Anyone else using slugs instead of fuses? Comments on metals used and sound please

I recently began experimenting with slugs in place of fuses on most of my components and the results have been VERY rewarding. I'll write up a full review eventually but am awaiting possible different metal slugs in the near future.  I started with copper and the improvement from stock fuses to the copper slugs was quite noticeable but, honestly, nothing compared to the upgrade from copper to solid silver slugs from Golden State Silver and, shockingly, titanium slugs.  Can anyone comment on their DIRECT experience(s) with slugs other than copper?   I'm looking into tungsten and possibly molybdenum presently.  I'd love to try platinum or palladium but that's probably beyond my reach.  AND PLEASE, THERE'S NO NEED TO COMMENT ON HOW FOOLISH IT IS TO BYPASS THE FUSE WITH SLUGS-----WE ALREADY KNOW---YOU'VE TOLD US EXHAUSTIVELY.


rx8man:  This sounds very promising.  How does it compare to the titanium on inner detail and image placement?  And did you try pure silver?  I'm supposed to be getting the tungsten and molybdenum slugs tomorrow.  I'm going to end up with a nice big stash of sound options!  Appreciate you travelling this path as well.


Good Morning 

Our new Tellurium Copper with Rhodium Plating are clearing customs. 

These are $199 for 5 x 20mm 

The 6 x 32mm are $299

I have High Purity Copper at $10 dollars each - same for High Purity Brass 

With BF Deals we sent our High Purity Copper with Gold Immersion - these are normally 25 dollars each 

Any Sluggo order has a freight charge of 8 dollars. 

Questions - 

Many thanks



In my rig (Coin Silver) sounds better than the Titanium, midrange (vocals) are more present, much better conductivity without too much over the top brightness (hence the 10% Copper content)

Went down the middle between full Copper and full Silver, perfect balance to me.

@rx8man 🤔 What do you think about 925 Sterling?  92.5% vs your coin silver 90% silver/copper.  5mm x100mm at $40 for 5 fuses.  Ughhh will it end! I do like both the 100% Silver and the Gold immersion slug that came with the SFB. Subtle different flavors.  This is turning into another tube like obsession….

tkstein: Already gave that thought after using solid copper for many years.

Next ’thought’ is wiring transformer wires straight to way better quality IEC inlet and skip in between crap with cheap clip metals, voltage conversion circuit board traces etc....

All gear is plugged into an Inakustik with built-in breaker.
