Default Quantum Purifiers -

Thermal noise in electronic equipment is typically created by the
excitation of phonons, which are resonances in conductors caused by
the movement of electrons through the quantum well. Phonons are a type
of noise in themselves; they are caused by a certain class of
electrons colliding with the crystal lattice of conductors (silver,
copper, etc.) through which they are being transmitted. Such phonons
travel, not at the speed of light, but of sound, and therefore are
instantly out of phase with the signal. Shot noise, which is generated
by the operation of transistors, is similar in nature to thermal or
white noise. Low-frequency (1/f) noise is always present, and
increases as an inverse power of the frequency.

The Bybee solution is based on principles derived from quantum
mechanics, the study of how electrons behave at the subatomic level.

We can totally eliminate all this noise if we simply operate our
equipment at -273 C.

So that's what they are, two leaded absolute-zero ice cubes.

Richard, they could be mono-reproducers. This was introduced in the 70's as a
device that could faithfully take an input signal and reproduce the signal at
the output with no distortion, phase shift, and a gain very nearly one. Also,
there was no loss up into the MHZ region. You could take two of these
remarkable devices and have a Stereo-reproducer.
If you cooled a 1" piece of #12 copper to absolute-zero, you might improve on
the mono-reproducer.

How does the "Josephson(sp) junction" fit into this.
And wasn't it classified Top Secret back in the 50's?

Just curious

I stand corrected! A little bit of web research shows that this would be
a venture capitalist's dream. I have to continually remind myself not to
overestimate the golden-ear crowd -- after all, the gold-plated 8 ohm
characteristic impedance speaker cables sold (and I assume still sell)
like hot cakes. The placebo effect is certainly powerful, but it's
possible that the "quantum purifiers" might actually do something.
Rather than believe that the purveyor is actually selling components
whose composition is "classified by the U.S. military", I'd be willing
to bet they're some sort of more-or-less off the shelf varistor. That
would flavor the music a bit, and anyone who'd just dropped 600 bucks
for a pair of them would no doubt find the flavoring to be marvelous. A
few minutes with a curve tracer and some web specifications should pin
the source down pretty quickly. But I'm not quite 600 bucks curious. . .

Oh, I'm not correcting that statement -- except that it looks like a
whole lot more than one are being born every minute now.

Here are some of the claims:

"Bybee Technologies claims that the quantum filtering provided also
speeds up electrons by as much as 50% and in the process selectively
removes undesirable ones, thus purifying the remaining signal."

The review this was taken from (SoundStage!) then goes on to tout the
"damping characteristics" of the wooden box the device is housed in.
I'm curious about whether the reviewer might also happen to write for
the Weekly World News.

Reminds me of the blind man selling pencils on the street corner for
$10,000 apiece. He claimed he only needed to sell one.
