Model 1 No Longer Serviceable - Options?
One of my L1 Model 1's failed recently - I believe the PS1 power supply to be the issue as a quick search reveals this seems to be a common problem, at least with the earlier generation models.
After a brief discussion with Bose support, I must say I'm disappointed to learn the Model 1 is "no longer repairable". I was advised of an "exchange" course of action for a Model 2 in a "worst case scenario".
As the primary use for my L1's have been for mobile DJ applications, I have some concerns about introducing the Model 2 into my setup across from a Model 1. I've received feedback that while the Model 2 is well suited for live music application, it may not measure up to the Model 1 in a DJ setting.
Are there truly no options for Model 1 owners looking to have a unit repaired (especially considering the commonality of the issue)? This must have been a relatively recent development as a colleague of mine had the same problem and was able to send his in to be looked at. Though Bose could not fix it, he was offered a replacement - the customer service I would expect from a premium brand.
Any help is appreciated.
