I live “In the deep woods” in Sweden so I can’t send “special stuff” like a P15 away every day in the week, I can just do it on thursdays and mondays, and last thursday the “delivery company” said that they had “lack of capacity” so they couldn’t pick up my P15 last week but they would try again this thursday.
I’ve got my P15 back now, a couple of days ago, and they said that they had just changed fuse in it and after that it worked again.
I find that hard to believe since I myself changed fuse in it twice before I sent it away and both of those 2 fuses are broken now and my P15 shouldn’t blow fuses like that if it’s not something wrong with it.
I’ve not got a bill for it yet but I myself think that I shouldn’t have to pay anything for it but we will see what happens in the future considering the cost of just changing the fuse, a third time, to get it to work again.
You are absolutely correct. The P 15 should not be blowing fuses. I hope you get the unit operating properly. I can tell you before I got a power plant I had three dedicated power feeds for my system. I used one for analog only one for digital only and a 240 volt feed for my power amp. With the power plant I use one 10 gauge 30 amp feed for the power plant, switched the power amp to 120 volts and plug all my equipment in to the power plant. My system is so much more resolving and listenable. Dedicated feeds are not enough. My incoming THD level runs around 4 % with the outgoing from the P 15 being .1%, but I also believe the very low output impedance of the Powerplant weighs heavy on the system performance.
When I had my Apex plugged into my P20 I set the amp to insane mode and three minutes later the P20 went down like I’ve never seen it go before. A $267 fuse was in it. The fuse was fine, just had to reset that other protector. Whew. Fuses used to never bother me to replace, but that was before….
