Yep..Absolutely, the less connections the better. But at the risk of blowing up your equipment. It's for the 10/100 of the population that likes living constantly on the edge.

Fuse direction matters. The difference is usually discernable without trying to listen too hard.
When inserted the wrong way, the sound will usually be a bit flatter and softer. Imaging not as good. It can still sound OK, just not "right".
On fuses with directional arrows - you should still experiment. Unless you are a circuit designer or tech, you may not know the true direction of flow in the circuit. Some boards have been known to be marked incorrectly.
In testing marked fuses here, it's been determined that the fuse manufacturers are marking them correctly for directionality.
