In my more than 20 years of experimenting in this hobby, everything in the path of the audio signal matters. From your electrical box to your ears.It really makes quite a difference. Go on... 256Gb WT i300 Micron is calling for you....
Cables (all of them, power beeing the most ovious), anti-vibration tweaks, aftermarket fuses, etc. makes a difference to different degree.
I know that it's hard to justify yourself to spend 150$ on a small, invisible non sexy fuse (or micro sd card for the matter), but when you get past over this and you are willing to experiment, you invariably come to the conclusion that the 150$ price paid is at the end a really cheap tweak to improve the performance of your expensive system.
For that reason, I ordered a Micron i-300 512gb and I'm pretty confident that it will improve the performance of my 3MAX. If so, the card is 10% of the cost of the MAX. Even a more conventional will be 5%. So better performance for 5% of the cost of the unit? Count me in. Everytime!
I always find it a bit sad when people are spending thousands on system but are using generic cables and no attention towards vibrations and room treatments. They end up not hearing the full potential of their expensive gears. Not even close.
Of course that was simply IMHO.
