Thanks for the info! I had no idea that fuses made such a difference!
To recap, the Simaudio 600i has just one fuse. Moreover, it is externally located, right next to the rear panel On/Off rocker switch. Thus, you don't have to open the chassis, in order to access the fuse. All you need is a small flathead screwdriver.
My 600i is a few years old. It utilizes a large, 32mm, fast-blow, 5.0A fuse. Current-production 600is may use a 6.0A fuse, so check the manual and the OEM fuse itself.
Off on a tangent, I'm currently reviewing Simaudio's 820S outboard power supply, which uses two fuses. I just finished reviewing its " F1 " fuse. Those are the small 20mm types, but you can get an idea, about what some of the brands/models do.
Because the Simaudio gear has enough resolution, things like fuses do have an influence. But only you should decide if those sonic changes are for better, worse, or quid pro quo.
