$210 to repair what Line 6 knows is bogus... Hillarious. I gotta friend who bought one of these amps around a year ago. Same issue started to happen, he sees lots of others having this problem from posts/blogs. Contacts Line 6 and they say he's gotta spend the $ to fix the known problem. He puts a fan behind his amp to attempt to avoid problem at practice and gigs. I've purchases two pedal boards (gtr and bass) as well as an amp...none of which I ever use. My main gear is all Mesa Boogie and when I contact them about issues they are happy to help (no, they don't ship free tubes) but if their are known issues they either tell me what to do to fix or indicate they'll fix (no, I don't work for Mesa).
I do work for an elecontrics company...if we found there was a problem with thermal even with a product we'd shipped multiple years in the past, we'd fix. For a company like Line 6 to fail to address customer problems like thermal (or the equivalent items like emc, safety) makes me wonder what sort of company this really is.
Based on treatment of my fellow band mate I'll likely never purchase another line6 product
