Curious about the faceplate. What color face did it originally have?

The standard Manley faceplates are a blueish/gray color, while for the SE versions some are offered in a more conventional black.

The reason I asked is because from the OP's topic, it was assumed he already had the SE version.

Yes, since it was still under warranty. Normal warranty is 90 days UNLESS you register the product then it jumps to 5 yrs. Their service guy told me when units come in for repair , and upgrades have been done since original purchase, then they upgrade to new component status.

Monday ship was a bit premature. May be another 5 - 10 working days.

Kevin.......Hallelujah. Did Manley give you any explanation as to the nature of the malfunction? I feel confident the repair will leave you happy and satisfied. I have auditioned the Chinook and it sounded very good.

Manley will definitely take care of you. I believe I had a couple of issues with my Chinook and Manley took very nice care of me. Especially with the Snapper(s), awesome freakn' company. I will highly recommend them.

Did not know about the SE version. The Chinook is a very nice piece of gear. Very natural sounding.

Supposedly the unit was shipped out on Friday. They replaced a PCB and some capacitors plus updated the software. Their service team was very informative and forth-coming.

Some of the best customer service out there. Let us know how she sounds when you get her back.
