Hi

I realize this thread was only meant for your sale but I wonder if I could pick your (or anyone else's) mind about the proper fuse to use for a Berkeley Alpha USB. I have one and have been using the stock Littelfuse .05A provided with the unit by Berkeley. I need a spare so I have been wondering whether I should get an audiophile replacement. Did you find that using an audiophile fuse made much difference in your experience?

 

And then the manual states: "The AC power fuse used for all mains voltages is a 5 x 20mm Cartridge, .05A Time Lag (Slo-Blo) Littelfuse 0218.050MXP or 0218.050HXP."

 

I find that few audiophile fuses are available in this size. Most that I have seen go to .1A (i.e., 100 mA). Do you think that is fine to use?

 

Thanks very much

 

Hasan
