not bad for a resistor, but I think its pretty crap for what is essentially an expensive soda-bulb with a less than totally effective regulator inside. there are a lot of magical mystery claims made about them in the advertising material, John has basically said it all, do you think its a good idea to put a cap multi inline in a speaker cable or power line without knowing the exact circuit? or in the case of speakers, at all?

are the higher current ones the same John?

Patents are public, do you have a link? Am genuinely interested to look at them.

Patents by definition are not classified, are made public. Read opening paragraph. Patent - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Smells like more BS to me.

The device will probably do the goods. The intent is to clean up the power rails, which I have found always delivers a subjectively superior sound ... there are any number of ways of doing it, I use a totally passive approach at the moment; no silly components, just working out what needs to be done to attenuate the rubbish passing through the parts of normal power supplies ...

There is a previous thread on these devices which from memory included a link to the patent.Whether or not the device includes anything novel sufficient to warrant a patent is one question, though the same thread does include posts verifying the devices work as advertised.

you mean they verify their room temp superconductor operation, or just attenuate noise as much as claimed? I have serious doubts about the former...

The long thread I saw seemed to suggest they didn't do anything more than a few dollars of electronics could do.

There appears to be some confusion here: there are 2 very separate devices from Bybee, working in completely different ways ...

Cripes! Excuse the exasperation.These are not the same as Bybee bullets or whatever they are called. Just like in the thread I mentioned people seem to assume they were. These are just an AC "noise stripper" comprising active components with a function if not technology akin to a Wenzel or maybe a JLH ripple eater. Where does any of their documentation claim that they are room temperature superconductors? DF 96 was a participant in that thread and ought to know better.
