    Default Quantum Science fuses.

    Has anyone on here bought or tried Quantum Science fuses, or any after-market high end fuses for that matter? If so what’s your opinion.

    Not tried them, but interestingly enough, there are no measurements showing how they work.
    How can 20mm of wire make a difference, at the input of your device? I am intrigued to see feedback from happy users though.

    “Nothing discloses real character like the use of power. It is easy for the weak to be gentle. Most people can bear adversity. But if you wish to know what a man really is, give him power. This is the supreme test. It is the glory of Lincoln that, having almost absolute power, he never abused it, except on the side of mercy.”

    “You see these dictators on their pedestals, surrounded by the bayonets of their soldiers and the truncheons of their police ... yet in their hearts there is unspoken fear. They are afraid of words and thoughts: words spoken abroad, thoughts stirring at home -- all the more powerful because forbidden -- terrify them. A little mouse of thought appears in the room, and even the mightiest potentates are thrown into panic.”

    how about replacing the fuse in the mains cable to the component with a bar of the finest Pure solid silver and fitting a 10p standard fuse in the extension lead from the wall socket ?

    I must admit that I’ve been totally agnostic about fuses but reading some of the comments just shows that you seem to have closed minds. I asked the question to try to get an intelligent answer. Clearly none of you guys have actually tried an after market fuse.

    I think you did get quite a few intelligent answers. If something cannot possibly work then there is no point in trying it. Same reason I have never jumped off my roof and flapped my arms to see if I can fly.

    Any perceived benefit is entirely psychological. When we do a tweak we listen to judge if it has been effective. That means we listen differently to how we would normally and so we perceive differently too. The output signal of the device with the magic fuse in it does not change, therefore the sound cannot change.

    They're a con. Don't waste your time and money.
