Schuko/Euro Version of the High Fidelity Cables MC-0.5
Good news for our international customers: High Fidelity Cables is now producing a European version of their extremely popular MC-0.5 AC conditioning module ($299) with a Schuko/Euro connector. The device itself is indifferent to voltage, but it is nice to have the Schuko option, available in the drop down menu on the right side of our MC-0.5 product page in the green box.

New in the Library: MrSpeakers Ether Flow and Ether C Flow Headphones
While MrSpeakers started out modifying Fostex orthodynamic headphones, they have since moved into the big leagues, designing and manufacturing from scratch several reference level orthodynamic headphones. We are pleased to announce that we have added the open and closed-back versions of MrSpeakers Ether Flow ($1799.99) headphones to our Headphone Lending Library.

The MrSpeakers "Flow" models are designed to minimize turbulence, and judging by the coherence and purity of their sound I would call these designs unqualified successes! They offer exceptional transparency and dynamic expression yielding exceptional musicality.

Orthodynamic headphones frequently sound excellent, however many competing models are at best ergonomically challenged: they are heavy and difficult to wear for extended periods. The MrSpeakers Ether Flow (open) and Ether C Flow (closed back) are significantly lighter and more comfortable than the majority of their competition.

The "Ether C Flow" is a reference level CLOSED headphone that has proven that Closed Cans are not always the poor cousins of their open-backed brethren. Finally a Closed Can that has no need to apologize for its performance! The "Ether Flow" is an Open Back Headphone with a tad better transparency, but both versions offer exceptional sound quality and exceptional comfort.

MrSpeakers still makes the original NON-Flow version of the Ether headphones ($1499), however based upon the modest price difference between the Ether and the Ether Flow headphones, we are focussing on the significantly improved open and closed back Flow versions in our Headphone Lending Library.

For more information and listening notes, we recommend Jude Mansilla's Headfi review.

New Bybee Active Room Neutralizers and Quantum Signal Enhancers
We have always held that room acoustics (along with speaker placement) has an enormous impact on the overall sound that any audio system can produce, or more accurately RE-produce. Unlike headphone systems (we have a lot of headphones!) in which the acoustic space is defined and consistent, a home stereo plays in a uniquely dimensioned room/space with all sorts of reflective and absorptive surfaces that interact with the sound from the speakers.

To that end we have recommended various effective room acoustic products like Synergistic Research's HFT's ($299/5 pack), FEQ ($995), Atmosphere Series ($1495-$3495), and ART system ($3515), as well as the Stein Music Harmonizers (from $2395) and the various products from Room Tunes ($40-$600), and the Shakti Hallographs ($1695/pr).

There are many ways to affect the acoustics in a listening room from absorption products like ASC Tube Traps (starting at $380) to digitalized room correction systems like the DSPeaker Systems Anti-Mode Dual Core ($999 on special). No one single product or treatment can be the perfect solution for every system, and many times using combinations of products can yield the best results of all. But sometimes room/acoustic products don’t play well together, which is why we try as many combinations as possible.

We introduced the unique Bybee approach with their original Room Neutralizers ($2000/set of 8) in our September 2015 newsletter. Bybee has now enhanced and simplified this very effective product with their new Active Room Neutralizers ($1300/set of 2). We tried these in our listening room(s) and were very impressed with the results. The Active Room Neutralizers are designed to be placed about 4 feet up from the floor in the center of the wall behind the speaker and the center of the wall behind the listener. They simply plug into any available AC outles and do not need conditioned power.

How do they work?
According to the manufacturer, "the technology is designed to resonate at the same frequency as the Carbon 13 atom, which is less than 2% of all atoms. This action creates a "magnetic moment" which in turn effects all surrounding atoms making them aligned. The result is more efficient electrons. C13 atoms are present in the the air, and when the surrounding atoms are aligned, the air molecules are less attenuated, allowing sound to travel in the air space at greater efficiency."

OK - that is over our CableCo heads, but what we CAN tell you is that they do in fact work, and work very well.

We are not the only ones that think so - check out the review of the Active Room Neutralizers in the Stereo Times article for additional insights and comments.

Available in our Cable Library for home audition/evaluation. We have a lot of experience in room acoustics solutions, so give us a call and we can get you started in the right direction. Remember - improved room acoustics ALWAYS translates into better sound.

Bybee's NEW Quantum Signal Enhancers
The same science is used in the design of the Bybee Quantum Signal Enhancers ($120). These are powered by an internal battery with a 10 year life, rather than needing to be plugged into an AC circuit. They are designed to go either over or under components and/or cables and do significantly affect soundstaging, dynamics and resolution. The also remove a layer of smudge/grunge that most of us are not even aware exists until it is gone.

This new battery-powered version of the "QSE" is a revision of the successful passive version which has been available for a couple of years, but the battery enhances the effectiveness. And when the battery wears out in 10 years? You still are left with the same very good passive version as previously, just without the battery boost.

We have both of these new Bybee products in our Cable Library for home audition/evaluation.
