In Brian’s own words…
I first met Dennis from Audio Realignment Technologies at the Los Angeles California audio show.
Dennis walked into my display room, he loved the sound of my system and showed me a super clean device he designed to combat an issue that hardly anybody talks about in our industry “EMI” Electro Magnetic Interference.
Transformers, power supplies and audio circuits radiate certain levels of EMI which like RFI contaminate the sound of our Hi-fi systems. It goes unnoticed until you experience the removal of EMI and hear the surprising benefits in sound quality which is not subtle.
I agreed to have a meeting with Dennis after the show in my dedicated Dana Point California sound room. Dennis brought several samples with him to treat my amplifiers, preamp, dac and music server. In addition, we also treated my audio grade breaker panel and later treated my cabling.
With each device installed I could easily hear what these electromagnetic treatments were doing; I mean “Wow!”…I never expected that EMI was such an issue that needed to be addressed.
Some of the many improvements were; big reduction in noise floor, wider and deeper soundstage, impressive improvements in dynamics and presents a much cleaner window into the music.
Needless to say I became a believer in ART products and purchased an entire system of them. I now consider these electromagnetic treatments to be a permanent part of any hi-fi system I build.
Many thanks to Dennis Barish of ART for developing these outstanding products and for digging out the “magical gems” in my million dollar -plus audio system.
