How can someone believe in ultra-high end racks, still points, cable risers, shakti stone style room treatments, etc. all making an audible difference and at the same time have all manner of junk sitting on top of source components, amps, pre-amps etc. and not believe that is making a difference. Unless you're telling me Fremer has specifically placed that garbage on his equipment in order to further tune the room. There is JUNK everywhere. CD and product cases on every rack, touching all of the equipment. Cables coiled up and laying on top of gear. He's got random non-audiophile stuff plugged in everywhere. I just can't reconcile the "everything makes a difference" attitude (and he literally says that phrase) with the condition of his room.
