  1. Good point. But based on a lot of people's observations, something in the AC field is directional. I haven't actually tried reversing fuses yet myself to see if I can hear a difference.
  2. I have four Orange fuses in my system, all placed with the lettering in the direction of the current. Based on your comment, I will try the other direction now also. Thanks. I don't currently have Orange fuses on my two SR4s -- I am using Hifi Turning Supreme Cu fuses there. I figured they are warmer sounding ,what with the copper and all. The SR4s in my system lean a bit to the neutral/cool side, so warm power cords and fuses help to balance that out. But I haven't tried an Orange fuse on an SR4 yet, and do plan to do that. I have one in my preamp that I can try in the SR4.
  3. The current runs from the top of the SR4 fuse holder to the bottom. So you want the direction of the letters on the Orange fuse to go from the top of unit to the bottom.
  4. Barrow, nice post. I think the bottom line here for users of the opticalModule is to get a really really good power supply for it. And maybe a good power cable and even an audiophile fuse if you are so inclined. I would think the Sonore PSU would be an excellent choice since Barrows optimized and tuned it for the Sonore products.
  5. Barrows, keep in mind that I can clearly hear the basic characteristics of each power cord through a digital optical link. TRIPPY!!!
  6. Paul Hynes Design SR4. See the link in my signature for full system information.
  7. I've been playing with different power cords on my opticalModule power supply. It is really trippy that I can clearly hear the signature of each power cord. What is the physics mechanism for THAT? P.S. Love my opticalModule into an opticalRendu
  8. The video market for the EtherREGEN is potentially bigger than the audiophile market!
  9. I have a good recent experience with Paul Hynes Design. I ordered an SR4 on August 6th. It arrived last week per the original schedule. Communication with Mark was excellent, the PSU sounds excellent, build quality is excellent, 'nuf said.
  10. Indeed. So there are two different trade initiatives here. The first is to block imports from firms using child labor or forced labor, either in China or elsewhere. The second initiative is a blacklist of certain Chinese high tech firms so that U.S. companies cannot do business with them without government approval.
  11. SuperDad, The baby pajamas are being made by Uighurs in concentration camps. That was in the first article I posted. The face recognition, etc. technologies are being used to oppress large populations. That was in the second article that Rickca posted. That is what Ross was referring to in his comment, technologies of oppression. China decoupling continues...
  12. Good article, thanks for posting. Ross said Monday’s action will ensure U.S. technologies “are not used to repress defenseless minority populations.”
  13. And here comes some help for the Uighurs! https://www.nbcnews.com/news/world/company-making-costco-baby-pajamas-flagged-forced-labor-n1063626
  14. Not so. Trade negotiator Peter Navarro frequently talks about China's "Seven Deadly Sins". These are things that China must stop before the ongoing trade war can end. From a recent Hill.com article -- Navarro said: “Stop stealing our intellectual property, stop forcing technology transfers, stop hacking our computers, stop dumping into our markets and putting our companies out of business, stop state-owned enterprises from heavy subsidies, stop the [importation of] fentanyl [and] stop the currency manipulation,” Navarro told host Chris Wallace on "Fox News Sunday." Now there are plenty of abuses within China going on too -- Like the sad plight of the Uighurs, to name just one. In my opinion this by itself is reason enough to curtail Chinese trade. But I think it makes sense for the administration to concentrate on ways China is screwing us. Fentanyl, for instance - is it a weapon of mass destruction that China is foisting on Americans? The Trump administration knows full well that moving production away from China is a good thing apart from whether a trade deal ever occurs, and spends a great deal of energy on it. Many of the President's tweets address this very issue -- the latest being a tweet mentioning Apple moving some production to Texas. The fantastic thing now is that the president has made production in China very uncool. Can you imagine a CEO saying proudly now that they are moving production to.... China. 😉
  15. I upgraded my downstream FMC from the TP-Link MC220L to a Sonore opticalModule a few weeks ago. I can report it works great with my multichannel system. I really like the modular upgradability of systemOptique.
