    Fuse upgrade for MBS DAC

    I’m about to receive my new MSB discrete dac and pretty excited about it. I have a spare SR purple fuse which I have in my previous dac. It’s a 2A and not a 2.5A as the one coming standard with MSB. Would it work as well? Is the SR purple a good match with the MSB discrete? Thanks for the advice.
