The secret to a great amplifier...

Is a $150 Orange fuse from Synergistic Research. Seriously, extreme boost in sonic performance. Blacker background, larger soundstage... if I wanted to make some bucks, I’d put these is cheap OEM compnents and start letting the accolades and purchasers come calling.

Mind you, I have a high value-oriented $20k system, so it was nice before, but damn!
It seems that some in this forum are scouring the posts with relish, trying to pick apart an offending word or comma so that they may spew their venom.

  • Our fuse-less short-circuit protection circuit Sentry Monitor™ that disengages the output stage before current exceeds safe operating levels and then resets automatically when operating conditions return to normal

I would say these days, fuses in the output of amplifiers are not overly common. Some amps have them, but these are now the exception, not the rule.
