Absolute quietest barrel???

Hi guys, I just ordered an Empire Axe and a Dye Rotor and I have a few questions due to the fact that I'm new to this type of marker...
My goal is to reduce the sound as much as possible.
I have an iFit kit but I don't know in a paint-to-bore match with the stock barrel will be as quiet as I want to go...which is pretty much as quiet as possible.
So I have heard that I want to reduce the operating pressure and dwell (which I don't understand yet), put in a lurker bolt and add a quiet barrel...
Lowering the operating pressure sounds logical and I have read many posts on the Lurker bolt but my big question is what is the absolute quietest barrel?
Someone told me the carbon fiber barrels are always the quietest? But I've also heard that the Dye Boomstick, deadlywinds and lurker barrels are very quiet. I think the Dye is like $150 and I don't know if I can justify that...

It seems like everyone always gives one single answer of what they think the best product is, but maybe this time you guys could give your top three or top choices? The quietest and then you're two runner up's maybe...

This would not only help out, but I think it would be a great thread!

Get a 84 or lower cf boomstick. By boring your paint youll be able to lower your pressure therefor making your gun more quiet.

Btw- cf boomy. Most quiet barrel ive ever used

84? Searched it? Results found nothing... Does this mean a .840 size?
Lower cf BoomStick? what does the "lower" part mean?

Afterthought:

You mean a cf BoomStick size .840 or less, correct?

I was on the same quest with my Axe.

I've tried CP, Dye UL, Deadlywinds and Disruptive

The Lurker Eigenbarrel is the quietest by far

He hit me up, I guess he had been working a lot... Seems like a really nice guy. I asked if he would send me a few 015's because I was worried about the spacer slipping. From what I read sometimes they can slip and I don't want to have to worry about it. He was very helpful and said "no problem at all". I will really strongly be considering buying a barrel or two from him as well.

I know this may be kind of silly, but I searched for a rotor color that has been discontinued so that it would match my Olive and Earth Axe. So I know it doesn't matter for some but I like my gear matching ..
The lurker barre isl black... And again, I know it does not matter for some but I like my set-ups to match.

Is it possible to have someone anodize the outside in that Earth color without messing up the barrel? Or is this totally ridiculous?

No problem and lurker is top notch when it comes to customer service andnhis shipping charges are insanely low.

I have an Olive axe as well but swapped out all the earth parts for black.
