I think what it all comes down to is what you want to do and what you believe in. Dood! if you want to try them fuses go for it. If you don't think they did the job then a you learned something or b it did improve something and your happy. either way it's your money do what you wish and learn all you can

Remember that the purpose of your power supply filter is to filter out any perturbations from the supply, and if you can still hear anything, then your filter is not doing it's job properly.

Silver dollars of course. "Oh, Mr. Curl! That was COLD!"

Are we talking about power line fuses or signal line (output) fuses? If the latter, inside or outside the feedback loop? If it's signal fuses outside the feedback loop, even a hard core rationalist like me can see why some could sound better than others.

Hi SY,
I was about to make that point. Had the words ready to flow out ......... and you stole my thunder dude!

I have to say, that with a design that is very sensitive to it's supply, these fuses may sound good. Example: a Counterpoint or related product

I think that if the power supply section has been designed well and is doing it's job, only an arcing line connection may be audible.

Output (outside feedback loop, or low feedback) or speaker fuses. Absolutely audible.

You are very foolish Poobah to criticise without trying first. I don't care one way or another.
That's about as close as you can get to just calling me a fool. All this pontification is simply good free (sort of) advertising...

In many cases, I simply don't have the luxury of being able to test something before I design it. Try breadboarding a 100 kW invertor. You don't cob these things together with clip leads, silver or otherwise, and accomplish anything. It's all done with the math... perhaps a foreign art to fuse rollers.

Eva, as always, makes a point or two. In general, you will find that giving alot of women one dollar doesn't work nearly as well as giving one woman alot of dollars. You can test this... you'll need a woman though.

It's the "old boy" school of cameraderie.

It is used to avoid conversations of any emotional meaning. God forbid..

Or, take a "name" out clubbing, show em a good time, and they'll hawk your wares for them.
