DSP PCB failed within a year under extremely light use and they won't cover it under warranty... It is $800 plus labor to fix it! Worst customer service I've ever experienced for a high-end piece of equipment... STAY FAR FAR FAR away from NAD... I feel defrauded by this company... Karma will get them!
