What you said.

In @Dynasty62 's case it sounds like the fuse just jarred loose, but if the unit took a hard enough hit to dislodge the fuse, I'd wonder what else in there (like transformers) got jarred loose at the same time.
I am hoping you will explain how replacing fuses and cleaning the contacts have a big effect on SQ. If you do PM me so I can get the popcorn ready. :ksc75smile:

Fuses are so 1990's. Ninety-nine-9's pure copper rod is the way to go. But only after cryo-treating, which I'll assume is stating the obvious. :smile:

"You simply remove the stock fuses and jumpers and replace them with our replacements. Our jumpers are cryo treated 10AWG Silver plated copper in PTFE dielectric. Our fuse replacements are hand polished 99.97% pure solid silver hollow tube."

Don't forget the mains cable.:dt880smile:

Something like this, at £2,549 in UK ( a mere $3,500), is essential if you want to realise the full potential of your system :wink:

"Something like this" and its ilk, often reminds me of this little gem. Suspect there's much the same motivation behind it all -- on everyone's part...

Yes, and there are no lack of "I Am Richer" products -- not to mention exotic body treatments -- out there.

I wonder if your pet's happiness would be improved buy the use of an Audioquest power cable. I'm sure the cable would provide as much improvement in the rock's quality of life as it does to the audio gear it's used with.

Never liked the Magnepan fuses. They seem so, idk, cheap ass.
