Don't you know how easy it is to get positive reviews from audio magazines ?
Well, i suppose a serial resistance in the loudspeaker line change the damping factor of some amps, and some like-it ?
I'm more interested by your reports of digitally controlled resistances arrays.

You guys make me smile. Laughing would be too much. '-)
Kindhornman, I don't make Blowtorches anymore BECAUSE they are too hard and expensive to make properly, AND my business partner, the real father of the Blowtorch died about 7 years ago. No more Blowtorches, both from previous agreement and my business partner's unfortunate death. HE had the keys to making more, not me. I ONLY designed the electronics. You know the stuff on the circuit boards. He did everything else, had every machinist lined up, etc. Make sense now?

Nope. Somehow he got to Hawaii last i heard. Why or for what reason he went there, i dont know. What's he up to these days? Where is he living now? I hope he is in good health. -Richard

I have read some articles from the french CNRS about the supra conductivity (under certain conditions) of carbon nanotubes (graphene mono-foils).
For the moment, it is very experimental and at a microscopic level, if i had understood well.
Promising for future energy transport or temperature sensors as it is very sensible to temperature ?

If the Bybee has a skin of a material around the resistor that is nominally conductive, but which randomly changed conductivity, at the m.ohm level, in quantum steps then this starts to make sense. It effectively adds dither to the signal, a low level noise which will be pleasing to the ear - the water fountain in the city effect. Fine tuning of the construction would tweak the added noise spectrum for the most appealing sound.

Could you please explain the test conditions and equipment.
The note on the image states that IMD is 'gone'.
Measurement uncertainty, low resolution in fact, probably measurement error?
Interference affects measurement?

PMA, it looks like the air pressure in the left sinusoids are not sufficient.

Joke apart, it is easy to measure IM with and without this magic hyper subliminal device and publish the numbers.
Looking to the previous curves, the difference will be amazing!
I offer champagne to any people able to prove any difference.
I take no risk, thinking to a passive device able to discriminate IM without any effect on the response curve !!!!
A passive device able to "Add purity" to your system.
When it sounds like a fake, when it looks like a fake, when it smell like a fake, when it measure like a fake ?
...
It is a fake.
