Adam A7X monitors: prone to blowing fuses?

Recommended Posts

With the lockdown era here, I've been doing a lot more home recording.  I am now looking into a pair of home studio monitors and thought about the Adam A7X. 

I was actually thinking about picking up a pair second-hand, however it seems that the A7X is prone to blowing fuses?  I'm wondering if others here have had some experience with these speakers.  I certainly wouldn't want to pick up a problematic pair that are no longer under warranty!

It’s not something I’ve heard of, where did you get that information?

I’ve had a pair for a year or so, used most days and no issues. I did some research before I got them and never heard of anything like that, they were well reviewed and rated by SOS and others

There was a pair up for sale on eBay, and the description field said "also comes with a bunch of spare fuses", so I started to get suspicious.  I asked the seller about this, and he confessed that yes, this pair had been blowing fuses pretty regularly.   I started to google around a bit on the issue, and found more and more reports of blown fuses.  From the comments and responses that I found, the issue appears to be related to the power transformer?

Ok thanks. Like I said, I’ve not heard of anything like that, but I’ll see what I can find out on Monday for you.

I have had a pair of A7X for 9 years (240V so 1.6A fuse), and a pair of A3X for 4 years. Only fuse ever blown was yesterday when I pulled out of of the A7X fuses to look at it (stupid really :) and blew it putting it back in. Great speakers. Only issue I have had is with Sub7 subwoofer not switching on (not a fuse issue). If this pair is blowing fuses repeatedly, sound like they need some professional love, but wouldn't take that as a sign of a widespread issue.
