Looked through some of the owners manuals but didn’t find any info on fuse specs.
The values are there but you need to search sometimes:
All fuses are 5mmX20mm
All Values are in Amps and are for 120V countries
BHK Pre: 2H (Fast)
BHK 300: 2H (Fast) Rails: 10 Slow
DSD: 1T (Slow)
PST: 1.6T (Slow ) The Fast is will blow easily , taken from experience and approved by James
Stellar Phono: 1.6H (Fast)
P5: 5T (Slow)
The fuses I’m thinking of buying don’t come in a 1.6, jumps from 1 to 2. So better to stick with 1?
SMALL METRIC STYLE SILVER CRYO FUSES 5X20MM 3/4" SLOW BLOW F WITH CFC
Slow-Blow (T) .5, 1, 2, 3.15, 4, 5, 6.3, 8, 10 amp with Crystal Fiber Compound
That’s very low if you go to 1. In my PST adventure it blew the fast blow 1.6 fuse on power up. I spoke with James and I went with Slow rating and it’s holding up perfectly.
I’m just concerned about going to 2. Maybe someone from PSA can chime in and offer further guidance.
I hope nobody in a 220 to 240v country uses the above values!
I’d definitely stick with 1.6A in there. 1 is likely going to pop on boot up and 2 has the potential to let something through that could harm the unit. I always recommend sticking with what is spec’d.
Are people changing fuses for BHK Pre (clearly from above) and M1200s? I must be misreading materials that suggested against this.
I don’t hear too many people messing with the fuse in the BHK pre, but I’m sure they are. The fuses in the Stellar amps are not “user accessible” so don’t change those.
I’ve made an edit to reflect the 120V ratings
