Re: Added-On Bandmaster Fuse Blows

Ray Re: Added-On Bandmaster Fuse Blows
Thanks for all your ideas. I will recheck the bias and up my fuse rating to see what happens. As I said, if I have the standby switch in the on-position while I power up (but I understand that this method could promote cathode stripping), everything is fine with a 160ma fuse. This shows that once the amp gets past the transient stage the current flowing through the fuse is less than 160ma. Hopefully, you guys' advice of going to a high rating will enable the amp to withstand the initial surge, while still provide protection during steady state.
