Bybee GOLD Crystal Slipstream RCA Adapter
This adapter from Bybee Technologies incorporates a GOLD Bybee Slipstream Purifier in conjunction with Bybee's new Crystal Technology. It's all housed in a sturdy locking RCA adapter. To us, it is the best of both worlds. You get the powerful noise reduction technology of the Bybee Slipstream Purifier with the addition of the signal flow enhancing properties of Bybee's crystal technology.
"a sick level of detail without turning into a musical scalpel. Glorious resolution, creating a wrap-around soundstage with layers, textures and flow that had me glued to my seat."
The sound? A lower noise floor and better musical flow. Music is airier, the soundstage is wider, deeper, more dimensional and the music just flows effortlessly. Compared to the Crystal Slipstream adapter there is a refinement and smoothness to the music that is even more organic and natural in its flow.
There is definitely a large reduction in digital harshness. With the Bybee RCA adapters in place, those digital recordings that you love the music, but hate the sound suddenly become MUCH more listenable, downright enjoyable.
"So what is it you ask? Well, this is not the simplest set of differences to explain but if words like ‘ease’ and ‘natural’ speak to the sort of sound quality you want in your rig, then the Bybees seem to provide it." - HiFiZine
On the turntable to Phono preamp connection there is increased harmonic resolution, and again more air, space and flow.

Bybee products make more of difference than almost any other thing you can add to your system.
I had read a bunch of good reviews about the Bybee products, so I thought I would try the RCAs. After about 200 hours of burn-in, I installed them on my turntable interconnects. Wow...not a subtle change. The soundstage width was easily 10 to 20% wider. I heard new detail on reference material I have been listening to for thirty years. Also, instrument placement was much more precise and well defined. Soundstage placement can be tough...lots of systems that have very accurate soundstage placement do so at the cost of shrinking their size. Likewise, some systems present a false “halo” around each instrument. The Bybees increased precision, while leaving a natural sounding size. I will be checking out the rest of his stuff. System: VPI TNT / Benz LP -> Devialet 200 -> Rockport Atria.
I'm using this on the interconnect between my DAC and my integrated amp. Given that this is a premium cable (Audience Au 24 SE), the effect/improvement was more than I expected. More detail, punchier bass, better musical flow. I'm very happy with the gold RCA adapter!
I used one pair of gold bullets on my phono and am shocked by the improvement. New modern recording sound much more pleasant and acceptable. Sound just opens up with a deeper and wider stage and i am hearing details previously hidden. Considering the price, this is really value for money upgrade for me compared to changing cables or equipment
