I’d also be curious to see any evidence on this. I’ve had mine a year with no issues. I’ve seen the odd post where someone has took one apart and the conclusion was parts are difficult to repair but cost effective to just replace. No strong reason to suspect they’d fail too easily for club gigs etc, they might not love lots of outdoor use though.What issues are people having? I would think TDPRI would be full of posts if there even a few issues. I am not talking about general complaints, I am talking about failures and malfunctions. I am just trying to learn more about them and am looking for specifics.
Happy to be pointed in the direction of some experiences contrary or supporting. Otherwise in worst case economically speaking it has to last long enough before junking to have outlived the cost of tubes and servicing. Environmentally that’s less than ideal but parts can be recycled I guess. I’m sure that’ll stick for some as a point who do like their soldering irons, but as someone who earns their living in IT it doesn’t seem out of line to me.
At end of the day this isn’t a massively new and unknown product as such…it’s a computer and a speaker system. Neither of those things scare me.
