Fostac MAXiiMUS mains and electro smog harmoniser



Fostac MAXiiMUS mains and electro smog harmoniser is an interesting device, that can saves up to 30% of energy and clears the electro smog:

The Fostac-Maximus’ interior consists of copper-cores, which are wrapped with silicon-dioxide fibre glass tissue and additionally enclosed in a bromine alloyed glass casing. This system is meant to work like an antenna, which feeds the gained electrons into the joined circuit and thus, saves on electricity from the grid. The device produces alternative energy on the highest level, drawing on the constant flow of electrons within nature, which results from the natural tension between ionosphere and the earth. It reduces the use of energy, increases the energy yield (...), harmonises electric smog and heightens the quality of life.

Solid wood speaker from Davorin Žnuderl


Acoustic Preference's Davorin Žnuderl prototype drawings of the modern take on high efficient speakers with the vintage drivers:

Designing and manufacturing something rather different from my usual stuff, mostly for fun of it. Main part, 40cm wide, 140 degrees wooden midrange horn. Made from solid walnut. Tricky even to engineer and much more tricky to made. Simulations shows it should have almost perfect frequency response down to very low region, will see. Should be match for very high efficiency Vintage woofers I have and want to use, for some low wattage gear and tube amps. Will get some super tweeter on top, also.
