    Ok. This happened so organically randomly that I find it hard to believe that I, yes, I am the first. Here it is: You just put your cold beer can be on top of the Magni. I know, fucking genius right?

    Big caveat. You knew it was just too fucking good to be true, didn’t you? As you drink your increasingly warm beer, the Bernoulli forces disalign with the corelious force in such a way as to dis-positively affect analog signals in the same quantum frame. Long story short, bosons like beer. Try to keep your magni3+ adequately cooled during the upcoming warm months.

    Stay thirsty my friends.

    I really feel like this mods synbeeregy has helped me to pry open my 3rd eye. “Red and yellow came to be.”

    I have heard rumors of some noobs trying to use bottled beer. This just won’t work. You need the metal to metal connection to the bosons in the beer to be directly coupled or you incur acute trans conductance anomaly cascades as the wave function collapses. Really reduces plankton density.

    @Grattle Your posts have elucidated some previously impenetrable truth. The warmth and richness of Schiit's Continuity™ constant-transconductance output stage is due to beer filled capacitors. As the amp warms up, so does the precious fluid. This is why you don't need to mod the Asgard 3 to benefit from the misalignment of Bernoulli forces. Cheers!

    I've started my beer-rolling adventures. Down the rabbit hole I go!

    I thought I would begin with a popular and mild beer. I feel that using a "standard" beer will give me a good reference point going forward. For this reference, I chose the ubiquitous "Bud Light".

    I did ABX tests by closing my eyes, and having my assistant randomly lift the can from the amp. As I was wearing headphones, I couldn't hear the noise of it's removal/replacement.

    After rigorous testing, requiring the consumption of 8 cans, here is my assessment of the effect of a 12 ounce can of Bud Light cooled to 37 degrees F.

    As a light beer, Bud Light has very mild sonic effects. Bass frequencies seem to be unaffected. I wasn't able to discern a difference to any statistically significant degree. I suspect that bass depends more on the color of the beer.

    Midrange was where I found the most improvement. In 87% of the tests, I was able to successfully discern the can placement. The sustain and decay of Adam Jones' guitar in Pneuma were much clearer with a fresh, cold Bud Light. As I drank the beer, the effects seemed to magnify. The slight panning effect from left to right in the intro was much clearer after the amp acclimated to the continued proximity to Bud Light. Very pleasant! Switching to Cake's "Comfort Eagle", I immediately found that the horns were more clear and focused. Again, the amp seems to appreciate the directly connected source of bosons. As I drank the beer, the effect lessened. Placing a fresh beer on the amp brought the improvement back immediately, and stronger. It's like, the more beer the amp is exposed to, the better it sounds. The held horn notes at the 2:00 mark of "Short Skirt/Long Jacket" really make me appreciate the extra boldness of the trumpet.

    Upper frequency improvements are evident to even the most casual of listeners. I suspect that the carbonation bubbles are causing sympathetic vibration to the amplifier components. The slight vibration seems to help the electrons flow more freely through the transistors. The beer level in the can, and the elapsed time after opening both contribute to the gradual return to stock sound as you drink it, so be sure to have a full and chilled can ready for when you really want to focus on that old favorite. I'm really excited about this finding because I like it when my electrons are unimpeded.

    For those looking forward to the next installment of my study, we will be looking at the effects of a more full bodied beer. I'm also working on a modified koozie by removing the bottom. Findings indicate that cold temps and good can contact are paramount to the mods success.

    Do you have the part numbers for the Rubycon beer caps? I may re-cap my speaker amp if I can get the Modello infused ones. They're really hard to find. I've seen the knockoffs on ebay for cheap, but I've heard that they use O'Douls because it's so cheap and available. You really need the alcohol though, as it is the catalyst that provides the free bosons in the solution.

    Ok - here's a preview. First, I need to ask a few questions, as I'm new to audio reviewery. Ok. When you are doing your serious listening, and taking measurements, and ABX'ing, can you, on the same electrical circuit, be smoking a turkey breast in a smoker. Outdoors.

    Can, you also, hypothetically, also be smoking a bowl? Outdoors?

    I ask because I am getting some real work done evaluating my standard beer against SPDIF vs USB using my modi multibit, and raspberry pi with spdif hat, and my iPhone 8 with camera connection kit. I realize that this kind of gear is way out of some budgets. I'm here for you bro. I will be your ears. I will be the voice in the wilderness! Oh, I had a question didn't I?

    What is the minimum level of stupidity allowed before measurements become tainted and invalid. I think it's a good question to ask considering some of the shit I read these days. Has anyone really met Jude or Amir? Do they appear similar? I digress.

    Early results are leaning heavily towards the coaxially aligned electrons travelling in the cable realm in orderly lines. I hope that damn turkey doesn't cost me the night's results.

    Ok. I’m so sorry. I’ve kind of skipped ahead. I’ve gone from beer rolling to more massive and surface area effective containers with more hydro adaptive molecular synnergeristic fluids.

    I have gone Yeti Tumbler and Rum & Coke Magni 3+ mod. It seems that the combination of more surface conductive area we expose to frame drag reducing organic molecules, yields Einsteinium results.

    I employed the Google Chemical analysis search tool to effective results. Rum esters combine with bosons to unlock quantum gateways into probable futures where the sound heard probability cloud has a net positive field charge. This results in brain-boson excitation of the eardrum, making it more sensitive to cool music.

    I will edit later with graphs and waterfalls and stuff.

    edit: feel free to relocate this thread to audio science as you see fit.

    Have you heard of the lightbulb mod for Yggdrasil? Well, it's not so much a mod as it is a life hack. Get something like this minus the plants and disapproval from your spouse: https://www.homedepot.ca/product/hdx-3-shelf-storage-unit/1000790397
    Adjust the middle shelf as necessary and put your Yggdrasil on top. Now for the awesome trick, put a lamp underneath with a regular incandescent or halogen bulb. Not only will this provide a lovely glow for your gear, but the heat also drastically cuts down on the warmup time. No longer will you have to wait 24 hours for optimal performance, thermal equilibrium will be reached within minutes! Studies have shown that this is also the exact amount of time required to go retrieve a whisky and ice. Or a fruity vodka cooler in a sippy cup. I won't judge.
