In the search for better audio I have come across many ideas and suggestions that will apparently move you one step closer to audio nirvana. Some of these seem plausible, some seem downright  ridiculous but the person trully believes it. So what are some of the weird things youve been advised or read that will somehow make your music sound better. 

As an example : make sure you have the felt mat on  your LP 12 the right way around otherwise it will effect  the sound quality......I almost burst into hysterics!!!

Beauty is in the eye (or ear) of the beholder.  This forum is full of examples of things like you mention here.  I think the best thing to do is just let it be and leave those people to their beliefs.

some one told me that the sound became a little hazy, so negated the improvement

This thread would be a good example, but I could usually find something similar full of 'belief' ie snake oil most days.

This is so true. Audiophilia is akin to religion.  If people beleive, then they beleive. You're wasting precious time and effort to convince people otherwise (and who really cares anyway).

No different I suppose to 'leaving those people to their beliefs' when they think immunisation causes autism.

LOL quite a bit different. If somebody wants to spend $100k on interconnects, it doesn't affect me. More power to them if it makes them happy.
