Hey guys, Over the past 2 months I have gone through 3 separate L1s model 2. I have had to return them to Guitar Center for a couple of issues. The first was the Tone match cable getting stuck to the base unit. The second issue was the T1 freezing in the middle of a gig(dead air) and I had to restart the unit and all the settings. The next unit was making a buzzing type of noise through the speakers when I powered it off. When Guitar Center got the next one I went in to test it out before taking it home and it ALSO had the buzzing sound when I powered it off. I Also had a gig with the unit and the new T1 froze on stage again. Today I went to GC and opened the 4th L1 shipped from the factory.IT ALSO HAD THE BUZZING SOUND. The GC guys spoke with Bose immediate and they said we needed to download the new firmware for the T1 and powerstand. I just finished the downloads and restarted the third system that I'm holding on to until we try one more new system from the Bose Factory. Guess what.. NOW not only does the column speakers buzz but the sub buzzes as well. Bose, I think you have a quality control issue with these new L1s. I'm in the Bay Area and I purchased the first unit on May 28th. The sales team at Concord Guitar Center will be contacting you in the next day or so to arrange a new system one more time. I would suggest opening it and giving it a once over with all the necessary firmware upgrades before shipping it to them for me. I'll be very honest. This is our last go around with the unit. If it doesn't work out of the box without these buzzing issues I'm taking advantage of my extended warranty with GC and getting my money back. I love sound of the unit but these issues outweigh the reliability of the product.
I'm very glad to have purchased it from a reliable pro audio vender that stands behind their customers. I hope the people at Bose can show the kind of commitment that Guitar Center is giving this product.
