I just purchased a secondhand Mcintosh MC300, which worked perfectly when I first set it up last week, with the exception of the meter lamps. I disassembled my system to pull the light boards out to take to the dealer, but when I put the light boards back in and plugged in my receiver (which I'm using as a pre pro), I somehow blew the fuse in the Mcintosh.
The amp takes a 10 amp fuse, but the only thing I could find on Sunday that fit was a 5 amp fuse, which the amplifier promptly blew as soon as I turned it on (lights/power guard turned on momentarily, then went dark). Was that supposed to happen? If I get a proper 10 amp fuse, will the amplifier work?
Thanks in advance!
