Chased again this morning. Support replied that the 861v4 is no longer serviced, but that they are trying to sort something out for me. Which is good, but also, yikes!

7xDSP5500 and 2xSW5500 are relying on this 861 getting fixed...

That's interesting as I just checked and the 5 year health-check warranty on mine runs out in April... wink

I believe it is the same PSU in the 861v6 which I am assuming is still supported?

It’s the same power supply alright and that upgrade is still available so maybe they’re covering themselves in case it turns out to be something else ? Maybe they would offer a discounted upgrade ? That’s probably where a good dealer comes in .

Hi Manus

I agree, although I don’t recall hearing of 861 switch mode PSU’s failing high and damaging other boards as happened in early G series?

Mark, I've just realized that I have my old PSU. It's yours if you want it.

Hi Russ
Still I would hope that they could sort something for Mark as his is an all digital M system ? It’s my biggest fear that something critical fails and I lose the entire system just like a Home Cinema in a box ! At least I would still have music :O) M
