He knows it too, which is why he keeping banging on about the alleged sonic benefits but and tars anybody who plays the safety card as a troll. No wonder there are so few posting there. :snooty:

Jack Nicholson says it so much better than me:

As I said on my moderated post on TAS, he cannot habndle the truth that these fuses are not certified to the correct standards, and are possibly dangerous.

Onto the 55th page of the fuse thread and another nugget from the Rev:
Rev MartinT wrote:I fired up the system today, started playing some music and had a thought: I had no recollection of replacing the fuse in the IEC socket yada yada yada and there was a small but noticeable improvement to drum beats and openness in her voice, which is particularly expressive
Just about sums him up really, just listen to the bloody music man :angry-screaming: what little grey matter he has between his ears must be in a constant state of flux and turmoil, so how does he find the time to simply enjoy the music? :naughty:

I've never fired up my system. Use standard fuses. I do listen to music.

What would measuring a fuse prove?
***************************************************************

That the item is fit for purpose, which is seriously in doubt. Have you seen what happens to a plug fuse when in has no sand infill. That should be a wake up call for you as the SR is not safe and WILL EXPLODE with 240v short across them, because they have no safety infill of sand or ground quartz.

DaveC has asked MCRU to send him fuses to measure. Don't expect a response.
A scathing comment from MCRU about Wonky's detection to HFS. I think he is getting rattled as, based on the evidence, more and more people are realising that it is one big illegal scam.

All Mr MCRU has achieved with his comment is losing a customer. Once again he only has half of the information and jumps to a conclusion.

For someone who claims he has the proof of certification of these fuses, why does he not just share it?

I also notice that the threads about fuses have been merged, and no longer read in a coherent way.
It is best I leave them to it.

I think we are sidelining directionality of wire as spoken about by PS Audio.

Ball of confusion

Wire is directional. It needs to join point A to point B.
I really don’t think the electrons care which way the travel.

Wire is a components, it has reactance (resistance capacitance inductance) even if in vanishingly small quantities. It is the reactance that creates the directionality in twisted / stranded wire.
