here's how they work

All energy is vibration. As your components make music they are producing vibrations that need to exchange with the environment's natural energies and waves in the air and solid materials. MGA cones make this exchange of energy "in tune" allowing the component to give it's maximum performance without distortion.

(Need to eliminate references to products)

Support discs do not work. Never have never will. People buying discs to protect their surfaces are completely defeating the purpose of the point or cone. For this reason we have designed the round point cone in both the solid and bell designs. Oddly enough while designing this cone we found an amazing discovery. Many tube components like a round cone as compared to a pointed cone. Tubes that seem to sound slightly weak and distorted clean up and lower wattage amps seem to increase in perceived power output. MGA Cones R (round) are made the same height as the points so they may be part of the interchangeable tweaking.

What is tuning your system?

Tuning your system is when all of the parts of your setup are passing the same signal through the entire audio chain. You may have the greatest system in the world but out of tune it will not compete against a setup that is in-tune. Tuning involves the 3 elements of audio, electrical, mechanical and acoustical. We call these the audio trilogy. All 3 of these have one thing in common energy (vibration).

How does tuning work?

Everything that vibrates is orbital (spherical). There is a support system of motion (energy) that keeps this orbit in tact. As this system forms a growth pattern it too is spherical and is called a wave (signal). As waves multiply they develop an even larger support system called harmonics. Harmonics are what keep the wave (fundamental) in-tune and able to interact with similar waves.

Your audio system host over 20 thousand fundamentals (frequencies). These frequencies are part of a music language called notes. The notes are captured in the recording process and replayed in playback. Your audio system and the music playing on it both require a mechanical pathway that can reproduce the entire music scale structure. When the harmonics are not supporting the fundamentals properly this is called distortion. Distortion is the taking away from or adding to the audio signal without being in-tune.

How do Sonic Cones and Bells help my system stay in-tune?

Sonic Cones and Bells are designed to allow the vibrations of components and speakers to make a full range transfer to the next level of mechanical grounding with the harmonics and fundamentals intact and in-tune. Because they are themselves tuning devices they act as beacons for energy to gather and send allowing the dissipation of the audio signal to broaden and complete their cycle of natural decay. This keeps the harmonics vibrant so that the fundamentals can be delivered with less distortion. The more we fine tune the fundamentals and their harmonics the more real the playback becomes.

How do I start tuning my components?

Lets start with your electronic components. First, remove the feet. Even if your not going to put cones where the feet are located take them off as they are and will throw your component out of tune. While your doing so tap on the bottom of the component and listen how different it sounds when you tap on different areas. Unless your component is dampened (a bad thing) on the bottom you will hear how the different parts inside the unit change pitch depending on where they are attached, how much weight and mass they have, and how tight they are mounted.

We recommend you de-torque as many screws as you can get to (including inside the chassis). When screws are too tight it forces energy to gather around them and causes distortion. Your parts need to vibrate as freely as possible to give an open, life like sound.



Your components sound like what they are sitting on or touching. Is your component in-tune with what it is sitting on? One way to tell is the size of your soundstage.

If your soundstage is not going past the boundaries of the room chances are you have signal blockage. Same is true if you stand up and move to one side while the music is playing and the sound goes into the speakers. If you have wood shelves (solid wood, particle board, MDF) your sound will complete mechanical grounding. If not you should place a piece of wood (we have recommendations for this) between your component and shelf. To view extreme mechanical grounding http://tuneland.techno-zone.net/t71-mga-platforms

How do you know when harmonics are getting in tune?

When harmonics are in-tune you will have an increase in volume at the same level setting, and a larger more full soundstage. As you shed distortion this will continue till you have the sense of being in the room with the recording instead of looking at a soundstage from a distance with undersized instruments. You will also notice that your sound is tonally balanced without fatiguing. Fatiguing comes from the lack of harmonics your system is able to produce. Harmonics are not distortion, the lack of harmonics is.

Do all components need to be tuned?

Chances are, unless you have the identical conditions in your home as all of the component's manufacturing facilities that you are using and the identical system they use, your system is at least some what out of tune. We have witnessed systems more than double in performance just by tuning the bottoms of their components.

Do Sonic Cones & Bells work well with speakers?

It's a speakers job to vibrate more than any other component in the audio chain. It is after all where the sound meets the room in two areas: one acoustically, two mechanically. If the mechanical part is not in-tune it is impossible for the speaker to deliver a pure sound wave. Voicing your speakers with the floor is one of the most important parts of the music connection.
