WHAT HAPPENS WHEN AUDIO VALVES GET ICY COLD - HINT CRYO TREATMENT CONTENT
Posted by STEVE MYCIUNKA on
Well, we have all heard about it and it's surprising how much some people have to say on the subject too. Have you ever wondered what happens when you cryo treat valves, well, Telefunken knew all about this and produced a film for 1930's cinema goers to show what happens to the valve .
As you can see, a rapid reduction in temperature causes the valve to reach for it's scarf and additionally makes it very grouchy so that when it grabs the electrons that comprise the signal it amplifies, it does so in a very rough and unkind manner. You can see this in the above electron micro-cartoonograph and what is happening is that the rough handling causes the electron to cry and this is what causes distortion and brittleness to the soundstage but you already knew this as the clue is in the name cryo..... £@!%
And if you believe this tall tale, well, I am sure you will also believe the claims made for this innovative treatment. Me, I am amazed at how much hot air is paradoxically expounded on such a chilling subject!!!!
The term cryogenics has it's ætiology from the Greek word cries or κρύο which means icy cold. Another interesting fact is that the private corporation Cryos International is an international network of sperm banks and they receive twenty times the total deposits than Raiffeisen Gammesfeld eG cooperative bank does per annum.
Anyway, more on the subject in a later blog AND on my new treatment which gives equivalent results to cryo treatment of valves AND I OFFER ABSOLUTELY FREE for any valve sold by Mullard Magic
