Thank you for putting this up for someone to receive.

I am new to Decware, after hearing about the company from my cousin in Bloomington IL. In November, I put in my order for a Select.  Since NOV, I have done a lot of reading in the Forums and I bought a pair of used DM945s from anther Forum member. To keep me listening until the Select arrives, I bought a used Marantz receiver and Sony CD player on Facebook Marketplace and I will use my iPhone to stream music through the receiver. I have no cables right now and I would use this cable between the CD player and receiver.  When the Select arrives, then it would replace the Marantz.

This is not a component that I have a need for at this time, but I would like to comment that this is an incredibly nice gesture.  Happy new year and have a wonderful day.


5  AUDIO FORUMS / Classifieds / Jolida PH9 phono pre

Over the last year, I have been attempting to complete a phono stage of my own making. I finally completed it, and now there is no need for 3-4 phono stages. Yup, I tried out a few, and the Jolida is only a slight second to the expensive Glassware Audio unit that I built.
I got the Jolida for a good price and switched out output capacitors to Obligatto Gold caps. Then since I was doing that, I replaced all the electrolytic caps in the unit as well.
I am pricing this sale far below its value. The unit has especially good bass, and no complaints at all about the rest of the audio spectrum.

6  AUDIO FORUMS / General Discussion and Support / Re: non stock fuse replacements
 on: Yesterday at 19:56:26

I am beginning to think about fuses for my Decware products. I have read that there is a range of fuse upgrades from lower-priced ceramics to expensive Synergistic Research Purple. I got that. A common denominator for fuse replacement for Decware products is SB 5X20mm. I got that too. Descriptions for amps seem to vary, although 3 - 3.15 seem like a standard reference. References to volts are less common, but I have seen 240V mentioned. I'm not sure about that.  I have a dedicated line of 120V for my power conditioner.

First question: Are these metrics correct for my amp? †

Next, how many fuses are there in an amp? Initially, I thought there was only one, but it appears that some amps (all?) have more than one. So if I replace the fuses (assuming more than one), I should do it for all the fuses in that amp to make a difference?

Second question: Do each Decware product take a different fuse with different metrics? For example, I saw fuse references to a Torii Jr. (6.3 amp), CSP 3 (3.15 amp), and the ZROCK (1.6 amp). So I should check each product to identify its replacement fuse?

The SE84UFO Manual states: Fused 5 x 20 mm 3 AMP/120V or 1.6 AMP/240V. I could not find a similar statement regarding fuse description anywhere in the Torii MKIV manual.

Also, should I be thinking of replacing fuses in other components of my system? For example, would I also want to replace fuses in the DAC and the streamer?

Finally, I have a slight hum in my amp. I have tried most of the suggested hum management suggestions given by others without success. Since I am unaware of it when listening to music, it's more of a curiosity than an issue. I read a post by Steve that a rectifier fuse may cause a hum.

Question 3: †Assuming there is more than one rectifier fuse in my Torii, could the hum be caused by one of the rectifier fuses?

Thanks in advance for any guidance you might be able to give on these questions.

Thanks for the help!  Looking only for speakers for the 2a3 at the present time.  I have too many other speakers, preamps, amps etc (if that is possible?).  I haven't gone down the vinyl rabbit hole so source is either CD or high rez streaming.  Hope to try out Decware amp in the near future.
