"Compared to the 100 year old knob and tube wiring of my previous home, the sound in the new room is smooth as a summer lake in the gloaming. Frankly, I expected the impact of either Stealth Purifier to be negligible, at best.
Turns out, I was way wrong. After playing the Gold Note IS-1000 connected straight into the socket for a month or so, I unplugged it, plugged in the original Stealth Purifier, and then plugged the IS-1000 into that. All of sudden, I immediately thought of Dave's review. I could say it differently, but probably not any more accurately:
"Not sure what to say… don't really want to put any one off or offend anyone, but phucking shit… you got to be kidding me?! What the hell just happened? This unit is so far down the road in going deeper into the music with more color, life, energy, presence, separation, imaging, resolution, air, light, slam, dynamics, ambiance, extension, palpability, naturalness, involvement, neutrality… gee anything else left to add… I mean really, what the hell?"
Even using gear in a room that I've only listened to for a few months, the improvement made to the sound quality was immediately obvious. Changed? Transformed? I have no problem using either of those terms to describe the qualitative upgrade in sound made by adding the original Stealth Purifier to the system. "
"...Regardless of how exactly Bybee Purifiers really work, their effect proved unlike any other power-line product I have tried. Yes, they do appear to reduce some of that same fine layer of low-level haze which I think most audiophiles are familiar with but where these little buggers really impressed was the way dynamics especially of the micro variety come across so freely. The leading edges of notes and musical nuances are far better realized. Music flows more naturally and shows greater vibrancy. Dynamics open up but without upsetting tonal balance or highlighting other musical or sonic aspects." - Paul Candy, Sixmoons

35 Years of Bybee Technology
The Bybee Power Purifier Stealth has been at the forefront of AC power conditioning & audio noise reduction for the last 35 years. It cleans AC power like no other product on the market, and the results are clearly audible. We challenge you to find better AC conditioning at this price. We make good on our challenge by offering in-home auditions of the STEALTH, and of course our 30 Day Money Back Guarantee.
The Heart of the STEALTH
The Bybee Power Purifier STEALTH uses Jack Bybee's proprietary and ultra high grade 2018 SE Crystal Quantum Purifiers inside, in addition to Bybee purification to achieve this end. No other manufacturer comes close to this technology, and effective noise reduction without using heavy (and current limiting) chokes and transformers.
All of this would mean nothing of course if the noise reduction also robbed the music of it's soul. This is the area where the Bybee Power Purifier STEALTH excels. To be able to lower the noise floor so much, and preserve the layering, ambience, dynamics and flow of the music is what makes the STEALTH power conditioner so unique. For the first time, your audio system will be able to perform to its full potential with the clean, and unrestricted power flowing to the individual components from the Bybee Power Purifier STEALTH.
- Nonmagnetic Aluminum Chassis - No off the shelf stamped steel chassis here. The chassis of the Stealth is costom made of of thick, nonmagnetic aluminum with and even thicker faceplate.
- Surge Protection - First, a high quality circuit breaker with a rocker style switch. Second, a John Curl designed surge protection circuit that does not wear out, degrade sound quality, and resets itself after tripping.
- Dual Ground Filtration - Along with a Bybee Purifier on the ground leg of the AC, we have incorporated an additional low resistance filter on the ground. This noticeably lowers the noise floor. The ground filter is standard on every new stealth sold.
- Bybee SE AC Slipstreams - We now incorporate at no extra charge Bybee Slipstreams into the AC receptacle filter network. The net benefit is an even more organic presentation with slightly more body and a very nicely extended high frequency. These should not make as much difference as they do, but they do...
- High Fidelity Wave Stabilizers
- Bybee V2
- Dark Matter Technologies Qubes
- Furutech GTX- D NCF AC Receptacles - The New Furutech NCF AC receptacles feature copper contacts, a new and very powerful clamping mechanism that can hold any power cord, and an exceptional sonic performance.
- Grounding post - We incorporate a grounding post on the back of the unit to make connecting of an Entreq grounding box easy.
High Fidelity Wave Stabilizers
Rick Schultz's Magnetic Conduction Technology has been one of the most significant improvements to audio cable design in 50 years. His line of audio cables offer unprecedented performance for those who want the absolute best regardless of expense. For manufacturers, he makes his AC Wave Stabilizers available for use in power conditioning products. We incorporate these phenomenal devices on the hot, neutral and ground legs feeding all receptacles. When AC is run through the Wave Stabilizers as part of the Stealth power conditioning system you get the best of extreme low level resolution paired with the best in organic richness and musicality. Your audio components are able to reveal much more low level information than with the Bybee Crystal AC Purifiers alone. Your system attains a spooky sort of realism with tonal shading, dynamics, texture, and emotion. The Wave Stabilizers are instrumental in attaining this level of detail, while Bybee Crystal AC Purifiers in turn help to preserve the soul, the musicality that pours out of your audio system. It's an amazing, synergistic combination that we highly recommend.
3 High Fidelity Wave Stabilizers are inside the Dark Matter Stealth
The Bybee V2 is placed strategically inside the Stealth, after all other line conditioning to ensure maximum impact on the Hot, Neutral and Ground legs. Then 7 DMT Qubes are placed inside the Stealth. One on each AC receptacle, one on the AC inlet and two over the main filter box. This in combination with the V2 takes the performance to a whole new level, well beyond the $995 price tag. Image density, low level resolution and soundstage envelopment (beyond width, depth and height) is jaw dropping.
The Bybee V2. Ugly, but oh so powerful.
