I actually use my J2-esque amp for bass-amp duties as well

2. anybody got an angle on audiophool fuses?
Try using ceramic fuses instead of glass, particularly in low-current, front-end gear.
It makes a surprising difference. (Someone will undoubtably say- Yeah, because the contacts are cleaner on new fuses!)

I've tried from glass to ceramic to ACME to HI-FI Tuning Gold to HIFI-Tuning Supreme fuses.
They do make a difference. Too bad they are designed to POP!

We should not pooh-pooh those who hear differences between fuses and all sorts of strange things. It could be something behind it. Or could not.
But I believe more in well designed amplifiers and loudspeakers, and one should not forget the listening room's impact of course. What is wrong with these cannot be healed with exotic fuses, bypassing speaker terminals, turning off LEDs and so on. But maybe some of it could be the icing of the cake....?

I know the J2 has a really good bass, but the microscopic details it can do and the insane mixture of relaxedness and sparkle ....all unheard, what a pity.....

When I heard it I forgot the LEDs....

Wi impasse driving, correct. I can imagine it is a great combo. I don't doubt some tweaks help and don't doubt j2 does great bass. Just looking for some level of other info. I never cease to be amazed at the different sounds that can come from the same amp as well as different amps.
