Horrible Service

I bought a factory refurbished surround Sound processor - Rotel's "flagship" model, RSP-1582. The unit had a 90 Day Warranty and failed 120 days in. I've been trying to get the unit fixed, and accept it is going to be an out-of pocket expense, but after over 60 days since I first contacted their customer service, and waiting weeks to just get an RMA and address to ship the unit in, I am still waiting for repair. Their authorized service center tells me they've been trying to get Rotel to provide a service manual/schematic, but has not gotten a response from Rotel. The whole experience has been a horrific example of what poor service looks like. My original purchase, a RMB-1075 THX Power Amp has been a workhorse for many years and paved the path for what I thought was a lifetime fan. However, Rotel's quality and service has slipped. This RSP-1582 was my third Rotel product purchase and will be my last.

User's recommendation: Don't by a Rotel product.
