How much would you pay (Pt 2)?

First there was the $4,700 audio cable.

So now it shouldn't be too much of a stretch for you to imagine the $150 block of wood (on sale now, usually $200).

Oops. I'm sorry, did I say "block of wood" I meant "
Acoustic System Phase Corrector."

According to Pure Music Group, this item
may look like a simple instrument grade maple block," and it does! At least you can't say they're not honest.

Oh, wait. That wasn't the whole sentence. "
The Acoustic System Phase Corrector may look like a simple instrument grade maple block but its inner workings are more complex." It corrects blurring of phase coherency "by disrupting the energy pocket near the floor/front wall interface through a combination of resonance and diffusion."

I'm just sorry they don't have a link to the owner's manual.

[UPDATE: This one gets better. They no longer sell the wood
block one at a time. They now sell them in sets only. Starting at $2,450.]
