Buyer's review :
-. "I use the MD-03 as a device for resonance control on top of my loudspeakers,
on top of a power filter and in the fuse box on top of the electric meter.
The sound is fuller, much more powerful and at the end more real. This are keepers. Thanks a lot..."
(2020.2.25. J.S. from Germany, bought with MD-03 & Reso-bell large.)
-. "Hi, First of all let me thank you for this wonderful product. After I had heard the sonic results
of just putting 2 disks on top of each of my loudspeakers it was very clear.
I simply had to order another set, just to play around with on my hifi-system.
And in case the additional 4 disks have a positive effect which is comparable to the 1st set.
I will certainly order another set."
"I have tested different materials on my hifi system, some with great effect.
As for wood I tested ebony among other sorts of wood.
But it never worked in the same wonderful way that mpingo wood does. Quite amazing.
Of course you can quote my comment if you want to.
I am already looking forward to the arrival of the next set of disks because I want to find out
if the positive effect will be augmented through a 2nd set. If so, I will certainly order another set.
Best regards G.E. , Germany. 2017.4.28."
(This buyer bought MD-01 first, and ordered MD-01, 02, Cable damper additionally.)
-. "I really like your product. It does what you say. It brings base definition and it improves the full range.
It moves the system to sound even more natural and pure. Thank you, RB. from USA. 2015.1.15"
(This buyer bought all MD-01, 02, 03 models.)
-. “ Mpingo make upgrade bass sound more dense certainly.
It means absolute strength of Mpingo which can be apply to most system.
This point is justly excellent than Ebony wood. This effect is almost exchange level
of equipment or higher, and greatest in case of speakers."
-. “I put MD up on each resonant point of equipment upper side listening with used stethoscope.
It can be realized that resonant sound decreased remarkably by checking MD & surrounding MD."
-. "Reverberation of bass tone become more natural and rich, and changed to the
sound more analog."
-. "Bass sound become more dense and rich. Hightone sound become refine its sharpness
maintaining clear and clean.
I satisfied with this effect and want to buy other clubWOOD's Mpingo accessories."
-. "I used MD as spike shoes and feel great effect. Sound become tender remarkably than put up
justly on black marble stone.
I had some difficulties as I could not make my preferable sound, but now no more difficulty
due to MD. Thanks."
-. "After using to feet base under Accuphase SACD player 77, the bass sound become solid and rich.
The high tone become more clear and smooth its sharpness than using other brand steel-made feet.
I want to use other accessories of clubWOOD's Mpingo items by the effect this Mpingo Disk."
-. (Below is very famous audiophile’s review listed on our homepage after using our Mpingo blocks.
He is managing audio community site as a side work, and is supported by so many audiophile members
in Korea. From his long experience, he developed many equipments and useful accessories.)
“I became assured ‘My sound’ at least with over twenty years audiophile careers,
and so I stopped to swap the equipments for a moment. But, I started newly just ‘accessory mischief’.
I have exprienced almost accessories selling in Korea.
Among them, I recommend to everybody below 3 items with assured higher effect.
-. BDR Cone
-. Van audio AVR
-. CD Shaver
Now I am seriously thinking about adding one more. It’s just ‘clubWOOD Mpingo items’.
When evaluate audio accessories, it is useless to express such as soundstage, transparency,
treble change etc. That’s why all accessories become different depending on the user's system.
But for me, I have the only one unchangeable sound change point, It’s just ‘bass density’.
If bass density become better, I believe that system should be upgrade one step without question.
The remaining elements are naturally come with.
Mpingo makes bass density upgrade one step definitely, and all while never to dry.
This means Mpingo has strong advantage not to care about any equipments.
This Mpingo is definitely superior than Ebony which was hot with joint production on many communities.
Obviously, this is as equipment-change level or more than that.
No, this is rather than a gain as there are no reason to fail when change equipment.
I got very amusing toy after a long time.
I will order more Mpingo items tomorrow and want to play with them."
-. "Dear K. S. Song
I would like to give a short feedback about my experience with your products.
I ordered a few weeks ago a record stabilizer large, disk block footers for under my loudspeakers,
a headshell damper and a set of cones.
When i received the Items, i was impressed, how beautiful they are made.
A shiny surface, and the items are all very beautiful crafted.
I did the implication in my Hifi-system one by one. I startet with the Disk Clamp.
It changed the sound of my turntable in a positive way.
I have a Nottingham Spacedeck with some improvements like graphite mat, carbone waffle base,
and a power supply.
The sound with the clamp improved clearly.
The base is a bit tighter and more organic and the whole presentation of the music is more natural.
The sound is also more focused. I had a certain fuzziness before which some would call airiness.
I like the more focused and centered sound, it feels more natural and live-like.
The musicians are standing now right in front of me. What a joy!
The footers under my loudspeakers weren't the same big improvement, because i had already wooden
footers instead of the standard metal footers, and my monitors, the wonderful Harbeth 30.1 are on stands
which will not give the same effect compared two floor standers.
But I had still a audible experience with it. The sound was more natural and organic than before.
I was impressed by the headshell damper.
I used the cartridge isolator from MusicMaker before, which i liked a lot. But your damper is better.
The transient speed is clearly better. It really improves the sound.
I have a darker background and a more natural feel to the music without any negative aspects.
I like all the tested products very much.
They are all integrated in my Hifi system since many weeks and they all will be staying there for sure.
Thanks for your good products. The music is now more authentic and joyful at my home.
I can highly recommend your products to everyone.
Sincerely, J.E.Z. from Switzerland, 2015.1.17."
(This buyer bought Mpingo LP stabilizer large, Headshell damper standard, Disk block MD-02(2sets,8ea)
-. " ~ I then purchased MD-02 discs and MC-03 cones from Clubwood.com.
I have had excellent results with their Mpingo wood products.
Inserting the MC-03 cones under the feet moved the sound very close to what I was searching for,
putting the MD-02 discs under the cones made a little more improvement.
I have now glued the cones to the bottom of the feet and am working on my Garrard 301.
In summary I have from bottom to top -- Stillpoints, 1.5" Boos cutting board, Clubwood MD-02 disc,
Clubwood MC-03 cone, slate foot."
(above photo from buyer, D.J. USA, quoted from lencoheaven forum)
-. "These mpingo discs has great success to eliminate the impossible tiny micro vibrations from components
in addition to the ones you can feel from your touch. The transformation is noticeable astounding.
These discs create a dead silent background free of any distraction in the music.
This exposes hidden musical notes to the music. Additional voices come into play more clearly.
The freedom of vibrations is able to provide component like turntable to clearly carry forth separation of voices
and instruments. You can actually see the singers as individual images on stage in full 3D.
The imaging has improved to a pinpoint degree of location.
The most impressive result is the ability for these mpingo discs to help individual equipment to sound without
any electronic thin brightness, glare or any haziness.
I am startle with the additional full sounding richness and natural musical warmth.
The music is of pure listening ease like in live music.
Its so involving that you have to drop any reading and just listen.
The high-end reference equipment will indeed sound even more "expensive”.
As the nature of the mpingo wood, it truly presented itself as a tree of music.
M. H. from California USA"
