@tom8999- Replacing your source's 12V wall-wart, with the Teddy power supply, should make a major improvement in presentation. If you shop; you may find one used, at(hopefully) a substantial savings. Also: Michael Spallone may have ideas, on making upgrades to what you have now. He does wonders with power supplies, like the Synergistic MPCs. Shoot him a PM, if interested: https://www.audiogon.com/messages/new?recipient_id=275763&layout=true
Jerrybj - thanks for the input on the Orange fuses you just got into your system. I am still on the fence and have not ordered anything as yet. My Krell KAV 400xi just got sent back to Krell for service - developed a ‘hum’ at higher volumes after 15 years of use. Hopefully it is repairable. I am on hold until this issue is corrected.
Tom, the best tweak for your audio system is a bottle of wine. The problem with this tweak is everything sounds like ---- the next day.
>>>>I’ll give it a shot. What do you do, pour it on the amplifier?
tom8999 OPDon’t get sucked in, just use the one that came new with the Krell KAV 400 xi, Krell aren’t stupid they know what works best as they are EE design technicians and not voodooist. Save your money for something real like an equipment upgrade instead.
There’s reason why many of these snake oil fuse threads get shut down.
Dear @tom8999 : This is today snake oil in fuses. We can read there in what ways change our system characteristics. It's as if we change the whole system for a totally new higher priced one. Way better than any other fuse in the world:
Maybe the orange with beeswax could outperform it.
Btw, you can start a new fuse thread with the beeswax ones and follow again the fuse'e party, a learning party.
Regards and enjoy the MUSIC NOT DISTORTIONS,
It’s been my experience that electronics designers are usually the last to get the memos regarding a whole range of audiophile advancements lo these last thirty years or so. You know the ones - power cords, vibration isolation, fuses, fuse and wire directionality. “Solid engineering practices“ has become nothing more than a euphemism for backsliding concepts of the 70s and 80s and unreasonable hyper-focus on circuits. 👀
What about following this guys lead below, after which you can commit yourself and join Geoff.
Oh BTW Jerry, this is Geoff’s voodoo snake oil site, you should find some you don’t have, maybe, you two should get on like a house on fire
GeorgehifiGeorge, your wisdom is intimidating, as is your quick wit.
I love your ability to listen to others, how open you are to other view points and experiences, your respectfulness, fairness and compassion.
How kind you are to others. What an awesome human being...
I love your ability to listen to othersLove listening to others that have something "sound" to say, just not snake oil voodooist like you two, it needs culling from hi-end audio as it’s doing it harm.
How kind you are to others.Very kind to those that need it or ask for it you’ll see if you search, just not to those that believe in voodoo snake oil products, that only in Scientology could it have a place.
Scientology believes in effective tweeks? Who knew?
Seriously though... Copying Jerry's post was in bad taste. That makes me wonder... George, are you just angry your products don't sell as well as the tweeks do? Maybe you should start selling tweeks instead of whatever it is you sell. (Just trying to help)
Some comments to George and his ’less than reasonable’ posts.
I see grammar is not one of his strengths.
Also, a thesaurus may help...
Love listening to others that have something "sound" to say.Then stop listening to those who don’t agree with you.
There’s reason why many of these snake oil fuse threads get shut down.Because people like you ruin it with unreasoned diatribe.
What about following this guys lead below, after which you can commit yourself and join Geoff.You show how petty you really are with these personal attacks.
Your names not Geoff, last time I looked, but after that maybe you should add yourself.Your comprehension of replies is low, as evidenced by your responses. Automatically reaching for putdowns is not an argument.
Giving you a play pen buddy GKThe only person who loses here is you. If only you could see how your inane thinking is showcased in every comment.
In the end it shows how absurd you are...
*These are just from this one thread.
Have I told you lately how good the SR Orange fuses are?
Have I told you lately how good the PPT Omega + E mats are?
Have I told you lately that the products produced by these two companies have nothing to do with "voodoo" are not "snake oil?"
Have I told you lately that these two companies are not affiliated in any way?
Have I told you lately how much I enjoy your inane posts?
Dear @oregonpapa : "" Have I told you lately how good the SR Orange fuses are?

I used all the SR fuses models but the orange and before the SRs other boutique fuses.
Every one has its own colorations that at the end are only added " nice " distortions that sounds just " diferent " of what we are accustom to.
My audio system electrical power supply is totally and secure/bullet proof regulated line, with filter noise levels and obviously surge protections.
So, I made it something to confirm or not if those boutique fuses are or not true snake oil and what I did was to take out/disappear all the input fuses in all the system electronic items and guess what: suddenly the listened MUSIC achieves its real and true rigthness ( like a live music. ) that all those boutique fuses not ever can dream because those boutique fuses only DISTORT the audio signal and are true SNAKE OIL no matters what.
Now, that many people as you like it what you listen just does not means is rigth because in reality is wrong with those added colorations/distortions. In the past I like those distortions till I learned.
Don't believe me and please do it your self a favor making what I did it.
The snake oil issue of the orange SR or other that kind of fuse should not be only a matters of opinion but a test comparison against no fuse at all and till you don't have that first hand experiences about you just can't understand why your SRs are true snake oil devices.
Useless to argue about till you have your own first hand experiences and I'm totally sure that if you do it then never comeback: no-return ever.
Btw, I only take out the input fuses not some internal fuses that some electronics has.

My latest tweaks,
1. Black USB Schumann frequency generator (2)
2. PPT “sandwich” for my Sony Walkman 🚶🏻CD player - eMat underneath, two eCards on top
3. PWB Gold Morphic Barcode device for my wallet (their brand new product)
4. PWB Christmas card for window sill, my 20th PWB Christmas card 🎅
5. Wipe down headphone cable, wiring for Schumann devices, headphones, CD with Bounce anti-static tissue
Did you replace all of the fuses with copper plugs?
Also, I don't know how you can classify that something is "snake oil," when admittedly, you said the after-market fuses improved your sound and you liked the results:
Here’s a link to the Blue and Black USB Schumann frequency generators from Hong Kong sold on eBay. So cute! I use the BLACK device which is more accurate than the BLUE. The listing is for the BLUE device. To order a BLACK unit you need to specify quantity of 2 of the BLUE units. Then you’ll get one BLACK. Yes, I know it’s a little confusing.
Note: you want to position the USB device (or any Schumann device) at height of about 5 feet so you’ll need a standard 2 amp wall wart and 6 ft long USB cable for each device.
