it would really suck if you had to yank out a grounding rod to 'invert' it.

so, you better be sure you have the right end driven into the ground!

Humor is always appreciated. What is even funnier (and even more appreciated) is that it is true that fuses can make a difference!

Not me, but I did order the Furus for my two Cullen DLIIIs. We'll see...

After breaking in The SR QLS9 a bit and listening to all the fuses again. I went back to the Furutech. The QLS9 was very bright and tight in the beginning. Now my rig sounds like I thought it should with the Furutech fuse. BASS is back and it smooth as ever. My next fuses are the Acme and the PS Audio, maybe the cryo'd from Cryo Parts?

got the PS Audio fuse today to replace the stock fuse in the Digital Link III. The difference is not as much as I expect. (The stock fuse is great too FWIR.) I'll give more time to let it break in.

Thinking of changing the fuse in my MAD Ear+ HD, but I wouldn't like the amp to become any brighter/darker than it already is now. Any recommendations? Furutech seems like a safe bet.

I like to have a look in here for my weekly laugh. It makes me chuckle in a similar way that metal subgenres do.

On a pseudo-serious note, do you have gold wall outlets and plugs too? And have you tried other power outlets in your house? Maybe improve soundstaging a bit or something? Each wall outlet could have a different sonic signature for different moods.

Here is not a DBT forum, is it?

If you want musical but neutral go with the Isoclean. If you want smooth go Furutech. Laidback go Hi-Fi Tuning.

They do ... depends on the gear of course, big poppa and i did back to back comparisons and we heard 3 different sound signatures from the 3 types of fuses he had for his DV 336, a furutech, hifi tuning and isoclean ...

Im using a furutech in my lisa3 external psu with nice results.

Thanks.

And I wish I didn't click on "View Reply" for some of the recent replies. They weren't worth the time.

I think some of you would have a heart attack if you saw the cabling used in your houses... but alas it's out of sight and out of mind.

My speaker cables are exactly what the old man uses to wire up downlights... 50c a meter cable if that.

I don't see how such a small change in a tiny component would make a noticeable difference. Think of the kilometres of power company wiring not to mention all the tin/lead/silver/nickel/copper/aluminium/whatever else metals are in the house circuit and the PCBs, connectors, relays and whatever else.

Don't even try. The argument's been done before. They'll find some way to shut you down. It doesn't matter what the logic or reasoning is.
The last thing we need in the cable thread is another flame war

splaz, if audio grade fuses are not your thing, Great! If you are not going to try them, fine. Please try to keep things nice for others.
