Need to replace fuse in my denifrips ARES II. Was wondering if a ceramic fuse is okay to use and if it is a better choice? I know the ceramic can withstand higher Heat. Any help will be appreciated
I suggest choosing a fuse with exact same rated power and type (“speed”) as original. Ceramic is ok as well - the difference between “transparent” and ceramic is that ceramics are filled with a powder to help extinguish the electric arc faster, that is it.
Don’t buy any audiophilic fuses (as for example gustards for freaking 50$), those are one of the biggest ripoffs in audio and it is disgusting honestly that they do things like that
Pff, the amount of these sort of product… insane.
I mean, these manufacturers genuinely take advantage of their customers. Usually, these products are not “that” expensive, hence why many people purchase them. The average buyer of such a product “it’s 50 bucks, I don’t have anything to lose”. But if you actually knew how much $$$ these manufacturers are making just from these “inexpensive” snake oils, you’d shit yourself =)
Thank you for your help I wound up purchasing the ceramic, they were a couple of bucks more. Plus next day delivery!! Who in their right mind would spend $50 on a fuse LOL it’s a shame companies have to do that,take advantage of people… disgusting!
That’s the tip of the iceberg. Wait till you hear how many thousands of dollars companies charge for snake oil. The most frequent ones are >$500, but you even have >$10,000 ones. Yes, disgusting.
But then you remember some people have too much money. Drugs or snake oil? Or both
