I think you're the one causing me confusion in this case.............................
True, psaudio and electrical engineering don't mix very well.

Unless you educate us sir?   What's your point?   You are not contributing anything but razzing from the sidelines...  I am not here to promote another brand of audio,  but you keep pushing in that direction.   I suggest you find some other thread to fill in with your very helpful tips to replace the pseudo helps.

Learn to be helpful.

Not interested in that.   I listen with an ST10.   Its the AC IEC input fuses that are easy to change and make a nice difference if your system allows for it to be heard.  That's all.   If I had an amp with a power output fuse I would concentrate on that.  I once had a vintage amp set up that way.  Its a shame that this issue was not understood at that time.
I own and ST10 as well.
did you  change the fuse? which one have you tested?
i replaced a lot of fuses in the past. i am not sure i have ever heard a difference ....
now i just invert the phase sometimes.....

I have tried several fuses.  Not all were expensive.  Each one caused a change in what I heard.  And, all sounded different according the direction they were placed in the holder.  One way does sound right. The other in comparison does not.

Bussman ceramic I believe cost me about 75 cents.  The next one up is the Schurter Audio fuse. I think that cost me only a few bucks.  I am presently using a Hi-Fi Supreme Tuning fuse.  Its lends itself to a fuller, yet detailed sound.  Again, if I were listening with different interconnects,  power cords,  etc... I am not sure how much of a difference I would be hearing.   The speakers I use (and some others I have had) allow me to hear plainly differences.  FWIW...

 I believe not everyone has a system set up that will allow for differences to be easily heard.  I believe that is why some folks mock the idea.
