Nice one Jesse,

(we'll have to be getting you a curly pipe and and a deerstalker!)

Indeed they look the same. As the MPC5000 post-dated the Fusion?, the parts should be around for longer.

I guess for COMPLETE reassurance, we need someone with a burned out Fusion PSU - to try one.

Perhaps the 1a prefix denotes a LATER iteration of the circuit - and possibly more robust 8O

I wonder if Numark might be persuaded to admit its the same PSU - or at least - suitable for the Fusion?

If it IS suitable - then why did we get led all around the houses with the "Not available" scenario? :roll:

Hmm . . . .

Best Regards

Perhaps because they didn't have the guts to say they are no longer going to support the Fusion? Or they just couldn't be bothered? I don't know, so many companies that many considered to be reputable over the years have really dropped the ball on support/service the last few years. I guess the present state of the economy plays at least some role in that, but it also seems that a lot of then just don't care anymore.

I have confirmed it with Instrumental Parts that the above listed parts are shared between the Alesis Fusion & the Akai MPC5000.
The only difference is the part number and higher cost for the Akai parts.

Ah yes, but are they actually available or is it just an out-of-date listing on ebaY? It's a bit poor they charge so much extra for the AKAI name if it really is an identical unit (although I agree it may be specced up a bit for the MPC5000 although the cynic in me says that with no keyboard and ancillary circuitry it should be specced down therefore cheaper).

According to mpcstuff, not in stock. No surprise, I guess...

Great News! I just called Akai Parts at 401-658-3131 ext 1407 to see if they had any PSU's for the MPC5000, he asked if I was sure that was the right part number, I said it's the same PSU that is in the Fusion, he said okay sounds like we have the right part. $98 dollars each +S&H, I ordered two. Part number SPSHA33R4-058N

I don't know if this is the old version or the new version PSU, but it's a PSU for the Fusion & MPC5000.

When they arrive I will take a few pictures for reference and check all the voltage outputs for future reference and post the info here

That's excellent news jesse!

Perhaps someone should ask the same question here in the UK - then we can all rest secure . . .

For a while at least :D

What was the (Akai) Part No.?

February 8th I called Akai Pro Parts at 401-658-3131 ext 1407 to see if they had a
PCB, CFL INVERTER (AC INVERTER) PART # 9-79-0365 & PCB
CCFL DIMMER PART # 9-79-0366
They had both and I ordered 2 each, $62 including S&H
These parts are the same for the Alesis Fusion and the MPC-5000

Based on a previous thread on the FusionClub

http://fusioneer.proboards.com/index.cg ... 247&page=1

[quote author=admin board=general thread=1247 post=8260 time=1213027363]I spoke to Alesis UK who gave me a part number. I confirmed it with Justin.

He's a bit tied up first thing back after the weekend and a shedload of email to wade through so he's has asked me to tell you that the part number is : 9-79-0361

According to AUK, the price is £37.50 if the fault is out of warranty but speak nicely to them - they may be agreeable to waiving that. No guarantees on that though.

Over to you.

I believe this is the new improved PSU, at least it has the same part number 9-79-0361

The price from akai Pro is $98 + S&H
