    Just about annually I clean metal contacts on my components. This includes pulling out the fuse and cleaning the holder and fuse. After putting things back in place I’ve heard subtle improvements, but nowhere close to the magnitude of improvements I’ve heard from upgrading to a better fuse..

    I see your point though about not cleaning the former fuse first just to arrive at closer to apples-to-apples, but had that ever impressed me as worthwhile I would have done so,

    VH Audio are running another 3 for the price of 2 offer on SR fuses. Not sure if this means the SR Blue is about to be superseded........
