RE: audiophile circuit breakers for use in US?

I have used the Audiophile Klangmodul in Germany in our house. This was a great breaker for audio use. It made a positive difference. Also, you can swap out fuses between good, silver, or rhodium easily. They are called sicherung in Germany, the fuse modules for the circuit breaker. I have not seen any equivalents in the U.S.

Although, Environment Potentials make an EP-2050 sold by VHAudio.com. This device is a waveform and line filter which attaches to the electrical panel. It reduces RFI. It is not the same as the fuse breaker you are looking for, but, it is an alternative to clean noiseless power which would provide a nice and quiet background during music playback.

The EP-2050 is the BEST solution I've found to help protect your audio equipment, as well as isolate your system from other AC line noise-generators inside your home - where MOST of the AC line noise is generated. Unlike other products on the market that shunt energy to the neutral or ground, the EP-2050 uses patented technology to dissipate much of this energy as HEAT, and operates in a parallel with your AC line, resulting in unrestricted, cleaner juice. There is no getting around using an MOV for the big whomps of juice, but MOV's degrade over time. What's special about the EP-2050 is the MOV stays behind 'the curtain', as the pedestrian nasties get zapped and converted to heat by EP's patented technology. Installs at your breaker panel, by a qualified electrician, in a little over an hour. Now available in BOTH 117V (U.S.) as well as 240V (International) versions!

The Environmental Potentials EP-2750 Ground filter is inserted in series between your circuit's safety ground, and the ground bus on your breaker panel. The EP-2750 provides further isolation of your dedicated stereo or HT circuits from the rest of your home, and may be used with any worldwide voltage, in a residential application.

Here is an example of a typical installation of these devices in one obsessed audiophile's
