5 year when you send in the registration card (at least on the DACs)
Yes, you have to read down into fine print

which I failed to do
Me either when looking up their warranty for this thread.

A bit (lot) deceptive IMO. If the product is of a build quality to earn a 5 year warranty why try to trick as many as possible out of it with this silly piece of sideways marketing. That's crap!

Respect! In-house pick and place and the rest of the assembly probably set one back a few hundred thousand dollars. Didn't think they had enough volume to justify that.

Sadly, I have seen examples of exactly this:

On Head Fi, I have seen people seriously arguing that one should have a $600 DAC / Amp combo in order to "get the most" out of cheap $25 IEMs.
I've seen people over there replace their stock headphone cables with cables that cost several times as much as the phones themselves. That place is ridiculous.

While faith may be belief without proof, if you can convince yourself in what you are doing (without proof) then there is no stopping how illogical you might act.

I just now see halogen lights being included in a list of offenders as a cause of distress on our AC lines, at least for the faithful.

Ok, maybe if using a dimmer, otherwise, I can't see the light.
