What is happening with some makers?
Over recent months there seems to be a string problems: BBB and his Roksan turntable, Steve and the Elicit saga, issue with Rega Saturn-R, other turntable woes. Cno had issues with his Arcam AV600 and MF 35i... Even your truly hasn't escaped this insidious disease increasingly infecting modern gear: The Naim CDP had to be returned for a transport repalcement and a few weeks before the Leema was returned for a second time with headphone humming.
Not saying it's the majority - definitely the minority, but the numbers are stacking up.
About time these so-called great manufactuers woke up and solved these niggly issues long before they reach the dealers.
