Such a deal
Crap, I can't afford one because I spent all my money on a $500 knob job.
Uh oh Chu!! Don't let the boys at the "other" forum see you guys making fun of this!!
SEVERAL over there claim these exact fuses are AMAZING and claim they have done the following to their system:
The ringleader of the fuse movement claims his TV is MORE 3-D and vibrant etc..he sounds like a preacher he harps on the virtues of these so much.
Myself and a couple others get chastised(sp)repeatedly for saying that it's basically all in their heads.
This should be interesting reading!
Dunno which other forum it is but I'm sure it's filled with the faithful who'll swear they saw the image of some religious figure or another on a vinyl record.
You're calling the wrong #'s in the phone book if they are costing you $500.
As for the other forum...
It's not Hard To Tell which one I'm talking about...
Wink wink, nudge nudge....
This is the knob job I was talking about. Actually it is only $485. Almost enough left over to buy one of those fuses!
An amusing "review" of "The Fuse"
Interesting that basically the same thing costs $2.49 at Radioshack.
in all seriousness though, i always thought it was a *bad* idea to use slo-blow fuses? higher chance of it frying other stuff before blowing, etc???
Most definitely can be, but it depends on the application. I'm not an EE, but I work with a lot of big electro-mechanical equipment and there are some instances when you want a slo-blow fuse.
Slow blows are recommended by James Worthy and Kobe Bryant. Some times you pay a little, sometimes a lot. But you would use one to replace the same kind. I wouldn't go around haphazardly switching things around.
Faster transients? What's that? The system has become psychic?
Airy and spacious : Refers to what is inside the head of the potential buyer
I would not expect to hear any difference in sound if an amp is equipped with slow blow fuses. Except that a fuse does have some resistance or even impedance which if not miniscule would change the sound quality in the same manner as too thin speaker wires.
Big electromechanical equipment is more likely to draw heavy current for short periods of time (particularly when starting up), less likely to fry quickly if overloaded, but can still fry if overloaded for a long period of time. This is what slow blow fuses are meant for.
Solid state electronics are more likely to fry quickly when overloaded, thus the general desire not to use slow blow fuses with it.
