Science in the Service of Music

Audio pros say this is "the Holy Grail of audio", "the most important audio breakthrough since the vacuum tube!"

       MusiCoat cures the artificial sound of solid state and digital (e.g. midrange glare, aggressive trebles). MusiCoat upgrades your audio components to sound more like real music, less like artificial 'hi-fi'.
       MusiCoat fluid can totally transform the sound of every audio component in your system, from digital transport to power amp and speaker crossover. MusiCoat helps all audio circuits, including tube and purely digital circuits. We developed MusiCoat from the same technology that creates Tubistor devices; we made this technology portable so you could use it, and it now upgrades passive parts as well as solid state devices.
       Why do solid state devices have sonic problems, including midrange glare and aggressive trebles? And how does MusiCoat fluid cure these problems? Briefly, all active solid state devices (and also most passive parts) are encased in hard insulation materials with poor dielectric qualities, which injure the electrical music signal going through these devices. The electrical polarization of these poor dielectric materials reflects and echoes many times in the body of each transistor, resistor, etc. These multiple reflections, echoing after each musical transient, cause the artificial bright glare that is so obnoxious. A very thin surface coating of MusiCoat, on each transistor, resistor, etc., eliminates these multiple internal reflections that cause sonic glare -- just as very thin coatings on camera lens surfaces eliminate multiple internal reflections within the glass that cause visual glare. That's how MusiCoat allows solid state devices and passive parts with hard cases to sound more musically natural, and to reveal more true musical information, with better transparency. Further technical details are discussed below.
       MusiCoat is very costly and difficult for us to manufacture, but we've made it very easy for you to use. Simply swab MusiCoat on the outside casings of most parts inside your audio component: all solid state devices, all resistors, most capacitors, heat fins and sinks, and the inside of the chassis. Presto! You've dramatically upgraded your entire audio component, for less than $100. MusiCoat gives you a bigger and more musical sonic upgrade than other equipment upgrades costing hundreds, even thousands of dollars. It can make even a modestly priced audio component sound musically refined, as if you had upgraded to another audio component worth thousands more. And MusiCoat helps even the highest end products to sound better.

The Sonic Benefits You'll Hear

       MusiCoat has already been proven by the acid test of public A-B demonstrations to hundreds of high end audio pros at CES, including blind comparisons. Virtually everyone responded with amazed smiles, wide eyes, and dropped jaws, saying MusiCoat is "the Holy Grail of audio", "the most important audio breakthrough since the vacuum tube".
       In the Feb 1997 Hi-Fi News & Record Review, Mike Kent complained about high end solid state exhibits at Britain's biggest annual Hi-Fi Show, saying the sound was clinical, hard, harsh, brittle, and coarse. Why does solid state sound like artificial 'hi-fi' instead of real music?
       Solid state sounds harsh because it adds a hard glare in the vital midrange, and an aggressively bright, brittle edge or glaze in the trebles, while also tilting music's tonal balance toward the clinically lean and thin, robbing music of its natural warmth. Moreover, solid state introduces a chalky white haze that smears treble information, filling in what should be the black of intertransient silence between individual musical sounds.
       These sonic problems explain the cruel paradox of solid state: although sounding brighter than live music or a good tube circuit, solid state actually reveals less of the true musical information. Solid state's artifacts of glare, bright edge, and chalky white haze are obnoxiously harsh in their own right, and they alsoblock or obscure important musical information, without which musical instruments and voices can't sound real.
       The effect is analogous to trying to see through a pane of glass with reflective glare; glare blocks perception of information on the other side of the glass. If the artifact of glare could be removed, we could see more clearly through glass. As you know, science developed thin surface coatings for glass, to stop glare and multiple internal reflections, thus allowing more true visual information to get through glass without being obscured by glare. The thin surface coating of MusiCoat analogously eliminates the glare from multiple reflections inside solid state devices, thus allowing more true musical information to get through.
       Similar sonic problems and artifacts also occur with most passive devices (resistors, capacitors), since they, like solid state devices, are also encased in hard, inferior dielectrics. So these passive parts also need MusiCoat (even in tube circuits).
