Two wrongs don't make a right but then this is the wacky world of audiophilia where the laws of physics are suspended and, like in 'Stingray', anything can happen in the next half hour.
But remember, 3 lefts do make a right! Totally scientific.

A Gedankenexperiment: If one installs the fuse backwards and also installs one's one-way interconnect(s) backwards, is the net result silence?
Define 'silence'! Don't go to the forest and try to prove to me what happens when a tree falls...:facepalm:
Now how does that work for AC fuses?
AC, DC, LGBQTIA++: none of that matters. It should work for all the same!

Saw this Carver HR-895 in front walkway of some apartments.

It's been there over the weekend and still no takers! Perhaps because it weighs ~40 pounds.
Was Bob Carver the best (snake oil?) salesman of his era (although, he offered people what (he thought) they wanted)?
