Bybee Quantum Purifiers – Drastic Improvement For Car Audio in Areas of Lucidness And Naturalness

Thursday, November 11th, 2010

On and off, our regular customers/friends/visitors often ask us if there are any new toys or goodies that we would like to tell them about. Most of the time, there isn’t anything significant enough shout to them about and usually we will share our latest work on modifications and upgrades to already good products.

We spend a great deal of time applying high-end tweaks and R&D their effectiveness on car audio, but there are many overpriced products that improve only a part of the music and not the whole spectrum, whereas there are some that are seriously too minor ‘tweak’ to shout about, while others looks nicer and dearer that it actually contributes to the sound.

Bybee Quantum Purifiers was not only an interesting find but one that we safely try not label as a tweak. Every system needs them. Made by Bybee Technologies’s owner, physicist Jack Bybee with the aim to reproduce the purity of the music and this exactly what it does.

This is a breakthrough product that works extremely well with every audio system (both car and home) and brings drastic improvements in lucidity and naturalness. Systems applied with Bybee Quantum Purifiers have a stronger presence and yet less grainy and digitized. Amazing, one product that can do so much (usually some tweaks only help in better detail levels, or some with tighter bass, or midrange focus and so on). Your favorite hits and cds instantly have better musical pleasure. That is if you buy original and good recordings (a kind reminder!)

Honestly, the addition of the Quantum Purifier makes a more obvious improvement over our Mundorf capacitor power supply upgrades that our customers have been addicted to. The Mundorf serves as a foundation, so that every system is maximized and any additions to it (in this case, the Bybee Quantum Purifier) shines even further. Our Mundorf  power supply upgrades bring the system balance back to square one, sounding full, wholesome rather than thin and flat. The Bybee Quantum Purifier, purifies the signal and injects the life back to the music. It does not inject, highs, mids or lows in particular, but life - as in air and presence. Music without presence is usually termed dry and dull. If you want more out of your playback system, you need them.

If drastic is what you are missing for awhile now, you ought to ask us about the Bybee Quantum Purifier and the recommended locations for improving your system.

“reveal very small shadings & nuances in the music”

“wonderful improvement in lucidity and purity, and a drastic reduction in graininess”

“considerable difference: smoothing out my sometimes too-aggressive upper-end, further clarifying my mid-range, and extending the bass”

Taken from the Bybee website, here is an introduction of the product we have been shouting about:

BYBEE QUANTUM PURIFIERS

These unique devices are at the heart of every Bybee Slipstream and Golden Goddess plug-in “Instant Upgrade” product. Originally developed (and still used) for military applications, this quantum purification technology has proven that eliminating sub-audible noise—i.e., noise unmeasurable by typical test-bench instruments–at the quantum mechanical level produces previously unattainable resolution and beauty in home audio and video. For more than ten years select Original Equipment Manufacturers and elite custom upgrade specialists have used Bybee Quantum Purifiers to enhance the performance of hundreds of highly regarded electronic components and loudspeakers.

 Bybee Quantum Purifiers are cryogenically treated to enhance performance.

Scosche EFX and Stinger Products – High Quality Power Cables and Distribution Blocks

Wednesday, November 10th, 2010

Audio Creations uses Stinger and EFX power cables, available in 8 gauge, 4 gauge and 0 gauge. These cables are not CCA (copper clad aluminum) variants common in low-cost applications and sold widely.
FLUX power and speaker wire strictly follow the American Wire Gauge (AWG) standard ensuring that your amps and speakers are getting the power that they need to perform at their best. The ultra high strand count and frosted PVC jacket on the power wire increases the flexibility making for hassle free installations. Each individual strand of the Oxygen Free Copper wire is plated with a tin to prevent oxidation and provide unmatched reliability.

We use a high-quality non-fused distribution block for the best power transfer for our installs along with a front main fuse no further than a few inches from the battery. Along with the in-built fuse on the amplifier, this offers sufficient protection for your electronics.

Many competition world champions do not use fused distribution block for sound quality purposes and still complies with safety standards by the associations and competitions. We highly recommend using Cryogenic Fuses for improved/lower noise floor and sound quality. For amplifiers that require an external fuse, an EFX or Stinger fuse holder does an excellent job.

Stinger Shoc-Krome Distribution Block
High Conductivity Shoc-Krome Plating
Daisy Chainable Compact Design
Protective Cover Included
2 input – 1/0 awg
4 output – 4 awg
