In all components I felt the HiFi Tuning Supreme fuses improved resolution to a degree. It is more evolutionary than revolutionary, but I was able to clearly hear an improvement when comparing the HiFi Tuning Supreme fuses to the stock fuses. It's been five years now and all of these components are still using these fuses to my complete satisfaction.

    Hi Dan,

    Is there a way I can check the fuse value of the MC452 and c2500 without opening them up?

    Thanks,

    Re: Fuse exchange, have you tried?

    Do you mean the specified value for that component or the actual value of an individual fuse?

    Paul.......You do not have to open the McIntosh MC452 power amplifier. The fuse holder is accessible on the rear of the amplifier between the speaker terminals. The McIntosh C2500 preamplifier does not have an external fuse holder. The incoming power fuse is located on the Backup PS circuit board that is accessible by removing the bottom cover. The fuse is held in a snap in fuse holder labeled F1 on the circuit board.

    It would be the actual value of an individual fuse so I can purchase.

    Thanks

    Thanks Dan!

    I have also noticed quite a difference in prices for the HiFi Tuning Supreme fuses. Ebay is much cheaper that the usual boutique places.

    Paul.......The C2500 preamp fuse is T800mAL/250V. You will need to check the fuse size, but judging from the drawing in the C2500 service manual it appears to be a 5 x 20mm. This is a slow blow fuse.

    The MC452 power amplifier fuse is 15A/250V fast blow fuse. Double check the size of the fuse in your amp, but I think it is a 6.3 x 32mm size fuse.
