I'm reading this forum a lot, tyhough I'm not participating much, as I'm French.
I would like to expose my problem and maybe get some explanations. The fact is: my Speed Box seems to have burn. And it's the second time it happens, in the very same way it burnt the first time! Oh my...
Let me get you the facts. I often listen to music on the evening. I usually plug off the power supply of the speedbox, after having turned it off, just in case. One day (it was during the summer) I forgot to plug it off. The morning after, the Speed Box wasn't working anymore : I was able to turn it on, but the platter of the TT was'nt turning anymore. I took the Speed box off, used the original power supply of the TT and everything was working ok.
Then I sent the Speed Box to my retailer, which told me the inside components had burnt, just as if the Speed Box had been used to supply power to something else than the TT. Which of course was not the case (I'm a very careful TT user). So they replaced the inside components and send it back to me. I asked them for more explanations, but they didn't give them to me.
Well, yesterday, the same thing just happened again! I put the speed box in standby mode, but forgot to plug it off. The morning after, no speed box working.
I have no pikes of electrical tension in my appartment. I wonder what is the cause. My question is, how comes that my Speed Box burn when I'm not using it? Doesn't it stand to be plugged? Does it mean than using a speed box in a normal way mean taking the risk it burns without warning?
I dare to think that Pro-ject commodities are solid enough...
I'm very upset because, apart the fact it's the second time it happens, I think this speed box was quite an upgrade in the sound. So I wouldn't do without it...
Well, if someone has explanations or can testify of the same experience, I'd be glad to discuss the problem.
With my best wishes for you gentlemen!
