Shun Mook Signal Tube Resonators Set of 4
Shun Mook Signal Tubes Resonators (Mini Valve Resonators)
The Shun Mook Mini Valve Resonators (VR) are designed to enhance the performance of miniature electron tubes. The main function are:
- Reduces total harmonic distortion
- Damping of tube glass resonance and ringing
- Filters electromechanically vibrations
- Adds rich musical harmonics to its output signal
The Shun Mook VRs are made from African Mpingo Ebony treated with a proprietary process that allows for maximum resonance of its musical energy spectrum.
Application is simply by placement of a VR on top a signal tube of a pre-amp, power-amp, or DAC UNITS. The improvement is immediate with a cleanup of the sound field, sharpening of the imaging and increased dynamic transient energy. The sound stage will become wide and deep with better separation of the musical components plus a pronounced increase in inner details.
The result is like turning your ordinary brand signal tubes to a high-grade low noise name brand tube with increase warmth and sweetness to your music.
For the last years Shun Mook Acoustics Inc. has introduced a new concept and a new approach to usage of material in the control of acoustic resonance in High Fidelity. There is no real magic about Shun Mook's products. They are all based on simple high school physics - "Sympathetic Resonance". As all elements in this universe will resonate when like pattern energy is generated from another material. Just as in a physics experiment when you excite a metal tuning fork of say the "A" frequency and hold it close to another static "A" tuning fork. The result is that the second tuning fork will also get excited because same frequency energy is transferred through the air to cause the vibration. Thus when the musical energy produced by any Hi Fi system will excite to different degree of all materials within the space covered by the acoustic spectrum. Different materials will have a positive or negative effect on each other influencing the final music re-production. The secret is to control and tame such resonance to the advantage of the system.
It is commonly known that many musical instruments use Mpingo and other ebony wood to create the most natural musical tones and harmonics. Just like the clarinet, the violin and other wind and string instruments uses the ebony as the essential component to generate the sound. With many years of research and development Shun Mook has designed and brought forth several revolutionary devices in the technique of electronic audio enhancement.
