How to use

Like all products, Cold Ray produces best results when used in the most efficient way. Here are some helpful hints.

When placing a Cold Ray piece underneath a cabinet, knock around the bottom of the cabinet to locate spots with greater mass concentration. For optimal results place the Cold Ray pieces under those spots. In most cases these spots are located under heat sinks and transformers. In CD players they are located under the transport. At times it may be necessary to use more then 3 or 4 Cold Ray devices. We found that for a Krell CD player for example, the use of 5 pieces produced best results. Eliminating resonance from the floor is incredibly important and Cold Ray works extremely well when placed under speakers. For better results place 3 or 4 Cold Ray pieces under each speaker.

  • At times it may be necessary to use more than 4 pieces, most commonly in components with heavy and/or delicate transports (CD players, turntables, etc.).
  • For use on hard surfaces.
  • Use under video components for sharper contrast and more natural color.

The effect of Cold Ray is quickly evident. The result is a much better sounding system, with greater clarity, amplification, tonal balance, and bass control. When used along with Blu-ray players a difference in picture quality can be detected, resulting in more natural color visibility and sharper contrast.
