Does anyone have experience of different fuse manufactures..?Price per performance for example Bussmann vs Synergistic Research or any other manufacturer ...?
It would seem I would have to purchase fuses for all items connected to the Torus as well..?
Well it would be an experiment on your part.LISTENING is the key.Perhaps trying a few (like in the amplifier) first. You would need to form your OWN opinion of which fuse makes a difference.The internet is full of notions. The only way to definitively find out for yourself it to do some reading, then take the plunge with one you think, after careful consideration, is worth trying out.The LISTENING is the only way to decide if it actually is better IN YOUR SYSTEM, To YOUR EARS.
A question to all these audiophile expensive fuses custumers: This expensive fuse has worked in an eçectrical event and has protected your amp?
Agree that is the problem. Most of the boutique fuses really are not tested and rated by any authority capable of giving some assurance of the fuse behaving as required.The only hope is that the boutique fuse is close enough so the product does not destroy itself.IMO the boutique fuses are relying on the fact most designers allow some safety factor headroom in the fuse choice.(rather like a car manufacturer and aftermarket 'tunes' where the manufacturer has a safety factor to not have warranty problems, and the 'tune' maker is willing to blow up your engine)
You make a very good point, does any one have a definitive answer on the quality of protection boutique fuses have ..?Hopefully they are manufactured to a certain standard. US and UK do have sales standards if it states a certain amps surely it would not be able to be sold if it did not blow at a certain ampage ..?
THAT is exactly the problem. The boutique fuse makers are selling tiny numbers of items. I know for a certainty in the USA no one is watching.In the UK or EU, there may be someone overseeing the issue you raise. However it may take a consumer raising an issue (or not??) before anyone 'in charge' takes a look at if the fuses meet requirements.I would say ASK the fuse makers what they did to meets the fuse standard. The response you get (along with proof of meeting the specs) may or may not give you a feeling of trust in them.I do not think the dealers can give you anything but lip service about the proof the fuses meet specs and ratings.
I tried AMR fuses in my Magnepans and I did not like them. They made things sound bright. Total waste of money.
Thanks for the update, I looked up AMR Fuses are they not standard fitment for your Magnepans..?https://www.hificollective.co.uk/power_connectors/amr_audio_fuses.html
