RE: More on (or is that moron?) fuses

Many electronic products now use a power-on sequence control (i.e., soft start) circuit to prevent damage that might be caused by an initial power inrush, or surge. Not sure why the ceramic body fuses would be more susceptible to blowing in the absence of a soft start sequence, or what any of that has to do with sound quality, but I believe they are more often used as "audiophile" fuses (by folks like Acme and others) because of the assumed superior damping properties of the ceramic (compared to glass) body and the silica filling. If you believe something more exotic like beeswax filling would be even better, then you can purchase those at about 50 times the price of the ceramic body Bussmann fuses, or about $175 each.

The thread titled, "Synergistic Red Fuse ..." over on A'gon provides more than you may ever care to read about fuses.
