They seem to be impossible to find these days. I've had a running search on eBay for years for anything from Quantum Products, and never had any results. I can only conclude that very few of these things were ever made. As even with Springlife Polarizers, you see these come up in estate sales (people may not want to sell them, but eventually they do die).
Also, over the years, the Quantum Pro changed in strength, so the newer ones are like 4 times stronger than the older ones.
I believe the closest thing to these on the market today are the Symphony by ADD-Powr.
I suppose you could try to contact the company that made the Quantum Pro to see if they have any residual unsold stock. As they still have a website, just nothing advertised for sale.
I have sent ADD-PWR a question re Symphony and awaiting.
I emailed Margi and she has a new device the only one they now carry, called the Comfort Clock which is very similar to the Home and the Pro units but the Comfort Clock has no adjustability.
I don't have any technical details yet. I am awaiting to hear back from her.
My questions to you are:
Do you use the power conditioner Quantum Pro in one room? Do you plug your computer and other work electronics in etc? Do you keep it near you? How close?
Do you have more than 1?
Would the Qx4 work in a media closet even if the closet interior is shielded with grounded copper fabric? Meaning would the beneficial resonance make it through the media equipment and flow out via wires and ethernet?

You know, I once had a Comfort Clock, as they existed about 20 years ago. That was never an official part of the "Quantum Products" product line, but there were 3rd party distributors that sold them. As I recall, this was quite weak, much weaker than the Quantum Pro or Home, and I didn't really find it to do much for me at the time. Although I think I still had my mercury dental fillings in at the time, which may have been overriding any benefit I might be getting from any EMF protection device.

I never looked too closely at the Nordost products, mostly because they were outrageously expensive. Also I think they similar to the "Symphony" by ADD-Powr, which I already established for myself to be not as good as Quantum Products.

As for how many I use, it depends on the environment I'm in. At work I used my strongest Quantum Pro, plus a power conditioner. At home I use a weaker (original) Quantum Pro, plus a power conditioner. And I turn the Quantum Pro off overnight, as I find leaving it on makes it difficult for me to sleep through the night. I do find that there are issues with "too little" and "too much" Quantum Product usage, and over time I get the balance right for the particular environment.
But yes, I do use more than one Quantum Products product at a time -- they also had a portable "Quantum Companion" that I also use on top of everything else.
And yes, the power strip/power conditioner is used to plug in my PC, monitor, printer, etc. That's the best place for it to be plugged in, as those are the electronics that are causing me the most issues during the day.
And the Quantum Pro is right underneath the monitor, so I have easy access to it, and can adjust the power up or down as needed.

That I do not know. I have never used these things with shielding around them.
I will also add that if you can find a used Russ Andrews Clarity Pro, that is exactly the same thing as a Quantum Pro. As in it is a relabeled Quantum Pro, made by the same people. But they no longer sell these new.

It's an esoteric form of noise reduction / signal-to-noise ratio improvement, that broadcasts coherent energy to make the nearby environment more coherent. Which reduces symptoms in some people -- me, for one. I would never have been able to return to my workplace without this product line. Unfortunately it was poorly marketed and they essentially went out of business. The only market that this sort of technology can profitably stay in business is the high end audio/video world, where customers have a lot of money to spend on getting minor improvements in their audio/video gear. So companies like Nordost, ADD-Powr, Russ Andrews, and Kemp all sell gear for this market using similar technologies.
Quantum Products targeted people with health concerns over EMF, but failed to stay in business.
Over the years, I've certainly seen others say that this stuff helps them with their symptoms, but you'll also find just as many if not more saying that they noticed no difference. So it's basically like anything else recommended here, it may or may not help a given individual in their current environment and state of health.

Glad to hear the Springlife Polarizers are helping. Yes, I don't think there are any miracle cures here, but there are definitely things that can make things better. When I'm fatigued and need to go on a 3-mile dog walk, I put a large Springlife Polarizer in my pants pocket and it definitely helps my energy/stamina. It's almost like it's a battery-pack for a human being. :-)

As I recall, Bill Stierhout also once sold these QRT devices for EMF/health purposes. He called that line of products "Quantum Life". Although I think they were essentially the same thing as the Symphony/Symphony Pro that are sold in the audio/video world. The old versions didn't have the antenna that the new ones do.
Yes, he mentioned the antenna is just an add on and the inside still resonates, but you can use the antenna to lay near cabling or other electronics to enhance the field greater.
He mentioned it was for holistic health and then changed marketing for AV. Just like you stated... He seemed genuinely shocked about my condition and that others, in fact MANY people could be in need of these devices...
The Sorcer designs change the quality of the AC line (single phase) starting from the circuit breaker box and throughout the home or commercial space. It does not employ filters, isolation transformers, AC line regeneration, nor balanced power techniques. This harmonic resonator uses line transformers connected in series along with proprietary digital amplifier circuitry under algorithm control. The AC line is "re-referenced" or re-clocked with low frequency harmonics to increase the s/n ratio. Uses 2 AC transformers. 110/230 VAC 50/60 Hz.

Yeah, when I first started buying stuff from Quantum Products, I was working with an independent dealer of these products, and when I told him my reaction to one his weaker products (the Quantum Companion), he also commented that I must be really sensitive. :-)
They sure seem similar to the Quantum Products. I do have a trip and a few plug in surge protectors from them, not sure I notice anything.
However, I do own a few Furman power conditioners based on your recommendation years ago and the improvement in sound quality out of my TV is pretty amazing.
I listen with headphones and after plugging my TV and Cable Box into the strip the sound quality became almost 3D. Sometimes I think something is behind me when listening to some movies and TV shows.
I have one also near my computer and I don't notice as much since I don't listen to music on my computer but it's a great surge protector anyway.
