PostSubject: Tuning Tips (harmonic springs)   Fri Oct 02, 2009 6:59 pm

Hi Members,

Harmonic Springs have been in my main diet for tuning for over 35 years. The transferring of energy is a delicate process and is always effected by nature in some way. One of the inventions created to counter balance the variable laws of nature is the spring. When you think about how many of these you use in your every day life it is a little frightening. In the audio world (up till just recently) a spring was a no no because it was not considered part of the absolute family. This way of thinking is starting to loosen up and in our world of tuning will remain an important ingredient.

There are 2 ways that I personally get my springs. One way is to order them the other is to make them myself. Those of you who have gotten springs from me as of late will notice that my springs don't hold much weight like the tempered springs. What they do hold is a ton of sound. As time goes on don't be surprised if I end up making several different models for different applications. Yes, I will make sample packs for you to play with. In the meantime just let me know if you want to try my latest springs (or other toys) and I'll make you up a batch.

I have tried springs under virtually everything in audio.

Playing around with different types, sizes, ODs, materials, and compression has been interesting. Matching up the springs with wood is even more interesting. There is a balance between weight, wood, and spring that mates so well with tuning. I have heard sound stages collapse and sound stages expand by the simplest adjustments using the springs.

By reading this last paragraph you can tell that there are probably many tweaks that can be done with the spring being the core of the tweak. For example: Spring poles for equipment are very effective.

A spring pole is something that I designed that allows you to get maximum girth out of a component. It's a tricky tool but very effective when used properly. The variable compression feature on the spring pole can transform the sound of a transformer, cross-over, chassis or inductor. This device can also be used on speakers and many other parts of the system.

Transfer underneath of an object has to do with gravity and mass. Many times we use products that send too much energy into the ground too quickly or not quick enough. This is a bigger deal than we think because this motion to ground movement is what establishes the transfer rate of a conduit. This is paramount when it comes to balancing our musical content.

Everything has a prefect weight. Because our parts are carrying a vibrating signal they have a vibrational harmonic tone associated with them. If the parts of a system are harmonically balanced we can hear real size and real space being created in our systems. The better the balance the better the space. When these harmonics are out of balance our systems lock into a visible sonic reproduction that happens with every piece of music being the same size. The typical audiophile sound stage is not real as compared to real space sound. Real space sound is the actual space (size) of a recording. One of the things that messes with real space is dampening. Controlling the signal without loosing the content is the goal. The more content we end up with the more our systems are a virtual window to the music.

As we play with springs and the parts that are made from them we will see their value as a main contributor to good sound.

Some have requested to see the "Spring Pole" so here it is.



Feel free to ask me about pricing as it depends on the type of spring and the wood.

Hi Tunees

I just wanted to give you an update on the original Harmonic Springs. Today I was able to land a source and put in a standing order for the springs so let me know when you need more of the original Harmonic Springs.

Hi Zonees

Today Sonic received the original Harmonic Springs. I'm looking forward to hearing about his further experiments with the Springs.

I've been springing into action myself lately and am enjoying the tube like sound I'm able to produce out of my vintage solid state gear. My Technics SA-5360 has been converted into a music machine. This sound conversion is a simple one and pretty much guaranteed by lightening up your unit and applying the Harmonic Springs to the right places under the chassis. I've done tons of vintage components as well as everything that has followed and can pretty much guide you home once I know what you have and how far you are willing to go.
