“THE UltraBit Platinum-Plus RECORD TREATMENT WAS LIKE BUYING A NEW HIGH END MOVING COIL CARTRIDGE. THIS WAS A HUGE IMPROVMENT IN AN ALREADY HIGH END SYSTEM.  I RECOMMEND THIS FOR ANY VINYL USER.  JOHN WOLFF, CLASSIC AUDIO LOUDSPEAKERS”
ClassicAudioLoudSpeakers.com

“UBP-P the latest version of UBP is a basic CD/SACD improvement tool for me.  I find the “Plus” goes on quite easily, is rapid to apply, and is no fuss no muss to buff with the included microfiber cloth.  I am always looking to get closer to the live performance with my playback system and find UBP-P will always help me in getting there.  And most important to me is that UBP-P doesn't get in the way of the music.  It can provide more air and nuance and soundstage presence in a manner that is correct where the performance is opened up and emotion is more effectively communicated.”
Chris Vogel,  XLinkAudio.com

“Now to the UltraBit Platinum-Plus…I listened before and after applying the formula. Low and behold, there was detail, depth, and clarity afterwards.”

New High-End Audio Paradigm

UltraBit Platinum-P (UBD-P) stands in stark contrast to the usual “rule of ear” of high-end audio: “diminishing returns per dollar invested.” The 2-ounces of UBD-P is sufficient to treat at least 500 discs and will last 48 to 60 plus months with only an occasional rebuffing and without any additional application of UBD-P, which works out to only 13 cents per disc and now with the new UltraBit Diamond-Plus™ (UBD-P) as low as 6.5 cents per disc!  And if that isn’t increasing returns per dollar invested, then what is…?

Get Music in Better to Get Better Music Out and Rehear What’s Possible™!

Which systems will UltraBit Platinum-Plus™ and now the new improved UltraBit Diamond-Plus™ benefit?

If you have big dollars or time invested in your high-end audio or video system, we don’t think you’d want to miss hearing or seeing your system’s true potential because the full quality of the source material wasn’t recovered. UltraBit Platinum-Plus™ (UBP) and now the new improved UltraBit Diamond-Plus™ (UBP-P) even more so, helps your system reproduce the digital information of all your laser-read media including Blu-ray video and audio with higher fidelity and now for vinyl records as well.  And now the new UBP-P also increases the playback fidelity of the analog information on vinyl records.

Likewise, if you have a relatively small or modest investment of money or time in your system, but want to optimize its performance, UBP-P or UBD-P may enhance its quality such that it exceeds the fidelity of much costlier systems that don’t enjoy the benefits of UBP-P or UBD-P. And as every music-loving audiophile knows the paradigm of “diminishing returns” rules the world of high-end audio whereas UBP-P and now either UBD-P are probably both one of the most cost effective upgrades you can buy. Thus, we answer the question: Every serious music-loving audio and videophile should use either UBP-P or even better UBD-P to maximize the fidelity of their audio, video, and analog systems.

Easy 100% Free Upgrade to the Sound and Musicality of Audio and Video Systems

When playing any digital media such as compact discs, DVDs, digital downloads,etc., the fidelity and musicality of the sound from the speakers of most audio and video systems (approximately 92% of the time) can be improved by swapping the way all the system’s speaker wires are connected to the speakers/receiver/amplifier.  Be sure that the system is turned off, or better yet just to be extra careful, unplugged from its power source before disconnecting the speaker wires.  Remove the wires that are connecting to each of the system's speaker’s red (or positive +) and black (negative -) marked input terminals and reconnect them to the opposite terminals of each speaker, i.e. the speaker’s wire that was previously connected to the speaker’s red terminal will now be connected to the speaker’s black terminal and the speaker’s wire that was previously connected to the speaker’s black terminal will now be connected to the speaker’s red terminal.  If it would be easier to swap the speaker wire connections at the output connectors of the amplifier/receiver instead of at any of the speakers, that also yields essentially the same improvements, but be sure to make the swap only at one end of each pair of speaker wires, because if both ends are swapped that cancels the change.  

How to know when and if to swap your speaker wire connections: 

To find out if your system’s sound can benefit from the change (because on most systems, approximately 8% of digital recordings will sound better when the speaker wires aren't swapped), read the information at http://ThePolarityList.com, where there's an alphabetized list of which compact discs sound better when the speaker wires are swapped and how to tell if your system is one of the approximately 92% systems that would benefit from swapping the connections of its speaker wires If your system has a polarity switch, then you can use it instead of swapping speaker wires, because changing the mode of the switch has the same affect. For an in depth explanation of why and how that improves sound and musicality you may read the information at http://www.AbsolutePolarity.com and http://www.PolarityGeorge.com  .  

The foregoing upgrade only applies to digital media, because most analog records and tape recordings would sound worse if the speaker wires were reversed, so if you play both analog and digital media, having what's known as a polarity switch and even better a remote controlled polarity switch is ideal because it's instantaneous, can be heard and evaluated from the listening position, and doesn't require turning off or unplugging your system.  A polarity switch can do the equivalent of swapping the speaker wire connections by reversing the direction that speakers move in response to electrical signals, i.e., when the individual speakers that were previously moving toward you have their connections swapped, they will then be moving away from you and visa versa, i.e., if they were previously moving away from you, they will now be moving toward you.  Because our ear-brain hearing mechanism doesn't respond the same way to sound pressures as it does to sound rarefactions (reduced sound pressures) we hear a difference in how music sounds when its polarity is recorded reversed relative to the polarity of its live sound.

Happy listening,

More than just an upgradeUltraBit Diamond-Plus™ Is a CD's Best Friend!

The results of the most current beta tests as of July 9, 2014 are below:

I've copied and pasted below two "word of ear" emails that I received from Jennifer Crock of Jena Labs and one from Andy Claps in the hope that they just might peak your interest in receiving a free kit of my latest concoction for treating all laser-read media, UltraBit Diamond-Plus™ and CleanDisc-Plus™.  And as usual there's no obligation to do anything with it but I'd sure like to read/hear your "let the bits fall where they may critique."  As usual when it's not sent as a free sample as it would be to you but sold at its full MSRP its guarantee is 100% satisfaction with a full refund of its purchase price, shipping both ways, plus an extra $10 simply for trying it because we put our money where your ears are because we believe that the evaluation of an audio system is the ear of the beholder!  UltraBit Diamond-Plus is a CD's best friend.

Dear George,

Holy Bananas Batman!

We are all speechless...ruined my evening plans because I had to start taking out CD and SACDs ...to hear them like never before!!!!!!!!!

Stunning...amazing....BRILLIANT....

My helper Bob BEGS me to order him a kit... My husband was blown over...he says he can REALLY get behind it!

George, This is the best product you have ever done!!

Dynamics…soundstage, inner detail, reduction of fatigue edginess, retention of speed, ..stressless speed!  Deep enveloping bass and luxuriant midrange....  Bob says it was like going from a first generation CD in a player of the day almost 30 years ago to the best of SACD or DSD in the players of today... Yes, this is nothing short of amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Can't say about curing ...will check treated discs tomorrow... Just been pulling old favorites, one after an another...some that were great music but so-so acoustics, and reveling at the sound and emotion.

THIS IS THE KIND OF IMPROVEMENT ANOTHER PERSON CAN HEAR FROM ANOTHER ROOM!  No, this ain't the precious tiny little thing that only the golden ears can tell the difference, this is MAGNIFICENT,  AND HUGE!

Tomorrow,,,,will re-listen to some of tonights treatments for curing benefit, and will try on DVD and BluRay too... I have an meeting after dinner till about 9:30, then will be home to do part 2...

It IS a winner George.  How much wholesale for a kit for my assistant Bob?

I have not told Andy about my findings...but I did tell him that we we would be testing the new stuff....he asked me to ask you if there is a trade in potential for the 2 bottles he bought during the winter and has to use...still working down the older bottle, which is now just about empty...   I need to promote this stuff!!!!!!!  I LOVE IT....it is essential!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Cheers

George, this stuff IS revolutionary....I am still shocked and amazed at the beauty and emotion that is coming off even known crappy sounding recordings....Simply amazing.,  I have a Frank Sinatra compilation made from 1960s and 1970s recordings...It sounds OK, You can tell its Frank singing...Treated it brings him to LIFE and INTO THE ROOM!  Laurie Anderson...lots of textures and sounds from all over the soundstage...fun stuff, but treated it becomes fully wrap-around immersive and with such a combination of speed and smoothness, it is simply jaw dropping. KD Lange, Ingenue CD...Track 4, has lots of fine details that appear deep in the soundstage...Her voice become liquid and present with you...the background sounds clear and far away, but SO clear they are like magic, not the details you can barely hear and struggle to define, but clear and present and deep and far and such a beautiful accent to the front sounds... Pink Floyd..OH MY GOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  It is better than my German Quad LP of Dark Side of the moon, the previous standard by which all others were pale in comparison... Chamber music and violins....IN THE ROOM, not simply easily recognizable, but WITH YOU, revealing all the resonance of the gut strings and wood vibrations....WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have to get back to work...

Cheers

Jennifer.

Hey, Jen:

I can't sleep, so I tried to put together some thoughts about the Diamond. They aren't very good--not like in the old days. Other audiophiles will doubtless articulate things far better than I can now, but maybe it's something to get the ball rolling. It follows here:

If people listen with open ears, they will be blown into next month by Ultrabit Diamond Plus. This stuff is, by no small measure, the best optical-disc treatment I’ve ever, EVER tried. The way it uncovers layers and layers of long-buried information, but with zero highlighting, really needs to be experienced "first-ear. The written word can only do so much. There are certainly CD treatments that do this or that very well, but precious few in my experience yield across-the-board improvements. The only one I can think of, prior to the Diamond, was George Louis’s own Ultrabit Platinum Plus, which has reigned supreme in my listening room for years.

But time marches on, and George’s mind has obviously not laid still. The Diamond sees the UBP-P and raises it several notches. It excavates much more musical information and untangles complex productions and arrangements in a way that even the UDP-P simply can’t. It also improves 3-CD recovery so dramatically that, in a darkened room, it can scare you if conditions are right (or even if they aren’t, for that matter).

It’s truly a mind-altering experience to hear recordings you’ve heard a thousand times revealed in such startlingly new ways. Yes, that’s a hopelessly worn cliché, but I believe that there’s a little truth in every cliché, and the Diamond is that truth in this particular one. In the sports world, the best athletes often say that, for them, the game slows down to a much greater degree than it does for other players. And, seemingly, so it is with the Diamond. Musical lines are laid clear with exacting precision, and it’s almost like listening to CDs in slow-motion (in the best sense of that phrase).  Everything is so remarkably clear, so precise, so open and untangled and intelligible, but sans ANY edge or accentuation whatsoever. It’s easily the most “even”-sounding optical treatment I’ve ever experienced.

High-end audio is rife with hyperbole and puffery, but Ultrabit Diamond Plus is one of the few audio-related anythings I’ve owned or heard that absolutely defies the hype. It deserves every single plaudit that comes it way. To listen to a CD or SACD without it is like experiencing music in blurry, divided fractions rather than as a whole, clear, breathing entity. It’s simply the best of the best, in my opinion.  In my experience, SHMs can benefit just as much as non-SHMs. Despite the seemingly advanced coating, they are clearly not optically perfect, as evidenced by UBD-P's effectiveness--at least in my case.

Andy (Andrew) Claps

Here's a heads up with some information about UltraBit Diamond-Plus™ and ripping a CD that's been treated with it to a computer hard drive:  David Drake ripped a Telarc CD that's in polarity to his HP laptop's hard drive using Exact Audio Copy.  He ripped it both before and after treating it with UBD-P.  Both of the ripped files had the same checksum but according to David Drake the sonic and musical results of treating the CD prior to ripping were quite dramatically in favor of the ripped UBD-P treated CD.  I'll be emailing you more details of David's test protocol later.  I'd predicted his results because it agrees with the opinions of my customers who complained that after treating their CDs with UltraBit Platinum-Plus™ (my previous top of the line optical impedance matching CD treatment) they felt obliged to re-rip all of their CDs to their server because their fidelity and musicality were so much better.

July 1, 2014, George, here's some of my latest observations:

My speakers are 9.5 Feet apart, and 15 inches from the carpet, putting the High frequency drivers at ear level. Normally on many pristine CD discs, this would give strident run together highs, especially with massed violins, limited depth, and unstable imaging, even in correct absolute polarity, but to a lesser amount.

July 1, 2014, George, here's some of my latest observations:

My speakers are 9.5 Feet apart, and 15 inches from the carpet, putting the High frequency drivers at ear level. Normally on many pristine CD discs, this would give strident run together highs, especially with massed violins, limited depth, and unstable imaging, even in correct absolute polarity, but to a lesser amount.

I experimented with spraying UBD-Plus onto a corner of a Micro-Fibre cloth, and first applied it to the Capacitor from the midrange driver to the Linaeum tweeter.  I moved the wet corner of the M-F cloth around the body of the capacitor, and buffed it.  What a difference!!  A tremendous increase in high frequency extension. lost almost all the string stridency, the violins became more coherent, had body, and sometimes with good discs they were individual in the sound field.  The back ambience was brought out with percussion instruments in the rear of the orchestra. Triangles, drum snares, cymbals became more distinct.  Instruments in the Mid-range and even upper overtones of bass instruments became much more prominent and real.  I arbitrarily gave this improvement about 40% on pristine disc s, and 15% improvement on single application UBD-Plus discs.

Then repeated the application to another corner of the M-F cloth and the ends of the above mentioned tweeter capacitors. Some improvement in small details and overall coherence, it seemed to me that there was about another 2% improvement in overall sound and musicality.

Next I treated ONLY the front base of the Linaeum tweeters, and WOW WOW WOW! (if someone whom had not heard any of this above, listened to a pristine disc, and then listened to a UPD-Plus treated disc, He would have needed  "audio pampers" if not a defibrillator.)

I still don't know what percentage improvement to award this-it is so striking  to hear what CDs have hidden within those "bits".  Sound was Tony the tiger Grrrrrrrreat on either side of the "sweet spot" but when you hit that spot Lordy Lordy you lock in to the original recording venue in spades! What a tweeter this is! ALL instruments in all frequency bands are SO real I said Holy Meard!  I played track after track, repeated tracks and repeated parts of tracks in order to hear all that I had missed before.  In one instance, I could hear the string basses in the orchestra take up a single plucked note (three basses) continued on to that single bowed note moved across to the cellos for the same bowed note, and over to the violins on the left to make a sound mosaic of just that one bowed note which continued and was always prominent, even when there were strong french horns in counterpoint to upper strings and muted trumpet fan fares!!!  Another piece in the same medley had a Latin rhythm with maracas in the back (about 20 feet into the wall!), and I could hear the maracas going back in forth in the space of the maracas player, just as if I was present at the live performance.  Now I have been playing disc after disc to hear what I have been missing all these months and for some discs years, and it's a whole lot more than I ever could have imagined!

I'll keep you abreast of my further findings.      

David     

If my beta tester, David Drake's, ripping a CD to a computer hard drive results hold up i.e., can be replicated, then apparently not all bits are created equal, because some bits are more equal/better than others…so "bits are bits" NOT!  And for those who won't believe their lying ears I say In the Land of the Deaf the one eared man or woman is king of Queen and None so Deaf as those who will not hear.  So don't  cut your ears off lest you spite the music!

July 2, 2014

[I'm] Just verifying that I applied Diamond to component parts, and to exterior of finished products, and also to exposed portions of opening tray for optical media, and also heard incremental improvements with each experimental application.   Neat stuff!!!!!!!!!!  You can repeat or not as you wish...I just reporting that my findings are similar to the other persons.

Cheers

Jennifer

July 5, 2014  Another beta tester (for the time being name withheld upon request) had trouble ripping a Reference Recordings CD using Exact Audio Copy to his computer that he uses as a music server.  He said that the disc appeared to be clean yet when he first ripped it he could only get the first three tracks to rip without errors.  So he re-ripped the CD, speculating that perhaps it simply hadn't loaded properly, and the second time it only ripped the first four tracks correctly.  The he applied UltraBit Diamond-Plus™ (UBD-P) and re-ripped the CD and that time it ripped the 1st seven tracks correctly, so he applied UBD-P and then the CD ripped perfectly as verified by the cyclic redundancy check code (CRC)  that matched 27 others Exact Audio Copy's users bit for bit (which in and of itself is a bit redundant). 

He's going to do double-blind listening tests on the first three tracks that ripped perfectly (CRC verified) to find out if he can statistically prove whether he can hear a difference between the CD's tracks ripped prior to treating with UBD-P and after treatment with UBD-P.  I'll report his findings either way.  But perhaps this will add some fodder to the "bits are bits" debate.
