Contact Enhancer Q45T

Hello to my all Q45T’s lovers and fans.

John from Cables Company has just confirmed that the new batch of Q45T has just arrived this morning Friday 4/15 and they are ready taking in orders and ship. Unfortunately, back orders and the waiting line for this addictive "Love Portion No.9" is long so, according to John, there is only 1 of 10ml and 3 of 5ml left until next batch coming in again.

DISCLAIMER: PS-1260 and Q45T were invented, designed and to be licensed by the man himself, RICK SCHULTZ.

Now, below is my Q45T’s experience which was shared on Pete’s NPS-1260 thread a few months back:

. 1260 is revealing and transparent with a decent of musicality. It’s a jaw dropping experience.

. Q45T makes music more beautiful . It gives me goosebumps with satisfactions

First music notes with Q45T on, I was floored. Very organic and beautiful with lots of LAYERS and RESOLUTIONS.... so accurate and realistic Bass is so tuneful and excite. High is sweet, silky and nicely extend. So much more engaging and musical. PRAT is smooth and effortless..

Q45T helps so much focussing on sound-staging and imaging. For the first time in 15,18 years, I stop listening to my gear but just music.

So, is Q45T better than NPS-1260?

YES YES and YES for me it is.

I strongly recommend Q45T for all gears... entry level or super high end.

I was told that, on their last batch, The Cable Company sold all their Q45T bottles on their first day, so get yours ASAP

Thanks for posting - while I see it on cable company, doesn’t seem to be a functional site at all.

I do like the description of their power conditioner for $80,000.

Maybe I’ll get one for each monoblock, just for symmetry’s sake.

John  {Nasaman} right now Highfidelity is really not in good place. Trust is no longer there, we discuss this before thru email .Its hard to build but easy to destroy.iam sorry I feel this way.

John if the merchandise doesn’t reach your door, no matter how good is the product, with thousands of dollars involved?Thats not good.Trust won’t be there.

+10,000 @nasaman 


Received mine two days ago Thursday. It was ordered mid February.

Just applied it to all connections except AC. Rick did tell me that it took 40-60 to really take effect. But WOW! I always discounted the background orchestra in a Pop singer’s LP. If the voice sounded good I was happy. Now the instruments are as important and great as is the singer. My 1st record before and after is Art Garfunkel “Breakaway”. The sound is enveloping. I can echo all what @nasaman 

has said. When my wife came into the room she immediately said “I can hear it sounds very good”. High praise indeed.
As far as availability, Rick has licensed NPS Q45T and said that he will no longer sell it. He told me that the Cable Company will have it and ContactEnhancer dot com. It should take some time but well worth the wait! WOW!

I have been using "contact enhancers" for twenty years now, all available commercially. First apply something like Brasso, wipe off, then some DeoxIT. Nobody objected to those. Now there are all these "contact enhancers" for audio, at much higher prices, doing the same thing (and probably more), and all of a sudden, all the usual protestors protest. Snake oil and such. Go figure

Now on for 24 hours, I am even more stunned. In a nutshell, it makes music more beautiful. Have yet to do any AC cords. Only all other contacts-ICs and speaker.

$345 is more like $34,500 in improvements.

I will be receiving my 2nd bottle of Q45 this week-just order the other day from the Cable Co. Thank you Ethan

I was worried and so close to upgrade my integrated amp from Jeff Rowland Continuum S2 ($10k) to Jeff’s latest Daemon ($45k) because I thought my Continuum S2 was under powered and was NOT a mate in Heaven with my speakers.?

Well, believe me not, the 1260 saved me and then the Q45T’s arrival really a life saver because $45k is ALOT of money for me. Now, I’m so satisfying and not a second thinking about the upgrade. 

It seems to defy any seasoned experience for a contact enhancer to make you hear the angels sing like no other without even an attempt at substantiation for the claim. I for one would appreciate if, instead of constant shilling the manufacturer would offer a scientific comparison to Mad Scientist, Deoxit, Acoustic revive et al.



And just could be done? One would need to shut off the system, strip each treatment off, apply the new, listen for a few days, then repeat. I seriously doubt one could quantify whatever differences that exist

For starters one could try to measure resistance and impedance of an electrical connection before and after applying the contact enhancer….that is assuming that any scientific effort went into the product development…

I don’t know the science behind any of the enhancers, I use Furutech Nano and to my ears it provides some positive impact to the SQ. What I think hurts the acceptance of these type products is the hyperbole assigned , for instance and not picking on anyone , but $345 more like $34,500 in improvement; and the $10K to $45K extension. I have no doubt that positive impacts were heard , but the hyperbole helps the case of those that cry snake oil..

@facten ,


thank you for your comment: I am using the other three products I mentioned myself and simply take issue with the exaggerated claims being made on the new product.

Contact enhancers work, they do however not turn a pig into a golden stallion

When I say $345 is more like $34,500 it surely is a reflection of my satisfaction.

And a direct reference to actual money spent in my $135,000 system.

Can an actual amount be quantified.? Not really. Is it a highly subjective, emotional comment? Obviously.

The truth is that NPS Q45T has significantly improved my listening experience.

So much so, that I now look forward, excitedly to every LP. This was not my experience before the Q45T. The sound grabs me and my emotions like never before. Can you put a price on something that is priceless? 

~ 10 days ago, I applied my sample, which I received way back in 2021 (long story why the delay), to just the coax cable between transport and dac, and the XLR I/Os from pre to amp. While there was an immediate jaw drop, it has improved quite a bit since then (even more organic, warmer/richer, more 3D). Can’t wait to get a bottle to treat the rest of my system + TV rig


When my wife came into the room she immediately said “I can hear it sounds very good”. 

Very good.  What did wife think of the $135,000 system before the application of Q45T?

Audiogon threads…..the happening place for enhancing your contacts…..

One wonders whether drinking the stuff might be beneficial to one’ brain’s connectivity…

I'll soon be merchandising these to protect from any physical damage to oneself while auditioning contact enhancers.

My wife previously thought my system was great but clearly said that the improvement with NPS Q45T took the SQ to a new level.

IME, I always feel that the SQ could not possibly get better… until it does.

If describing the effect of Q45T in one word it would be articulation. 
Instruments and voices are at a new level. In your face in a good (great) way.


I am itching to try this stuff. On my cables, on my component fuses, on my E30 BMW...

I bought what appears to the identical product from Mad Scientist (US dist) 100ml for $75. I have treated all my connections to great benefit


Many people seem to be under the false impression that the primary active ingredient in Q45T is graphene, presumably because it's black. That's not correct. 

I think it's important for people to know you can't get Q45T-level sound quality from (admittedly much cheaper and still quite effective) graphene products. 

Ok I applied q45 on the original pc of My KLH model 9 Speakers it works, it’s more sweeter and smoother, music is more flesh out.

@agisthos there is a few that have. I believe if you use the search feature they will populate. @ozzy I think had good results and some have had good results with the Mad Scientists juice.

Good luck. 

I believe the contact enhancer product sold by Mad Scientist Audio is identical to the sample I had from RS.  It made huge improvements in my system. AND, it's much cheaper.

my oh my: a lot of shilling going on on this thread. I have used Mad scientist, Acoustic Revive and a few others. Mad Scientist was the most effective



If you ever applied either you would know that once applied and properly embedded that it would be EXTREMELY difficult, if not impossible, to remove 100% to then make a valid judgement

I just got back from Anybody who believes this BS needs to take a basic electricity course. This is just using ones own poor understanding of psychoacoustics to make money. It is just as bad as the trash the pharmaceutical industry advertises on TV, Relief Factor my backside. Whatever happened to that Jellyfish stuff?

This stuff is a total and complete waste of money. It does absolutely nothing to the sound quality of any system. If it did it would be 4 times as expensive and every audiophile on the planet would know about it. The marketing is insulting to any educated person's intelligence. 

my oh my: a lot of shilling going on on this thread. I have used Mad scientist, Acoustic Revive and a few others. Mad Scientist was the most effective

Shilling is where a dealer, vested interest or the manufacturer itself come in and pretends they are just retail end users. What evidence do you see of that here? Do not throw such accusations about.

@mijostyn You have 6500 posts but pretend to act like you are a newbie who just stumbled upon an audiophile engineering debate. You have the experience to know the misc-audio sub forum has threads for thousands of these subjective products and tweaks like contact enhancers. So act with some common forum etiquette and go rant about DBT tests and psychoacoustics somewhere else.
