First of all, I greet everyone who writes so cheerfully here! I just signed up. I am a long-time PS audio fan who started with the P500, meanwhile had a PS-Audio GCPH (the first with a remote control! Even before it was in series). and P5 owner for 8 years. Now comes the reason why I logged into the PS-Audio Hot-Spot:
Last night I was sitting on the couch and suddenly the light went out … KLACCKKK! The fuse from the circuit where the light and the stereo system ran over it had gone out (one gigawatt G-C20A). The entire stereo was on, but no music was playing. After checking everything I found no mistake. I then put the P5 on the table and checked it. The fuse had blown. A new one is quickly inserted and switched on with no devices connected. Immediately the fuse blown again. The P5 wasn’t hot (it never gets, just a little warm), nothing smells burnt. Then I took off the lid and checked everything visually. There is absolutely nothing to be seen that suggests a short circuit or the like. The capacitors all look ok too. Then I switched on all amplifiers etc. of the stereo system individually via an extended power cable to see whether a device was defective. All amplifiers fine.
What do the experts say, has something like this happened before, and where could the mistake be?
High fidelity greetings, Geramond
