    My SONY STRDB925 stopped & emitted a puff of blue smoke. It's 4 years old & I paid £500 for it . Should I try & get it repaired or buy something new. I have a 4 YEAR OLD SONY DVPS715 DVD/CD player, MISSION 735i front speakers, MISSION 70C2 centre speaker and KENWOOD RS550 rears. Money is of course a little short right now and I would appreciate some advice to get the best solution.

    thanks in anticipation!

    Phone your insurance company see if they do appliance cover, if they do check you have it and claim for a brand new £500 amp.

    Insurance is exactly that; recompense in the event of the worst happening. Perfectly legal assuming your policy covers it and you don't blow it up on purpose.

    I have endsleigh cover and accidental damage and appliance cover costs me £15 a year on top. I have £2500 worth of cover. So if you dont have it i would call them and ask quick. basically I would ask it my already be covered. or an option. you never know when a power surge, lightening or pint will knacker a component. thats part of the scam at high street retailer extended warranty, half the time its covered by insurance policies you already hold. Mobie phones and a few others are exceptions but they can usually covered for a higher excess or rise in premium. If you £2000+ pounds of gear i think as much as £100 a year is worth it to protect your investment............But just my humble opinion..........
