I'll be happy to do that. If the results show no effects on signals and circuits, and no-one is able to demonstrate audibility, are you willing to do the same?

Why are we referring to him as Sy? His initials are S.Y.

Well Exeric, I think he has been on the planet long enough to smell a rat. There's a few in this field. Let's call them psuedowhatevers.

If you think that his instincts and training are a failing then perhaps it time to reconsider who is blind.

Personally, I am not expecting much so if I hear any difference, I'm libel to be ecstatic and throw a party.

Sure, as long as it is a neutral person conducting the tests. Do you want to have negative results questioned by me and others because the impartiality of the tests were questioned. If you are so sure that the tests can be done in an impartial way then why not let someone else do the testing? Then if it turns out in favor or you and against me all the better for you. I and others will not be able to complain. And I assure you I would in the first situation and I wouldn't in the second. That's a promise.

My recollection is that he has (rightly so) been very critical of the claims of "near-superconductivity", and the ability of any material to selectively remove "bad electrons" from the stream, to wit..even the existence of bad electrons.

Are you saying that your use of such devices renders you an expert in near-superconductivity?

Cheers, John

Cal, I can't see any periods on his moniker. I think this may require I purchase a much bigger monitor..yah, that's it...I'm missing out on all the details...

Sheesh..

Cheers, John

Oh, almost forgot...

What about a ground loop coupling/susceptibility test? Inclusion of a lumped element anything into the haversine stream will alter the loop currents.

I assume the end use system design will be code compliant and single ended drives..

I'd recommend running a swept sine 1 ampere current out to 50 Khz through the line cord, terminated at short at the male, and monitoring of the loop currents on an external ground loop using either a hall transducer, or a Danfysik Ultrastab DCCT.

Cheers, John

ps..personal??? You want personal??? OK... (old guy)

Give me some suggestions on how you'd do that, John, and I'll be happy to give it a fling.

Exeric, you have found the reality of the situation. I have known SY for many years, he, in person, is a great guy. But, when it comes to Bybee, he had plenty of input potential from me, including real devices. No sale. That is OK, until he turns on Bybee, without even testing the devices, especially listening through them.
