Both fuses fine, definitely the left channel in the 280. I have a spare so I intend to swap over internals and hopefully solve the issue, and find someone to repair the faulty 280.
I wish myself good luck Smile

If you can't find someone locally to repair the faulty 280 then I can thoroughly recommend this guy:-

JSL Electronics

Unidisk SC | Majik LP12 | Trampolin 2 | Lingo 3.
Akurate DSM/2 | Akurate Exaktbox 10 | 2 x Akurate 4200/1 | Exakt dual-mono Keilidhs
Raspberry Pi 2 Model B | IQAudio Pi-DAC+ | Audiolab 8000A | AR28s.

And they also tripped my fuse box.

Boxed up ready for repair,
Another spark arriving this week, I will get to hear soon how the spark performs one day I hope.
My intention is to have one feeding bass and other treble.
Dreading the power load on my fuse box.

The connector from the Spark into the back of the LK280 is pretty poor and is easy to make bad/no connection.

RE: Lin Spark,,,,,,what to expect
Anyone know if any change was made to the PCB boards on a LK280 for addition of the spark ?
My thinking is to swap over a board from one 280 to the spark on and see if that solves the issue
Second working spark arrived today Smile
