"It has been shown that witnesses to staged crime scenes are notoriously unreliable. And the validity of subjective reviews of aural phenomena are equally suspect!"
Nice analogy except the witnesses to the staged crime were at least "there". In the case of most premium fuse deniers, they are not (other than wolf) even trying them.
IME premium fuses make a very audible difference. If you don't hear an improvement, so be it, at least you actually tried it. You did try it, right?
In regard to safety, with my components there is more chance of getting a static poke when changing a fuse than getting actually shocked during the process.
I do hope Audiogon will remove posts that resort to disrespect to other members. But I seriously hope that all posts remain on this thread that are written in a respectful manner , regardless of their agreeing or disagreeing with my observations . I see no reason to allow mob rule to shout down serious discussion about any audio topic. I also welcome suggestions in improving my test approach.
Tomorrow - Friday, the Pass Lab SIT-3 amplifier is scheduled to be delivered. Pass only made 250 of these units because the SIT transistor used is long out of production. Nelson is the sole designer of this unit and the F-7. I look forward to comparing this unique type of topology amp to the First Watt-7, and then to investigate any differences fuses and fuse direction makes.

Now that is just a perfect example of a closed mindset.
I truly do not see what he has to gain by even posting on these types of threads as he has no interest in the betterment of audio enjoyment by said tweaks.
It grieves me to see such discord between fellow audio enthusiasts tbh.

For your YELLING posting info, no I’ve never tried it, and no need to, but at my friends place for a day session with three others where he tried an SR Blue 3.15A fuse in his Gryphon Diablo 300, the fuse was taken in and out 3 x, even turned around once, not one out of the 5 of us could tell what was in compared to the original 3A, the owner "thought" he detected something on one of the occasions, but couldn’t be sure.
