My G68ADV stopped outputting sound just before X'mas. I contacted Meridian support who said they have recently stopped repairing these. Not sure if that applies to others in the G68 range as well.

Well that is rather disappointing


Wonderful perfect quadraphonic sound with distortion levels so low as to make a brave man weep smile

Is there a list of what is and is not repairable by Meridian?


Always learn from the mistakes of others. You can never live long enough to make them all yourself.

When did the extended guarantees on G-series products expire?

IIRC it was three years after the check/repair and power supply upgrade.

Perhaps this is timed to coincide with those guarantees expiring?
