could be a large IC chip, such as the many large digital chips found in DACs and digital transports). Gently swab the top surface of the IC chip (don't swab the metal pins on the sides). Under the bright lamp, you should see the top surface get just slightly shiny and wet looking (not sopping wet). Voila! You're done with this device! The wet, shiny look will soon disappear, as some of the fluid evaporates. There might be a slight oily look that lingers; that's OK. Don't touch devices after applying MusiCoat (that might remove it).
Now that you're confident, and see how easy it is to use MusiCoat, you can go to town swabbing all the other devices in your audio component. We suggest you start at one side of a PC board or chassis, and logically progress across the board or chassis, so you don't forget any devices. If you accidentally swab a device twice, don't worry.
If you know what different kinds of devices look like, you might want to coat all solid state active devices first (IC chips, transistors, FETs, diodes, regulators, all surfaces of small heat fins on active devices), then coat all resistors (both cylindrical and rectangular case), then coat all rectangular case and dipped case capacitors, and finally, with any remaining MusiCoat fluid, coat the inside surfaces of the chassis itself (including surfaces of large heat sinks and fins).
We find that MusiCoat does not have much effect on large cylindrical capacitors (film or electrolytic; they use softer dielectrics outside their conductors), so you can omit swabbing these. MusiCoat is designed for application to dielectrics surrounding conductors, and so it is too powerful to apply directly to bare conductors; thus we do not recommend applying it to most bare metal conductors that actively carry electricity: pins, wires, device leads, terminals, jacks, PC board traces, etc. But you should apply MusiCoat to all passive conductors (e.g. metal casings of all solid state devices, heat fins, metal chassis).
If you don't know what different kinds of devices look like, simply swab MusiCoat on the outer casings of every small and medium size part in your audio component (refer to diagram above). Don't bother swabbing large cylindrical objects (tubes or capacitors). With any remaining MusiCoat fluid, coat the inside surfaces of the chassis itself, including heat fins. Don't swab MusiCoat directly onto bare (shiny, unpainted) metal wires, pins, leads, terminals, PC board traces, etc. that actively carry electricity (but do coat metal cases of transistors, and the insides of the metal chassis). If you accidentally touch a bare metal conductor with the swab, don't worry; it's no big deal.
You should swab all sides of each device's outer casing that you can easily reach (the sides as well as the top, where appropriate). You won't be able to get to all sides of every device's casing (e.g. the bottom); that's OK.
As you use up the dampness in the swab, you should start pressing a little harder while swabbing devices, so that you start squeezing the remaining MusiCoat fluid out of the swab and onto each device. As you swab each device, look at its top surface at an angle, so the bright lamp reflecting off this surface verifies that your swabbing is getting the surface just slightly shiny and wet (not sopping wet). Then you can see when the swab is getting too dry to produce a slightly shiny surface. When this happens, make a note of which device you're at, and go back to the vial to re-dampen the swab (it's OK to carefully tilt vial as it gets low).
After swabbing many devices, the rayon swab may get ragged; change to a new swab. When you're finished swabbing, your component is all ready to play music -- real music. Enjoy!
MusiCoat is designed, formulated, and manufactured in the laboratories of TRT, Tomorrow's Research Today. The manufacturing process is very costly, laborious, and exacting, carried out by hand under laboratory pure and laboratory precise conditions. MusiCoat requires 10 manufacturing process steps, and each process step produces an average of just one tiny drop per minute. Thus, it takes about 10 hours in our laboratory to produce each vial of MusiCoat . You can appreciate why MusiCoat is so precious. Fortunately, MusiCoat is very powerful, and is designed to be used in a layer only a few molecules thick, so a little goes a very long way.
A vial of MusiCoat contains enough of the precious fluid to completely coat all devices in a typical audio component, with some left to coat the inside surfaces of the chassis itself. Remember, the thinner the coat you can apply, the better MusiCoat sounds. After you hear what a complete MusiCoat treatment does for the sound of one audio component in your system, you'll want to upgrade each and every audio component in your system with its own vial of MusiCoat.
Incidentally, the MusiCoat treatment is essentially permanent; a unit we treated over 6 years ago still retains the natural musical sound of MusiCoat. If you ever wish to undo the sonic benefits of MusiCoat, you can wipe it off with a clean swab or tissue soaked in pure isopropyl alcohol.
