    Olá Vitor,

    Sim, já está tudo bem obrigado. Daí andar novamente activo nestas coisas do áudio.
    O sistema é que é sempre o mesmo. Mas mexendo aqui e ali o desempenho lá vai melhorando.

    Grande abraço

    Re: Spock system (the importance of fine tuning)

    Ok, I think this is the end of presentation…

    FUSES

    I tried several as you can see. Bussman; AMR, AHP; Hifi Tuning; Synergistic Research; Audiofidem (*) and Audio Magic (**)



    And my option was… Audio Magic!

    Audiofidem (made by a friend of mine) are wonderful too. They are absolutely neutral. But Audio Magic, in my system, have a more bodied sound. Lyngdorf sound is a little cold so they match perfectly. I guess Audiofidem will be perfect in those systems with lots a bass and even a little dark sound.

    (*) http://allforhifi.com/index.php?id_c...oller=category

    (**) https://store.jaguaraudiodesign.com/...-liquid-fuses/

    Best fuses: Audio Magic (Super) and Audiofidem (Blackfidem). Both brands are way ahead of others.

    Best Buy: AMR (a bargain). AHP has a close sound but a little more expensive.

    Hifi Tuning and Synergistic Research – don´t work on my system.

    Bussman – a little better than the regular ones.

    … yes, lots of audiophiles just don´t believe in fuses! Each one makes their choices!

    Live!

    Re: Spock system (the importance of fine tuning)

    Fuses are the one thing I have not played just because then I talked to Nordost in regards to the fuse in the QB MK II power distribution.

    They indicated I was already set on the high quality spec’d fuse they incorporate and don’t need to worry about it and also include a spare which I find odd they didn’t charge for like everything else.

    Re: Spock system (the importance of fine tuning)

    I already had the opportunity to try the Quantum (QRT4) in my system and just loved the effect. Probably this results from the use of a good fuse.


    As for those, I changed one in the CD player, one in the pre and two in the power (one in the power zone and another in the capacitors zone).


    Note:
    After answering I saw this in the QRTBASE features

    Dimensions (WxHxD): 460 x 63 x 120mm
    Input: 15A IEC
    Output: US, Schuko or 13A UK
    Fuse: None

    Re: Spock system (the importance of fine tuning)

    I saw on the website of the portuguese dealer. The information is probably out of date.
