Day 4 of the break-in period on my new Big 7, and the sound just keeps getting better......I mean really good!

Upgraded from Level 4 Gen 4.

I have used AMR (Abbingdon Music Research) gold fuses in my mono SET amps and preamp for years now....and with great success.

I dropped in an AMR fuse into my new Big 7, and even with 8 hours of break-in, they sound horrible. 

The Big 7 comes with a 1.6A fuse, and I dropped in a 2A fuse.......could that be the issue?

What fuses have other Big 7 or GG users had great success with?

Thanks for the feedback.

Try the ahp from Germany on EBay have good results with them, or if you want to go the super expensive way than the Synergistic Blue Fuses, personally I like the Hi- tuning gold and ahp fuses

Thanks for the suggestion.

I will definitely do some additional research on those fuses.

Over on the Audiogon site, folks seem to really like the SR Blue Fuses that you recommend.

I personally have not liked the sound of Synergistic Research fuses in our DACs.

A customer did send me a hifi tuning fuse to try which I was impressed by.

Other customers have reported good results with the audiomagic beeswax fuses.

Good luck on your fuse rolling. 

Best,

Fred

In what respect were you impressed by the Tuning Fuse? Was it the Supreme version or.... ?

Hi Fred,

Thanks for the advice.

I bought a HiFi Tuning Supreme, and will be happy to provide feedback.

It is certainly interesting to combine next gen fuses and digital cables, with 1940's tubes and 50 year old WE power cables.

Furutech. They're well made and UL listed.
Always keep in mind that a fuse's first job is to protect your gear. :wink:

Re: Fuses Matter - Audio Magic SHD Beewax Ultimate Fuse

I am a believer in fuses , like anything else in a good resolving audio system I had some very good German made AHP fuses in my QuickSilver -60 Monoblock amps. pretty happy with them , but a new found friend on AC offered me some Audio Magic SHD Beewax ultimate Fuses , although skeptical I decide to get them , not expecting much plus the fact it takes a break in period  125 hours .
So I took the fuses and placed them in the mono amps and the ahp fuse in the DS -2 preamp
Wooo ! :hyper: right off the bat these were magical ! amazed at not only the clarity but deepness of the sound even the slightest harshness gone ! very impressive !
