight, one required still about half a turn to be tight, the last one i needed plyers to hold the nut to tighten the screw, about half a turn. started up fine, both negatieve floated above ground regardless of the polarity of the mains plug. About 26 volts ac. Output voltage 5.3 v dc, noise not measurable. Unit is quiet. Now connected to my Qutest, Will return with findings.
  10. My Shanti is on its way to the Netherlands, ordered via Audiophonics.fr , will post my findings. Will be used to power supply a Chord Qutest.
  11. Interesting beverage, looking forcit now in the Netherlands 😎
  12. A large part of what you are telling i can follow. But not what you mean with momentum. (Its language, my english is rusty) Can you explain what you mean with momentum and never be stopped? Also what i miss is damping, ie to reduce the amplitude by conversion into another form of energy like heat. (Assuming one gets the vibration into that without any reflections)
  13. Hi Frank, that part i know already, like your examples those are about (A-C) power cables, like in cars etc. But both articles do not show anything about longer duration. Also what i could not find, are analyses of how these type of connections somehow add noise or distortion to the flow of current, or signal if applied in a signal cable. Or if applied in an A-C-power cable what happens when a power surge from the power supply is triggered. I know from my past that copper quality of a conductor matters, so does crimp connections matter? Research into that aspect is what i am looping for. Will keep digging, but any pointer is welcome 😉
