Synergistic Research | Purple Fuses | 5x20 & 6.3x32 mm

Product Review (submitted on December 3, 2021):
Recently, I upgraded from SR Orange to SR Purple in my amplifiers (Classé CP-700 en CA-2300). The Purple is not a somewhat better Orange: it is distinctly different. The Orange yields an easy-going, warm-musical sound; the Purple is more about dynamics and precision. The noisefloor is even lower relative to the Orange; the sound becomes very clean indeed. Fast passages in a piece of music sound effortless. Far more musical relevant information can be heard. In short, the Purple is in a different league. However, the Purple is not for those intending to “soften” their sound somewhat. The Purple needs quite long breaking in; at first, the sound may appear somewhat "over the top" and slightly edgy. This will disappear completely. Orientation of the fuse is important: turn it around and you will know the correct one.
