Oddly enough, the place where they work better than anything I have ever tried -- and that means a lot of tweaky things! -- is under the CD players. All my audiophile friends use the pillow under their CD player, no exceptions. It’s the easiest, cheapest tweak with the biggest payoff in the history of the world!
What is the magic pillow? It looks pretty much like a pillow you would rest your head on to sleep at night, and the reason for that is simple: that's what it is: a bed pillow. But it's filled with a special material that makes it ideal for reducing vibration and for some reason also has beneficial effects on electronic equipment. I make no claims to understanding why it works so well. All I know is what my ears tell me, and they say the thing is a miracle of science!
Because of the nature of all tweaks, we offer a 30 day money back guarantee. If you don't like the pillow in your system, send it back for a refund (less shipping of course).
NOTE: The dimensions of the pillow are 20.5"x15.5"x 2.5". It weighs about five pounds.
One Customer's Response to the Pillow
"As for the Magic Pillow - so far it's awesome.
I've got about ten hours or so of listening to all kinds of CDs. From
good quality to not so good. I don't know how to put my experience into
"In a nutshell: I can play my CDs LOUD and the sound awesome. I used to
think it was my sound room acoustics, but CDs sounded good to a point
and anything louder and the bass would get - well - no good and the
midrange would get ringing and the highs seemed to be too loud.
"Now with the magic pillow, while playing CDs loud, the bass is just
right - full, with good PUNCH. (Not boomy and not "tight") The midrange
HAAARRR is gone and the highs much smoother.
"DCC Heart Dreamboat Annie always sounded smooth to me, but now it seems
to have great bass kick and unobscured highs. Cymbals sound right
without being harsh.
"Regular CDs - some sounded much better (Natalie Merchant Tigerlilly is
actually quite good and sweet) while others still had their shortcomings
of piercing highs or no bass."
Hey, welcome to the world of bad digital -- the pillow can't fix everything! If it could we wouldn't need records.
