I think you are lying.
I opened mine but cannot see how the binding post can be a first failure point. One has to cut open the plastic housing of the binding posts to actually see
anything relevant to the fault.
Can you please elaborate and fully explain your statement "how the banana plugs would be the first failure point"?
If you really saw inside and understood what you saw, then;
1. you can explain fully why is it that no unit with the fault actually got fixed thru warranty repair, NONE.
2. you can explain the meaning of what a very courteous and well-mannered person like Mistar Muffin, who we all know actually saw inside, stated "I suggest everyone baby your binding posts on these units
3. you can explain fully, that at the minimum, that all units can potentially fail in the not-too-distant-future due to the binding posts' "fragility", if you know what we are talking about.
Enough said. Maybe I should now heed the advice "Not to discuss anything with an i....., he'll bring you down to his/her level and beat you up with experience."
