I’m a user of Mu-so 1 in South Korea.
I have some problem of my Mu-so’s repair.
In South Korea, if Mu-so’s main broad is broken, Mu-so must be sent to the UK for repair.
Because Naim headquarter doesn’t not supply the main board in South Korea.
In addition, the customer has to pay all shipping-fee to repair the product.
But the problem is that the main broad costs is about $200, the shipping-fee is $600.
If main board is broken, who will send it to UK to repair?
I think this situation is very irrational.
So, I’m very curious what the situation is in other countries.
If the main broad is repaired in other countries, will the product be sent to UK?
Because the Naim headquarters doesn’t supply main board.
And does the customer pay all the shipping-fee?
Also, are there any country in the world that supply main board?
I’m writing in a really frustrating heart.
If anyone has experienced the same as me, I would like to share the situation.
Thank you for reading, and please reply.
The situation differs in different countries, depending on the capabilities of the distributors. Some distributors, e.g. in Germany where I live, also perform more complex repairs/service, others do not.
Regarding your unfortunate situation and how it is handled in South Korea, I am sure @Richard.Dane can help.
In this case, and as Richard recommended the same, your best chance of success is surely to contact Naim through the Contact Information on the homepage. I hope very much that they can offer you a better solution than $800 for a repair including a required shipment. Best wishes.
When I enquired my dealer for a purchase of a Mu-So Qb 1, I was told after warranty period (2-years in my country) they would bin them, not being able to repair first generation Mu-So’s, neither Mu-So or Qb, if any issues occurred.
If fail within warranty period, I’d simply get a new one.
Sound crazy but he insisted.
He told aprox three out of fifty sold failed
Deal-breaker for me unfortunately.
Not sure if this is changed with the mk2 Mu-so’s, bit of waste to bin them I think.
