This is one of those tracks with surround sound like effects in the mix, when the crowd starts cheering, their cheers fill up the entire room. The music from the main guitar (classical guitar?) in the center is very focused and there is a certain physical precision to it. The supporting guitar is more to the left, and located further behind. The timbre between the two guitars are different is more distinct now compared to before. All the instruments are pretty well defined and clearer. There is a physical realness to these two guitars, completely making the speakers (and eletronics) disappear. There is only music and nothing else.
As the performance end, people begin to talk again, and here the sound effects expanded vertically more than before. There is a lot more height now.

This is another interesting special effects track. The alarms/buzzers at the beginning of the track will almost fool you into thinking they exist physically inside your room.
The start of this track gave me the impression people are waking up from sleep, and it’s going to be a busy work day. As they are about to go about their daily grind (some people are probably already late given the alarms of their watches has gone off), there is this guy playing the Saxaphone (imagine this is happening in a train station and the guy is bustling early in the morning?)
Everything about the daily grind stopped as the bustler starts playing, the sexy saxaphone transports everybody into a completely new world, away from the modern world. The saxaphone is very intimate, powerful and the notes fill up the entire room. Pay extra attention to the echos made by this saxaphone.
And from these two tracks, I reckon:
- Better surround sound effect, especially no tracks where the speakers completely disappar and there are no imaging “holes” anywhere
- A lot more image height
- Makes you believe the playing elements are actually present inside your listening room
- It’s easier to listen for “the recording space”

Totally agreed with your review. Having installed and lived with two small Furutech fuses for 24 hours (obviously not burned in yet), I’ve found them to possess those characteristics that you described.
I’ve seen more expensive fuses advertised else where, so I think these Furutech are pretty cost effective especially for what they do to our gear. Thanks for the good work.

As i changed the amp and dac inlets to furutech Fi-09 and sow a justification for the investment/84€ each; will look ahead for the fuse. Thanks for the in-depth review.
