Re: The Audio Standard Forum.

MCRU - There is something quite special about these fuses, I only started this thread a source of amusement and was quite taken aback when I saw the length of it last week, yes it stirs debate and almost always some people get quite irate about the subject matter as they always seem to do with anyt...

Re: The Audio Standard Forum.

Re: Snake Oil

They buy them and similar because they are under the influence of bullshit, that is one of the main reasons this forum exists - to counter it.
