QSEs And IQSEs
Next I install iQSE inside my Moon Supernove CD Player with very good results. I also try QSE under my Monster HTS 5100 for my TV room with great improvement on sound and image. The only advice is that you try one at the time depending on your systeme topology.
It is not so expensive for the benefit of music and picture.
that my CD Transport, DAC, and amp are plugged into (preamp is an autoformer passive). I am hearing substantial improvements very similar to those described in the positive feedback review.
I have two more arriving today, that I am going to experiment with placing on/in my transport and DAC. tommylion, 07-21-2017 - Audiogon
and the effect allowed better stereo image, and the revealing of other accompain instruments, not heard before.
your explanation: "The reasoning is the connection keeps the two speaker parts in synch. rather than allowing the crossover parts to skew to timing.The neg strap brings them together.That is the reasoning i read on this tweak." 05-29-2018 Elisabeth - Audiogon
I use a PC desk top for my audio and asus stx sound card I go out coax to a wyred 4sound remedy then to W4S SE DAC balanced out to a line transformer the to a musical fidelity valve satge X10D and finally to a Lavardin IS ref amp I then go to double Lowther in Hedlund horns. The whole system due to the lowthers and horns is very senistive indeed and I have long suspected that my PC which I use for movies and internet duties is a mess of electrical hash. But as I've built I've got to a sound that is very rewarding and much improved at the top end where digital can sound very harsh and hashy , especially on classical and high compression recordings . I also run my Linn into the asus sound card as I like the Asus basic equaliser which for my ears sounds much better than the Foobar equaliser. Anyhow it been sounding great recently and I have my eye once the reviews are out on the new Lavardin x series or if not a transformer passive preamp. So all is good. But something has nagged me for years about electrical hash and veiling mush on the signal especially where the PC was concerned and I have long thought that there was more to audio replay than sharper, louder. And so on.
As I said I received your ISEQ about three hours ago here in the UK and placed it on the Asus sound card, and as I've in between varnishing a floor I've only had a chance to listen to Dean Martin, Handel, Madonna , Ray Charles, Gerry and the Pace Makers and Billie HolidayWell all I can say is 'Bloody Hell' .it's fantastic so much mush has simply vanished. All the things you want in audio have been enhanced. Violin strings rasp. the synths on Madonna's 'Holiday' are s rich and clean . Yes that's it normally clean is associated with a dryness, a sterile feel but this is clean but everything harmoniously richer with fine detail.I look forward the next few days to playing music and watching some hi def material. I sometimes find I can go cold on what I perceived as an improvement after several days but I'm convinced that's not the case here. If after extensive listening I remain impressed I'll be buying another
Better definition of instruments and the space around them. Enhanced location cues, expanding apparent listening space, added depth behind the speakers and sonic images extending laterally beside the speakers. I perceive the music floating more independently of the speakers, yet at the same time better grounded. Acceleration of bass attack is noticeable enough to change the pacing, in my system. My David Berning OTL tube amplifiers and preamp, which have proven remarkably resistant to most tweaks, responded positively. Tacking one on the back of each speaker at the terminal panel (presumably near the crossover) was effective in enhancing dynamic range, smoothness and bass harmonics. Placement on top of the speaker at front edge had a beneficial effect of clarifying midrange and encouraging a shimmering, appealing top end.
Remarkably, one of the most dramatic effects of the iQSE I experienced was completely unexpected. Among Jack’s beta adopters one reported success placing them at the inputs and outputs of a house electrical utility meter. The mildly magnetic gizmos are easy to place in a home fuse box. I experimented with 2, 3 or 4 stuck onto the face of the breaker switch panel. Wow, the effect was quite rich dramatically infusing the qualities mentioned above. Keep in mind this is a recently remodeled home electrical system. My gear is treated with top-notch power conditioning. Household circuit quieting products from Acoustic Revive, High Fidelity and Akiko have been deployed. Surprisingly images on TV from cable box and DVD player, excluded from my AC power conditioner, benefited greatly though I seldom note or greatly value those kinds of improvements. Color saturation increased dramatically and the details of cosmetics on brightly lit TV faces. As I suggest it’s a very dramatic and quite welcome enhancement to a household electrical system. I achieved best results deploying eight iQSE samples (and I bought them all): 2 at the fuse panel, 1 DAC, 1 preamp, 1 each for the monoblock amps and loudspeaker terminal panels. Dave Radlauer
I was somewhat surprised by the amount of improvement but am very happy with the result! Thanks. Brian email
>Installed one device in my tube preamplifier and one device tube DAC at 6:45pm on Wednesday. After a few hours I started to hear some subtle improvements. I then added one device on top of my Mac Mini which serves as my computer music server. It is exactly one day later, 6:45pm on Thursday, and am now sending you this e-mail. Enjoying the music as I I am very satisfied with the improvements that the iQSE devices have made on my two channel system! Low level detail has improved as well as the timbre/tone/texture of the music. Absolutely no negatives. Steven - email response
received it today, Wednesday in Nova Scotia from Ontario. What is it? Well it is said to be a Internal quantum Signal enhancer, Whatever does it perform? I'll leave that to the experts. I placed mine on top of the oppo 105 figuring if its any good it will work here too. I first played the first cut of Madeline Peyroux, "Secular Hymns". What? You don't have it? Shame on you.:) It's recorded in a Norman cathedral in England. Well this little device brought out more of her vocals and the feel of the atmosphere of the recording. I hate that when I can't explain why. It just did. Every song and everything seemed to fill up in the space better. Go figure. I'm not saying you need to try this. To each his own. But something good is really happening here. In my system. YMMV! The same is happening to Feist's "The Reminder" I'm wondering if there is a collective effect with my Blue Circle devices and the IQSE. Now remember I'm only saying what I heard in my system. That is all I heard. It isn't going back. Stupid good and I can't explain to you why something like this works. I'm truly humbled. This is only my observation. I'm sure others will dump on it. That's fine. 😆 cheers, Lloyd – Canuck Audio forum
Quantum Purifiers and Purifier Products
and just love them! Since I am using my speakers in bi-wired mode, I bought 2 pairs per speaker. Better resolution on low-level details, increased transparency and lower noise level. I have installed Bybee purifiers on the AC input line of my Benchmark DAC and Krell Monoblocks with same results.
The Bybee will not color the sound of your equipment, they just give you access to information that seemed to be veiled prior to the installation of these devices. Very similar effect as upgrading from a mid-level interconnect to a reference-grade interconnect from same cable manufacturer or inserting a top-of-line power conditionner in your system. Just everything gets better. 07-10-2014 dasign - Audiogon
I have used his power cords, early models of his speaker bullets, purifiers soldered directly in line with the drivers of my speakers themselves and purifiers that go between preamp out ICs and the amp inputs and the result is always the same...increased transparency, purity and intelligibility. None of my stuff is the newest latest greatest BTW. A few months ago I decided to run a little experiment and started pulling out Bybees just to see if I was fooling myself. It took 30 seconds of listening to realize what a mistake that was. - acresverde 07-09-2014 Audiogon
supplied kindly by you to my pre-amp and they are great. Still burning in but initial results are great. Separately I have installed small copper QP’s to a client’s filament power (B+ and B-) with great results too. Paul - email response 1/22/19
Active Room Neutralizers and Passive Room Neutralizers
the Bybee Active room neutralizer. I had a nightmare listening room, a relatively small perfect 15' cube, and the Bybee has transformed the listening, JUST like the reviewers say. My prior 'go to' acceessories were the Lessloss cables, which I still love, but I may have to change my username to Bybeelover! I have zero affiliation or agenda, and am trying to stay on topic as the original post raved about a company's product that over time has been soured for a lot of people.
I have some appreciation of the physics of Bybee products - or at least that there IS physics at work, but boy for me the change has been amazing. The room has literally alost vanished! Many threads of course devoted to his products but for this listener Bybee effects trump CPT any day. 2-24-2018 lesslosslover - Audiogon
I have a high resolution set, nothing to improve upon it anymore. But a great pain was always the acoustics of my living room. Not possible to change my major living space for the music. Many room treatment items are also not fitting well with the art on the walls and the furniture. But finally - after many years - I decided to try a few things nevertheless. This accidentally happened to be a few months after the Bybee active room neutralisers were available, which I did not know. My dealer The Cable Company advised me to try a few alternatives, like the passive and active Bybees and the Synergystic Research products. After a lot of hearing, placing the products on many different places, removing them and reinstalling them, the miracle happened. I only hear the loudspeakers and no distortion anymore from reflection of walls, furniture, floor etc. Just the sound from the loudspeakers. Amazing.
I have tried to understand what takes place, read and reread the information from the manufacturer, a few reviews, but I do not understand it. I can understand that the spin of the molecules and atoms that make up the air in my room is changed. But I cannot understand how this prevents reflections of the sound. Maybe someone finally can explain, but that is just for my curiosity, because what is most important: it works wonderfully.
The sound is not changed in any way. It sounds as if I listen close to the loudspeakers. But further off there always was distortion through reflection and now it is gone. And that was what I wanted.

one week ago and so happy with sound enhancements I bought two more. Received them this day. Not installed yet. 2-23-18 - barbapapa - Audiogon
