Hi SY,
Getting counterfeit devices would be a serious setback. Can someone contact the supplier (Cal or yourself) to see what they say about this? Then I guess it would be up to John to confirm they are the real deal next time he bumps into Mr. Bybee.

Getting John or Jack to confirm these are in fact the real devices might be a critical step now.

"Getting counterfeit devices would be a serious setback."

Indeed, but how would anyone know?

It doesn't any measurable specifications apart from the bleeding obvious.

Hi cliffforrest,

By checking the dimensions and magnetic characteristics of the devices that SY has in his possession right now. Because he noted that ...
Quote:
The dimensions are different than spec (9/16" as opposed to 1"), and the leads are neither copper nor silver (they are highly magnetic).
I understand his question. A magnetic lead would seem to be in direct opposition to the current acceptable component lead material. I'd be suspicious too!

Hey Cal!

Can you tell us where you purchased them?

Hi Cal,
I wasn't challenging anything. I was responding to SY's description of the leads, which seems wrong for a component like that.

Maybe the device works by inserting that steel sound!

Anyway, all I suggested was that the question be put to the vendor since it is commonly known that he audio press has declared magnetic material in component leads unfit for audio duty.

From the Bybee website:

In 2003 there were breakthrough developments concerning the theoretically ideal materials and physical form needed to optimize noise reduction and electron flow through the signal path. Advances in materials science and fabrication technology have resulted in a unique new carbon fiber-based Quantum Purifier with electron noise reduction and electron Slipstream transmission properties that are distinctly audible and visible, and superior to Jack Bybee’s earlier developments. The Bybee Slipstream Quantum Purifier represents the Quantum Purifier concept taken to the limit. Slipstream Quantum Purifiers are now available in three versions—with copper, silver or gold leads—for optimal performance in different components and applications.

Of course copper, silver and gold may just be platings over a steel core lead.

There is a resistor inside that is attached to the leads sticking out. The leads are mil spec something, as just pure copper is rarely used for many military applications due to its ease of breakage with high vibration. I asked Jack about this years ago, he said that it still works 'OK' but remember these are the cheap parts, the more expensive versions would have silver or gold leads. You get what you pay for. Also, take care if you take one apart, the resistor is potentially hazardous to your health, if you grind on it or something similar. Serious warning.
I have 4 identical devices in my inventory that look the same. They should be the same, if they came from a Bybee distributor.
