And actually, I guess for speakers things are a lot easier, since you mostly don't test and replace a single IC if that is the failed part, but the whole amp board, Genelec can easily swarp a new generation amp inside a sent in legacy product and all they need to do is to not over driven the speaker, and do a post repair factory calibration. it's not like cars with different dimension parts where you can't fit a newer gearbox into a old car as easyI’m talking about getting it serviced, not getting it serviced under warranty. You mentioned concern about taking it in and them not having the parts to repair it. I’m just pointing out that you have to worry about that at all. Genelec goes to great lengths to make sure that doesn’t happen, and there are indeed reports online of people getting service for that long. Being a “pro” brand, they live and die by their reliability, much more so than consumer audiophile brands. Studios need a speaker that will survive 8 hours a day of near reference level use for many years. Reliability and serviceability is often king in the studio world.
