A very interesting book, I got it as a birthday present, I am yet to sit down and implement some of the free recommendations, sometime next week, I shall give feedback on their effectiveness.

Has anyone ever implemented the recommendations on the book?

If so, which ones would you consider to make the most audible difference can in your setup, i'll also add  to the list once I've set up mine accordingly.

Not directly, but apparently the father of electrostatic placement is our very own fiddlestix, aka fdlsys.

I know this is an old post but does anyone have a book they have finished with, that I can buy or lend?
