The arrogance of some people is also surprising. I dropped out of EE because the professor thought everything was explained by their laws. Instead I went into physics where they knew that they knew so little.

Ah Norm, I've heard plenty of physicists do the same thing, it's just argot. I doubt that anyone really believes that before Ohm layed down the law that them thar electrons would jump around like fleas at a dog show, but he straightened 'em out by gum...
You have done an excellent job of explaining the difference in mindset between a scientist and an engineer.

Today I had the opportunity to compare the Synergistic Research fuse to a Furotech fuse in my Marantz SA11-S2 (SA-CD) player. The SR fuse brought out additional detail- better imaging, more timbre to the instruments, and more emotion to the music. I did not notice a difference in direction when installing the Synergistic fuse or the Furotech fuse. The Synergistic Research fuse simply allowed the music to sound better immediately upon installation. I think this is a very cost effective upgrade to amps and CD players.
In summary- Synergistic Research> Furotech> Isoclean> Stock Fuse.
I do think some fuses show direction more than others. Of course, I don't think anything we know about parts and circuits tells us why fuse direction has an impact. All I really know is that I have to check all fuses to see if their direction is right. I must say that on review components, I assume the manufacturer puts the fuse in the proper way or doesn't think it matters.
but hey, it's your money.
why not simply replace the fuse with some of your favorite UP-OCC wire?
wouldn't that be a surefire way to sonic bliss?
perhaps some crystals placed on various equipment.
If you think a fuse having direction means it is a diode, I rest my case.
The moderators feel that allowing this thread to continue, even though it may hold useful information, will wind up creating more trouble than it solves, and thereby detract from the purpose of this forum.
This is not the appropriate venue for discussion of this matter, and we ask that those with an interest in the subject, take it elsewhere (e.g. private e-mail).
No further follow-ups will be considered.
