HiFi-Tuning, of Berlin, Germany, has released a new higher performing version of their industry-leading fuses called "Supreme."
The new line of Supreme fuses is made, tip-to-tip of 99% Silver impregnated with 1% Gold, similar to the material used in the Mundorf Supreme Silver/Gold Capacitors.
Mundorf also developed a special Copper/Silver/Gold solder for use in the Supreme fuses called MSolder SUPREME. Due to its remarkable conductivity, this Mundorf-manufactured solder is second to none.
HiFi-Tuning's 99% Silver + 1% Gold melt wire used exclusively in the Supreme fuses is resonance-optimized, and the fuses are housed in a black ceramic case, which is also optimized to control vibration.
To understand the advantage of the 99% Silver + 1% Gold combination, think about silver's crystalline structure. The drawing process for silver (or copper) wire causes micro cracks in the surface of the wire. The cooling process also results in imperfect crystal grid structures. Both of these "deformities," relative to the ideal of a perfect conductor, result in surface distortion when current flows through the wire. The addition of 24K gold fills the micro cracks and the empty spaces between the crystal boundaries to improve transmission properties, while also inhibiting the surface oxidation and tarnishing that will occur over time otherwise.
These custom, precious metal fuses are also cryogenically treated using Europe's only cryo system from Cryogenics International. Finally, the Supreme fuses are treated with a proprietary quantum level process.
The new Supreme fuses answer a frequently asked question about which is better: Original Gold-plated or SilverStar. The new HiFi-Tuning Supreme is the best fuse in the world.
