    Makes sense.
    The preamp I opened up is voltage convertible. Thus a 500mA fuse for 220-240 operation, or a 1A for 110-120.
    I thought that 1A fuse looked like it might be from the factory.

    In that case, I'll stick with a 1A for my Guanzo.

    I used a 1A slow blow fuse in both 6n3 tube preamps.

    Would anyone with the Nobsound passive be able to post an internal pic? Really curious to see what's all in there.

    If it opened from the top I would but it has a front and rear screw on plates. It wouldn't be easy to duplicate as the input switching is electrical instead of mechanical and that's the reason it's powered. Saw them on eBay for $49.

    This thread has now reached over one million views, 7,487 posts and in less than four years.

    It says a lot about the popularity of these good sounding and inexpensive amps.

    Or maybe we needed a lot of help figuring them out?
