Very interesting different takes on the fuse uograde advice given by a real manufacturer.
That it has been regarded as a ploy to yet again rob the poor unsuspecting audiophile of his money is a sad statement about how so many folks who claim to be active in this hobby seem to percieve it.
You know the types, the ones who claim everything is suspect and snake oil.
But why do they care how or on what I and others spend our money?
I spend on things that make me enjoy the music more.
I wish I had more money to spend,I'd buy better amps and speakers and wires, more room tuning and power conditioners.
But I don't, and a lot of folks don't.
But the cost of an upgraded fuse isn't going to mean your kid can't get a college education or you have to take out a second mortgage.
It's something most folks can afford,and they work in my system, and for me that's just as well as getting a new amp etc.
I've been on the buy and sell merry go round for years.
It's been fun.
I learned a lot, assembled some real class A systems and now in my twilight years,I am enjoyng my latest system more than any of my previous ones, and my present system isn't anywhere near as exotic or expensive or as high end as the old ones were.
So what's the secret?
Doing things to upgrade the gear that I have, and that has mostly been investing in power products not new amps and speakers as I used to.
When you start on this road, which many are recluctant to do because of all the fear involved(danger Will Robinson,that looks like snake oil!)you realize how much we compromise the quality of our gear and never really hear how good it is.So we tire of the sound and move on to the next promise of a better tomorrow.
I wish I had some of the stuff i've sold over the years that I never really heard,because I never did anything about the power going to it.
So who cares if the fellow who invests in the new fuse takes that learning experience and applies it to other upgrades that will improve his enjoyment of his system and the music it serves?
Isn't that what this hobby is all about?
At least it was when I started out on this journey.
