    Dunno why you're buggering about with power supplies and wires - just stick some "go faster" stripes on it and you'll be sorted

    More tinkering today...


    AMR Gold fuse prefitted to power supply and the new SR Blue. Some blurb that came in the box. Have the SR Blacks in my system and they were a bit all over the place until they settled down.


    Fuse fitted and ready to screw the lid back.

    Straight from switching back on the picture was noticably brighter, sharper and colours popped with greater contrast.
    I need to adjust the tv picture settings again.
    Crikey.

    Watched the latest episode of Star Trek Discovery in 4K HDR on Netflix, blown away by the picture improvement.
    Looked ‘real’, different uniform textures...light catching strands of hair...pores in skin, all that stuff just drew your eyes in.

    Most surprising change was the sound?
    Last few days Ive been playing music through the TV as one of my 300B valves went pop and Im waiting replacement.
    Sound quality pretty good through Sony TV panel, could live with it easily for a while.

    After fitting the new fuse the bass was much deeper, punchier and tighter...from the tv.
    Music sounded noticably better.

    Guess Im making more of the linear psu now, of course caps n stuff will need to burn in as will(disbelievers look away now) the SR fuse.
    Still the Furutech/ Mundorf silver wire IEC to fit when that comes, should be another step in eliminating any mains bottlenecks in the Oppo and letting it really do its thing.

    Superb bit of kit this, look forward to hear how it plays as a CD transport and Roon endpoint after all the mods are done and bedded in.
    Sounds pretty great as is just through the telly, look forward to it strutting its stuff when my system is back up and running with the New 300Bs.

    *EDIT*
    Musics on in the background, soundstage is much wider than before, more detail, more natural and less shut in sounding, I like this!
