Nice work, Peter but I don't see any fuses? 48 VA transformer without fuses? Isn't that a bit dangerous and unsafe?

Do you really think I would made a commercial DAC without a fuse? Look closely and you'll see one

If you dont have these certified buy a company that does CSA yor going to be sued up the but. Id suggest before selling these or putting them on your site you might want to get these aproved. Or put a note on the site these are only for diy and owner must take there own risk.

I know a guy that just had his products tested and failed and was sued. Due to a house fire. I'd Hate to see you be sued over this. : O )

I dont think soldering a fuse to the board like that is a good idea. : O )

Reason 's

1 You get the can of the fuse to hot the wire inside will come unsoldered.

2 Hard to change a blown fuse

3 Just not Pratical ..

when i get my board..mine will be external.

Are you saying your design's are perfect and will never fail or hiccup ? I have had lots of things that needed fuses that shold have never blown. Ie a mouse on a computer or a keyboard or my remote for my tv ect ect lots of things they all blow at some point. unplugging something then pluging it back in causes a serge it might blow the fuse ect ect there are lots of reason's..

I think it would be wise for me any way or others to solder a fuse off the board and in some kinda of holder : O )

Hi,
your fuse implementation doesn't look safe and practical.
Why not use an insulated version (with optional two pin socket)?

Regards,
Milan
