Still a bit lazy to connect up everything.
Well, maybe if the dac2x v2 come in tomorrow, i might.
Hopefully no problem...
I used to have a GamuT CD-1 and had the darndest time finding the AC fuse - it was located in a small drawer attached to the back of the IEC jack itself!
It appears by this pic from the manual that the CDSD possesses the same arrangement. With the GamuT, you depressed the little drawer and it opened revealing the fuse.
A blown fuse in a component such as this is usally not the root problem. Blown fuses are often the problem in equipment which can be subjected to overloaded outputs, such as with a power amplifier, where fuses can be safely replaced after the overload condition has been corrected.
Blown fuses in equipment not subject to overload are due to some internal fault which then blew the fuse. The internal fault would have to be identified and corrected, else the unit would continue blowing replaced fuses. That is why such components typically have their fuse typically located completely inside their chassis for access only by qualified personal, not externally accessible so that a user can easily replace it.

The fuse for the GamuT and what clearly appears to be the case with the EMM Labs unit are located externally . :)
Then that's a recipe for trouble.
I called EMM labs spoke to Deven,He sent a pic of the power supply & recommended replacing 3 of the caps in the power supply.Should solve the issue.
that's definitely more than replacing a fuse!
Whom is your dealer? Start there for best outcome.
Devices which show no signs of life usually have some sort of primary power supply problem. Those are often the easiest circuit problems to troubleshoot. While I can't make a particular recommemdation, it wouldn't surprise me that most any competent TV/General Electronics repair shop could at least troubleshoot the power supply.
That said, I would first persist in contacting EMM Labs. They likely simply have a less than rapid constomer service operation - if so, shame on them. Given the cost of your unit, I would be very hesitant to have anyone work on the unit aside from EMM. Can you not take it to the dealer from whom you purchased it?
