No apology needed.

If I want to be offended, I can just turn on Fox News.
I thought it was pertinent to mention that the other persons present when the incident took place were audio smarties, technically more knowledgeable and certainly more widely experienced than I. (One of them was the actual designer and builder of the passive preamplifier we were listening to.) That was to lend credence to the story. Yet there was no dispute among us; all 4 or 5 of us heard the fuse effect exactly the same way. Even to the point that we all agreed on WHY the sound of the boutique fuse was not as good as that of the hardware store fuse. Further, I think the fact that we ABA'd the two fuses is also supportive of the conclusion that "something" was going on. Albeit, the test was not blinded, which would have been better.

My a priori bias was that the fuse could not possibly make a difference, since it was not in any way in the signal path or even subserving the signal path. Others felt the same. (I guess by now I have repeated myself here.)
