Synergistic Research’s XOT Carbon
The XOT Carbon is the latest, improved version of the well-loved original Crossover Transducers XOTs. The conductors are made from Graphene which obviously is a big improvement and the housing is made from carbon.
The XOT Carbon are parallel filters for speaker crossovers that terminate directly to the leads of your speakers. XOTs deliver a significant increase in resolution accompanied by a lowering of your systems noise floor for more holographic sound. Terminated in either spade or banana connections, XOTs are sold with a no-risk 60-days money back guarantee.
As a business we have to collect 8% TAX from buyers in California.
"...I must admit that after being in the high end for almost 30 years I thought I had pretty much heard or experienced it all. Not so with the Synergistic Research XOT Carbons. Nothing really prepared for the delightful surprises these small devices deliver. And those surprises are not subtle either. When I install a pair on my DALI Epicon 2 speakers it was like going from the Epicon 2 to a Epicon 6! I got so much more from my speakers dynamically and things just seemed to have cleared up more than before. I never thought my DALIs were bad and they are not, but what I tell people is that the Carbons are like taking your gorgeous car after having had it washed to a detailer and then seeing just how much better it really is. The Synergistic Research Carbons are the detailers and you owe it to yourself to give them a listen. I would be willing to bet that once they are heard, they will not be going back..."
"...now 5 days on burn in, the XOT are remarkable, everything has improved akin to a pre and power upgrade, more of everything, very addictive, the level of emotion is very high, the detail the air, the timing is so natural. Simply put a few layers of hidden detail uncovered..."
"...recently I had the chance to test a Stein Music device similar to the Synergistic Research XOTs - at least they are installed in the same way - however, they cost about three times as much. They created some more or less positive effect but not in a way that would have made me want to have them in my system permanently. - OK I thought, there’s no need to be too angry. After all, I hadn’t burnt my money. When I came across Alfred’s online shop and read the positive comments on this product (especially David’s who enjoys the same speakers as I do) plus the 60day “money - back - guarantee“ I became curious again and decided to give the XOTs a try. The guys at SR obviously know that they don’t take a risk when making this offer!!! I can’t imagine that anybody who installs the XOTs in his system will ever be able to listen to music without them! A friend who knows the sound of my system nearly as good as I came for a listening session without knowing about the XOTs. After some time he asked me what I had done to my system since he visited me last time because in his opinion the sound had improved significantly. 'There’s so much more of everything", he said and added after a while that anyone who didn’t hear this massive positive change should look for a different hobby!?"
"...I bought the new monitor audio Studio speakers that have loads of detail. I thought no way these carbons Xover enhancers would work. I was wrong, that not only lowered the noise floor lower lever detail, but also added image depth and soundstage dimension, a steal for money spent. They do take roughly 80 hours to start opening up and a full 200 hours for full refinement. Highly recommended!!"
"...these devices really add delicacy, air, instrument separation and realism to my speakers. I have multiple systems so I keep ordering..."
"...I've used various incarnations of this type of device in the past (Walker HLD's) and have mostly been a bit underwhelmed at the results for what I paid... NOT this time....
These really do clean up the signal to the extent you'll hear far more into your music than if you didn't have them. Coherency ,transparency and overall musicality all improved because the noise transmitted to your speakers is effectively reduced. Even with my Sonus Faber Stradivari, (which are already excellent ) I hear REAL improvements which makes for a more enjoyable and stress free listening experience. I highly recommend the XOT Carbon..another "hit"..IMO"
"OMG…JUST INSTALLED CROSSOVER, THEY’RE AMAZING!"
"...the stereo sounds MUCH better. There is a sweetness that makes me smile, and a good recording is almost holographic! The silence between tracks is so complete, it sounds like everything has been shut off. So, I am delighted and so is my wife..."
"...I like what the XOT’s are doing. Biggest thing I’ve noticed is separation of instruments and more roundness and presence..."
"Wow...the difference these XOT’s make is amazing, it is honestly like I changed my speakers, no matter what I play it just sounds better, this upgrade is probably one of the most effective I’ve tried..."
Steven Plaskin, Audiostream, March 2014:
"...I then replaced 2 sets of Walker High Definition Reference Plus Links ($725.00/pair) on the back of each upper module of my Sasha speakers with 2 sets of XOT Crossover Transducers. 1 set is attached to the midrange terminals and 1 set to the tweeter terminals. I immediately noticed an additional improvement in clarity, definition, and overall bloom with the Synergistic XOT Crossover Transducers compared to what I was hearing with the Walker HDLs. ..."
