Hi Rob

Yes BNC is a COAX design and it does offer a very secure connection as well as a true 75 ohm connection which is desirable for digital transmission.

Alas, many DAC and transport/player designs do not offer BNC connections so you have to use an adaptor.

I am revisiting my post as I finally got to that fuse upgrade. I will install a Synergistic Research Orange 1A slo-blo in socket F201, with the "R" of the SR logo in direction of the front of the panel. For my amplifier, I went with fuses one notch above the rated values because the SR fuses seems to blow more easily. But for a DAC, especially my beloved BDA-3, I prefer to stick to rated value. I don't know what will be the actual benefits from that fuse upgrade, neither the order of magnitude so stay tuned as I will report later. For the meantime, I will let my system settle in as I made 3 recent upgrades in the last two weeks so I wish to get used to the sound before I jump on another upgrade.

It's installed! Currently breaking in the fuse (read: listening music ) so I will report some time later in a separate thread.

Serge-

Look forward to your impressions. As an aside, received an email from VHAudio and they are offering a 3 for 2 Orange sale during the month of August.

Initial impressions are positives but I was expecting greater improvements. It's not as impressive as it was when I inserted the Blue fuses in my amplifier for example.

3 for 2.. Humm, now that's interesting..

I understand that the Orange fuses take a little while longer to ‘settle’ after installation.

Placebo? I have to believe that for the cost of the fuse, if it actually made a difference, Bryston would have included it and raised the price as its all about the sonics.
