Like I said. It is a worthless piece of shit designed merely to suck
cash away from utter idiots. It is 100% useless, and contains *maybe*
$20 worth of parts, and that is on the low volume price schedule.
Probably. During college, I designed and built and ambience and
presence meter. It didn't do anything useful but was quite impressive
with all the switches, 10 turn pots, meters, flashing lights, b&w
coil, and warning labels plastered all over the minibox. I would walk
around running vague "tests" which were great for getting me into
places where I really didn't belong. Act preoccupied and keep your
eyes on the meters, and you can go almost anywhere. When I eventually
threw together a resume, I needed some filler, so I added a few lines
on the ambience and presence meter. During subsequent interviews, I
could tell which engineers and managers had a clue if they asked what
the hell I was actually measuring.
Anyway, I like the idea of the audio conditioner. It probably doesn't
do much for the electronics, but perhaps the suspension in my
loudspeakers could use some loosening up.
Tune in, turn on, burn out.

I also built a virginity meter in college, but this is a family
newsgroup, so I won't go there.
The ambience and presence meter had a practical basis. In the 1960's,
the various magazines (Popular Electronics, Radio Electronics, etc)
had discovered hi-fi. Articles on the topic were epidemic and
interest was high. Many of the articles used superlatives that defied
definition and measurement. "The amplifier has a velvet texture to
the strings", was typical. Ambience and presence were mentioned so
often in these articles, that I decided it was time to cash in and
build a suitable measurement instrument. The plan was to supply a
line of similar instruments, suitable for mass consumption. My
friends and advisors universally agreed that it was a terrible idea,
which provided the necessary incentive. I wasn't quite sure what it
was going to actually measure, but that could be worked on after I
designed the package. As with all my great ideas, I ran out of time,
money, interest, or something, and never progressed beyond the initial
