    Nice find, @YMO who could have imagined?
    Still waiting for that rando or other to explain the physics involved with their claim. Not just, I tried this and it works.
    I suppose fuses are related to cleaning up the power from the wall but just how do the simple fuses come into play?
    Explain please, a research paper perhaps, Hypothesis, theory, theorem?
    I'd be happy to know just why ceramic fuses were invented in the first place. What problems do they solve?
    Making a claim without educating just leaves you ripe for the plucking.

    Lots of things to worry about in the world. "Fuse nervosa" will never be one of them.

    There was no need to ban the guy: he'll blow himself up, or elecrocute himself, by the end of next week. :Violin:
    I would. But then, I'm a Brit. Balls! Meat balls.

    If a ceramic fuse physically breaks or otherwise fails spectacularly, you don't get glass everywhere. I think that's pretty much it.

    A quick Google tells me that ceramic fuses also better at arresting higher currents during failure events, termed 'breaking capacity': https://forum.digikey.com/t/glass-vs-ceramic-fuses-whats-the-difference/8475

    Strangely, there is no mention of revolutionary changes in sound quality of HiFi amplifiers.

    Oh my oh my…
    I am starting to drool, faggots with potatoes ( mind the pronouncation) and mushy peas with lots of gravy. Among my favourite British pub grub. A fine ale to go with it and I am all set.

    That is one way to make and exit.

    If you can afford to have the thing blow up and you don't care, just bypass the damn fuse and get it over with. I made my DIY Dynalo amp with no fuse whatsoever. I just never leave it on when you are not around lest burn down my place. Most fuses are there to protect the equipment from catastrophic failure anyway..and sparks and fire. Most stuff nowadays are with flame retardant components anyway - although the case still may get super hot and cause other stuff to burn.

    My guess is that the silicon (primary ingredient in ceramics) is resisting heat from a small wire carrying all that current through one small wire. So more available current? These are what good filtering caps are for anyways.

    My guess is that ceramic may let the smoke out, but could be better than glass at keeping the flame in.

    I am a f'ing moron. Had too many tabs open and inadvertently posted my first intro post in the wrong forum & thread. God damn... hunkering down for likely incoming which I rightly deserve.

    As long as you don't act like the nugget in this thread, you'll be fine.
