So are Russ andrews fuses Smile  About an inch! Wink 

Presumeably need to replace all fuses in the circuit including mains distribution board. What about RCB's tho I still have old wire fuses ??
Is the water pipe analogy valid using a 6inch pipe throttled down to 1inch restricting flow? Mmph.

Yamaha V2065. MS Mezzo 5.1 Panasonic 42. Sony BD. Garrard 86SB. WD Live TV. SkyHD.

More to the point, do 24 carat gold fuses give better stereo imaging than 9 carat?

RE: Hi-Fi tuning extreme fuses, any thoughts?

Take care of your mains infrastructure, from the consumer unit to your system. Its all about cost of course. These plug fuses are properly designed  they just use better litz wire, but still blow when they are supposed to! The benefits of this approach will be clearly evident. Upgrading further down the chain will not bring the expected performance boost you are looking for, unless you take care of your mains first!

Plenty of good articles on the web. Check out Russ andrews site also. You dont have to buy his products, but a wealth of very good advice etc.

Cheers

RE: Hi-Fi tuning extreme fuses, any thoughts?

what about the fuses in the devices themselves, or is it somehow that only the fuses in the powercords make a difference? :?

Oh dear. More nonsense. Don't believe everything you read on the internet. Neither mains quality or voltage will have any affect on performance on well designed gear.

Oh dear! Another obtuse individual. No difference/ dont believe, etc ,etc! And your qualification to speak sir? Mains considerations most definitely do make a profound difference, and affect (Not effect) The overall performance of an audio system.

My qualification(S) to speak sir? Well not in any particular order of importance:

1) Over fourty years in the industry.

2) More than fourty years as an enthusiast

3) B.Tech(Bachelor of technology) Electrical engineering

4) Bsc(Hons) Sound engineering (Southampton)

May i be so bold as to suggest? Know what you are talking about before trying to give advice here! People who post on this (And other forums) Mostly know there subject. And are true enthusiasts, who only want to help where they can!

To my knowledge, there are no internal equipment fuses available? But they sit on the PCB in most cases and would not make much of a difference any how. The ones in the plug do.

serious non leading question, but why would only make a difference in the plug?

If you really had those qualifications you would, or at least should, know bettter. But I'll play. Kindly explain in technical terms how anything on the mains can affect the performance of, say, an amplifier..
