$159.00 Directional Fuse Hogwash?

<< < (13/13)

Dunkemhigh,

Regarding the source material….. I agree but what I was meaning was…. With some audiophiles so focussed on maximum audio fidelity, how do they mentally cope with the idea that the source material is so ‘compromised’ at the recording stage. When people are spending many thousands of Dollars on cables etc, I would expect their minds to implode when they realised how ‘appallingly poor’ the equipment was that actually captured the original audio signal ;D  In an Audiophoolery environment that hates anything less than ‘acoustic perfection’ how can a source of less than perfection be tolerated ? It may well be beyond the Audiophile to correct the terrible fidelity issues that they might perceive being introduced by such ‘imperfect’ recording studios but surely that would annoy their amazing ‘sonically calibrated and perfect’ ear drums that they moisturise daily with concentrated Angels tears  ;D

The perfectionist can have a very troubled mind in an imperfect World !

And let us not forget the old saying… garbage in - garbage out  ;D

Oh you could so mess with an audiophiles head if you really wanted to  :-+

To be clear…. We are discussing Audiophoolery and Audiophools here and NOT Hi-Fidelity enthusiasts for whom I have nothing but respect. High Fidelity reproduction of a source material, no matter what the original quality, is totally understandable. Worrying about the electron flow direction in a power supply fuse is a million miles away from the thought processes of Hi-Fidelity enthusiasts and designers that I have met….. they live in the real world and genuinely care about correct amplifier design, component noise figures, crosstalk, harmonic distortion and other specifications that are based upon good science and fact rather than Snake Oil salesman Audiophoolery theories and products.

If a Hi-Fidelity designer asked me to pay £10K for his amplifier because he has spent 15 years of his life perfecting it and hand picked components, based on real testing in order to create the best possible bandwidth, noise floor, distortion, channel balance and separation…. All hand built on very high quality PCB’s with only first grade components of the highest true (not Audiophool) specifications, I might consider his product worthy of such an asking price.
A life’s work deserves just rewards. I still would not spend that sort of money on the amplifier though as I know my poor ‘acoustically abused’ ears are over 50 years old and imperfect ! ;D

They wouldn't take it apart to desolder a resistor and solder a new one in but... perhaps they might take it apart to attach the stick-on uni-directional e-field tube wrapper. Easy for the owner, and since the tube has to be split to get it on, you can always say they didn't join up the edges correctly if they don't notice any difference. You could make it out of something quite brittle too.

Now your getting it. You can make money on that!  :-DD
