    Has anyone suffered any problems with the Monitor Audio Radius 360 sub? although it still works o.k. the blue power on L.E.D. on the front panel which lights up when a signal is sensed has gone kaput! obviously its still under warranty but at this point I shall wait till my hols for a repair (as I have been quoted a couple of weeks and am at the moment only running this system as my new "mini Cini" room nears its final completion)
    Thanks in advance for your replys :confused:

    I have this problem too - never bothered to get it fixed, but it is annoying. Would be interested to hear how you got on.

    Hi all

    Shortly after the "blue light" incident I managed to de-laminate a speaker cone (it simply came unstuck from the unit) leaving me no option but to seek a repair, I took both the speaker and sub back to "sevenoakes" where a repair was undertaken, both within 1 week and to date have had no further problems (touch wood!)

    :thumbsup:

    I have had two units where the LED has gone. It didn't bother me much as the damn thing burns your eyes out in a dark room but it was useful to indicate when the sub was alive and when it wasn't.

    I accepted an extra year of warrenty in return for keeping the second unit as I was told that they had only had it happen three times world wide. There's nothing worse than getting lied to by a supplier as it would clearly seem the problem is more widespread than they have let on.

    On both of my subs the LED went within a few days. On the first one it started working again for a couple of days after I moved it but it then went completely.

    Does my experience match anyone elses?

    Exactly how I feel I was also told that I was the first!..(how many times have you heard that from a lady!) I bought the units with honest hard earned money and expect the same from the re-sellers and manufacturers.
    Maybe I will have second thoughts on the dem of the MA GR 10 speakers that I had included in my shortlist for future audio upgrades? :mad:

    ceenhad - my experience has been identical to yours right down to it working again for a few days when moved a couple of feet!

    happychappy - which branch of Sevenoaks did you buy from as I also bought from them (in Weybridge) and it may be helpful if I can refer to your problem and branch when taking in for repair - thanks.
