After browsing various manufacturers of acoustic treatment products, ie: GIK, ASC Traps, etc... I came across a company based in the Netherlands called, Zilplex.
They use very small metal bowl-like structures attached to metal wire/studs. My first thought was, 'Are they serious!?' Maybe someone with more experience can help me
with explaining just a little bit about how these could possibly benefit a listening room.

Thanks! : D

The devices themselves are so small that I'm a little bit skeptical on their effectiveness. Perhaps they aren't setup the same way as conventional acoustic treatment? ie: not trying to correct room flaws but enhance the overall sound/acoustic space of any given room? I don't know if that makes sense the way I said it : P

More likely, they aren't conventional acoustic treatment. ie: not trying to correct room flaws but enhance the overall perception of a given buyer.:coocoo:

They release toxins into the air and mess with your mind... right after you take a hit off that doobie.
