one step ahead
This is where things become little more complicated, but bear with us - we stand behind every sale that we make, with ultimate customer support and unmatched warranty in our price level (and few levels above, as you will see).
The return policy applies to products sold directly by Vista Audio. Vista Audio products purchased from our delaers are covered by their return policies. It is dealer's responsibility to meet local regulatory requirements and to follow customer protection laws.
We design and test our equipment to work flawlessly for many, many years (our role models are Scott, Bogen, Dynaco and other classic manufacturers whose amplifiers work well even after 40 or 50 years, with only minor upgrades of dried-out electrolytic capacitors). However, tube gear is sometimes just a little unpredictable and moody and refuses to operate as intended. In those rare instances there is a need for support and that's when our customer service skills kick in. Therefore, we warrant all our products for a period of 2 years plus 10 days (and tubes for 6 months plus 10 days) starting with the date of original shipment (that's why the "plus 10" - it accounts for transit time, makes it easy for us to track the time and ensures that you have full 2 years coverage). This is a limited warranty (as we cannot help if the unit gets intentionally damaged or in some other rare circumstances), so please make sure to read our LIMITED WARRANTY.
Below is our return policy. Please note that shipping costs are not refundable. Please note that our distributors and dealers may have different return policies. For all the details, please read our complete RETURN POLICY.
- Days 1-45: 10% RESTOCKING / REFURBISHING FEE
1. Electronics and transformers: 2 years plus 10 days
2. Electron tubes: 6 months plus 10 days
