Hi,
I want to remove the casing for the Cambridge Audio A1 (MK3), I can remove the back screws easily with a small flat-ended screwdriver, but the four on the sides have star nuts and are far too tightened for a screwdriver. Anyone know the size/type of torque screwdriver I need for these? It might be the same for most amplifiers, I'm just not in the know.
I basically want to check if a fuse has blown on the circuitboard/check nothing's burnt out because the power's gone.

Thanks in advance
Oliver
 
See if you can get one loose with an appropriately sized Allen wrench (hex wrench), then take the screw to a hardware store and find the driver that fits. I have a collection of Torx drivers next to me, and I use most of them. SO if there is a "standard" size, I am not aware of that. I probably use the T15 the most, but that is no guarantee in your case.

Hey, thanks for the advice. In the end I found I'd only blown the power plug fuse, so it wasn't as big a problem as I thought, and the power's back! I'll probably get an allen wrench in case they go under the roof, so this is excellent advice.
I now have a problem of finding an appropriate cartridge for my Dual CS 506-1. It says Made in Japan 524, so need to investigate...
