Hi. the fuse depends on your mains voltage. Yes, you can remove the volume pot, it will not affect the other output.

I just picked up on eo fthese DAC from a fellow but it came with no manual.
What value fuse whould be used on the mains (It's 115V not 220) ?
Also, I am building a small enclosure for the DAC . I will not be used at all for a headphone amnp so the variable output is not needed... can I desolder and remove the volume pot and still have the fixed output function normally ?
