Causes of Mechanical Vibrations (Distortions) for Audio and Video

Sources for causing mechanical vibrations for applications in audio and video are outlined in the following:

  • For audio, airborne vibrations generated by speakers in the room reach the equipment to invoke undesirable distortions in signal transmission.
  • On electronic circuit boards or/and electronic components for both audio and video applications, the motor-rule will create minute mechanical vibrations, as in - Current flows in a magnetic field generates mechanical force that result in movements.
  • For satellite application, wind or air currents will set up minute mechanical vibrations in the equipment, such as the satellite dish, LNB, mounting devices, and outside cabling.
  • Transformers for power supplies in any electronic or electrical systems, particularly in audio and video circuits, are inherently hum prone, which is created by point 2 above.
  • Motors for in-house heating or/and air-conditioning can cause mechanical vibrations. For the same reason, forced air through in-house piping often induces rattling vibrations.
  • Mechanical vibrations can be caused in any physical contacts with dissimilar materials, such as solder joints, wall electrical connections and connection plates, audio (interconnect/speaker/digital/power) and video (video/s-video/component/DVI/HDMI/RF/power) cable connectors, etc.

Recommended Procedure for Applying AVM

(Please use in good Ventilated area)
(Shake Well before Use)

  1. Tubes & Transistors, Preamps and Power Amps
    Coated a thin layer on the back of the circuit boards, soldering points, transformers, internal wires, capacitors, fuse.
  2. Speakers
    Coat a thin layer on the speaker driver brackets, crossovers, capacitors, resistors and internal wires, inside cabinet, soldering points, (Voice coil).
  3. CD Players
    Coat a thin layer on the back of the circuit boards, soldering points, transformers, internal wires, capacitors and fuse.
  4. DVD Players
    Coat a thin layer on the back of the circuit boards, soldering points, transformers, internal wires, capacitors and fuse.
  5. DA Converters
    Coat a thin layer on the back of the circuit boards, soldering points, transformers, internal wires, capacitors and fuse.
  6. Television/LCD/DLP/PLASMA/Front and rear Projection Video Systems
    Coat a thin layer on the back of the circuit boards, soldering points, transformers, internal wires, capacitors and fuse.
  7. Satellite Receivers
    Coat a thin layer on the back of the circuit boards, soldering points, transformers, internal wires, capacitors and fuse.
  8. Satellite Dishes
    Coat a thin layer on the back of the satellite dishes and the video cables.
  9. Tubes
    Coat a ring (with the width of approximately 10mm) at the top, middle and bottom of the signal tubes.
  10. Power Cables, Interconnects, Speaker Cables, Video Cables
    Coat a thin layer on the conductor and PVC jacket, and then cover with sleevings for better appearance.
  11. Transformers
    Coat a thin layer on the transformer and then apply shielding for better appearance.
  12. Capacitors
    Coat a thin layer on the capacitors and then apply shielding for better appearances.
  13. Fuses
    Coat a thin layer on the glass of the fuse.
  14. Resistors
    Coat a thin layer on the resistors.
  15. Equipment Chaises
    Coat a thin layer on the equipment Chaises.
  16. Motors
    Coat a thin layer on the internal wires and covers.
  17. CD & DVD Discs
    Coat a thin layer (with a width of approximately 10mm) on the covering of the CD or DVD discs. Position the coating on the first track and the last track of the disc.

Note: Do not dilute AVM with water or any solution. First de-power the electronic component, where applicable. In each of the above case, please allow time (half and hour or more) for the AVM to dry before reinstallation or operation.

Disclaimer: Users are responsible to decide if the application of AVM will void equipment warranty. Supplier is not responsible for any damages as a result of AVM application.

Sample pictures for application of the AVM

Note: These pictures are results of DIY. Manufacturers can spray the AVM on the equipments with better results or appearance.

  1. Tubes

    Note: AVM-2 is only suitable for the low temperature signal tubes.
    The high temperature version will be available soon.

  2. Fuses

    Before AVM Application After AVM Application


  3. Projectors



  4. Satellite Dishes



  5. Transformers

    After application, shielding can be applied for better appearance.



  6. Capacitors

    You can also apply AVM on the capacitors on your equipments. Left side shows AVM applied on only the top of the capacitors, but for better results, you can apply AVM on the whole capacitors (shown on the right).

    Note: Wait for the AVM to be fully dried before operating the equipment.
    For better appearance: Apply the shielding after applying the AVM.



  7. Interconnects

    First: Apply the AVM onto the interconnect.
    Then: After AVM is dried, wrap it around with jacket for better appearance.



  8. Power Cables

    Same as interconnect, apply a thin later onto the cord then wrap it with jacket for appearance.



  9. Turntables



  10. Speaker Cables

    Same as the above, apply a thin later onto the cord then wrap it with jacket for appearance.



  11. Compact Discs

    The pictures below show AVM is applied by commercial spray.

    Warning: Since AVM is in liquid state upon application, allow a short moment for AVM to dry according to the thickness; Suggestion for waiting time: If it is a thin layer ,then allow 30mins~45 mins to dry. But if it is a thicker application then allow 45 mins - 24 hours wait until AVM is fully dried.



  12. Ribbon Tweeter



  13. Drivers Frame



  14. Internal Wire, Crossover, Circuit Board, Etc

    For better appearance: Apply the sleevings and heat shrink after applying the AVM.
