The first, most crucial link of your audio/video system
Certainly, the fuse inside your 10x38 mm fuse holder is amongst the most underestimated components. Relatively big enhancements can be achieved with little effort by replacing the existing HiFi Tuning Gold² fuse with the sensational all new HiFi-Tuning Supreme³ 10x38 mm fuse which has been designed specifically as an upgrade for existing fuses of all brands and types for audio/video applications. This is an astonishing upgrade for your AHP Klangmodul as well.
This fuse by German manufacturer HiFi-Tuning has pure OFC Cardas copper caps, which in addition have a golden finish to prevent oxidation. The melting wire is a straight one made of Cardas copper too. In addition, this wire runs through an ceramic body filled with fine sand. The fuse is cryogen and WA-Quantum treated.
The audible result of this upgrade is a bass response that's more taut and goes deeper, a better reproduction of details, and all together a more natural, richer and cleaner sound that's reproduced with the right timbre.
- Looking for a 230 Volt fuse ! Review by Nick
I was looking for an audiophile 230V fuse for my fuse box in my house (separate a/v circuit).
I installed one of the first HiFi-Tuning Ultimate² Fuse 10x38 mm in my system. After installing I was surprised what that fuse can do.
Two years later I had a switch to the De Groef Audio flat wire fuse. Still it was an improvement over the Ultimate². Reason that I can imagine is that the (flat)wire is fast cooling down and makes the current less disturbed…
Take notice of the direction of the fuses (no hocus pocus) . Try it out and give yourself some time to judge. What I do is take out the rod (tube) for the neutral and take instead the same fuse as for the phase. Take caution if something goes wrong the phase could be still active.
Now, since a few weeks ago I installed the HiFi-Tuning Supreme³ Silver/Copper Fuse 10x38 mm. Don't forget or let me say that the Ultimate is an enormous difference against the standard circuit breakers but the Supreme³ , OMG.
Right after installing the Supreme³ I noticed in my way, the colors of my 4K TV. Black is blacker. I thought the previous fuse was the end of fusing the 230V circuit.
You can’t imagine what that fuse does with current. My TV, let say my music, all of it is upgraded with a whole new way of experience A/V. Music is more natural, bass was ok and now even more controlled. Specially the mid/high's are more uncolored and noticed much much less hardness. Everything is flowing, what makes it more comfortable to listen- and watch to. Less annoying resulting in relaxation.
Remark : all fuses are T20A, you still have you're differential switch.
That's maybe my next step what Kemp Elektroniks is offering when some day (year) the budget is available.
Thanks and enjoy the A/V experience.
