1. From a full page ad in Stereophile:
Synergistic Research offers a wide range of replacement fuses
for $159.95. At Synergistic Research weve isolated
key factors that affect how electricity propagates by changing
the behavior of electrons through Inductive Quantum Coupling
methods we collectively call UEF Tech. In fact, UEF Tech is
so powerful even an electrical chain several miles long is fundimentally
[sic] improved with nothing more than a single fuse engineered
with our patented UEF Technology.
Years ago I used pulsed waveforms to measure
the resistance of a fuse just before blowing and found a 25%
increase in resistance. This could cause some distortion with
a speaker load. Otherwise, egregious nonsense. Stereophile Ap2020

Frequently asked questions.
Q: Are fuses directional?
A: Yes, fuses are directional. Electricity
should flow from the left to the right when you view the fuse.
If you do not know the direction of flow you should listen to
the fuse inserted in both directions. One direction will sound
more detailed. This is the correct way.
Q: Do fuses have a burn in period?
A: Yes, most products have a settling
in period. The first 200-300 hours of use are the most crucial.
