So true. Perhaps group buys for unobtanium and unicorn tears, as well?

But it is still copper traces on the PCB on both sides of the fuse!. What to do!?!

I'm getting desperate and con-fuse-d!

How do fuses affect the sound quality?
One must remember that the users of these users ARE experiencing a change in the sound of their system. It’s called expectation bias, and the fact that they believe that the fuses make an improvement, along with the reinforcement of the belief through the fact that they payed for it, and installed it, will make the expectation true for them

This is how all the little tweaks and such work... Think about somebody who pays $10,000 for some fancy wire to connect 2 components together... if you believed it so much that you were willing to spend that kind of money, you think that you could get home, place into the system and hear no difference?

Completely correct. These definitely "bypass the technical limitations"- that's very good phrasing- technical has nothing to do with how they're affecting perception. I do think we sometimes get differences that are technically hard to justify that actually DO affect sound, but stickers are purely for the true believers.

Reading direct mail audiophile accessory catalogue was fun, but sadly it seems those entertaining voodoo items are gradually disappearing from the market.

a fuse in the hands of a drunk is a very dangerous thing

Wow. Just......wow. A $225.00 fuse with a 125 hour “break in” period and five star reviews to confirm.

Another great example of snake oil.

"The new Ultimate is extremely difficult to build considering Audio Magic is drilling into both sides of the fuse now, sometimes it takes up to 3 tries to get one good fuse - lots of labor involved."

Yeah... I don't really want a modified fuse that has unreliable production methods near my equipment. I prefer my equipment not break or burn my house down.

The hell is wrong with people....
