A friend told me of this post and I felt compelled to set the record straight. I want to be perfectly clear because there is some misperception of material use on our audio installations.
WE NO LONGER USE STAINLESS STEEL SCREWS FOR AUDIO INSTALLATIONS OR FOR USE IN BOATS THAT WE SERVICE. SINCE WE HEARD ABOUT THE "UNABTAINIUM" THROUGH THE GRAPEVINE (we have our spies at Johnny's) WE HAVE NOT USED ANY OF THOSE UNRELIABLE, CRAPPY STAINLESS STEEL SCREWS!!! (Besides they have a tendency to corrode after 20 or 30 thousand years and then where would ya be!)
We had used SS since the late 60's and early 70's when we started installing 8 track units with Hi Fidelity. Eventually we moved on to new technology with the emergence of cassettes and ultimately CD's followed by digital music. However, we have recently come upon a new material for screws being used in all of our audio installs. We are ready to share the secret with the public (now that we have purchased the patent and secured all of the manufacturing rights).
It is called "Invisium". It is an alloy of Tantalum Pent-Oxide and Beryllium Tri-Nitrite (as well as a blend of a few "secret ingredients"). Only my self and the Keebler Elf himself know the formula. I can disclose however that we forge the new screw in our own foundry under our backyard volcano in Maui so it is "Proudly Made in America". I was also able to procure some cheap labor from some short fellas out of the far north who were out of work for the summer due to the economy and slow demand for Christmas products. Because of this we have been able to keep our labor cost low so we do not have to ship manufacturing to China like the SS screw boys do. Better yet, we pass the savings on to the consumer (our customers).
See photo's below and they will clearly demonstrate the integrity of our installs using Invisium screws instead of Stainless Steel.
PS: The screws may be difficult to see in the following pictures as they tend to be invisible during certain full moon hours and the autumnal equinox.
