I wish I could find a link to a story in the WashPost that ran years ago. They interviewed one of these audio wackos who has spend half a million for his two channel audio system. Every kind of ridiculous tweak imaginable, but what stood out is that he would place a bowl of milk next to his turntable because it helped "to improving dampening."

Really.

Yup, years ago I intermittently ran my JVC G10 projector off a nasty-looking square-wave from a (iirc) Tripp-lite UPS and the (initially) surprising viewing result was no HD picture degradation whatsoever.

Actually that would be a long painful and extended trip form what I have read!
