  • "Speaker Bullets"?

    Found this ad on that auction site. Googled them and still don't get it (the price especially). Anyone?

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/Bybee-Techno...item1c43d1357a

    Here is the company site:

    The only thing to "get" is this is just another "snake oil" component intended to separate gullible people from their money and obviously you aren't one of them.

        And if you can't hear the difference they make, obviously your system or your ears just aren't good enough ;)

          I like their Particle Accelerator Hair Dryer -- I mean, Ion Gun.

          With "Grade AAA Tourmaline". For when Grade AA just won't do.

          Maybe I'll try out their Brilliant Pebbles.

            Brilliant Pebbles is a great name. The idea of selling a bag of rocks as an audio accessory to someone that is dumber than a bag of rocks..... it's brilliant! I think people that sell stuff like this are either con artist or mentally ill.

                Going to pick up a pair of these immediately and see if they improve the performance of my B652's.

                  I believe i can use them with a flux capacitor to make a superconducting speaker wire.

                    I'm looking right at them, and I don't understand what they are, or what they're supposed to do.
                    Isn't it about time we started answering rhetorical questions?

                      they are supposed to line the pockets of the snake oil salesmen who sell to people with more money than brains.

                        On the contrary, this is capitalism at work. The seller is simply an opportunist. If he had no market he wouldn't bother. It's the buyer that should concern you.

                          C'mon Paul, it happens on a quantum level. You can't expect to see or understand what it's doing. You just have to accept it. It's that simple.

                              So, we need to design a new product that reduces the effect of gravity on musical notes. a combination of voodoo, quantum mechanics and a reality distortion field. your notes can soar free from resistant. Bass notes will now flow free instead of being drawn to the center of the earth, mids and treble can reach orbit. all for the cheap price of $1000000
