I recently gutted a PS Audio power extension box so I could use it as extension to the P10. And although the extension was basically power filter with relay switches, it had a fuse in it – as did the Exact Power balanced transformer that I gutted (discussed elsewhere).
The question is: is there really any harm in bypassing fuses in these types of products since every and any thing plugged into them are also fused? Note that I make an exception for the P10/P5/P3 since they are fairly complex devices.
I ask the question because in the case of the Exact Power device (basically a balanced transformer in a box), the fuse orientation (an SR20) had such a profound effect on the sound of the power amps (also fused) plugged into them, that I decided bypass the fuses altogether – I am very glad I did!!
