Thumbs up Easy Tweak for Sound Improvement!

This tweak is my own idea.
AND IT WORKS WELL

Put aside all other garbage you try to get
better mains-power-supply, to your machines!

And then buy 5-10 different mains-fuses.
The best one for you is then decided
by intense listening-tests!

I can ASSURE you, there are big difference
with all kinda music.


I now have found my best main-fuses.
They are the ones with 10A rating.
It might be some other for your special equipment.

The good thing is that just a few dollars
makes music worth listening to, again

this is the problem, when you do not know, you have doubt it will work
there is a big difference between having a guess and to actually try

I can recommend you try my tweak
and use your ears and then come back here.

You be surprised how well you will be able to notice
changed and improved sound if you have good ears.
Some mains fuses can sound almost the same
.. but then you find your lucky one

Note:
The Following is normal general Knowledge.
If your household Mains Fuses should be 6 Ampere.
Then you should never use one rated for higher current
But you can try other brands and same and lower rated, for example 6A, 4A, 2A

Hasn't this all been said before?

Why bother with snake-oil mains interconnects, gold-plated "audiophile" plugs and sockets etc if the connection from the electricity supplier is rubbish/garbage/cow-poo.

In the UK, although it is possible to fit a separate, dedicated spur for hifi with breaker, new regulations say there must be a RCD in line ( thank you, EU ) and all power goes through the suppliers master fuse, which it is illegal to tamper with.

All you need is a setup that doesnt "depend" on such "tricks"
Some people think that this sensitivity to "snake-oil" tweaks is a quality factor...I believe in the opposite and look at it more like a hyper sensitive and unstable amp, which we may agree is not so good

There is also the option to use audio grade fuses.
They are specially made for high quality audio sound.

I have ordered some 5 ampere, BGF, Black Grade Fuse mains fuses.
They look just great!
I ordered the type that is said to add clarity and cleanness to bass and rich, soft warmth to the highs.
I be back with my review of these.
