I would say this is true for their older products almost all the failures i have seen are power supply related and even more specifically mains filter caps. Now their more recent products are a different story. Since they were acquired by MUSIC Group quality is way up. In fact any of their products that are carrying the Midas Preamps or the klark teknik FX i consider just as reliable as if they were produced to be released under those brands.
