About three months back I got a Pair of Tube monos from another brand and my Odyssey Kismet in Stratos lay idle , I had ordered some German made 6.3Amp/250 V fuses which were available on EBay for a very reasonable price ! which came in today so I opened up the top of my amp. and took the fuses out. Guess what ! 2 of the four fuses inside were blown !
Question ? why was I still able to play both channels except I noticed that I lost Bass and their was a constant hiss( not audible beyond 12-15 inches from the speakers ) which I blamed on my high efficiency new speakers
Once I placed the new fuses back inside and turned the system on OMG! ! it sounded like another piece of gear ! not only did the Bass come back but using it direct with the PS Audio Directstream DAC the Odyssey amp was in another world ! and I fell in love with the amp again !
OK the fuses make a difference ? but if two of the four internal fuses were blown why was I still getting sound(signal) from both the right and the left channel ?
