I think I just smoked my Amp
@atmasphere  You sir, are a gentleman and a scholar! You totally nailed it, replacing the fuse got it back up and running. Feeling a little sheepish that I didn’t figure that one out on my own. I replaced the fuse with an mdq-8, as indicated by ... 
Warming up digital in my setup
I would definitely start with upgrading your source. I started out feeding my dac with an iPhone, and it was terrible. I bought an Auralic Aries, and it was a night and day difference. My streaming (Tidal masters) SQ now beats the pants off red b...

Well this is interesting… in the schematic, it calls for a Bussman MDQ-8 fuse, but what I found in the amp was an MDA-8. Is this a problem?

@johnread57  Thanks for the offer; it’s awesome that you’ve got a tech that could work on your d240. If I need to my amp serviced, I’m hoping to be able to get that done locally. Not only would shipping an amp of this size be extremely expensive,...

Well, nothing amiss with these speakers. My CODA amp is driving them fine. Too bad it’s such a lousy match for my pre.

Well I managed to locate two fuses the first, in the obvious place next to the power cable was one of these: https://www.amazon.com/Bussmann-Ceramic-Fuse-MDA-8-94F2246/dp/B00HJVHEC0 Due to the opaque nature of the cylinder, I can’t see whe...

Thanks to everyone who took the time to respond. The status of my D400 remains unchanged. Visual inspection didn’t reveal any possibility of shorted speaker cables. I spent most of the day driving to retrieve my CODA amplifier from storage; maybe... 
B.S. Node 2i brick (yet another one)
@2psyop  Well done, sir! It’s nice coming across instances of persons genuinely supporting one another around a shared passion. Seems like the world could use a lot more of that lately. Again, well done.

I’d always heard that their prices are outrageous, but I just ordered a pair of Thiel MCS1 from them, and the price, including shipping, was lower than several other pairs I’ve seen for sale in worse cosmetic shape, for sale by sellers who were un... 
Help me spend $6000
@jeffseight My take on it was that you guys did something that was of value to the audio community, and that it must have been as fun as it was informative. Additionally, I didn’t find the minor criticisms of methodology and cabling to temper th...

@jeffseight  sorry for the hijack, but is your club the one that did that infamous DAC shootout?   
Noisy Right Channel
Thanks guys… I popped the case open and swapped the left channel tube with the right channel tube, and the noise I was hearing followed the tube and is now coming through my left channel. Cool. Should I be concerned about continuing to use my prea...

Well… didn’t get a response, and now the listing is gone. Hope some audiophile out there lucked out on a $500 pair of CUBs. sorry for wasting y’all’s time.

@rsf507  they’re about a four hour drive, but I’m game. Just waiting for a reply to my email. I dunno, the price was low enough that it occurred to me that someone might just be trolling audiophiles. Seen that before. We’ll see.  
Wilson CUB I
Well, I emailed the guy, so I guess I’ll find out what the deal is…   @audiotroy  I don’t know, my amp makes something like 400wpc into a 4ohm load. I’d hope that’d be enough. @boxer12  Nothing especially illustrious. I have an LS25 MKII feed...
