    So I’ve had this amp coming up on a year April 7th... I love it and it’s been absolutely flawless. I have a chance to re new the warranty for another year for $40 until April 7.... just wondering peoples opinion on this? If it’s been solid and hasn’t skipped a beat in a year is this a waste of money to get for another year? Or is it a good idea to renew it?

    Pass. I won't even buy the extended warranties on cars and we know what those can cost.

    Renew it? The manufacturers warranty covers the first year anyway. And, I never buy the extended warranties on electronics, but that’s me. If you’re nervous, pay the $40.

    Warranty is probably useless

    Terms are most likely ship the dang thing to them at your own expense, then wait 60 or so days after they receive it for a verdict... and who knows if they'll even be open in this new and improved coronavirus world order.

    Is this the type warrantee that provides an instant replacement if your amp breaks?
    Beyond the factory warrantee?

    Because the factory warrantee already covers normal repairs for 3-5 years (not instant replacement).

    But:
    The DSL40CR has a lot of problems, and quite a few have gone to the service center over and over again.
    We know that several of these amps have defective microprocessor chips.
    And so, if the warrantee provides instant replacement, (above and beyond the factory) $40- then it IS worth it.

    Mine are the Dsl40c’s I have had them since 4/10/16 only problem so far has been 2 preamp tubes.
    I would skip the extended warranty.
    Cheers

    Who did you get your warranty from? The 40CR already has a 5-year...
