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.


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.

New High Purity Tellurium Copper with Rhodium Plating now in the house - at last.

Both sizes at the ready

Thanks - Mark 

Swiss Fuse Box. I have two of them. Best of both worlds: no fuses, and the equipment is still protected
