Rogue Cronus Magnum Dies Help

I was listening to my Rogue Cronus Magnum this afternoon This unit had cap and resistor upgrades done at Rogue by the original owner a couple of years ago., Today suddenly the remote stopped working I changed batteries which were fine I also tried to program a LT 350 but that did not work either I called Rogue but they had no idea. 20 minutes later the volume control started working via remote.

I went for 20 minute walk with the dog. Upon arrival home I found the amp the amp dark No tubes lit , no blue light on. I tried the power button on and off Nothing Unplugged it waited then plugged it in Nothing I checked the power supply fuse and it is fine I checked another large fuse inside. it is fine as are the 4 small ones. Push the power button It does nothing Took it in the kitchen Same thing Dead as a whatever. What happened here?? The main transformer go out??? Thanks

Even with my FedEx or UPS account it is still $50 to $65 to ship this thing each way and going back and forth is 8 days total just shipping time. Once there the meter starts running plus parts pretty sure their rates are high.

amazes me that members will spend pretty much any amount on equipment , cables, speakers, etc....but when it comes time to ship the unit as it needs to be repaired, they complain how much it will cost.   
Then you are worried about the back and forth time....which it might not even take that long.
if you want the unit fixed, then send it to Rogue and be done with it.

I wouldnt have even started this thread, I would have contacted Rogue, got the info I need to ship it and it would be on its way.     

My cables are $100 used interconnects (old AQ and Analysis Plus. Speakers are $400 to $700 used Mirage OM5s, M3s and Infinity RS 2.5s
if you can afford all of that , then you can surely afford to ship the that will be nothing to what you have spent on cables and speakers.

i sent you a pm when you first posted this and suggested that you ship it back to Rogue.....other members have chimed in and said the same I dont see why you dont just do it.?

if it was a huge amp then I could see where shipping costs could be a factor and the risk of it being damaged in shipping.....but this amp doesnt weigh all that much......and it doesnt have to travel very far, so not many hands will handle it.

so you spend the $350 or so to get it fixed.....but if you like the unit and it hasnt given you any trouble since you have had it, its worth spending the money to get it fixed.

nobody likes when equipment goes down, but its all part of it....and its no different than spending money on our vehicle and we have to take it to the dealership...but we dont complain about that....its part of owning a vehicle.

the unit will be like brand new when it returns.....
Kind of like a dog with a bone? What is your deal?? Let it go.

all I was simply saying that if it only costs you a small amount of money and you like this unit, then its worth it.
it might just be a $5-10 part that went bad and it will take the tech a few minutes to diagnosis it...but what you can you do ?     .         
  if you are going to sit here and complain about how much something costs to ship or the cost of a  $5-10 part that went bad , but they charge you some crazy amount for diagnosis / parts and labor....then maybe you need to find a different hobby.       and that is all you have done is complain on how much its going to cost.   deal with it and move on.

 do you think that you are the only member here that has had to deal with something like this ?             

have a nice day .
