Quantum Science Audio Ultra High-End Fuse ($2,844 ea): My first reaction to hearing about the benefits of changing to these fuses was incredulity, to say the least. Then, when learning the price, I actually laughed out loud and said ”no way, I don’t give a s**t what they do.” I now have to admit that I have to eat those words. The sonic improvements these fuses make are simply astonishing and that is an understatement. In my system (Behold BPA768 amp & pre-amp), there were immediate and DRAMATIC improvements in every aspect of sound that you can think of, (bass, midrange purity, sweet highs, immense soundstage, etc.) with the result that everything becomes more like the real thing and listening pleasure is increased to a level that continues to amaze. Are they worth the money? Let’s just say I, and others, have spent far more for an improvement in sound that falls far short of what these things do. (Ron Cook)"
This is definitely a point of diminishing returns. I don't think any one of us here would likely spend more than $175-225 for a single fuse. That being said, if you own a Bugatti Veyron, then this could be an option for you!!
Take a 10 cent BUS fuse and put a nice heat shrink label on it for another 5 cents, spend an hour or two making up a nice marketing story then sell them for $750 to some very gullible individual without any science background like a lawyer or a History professor or better yet an audiophile whose lay instinct has visions of grandeur. Nice profit. Heck, if the pharmaceutical industry can get away with it why not some poor shlub like me. Nah, not smart enough.
"I could not believe the effect that took place.....I thought any improvement......would be a small one. Boy, was I wrong! These tiny miracles allowed my.....current significant attributes to expand beyond what I thought possible.
"Looks like the Pfizer folks may be writing their ad copy...
It’s the law of diminishing marginal returns. As more and more audiophiles are getting vaccinated against snake oil bites they’re less likely to get bitten.
The peddlers have to therefore financially compensate by ramping up the prices to comical levels hoping for some sucker to bite. Everyone knows there’s one born every minute. It’s just a question of finding them.
The rest of us know that once you get past 10p a fuse there’s not much more happening.
However if you want to live dangerously, and your circuit breaker is up to the job, you can always try to substitute a 13 amp fuse for a 3/5 amp one. [For extra unnecessary risk you could always add a ghost chilli to your next meal].
Alternatively I will generously offer you some hi-tech hand polished 3amp, 5amp, or 13amp fuses for @$100 each. In the colour of your choice.
That will save you a massive $2844.00 dollars you could put towards a real upgrade.
A win win situation. I get your money and you get the satisfaction of basking in a self induced hypnotic suggestion for a few weeks.
By the time it wears off, as it must, I will have some more serpent grease ready for your consumption.
At a fair price of course.
If you are short of funds and prepared to do some work, then perhaps I can recommend some self hypnosis.
Remove any existing fuse and simply place it under a home made pyramid and chant the following 5 times.
’Son-ic en-lighten-ment be upon thee’ Now replace the fuse and prepare for a few weeks of aural delight.
Otherwise I can do the important work for you or sell you a home suggestion DIY kit with some standard fuses enclosed at the reduced price of $49.00 each.
Ya gotta love the "90-Day Upgrade Program." Instead of upgrading my amplifiers, I should of just upgraded my fuses. I never even knew my gear had "bottle neck distortion" so thank goodness there is a remedy. I like how they put an arrow on each fuse - "insuring directionality." Imagine a new career path in the fuse direction-selection department, right next door to the body shop where they choose colors and paint arrows. I hope $2,844 is enough to cover costs.

Yeah, we've covered why this idea and also the idea of "soldering a straight wire instead of a fuse" is a completely BAD idea in another thread. The problem here is putting a 13A fuse in a preamp type device that normally has a 1-2A fuse. The transformer and power supply may never pull 13A of current even if there is a short somewhere in the circuit. This means that the device will not necessarily pop the main 15A house circuit breaker and will constantly be a current drain that can heat the device internals to a point where it can cause a fire. That is the primary reason why fuses/circuit breakers need to be sized carefully.
One of my Moab crossovers is out on the table. I am taking a break from wrangling it out of there. Then measure, and back in it goes. The new one will incorporate as much of the "lights out" magic as I can manage. Think your speakers, only inside. 😍😂
Personally I know several guys with $$6 figure audio systems ,not one I know will dump $2k on a fuse. The best upgrade I have found is Hifidelity audio cables 3D Nano contact enhancer that treats a whole system+ including making any fuses better and I have used on the very good Synergistic 🍊 fuses. Speaking for myself, I just don’t have $1,000s just to blow .
Didn't have to this time, many times previously I’ve asked him to confirm what you fusers say about AC fuses being directional and other snake oil things. Not once did he back you fusers, NOT ONCE.
No. You didn't, Georgie. Do you think that if you type something here, on A'gon, that it goes to Ted's inbox? Really?
I brought it up to you that Ted was actively here on a couple of threads and you were busy shouting sh*t on another thread. Ted even showed up on that thread and you did your "quiet as a church mouse" routine. Never once did you address Ted directly. Talk about a paper tiger.
Now, what about Yamaha and what their engineers found out?
George what makes you think Mr Denney's forums were removed by AG? I'll bet you if they were removed He chose to do it.. Why would they remove, what EVERYONE would want to see and judge for themselves.
Makes no sense to me.. Nothing but pure revenue generating propaganda. Isn't AG based on profit. It's all FUN and games until it's time to pay the bills.. Snake oil or not... Snake oil will shine boots.. and cars and on and on and on.. Read your horoscope today? :-) there is BIG money in terra card reading, too..
You ever see the Crystal Cathedral. I don't see people worried about other peoples giving there with NOTHING guaranteed, but you gave your money away to a big haired preacher..
SEE that bugs me... NON profit organizations, THIEVES, ALL OF THEM...Lock um all up..
Mr Denney offers a money back deal.. PICK your fights a little better George.. How's that water problem.. Ever get it to go down the toilet the right way yet. :-)
