I agree somewhat with that. However as a player you also have to have faith that your amp will get you through a gig. After a failure and warranty repair some player's will always have that "will it fail again" thought in the back of their mind.
I've been through that before and it's always a possibility. I sold the amp and moved on. That said, my PF500 was trouble free in the year I owned it.
