Music servers are incredibly noisy inside. Its because of all the computer chips working at very high speed along with all the switching that goes on at a motherboard level. The best servers are always the quietest. Manufacturers go to great lengths to lower noise such as outboard power supplies, elaborate grounding/Isolation schemes, a bunch of little contraptions in line with the USB or CAT5. Well we went ahead and applied our knowledge of modification and radio frequency noise reduction along with Electromagnetic noise reduction to give you the simplest, easiest way to lower noise in your server, which will help your audio system image deep and wide with layers that were not there before. We spent 3 months developing this kit and are proud to offer it to the Audiogon community. Before you think about another server or DAC, give this a try.
The kit comes with 2 different noise absorption materials. This is different than shielding materials which simply reflect interference. These actually absorb the offending frequencies and convert them into heat.
The black foam is a wideband absorber which is good for inside lids or on any reflective surface. Its also great between audio cards and motherboard. The Gray sheeting is a highly permeable material which "sucks up" noise right from chips or hard drive, and even cables. Both are adhesive backed, so you simply cut to size, peel and stick. Main areas are RAM sticks, Hard Drives, DATA cables, then any of the chips you see on the motherboard. Keep in mind some of these need to release heat, so use the material sparingly and dont cover the whole chip surface. Also be careful not to have the material hanging over the chip and touching other things nearby. In other words be neat not sloppy.
The small kit includes 3 pcs 2" x 2" Verasorb wideband RF foam squares and 2 pcs 2" x 3" Verasorb High Frequency RF/EMI sheets.
The large kit is double. 6 pcs foam and 4 pcs sheets. You wont believe the difference this little tweak makes !
