New Synergistic Master Fuse

New From VH Audio,

Synergistic Master Fuse cost $595.00

I'll stick with Orange Fuses.


The increased pricing of each new Synergistic fuse is pretty strong evidence that the game afoot here is expectation bias, leveraging trite, shallow assumptions that you get what you pay for. and newer is better.

The money-back trial is just a math equation for extremely high-margin products.  If If the guarantee doubles the number of trials,  you don't care if some (or many) are returned because the net profit is massively increased.  And if you're marketing something as elusive as sound perception then once-bought, the product is often kept because it might be making a difference.

I seems that in every product category (yes, high end fuses ARE a product category), there's a desire to create a product in a space not yet occupied.  Elevating the price point 2x the existing "reference" is nothing new in high end audio.  And, in each and every case, highly energetic discussions occur challenging their cost vs performance.

For the "right" system, this $595 fuse might be the best bang for the buck invested to date in the system.  Or, not.  Only a listening test will determine their true value to the listener.


 I talked to Synergistic Research  yesterday asking if this master fuse could go in my amp or pre amp. The answer was no. They only suggest putting it in a dac.

  Some here might be getting ahead of themselves. 

Why, exactly what else was said? That’d be plus two for some ... more or less for others.
