P20 - anyone planning to test the new SR purple fuse against their Ultimate Premier in a P15 or P20?

Hi Dave, yes I did, previously I tried an orange one in my P20 and was never really happy with it, main problem iirc was treble sounded clipped and harsh, after a month I switched back to standard gold p20 fuse and joy! Extended treble again.

Purple is a bit like that still, but it has much thicker, smoother bass sound, not more punchy bass though unfortunately.

I think it’s a keeper

Both Orange and Purple have the clean and detailed treble sound, but the purple improves on mid-range and the treble is less harsh (after two weeks living with 2 purples). I felt Beewax Ultimate has a warmer treble and a more holographic soundstage than both, but it lacks the resolutions of Purple.

I am currently using both Purple and Ultimate and felt that combination gives me a particularly good balance.

Well after being the first to put a Purple fuse in my P20 and trying the AM Beeswax Ultimate Premier from my P20 in my LPS supplies. I put it back in my P20. I first Play BB King at Cook County Jail.

The Beeswax definitely has more mid bass. The wind on the microphone at start of song more distracting getting into mid bass. The tone and timbre of Lucille was spot on between fuses as was BB’s vocals. The inmates clapping sounded more hollow. The strange thing running the fuse in my big r-core router LPS was very close to having it in P20. So again. Digital bits are not just bits.

I put the SR Purple back and was my over all preferred P20 fuse. The wind in mike less pronounced the inmates clapping more live. The mid bass less but defined. One needs more preamp gain to get mid bass up on the purple.

Mind this BB’s voice and guitar great both fuses. And power and HDMI cables were AQ Dragons.

So I stayed with the Purple. Then mailed my Ultimate Premier to a less fortunate audiophile who only thinks hugely expensive cables matter and refuses to buy a fuse. Maybe one of you folks know this guy? We can only hope he becomes hopeless like us fuse tweakers.
