Bottom Line:   
I stuck one in my belly button, and I could channel Johnny Cash. He sang "Green Green Grass of Home" to me from beyond the grave. The most etheral music experience I ever had.

Bottom Line:   
After seeing an ad in FI for $60 ceramic speaker cable supports (to raise cables off conducting carpets and floors) and seeing my friend use OdorEaters for the same purpose, I had a flashback to my youth. To install an electric fence around our horse pasture in rural Minnesota, we nailed insulating ceramic tubes into wooden posts, then strung the electricity-conducting wire between them. I figured surely these devices must have many of the beneficial properties of their more-expensive and specialized brethren.
I called my dad, and he procured some American FarmWorks WP22 ceramic insulators from the local Hardware Hank in Pine Island, MN($5.50 for 25 of them). These white, tubular insulators are just over an inch tall and 3/4 inch in diameter. The surface has smooth grooves, so that an electric fence wire can be wrapped around them without sliding off. I laid the tubes on their sides beneath my speaker cables, suspending the cables off the ground. I used about 20 insulators, which supported the four cables that lead to my main speakers (my CSW Ensembles have separate woofer enclosures).

Much to my dismay, it actually worked! I listened to reference material and some new purchases that had been getting heavy rotation in my changer: XTC's Apple Venus; Cheiften's Tears of Stone; Cannonball Adderly on DVD; Miles Davis' Kind of Blue, etc. There was a definite improvement in the treble -- the higher the note, the better the improvement. Some brightness and harshness disappeared.

Perhaps the best benefit was that I distinctly hear more "air" in the music, making voices (and breathing) sound more realistic. Notes decayed more naturally. Cymbals sounded more crisp and real. The overall effect was three-dimensional. I gave my surplus insulators to a friend, who reported similar benefits for both the speaker cables and the interconnects (where the connects touch the rack).

I have heard bigger improvements in my system (the MSB Link DAC comes to mind), but this ranks right up there with going from Radio Shack Gold to Kimber Hero cables. For $5, this is a steal. Here in CT, I now have located the American FarmWorks WP36 insulators (larger, and perhaps a better for bigger cables) at the local Agway store. On the web, try http://www.farm-home.com/, which stocks the WP36 under "Ranch and Farm Supplies" (30 day refund).

I am anxious to hear other people's results!
