Opinions on gold plated fuses.
 
Can I get your opinions and comments on these http://www.psaudio.com/products/criticallink.asp

"starting at $29.95" for a fuse???????

There are fools out there who will buy those and many worse stupid hyped up expensive things.

They're not just gold plated, they're cryo-treated!

Thumbs up on the most economical upgrade I've done in awhile! I am guessing this is going to be a HUGE upgrade for amps and other devices that don't already have AHP fuses.
he's a phool alright.......looking at other audiophool snake oil gadgets out there, I see where he's coming from to say a $30 fuse is economical. :clown:

the fuse has OFC copper end caps and OFC copper fuse element. what next? pure silver fuses? oh wait!!! don't copy my idea!!!! I'm going to make and sell pure silver fuses soon!!! :smash:

you could get gold plated fuses for car audio for about $1-2 but that is no fun. (and it aint cryo treated) :D

Why bother with that?

buy this, stick it in the freezer over night... a lot cheaper!!!
