    wtf is with kb audio?

    I first sent my amp off like earlier january and i got it back and it would still go into protection so i sent it back, and he said he couldnt find anything wrong with it, so he was gonna send me another amp thats just like it but diff case. i was cool with that but then he said there was somthin wrong with it and still hasnt fixed that one. i'm thinking about just buying a new one and filing a claim with paypal and bbb.

    File a claim.

    K&B Audio has really taken a dive towards shady in recent history...

    Re: wtf is with kb audio?

    I was going to send in an amp but not sure about now... You guys know any other places where they do a great job and have a decent price?
    Thanks

    Re: wtf is with kb audio?

    I sent 3 amps to them a while ago (~ 2 years IIRC), and all seemed to work fine for me back then. I still have one of the amps but haven't hooked it up in ages.


    But i've heard alot of stuff about kb recently. Looks like the company took a turn for the worse.

    Re: wtf is with kb audio?

    Ive been dealing with Scott at www.amprepaircenter.com recently, fast turn around and free shipping back to ya..about the same prices as K&B but you actually get to see your amp again.

    Id speak about more bad experiences with K&B, but I dont feel like writing a dissertation today.

    I sent off a memphis amp a while back and it arrived back in a week. Works perfect, and KB was in contact with me the whole time.

    Indeed about the bolded part. That's why I limited my comment to such a short one ...
