Nano-Flo Part 3: Fuses & Signal Level Treatments

So far on my Nano-Flo journey, I have treated the power cord and connectors to my source component, and tested a single Nano-Flo power cord in part 1. Treated the rest of my component power connections and cords in part 2. This post will cover treating fuses and signal connections in my system.

Treating Fuses

I started with treating the Black/Red QSA fuse on my Farad power supply for my QSA Crystal Gold network switch. This had a very significant impact on the overall life and body that the streamed recordings flowed through on their way to my streamer and DAC. I actually conducted a very interesting 2nd test by removing the QSA fuse and putting the Nano-Flo treated stock fuse back into the Farad. I could not tell much difference, and it really had me thinking that perhaps just treating stock fuses would be more practical than buying expensive QSA fuses. Unfortunately the same experiment on my other components did not yield the same conclusions. In every other case, the Nano-Flo treated QSA fuse sounded best.

Overall, the results were slightly less significant than treating the power cords and connectors. I cannot say that if I would have treated the fuses BEFORE all of the power connectors I would have come to the same conclusion however. But it is safe to conclude that treating power cords, power connectors AND fuses is a very worthwhile system upgrade that surpasses spending thousands more on a new component.

Conclusion: Definitelly worthwhile

Adding Nano Flow to RCA, speaker and XLR

This to me was the least impactful implementation of the Nano-Flo. Perhaps it was because I had done all of the other treatments first. I don't know, but to my ears this produced very little improvement. Oh and by the way, do not treat ethernet connectors and connections with Nano-Flo. It will impede bandwidth. I suspect because the voltages are so low, and the connection surface area so small that the non conductive Nano-Flo did more harm than good in this case.

Conclusions: Meh, but your mileage may vary.

Tube Pins

 This was another win. Very recommended. My Audio Hungary tube integrated and my Modwright LS-99 greatly benefited from having the tube pins Nano-Flo'd. The usual Nano-Flo superlatives apply: Increased soundstage, dynamics, and energy.

Conclusion: Definitely worthwhile

Final Conclusions

Overall, this Nano-Flo session supports my hypothesis that it works best on higher voltages. There doesn't seem to be a point where sonically it becomes a detriment. The worst I have experienced so far is that it has very little if any effect on my speaker and interconnect level connections. But again that could be because the other treatments implemented before simply masked their level of significance. 

My next Nano-Flo Writing will most likely be on the power cords. I now have 5 of them. Enough to power the entire system. :)
