Should the protection fuse blow on any piece of Naim equipment, make sure you get the exact same make and type - this is important. Your Naim dealer can help, or else get in touch with Steve Hopkins at the factory.
NEVER be tempted to bypass or "uprate" the equipment fuse. Doing so is extremely dangerous. Among other things, the fuse is there to protect against fire in the event of a catastrophic failure. Not only will you void any warranty but you will also put your home, your life and those of your family and possibly even neighbours at risk. Discussion of fuses is heavily moderated by Naim for the above reasons (please see forum rules).
As for which way round to fit it, Jason Gould advised as follows:
If the kite safety mark is embossed on the edge of the of the fuse's conductive cap the fuse value should point towards the bottom of the fuse holder. Should the kite mark be embossed on the very end of the fuse's cap then the fuse value should face the top of the fuse holder.
