Swiss Digital Fuse Box - "What headroom sounds like"
@gladmo I am so impressed with how you’ve written the review that I had to post my enthusiasm immediately. Now back to the review.  
Can a better power cable make a difference if NOT plugged directly into an outlet?
Why no mention of Audience’s F5 cord? It’s above F3 and below Studio One and is $650. I’ve tried no Audience cords yet. However, I recently sought cord advice from a dealer who carries all of the gear I use, most of which I purchased from him. A... 
Biggest "bang for the buck" audio gear you have owned(in your history)?
1. Energy 22 Reference Connoisseur loudspeakers that retailed for $2400 USD in 1989 in Teakwood veneer, that I scored for $500 in factory cartons. Still have but replaced them only 14 months ago. Amazing 2-way floorstanding monitors. 2. Full-blow... 
New Synergistic Master Fuse
Sorry to report to fellow Lyngdorf 3400 owners, a fuse is a no-go. Online images of the 3400 with cover off shows what looks like a normal fuse but were too grainy to zoom with clarity. I took the lid off my Lyngdorf 3400 and discovered the fuse ... 
Any Experience with Audio Envy SP12?
@rlb61 Are you still happy with your AE SP12 speaker wire? Do you have a feel for how my hours it takes to hear their best?  Do you run your system 24/7 when breaking in new stuff?  If you do, it’s easier track the hours.   
Grimm MU1 Streamer - Really "The Best"?
@nyev the OP,  Did you try the SR purple fuse in your Innuos Zenith Mk 3?  I say try, of course because there is zero risk.  It can be returned. I’m very interested to hear your thoughts on it, if you try one. At the risk of overstating the mat... 
New Synergistic Master Fuse
@lordmelton that is an interesting proposal.  I appreciate it. There is yet another wrinkle, however.  A dealer tells me Isol-8 has a conditioner that he prefers to the Puritan for sound quality.  I’ll probably try it in the next 30-60 days.  If ... 
New Synergistic Master Fuse
BTW, the April issue of Enjoy The Music has Rick Becker’s world-premier review of the SR Master Fuse.  If I’m recalling correctly, he acknowledges the open question of what to do if one is torn between dac and streamer (for those that stream).  
New Synergistic Master Fuse
@jmfinney I am trying to decide between putting one in my integrated vs streamer. Considering SR suggests putting the Master in source gear or a conditioner, I’m only considering my integrated because it has a dac. Or perhaps more technically corr... 
FUSE BOX delivers perfect protection and superior sound
Thanks to the earlier adopters of this product for posting. If anyone has a link to comprehensive product information, I’d love to have it.  It sounds like the product comes with sluggo’s of brass and copper for the user to experiment with.  Is... 
New Synergistic Master Fuse
@lordmelton Thank you very much for the help. Really appreciate it.  
New Synergistic Master Fuse
Great question, Lordmelton.  The only viable place for a Master fuse is in my streamer.  My conditioner has no fuse and my Lyngdforf 3400 does the dac-ing and also has no replaceable fuse.  A purple in my streamer has been amazing, but I can sell ... 
Qln, Joseph Audio, Audiovector, Marten, or Canton...?
54 weeks ago I traveled to a dealer to hear QLN P 3’s, R3 Arrete’s and anything else he might have.  The demo was be done on the same integrated amp and streamer that I owned. The speakers and seat were set up carefully in a very proper listening... 
RiP Peter Breuninger AVShowrooms
Just learned of Peter’s passing from a friend. At this year’s Axpona, I was not in the building 60 yet, when Peter and Terry came walking by in the lobby.  I caught their eyes in order to tell them I enjoyed their videos. My condolences to his f... 
Competitive class D amp suggestions
+1 @snapsc I just heard Mr. Pass mention 2nd order harmonics in an interview. But your question about whether 3rd order harmonics is pleasing for complex music is interesting. And, while it may seem intuitive to presume that a system that can d...
