Info January 2018:
I’ve decided to retire this page, as it seems to have served its purpose. The examples were getting quite old and not many updates were posted. It seems that these days, most manufacturers know what true bypass is and isn’t, and they seem to know that we know too and can call them on it 🙂
I started amending or removing inclusions where the manufacturer has done their homework (altering the language in manuals, on websites etc, or altering the circuits themselves), and realized I could really only keep one or two postings. And those are already well known, so there’s no point in keeping the list at all.
From now on, when I make new discoveries in this field, they will get their own article. And the first one is on the way, based on the last update to this list.
