Does the VPI 299D utilize an internal fuse?

Postby jcharvet » Mon Feb 19, 2018 10:14 pm

Hi Harry, I'm a proud owner of a VPI 299D. I looked in the manual, but I don't see any reference to the unit having any sort of fuses for protection. Is there a replaceable fuse I don't know about? If so, how does one access it, and what value of fuse is used? If there is no fuse, is this likely because the tube rectifier negates the need for it? I'm interested to understand the thinking behind the design here.

Thanks,
Juan

Hi,

I saw this post yesterday and sent an email to that amplifiers codesigner, Steve Leung from VAS (I don’t think he posts here). He responded this AM:

“The fuse is local in the back. The AC Power Cord input.”

His number is 732-705-3828 if you need more help.

Thank you Drew, appreciate the help. I'll be coming back on the forum now that the baby is borne and it appears BRF is no longer answering questions. He spoiled us.
