RE: power cord trick

I understand what you are saying, but the external fuse holder features tin plated brass contacts, not nickel plated magnetic steel, and won't degrade performance any greater than a typical fuse holder that all audio components must have. I'll simply be moving a fuse holder placement from one location to another rather than stepping on the performance of the Furutech FI-10 of which I already own and would prefer to use vs. the FI-03 if given a choice.

I'll put it this way: If I were given the opportunity to design an audio component from scratch, I would not implement an IEC inlet with an integral fuse holder, I would choose to use an external fuse holder like I'll do in this case. That said, if I didn't already have an orphaned FI-10 that's ready to be installed, I would be more willing to consider a new FI-03 for the application. Thanks for sharing your thinking and comprehensive ideas about the issue, bcowen!
