Remember the Furutech DeMag demagnitizer for your CDs and DVDs? It claimed to get rid of "resolution-sapping magnetic interference" from your optical discs, which we called total bullshit to back in November. Well, somehow they're in the news again.


Still giving no explanation to how this thing works, Furutech now offers a price on this DeMag. $2900. So here's our challenge, Furutech. Send us one to test (you have our emails on the left column) and we'll decide once and for all whether your thing isn't just a lousy $2900 CD/DVD holder.
