Thanks for that confirmation. Please reach out directly to the dealer in this case, they should be your point of contact for hardware issues, and if they have any further questions, they can reach out directly to us via our dealer channel. As @wizardofoz mentioned, your Nucleus should still be under warrenty. Thank you!
Since this is an international sale and not a domestic USA sale, you will need to work with the dealer to have this unit serviced at our German distributor center.
We do not deliver replacement parts/units to dealers (nor users) internationally, instead, we have a general area distributor that handles repairs for that specific country.
The overview of this process is: User returns Nucleus to the dealer → dealer reaches out to the local distributor and sends them the unit → distributor performs any repairs needed → distributor sends Nucleus back to dealer → dealer returns Nucleus to the user.
In any case, getting in touch with the dealer would be the first step here, and then returning the unit to them. I will reach out shortly to Auditorium to provide them with the German distributor contact info, and shall they have any follow-up questions, we can discuss directly via our dealer channel.
If you can please provide the following information, it would help expedite this process:
When was the Nucleus purchased?
What model Nucleus is this? (Nucleus or Nucleus+)
What is the serial number found on the bottom panel?
I’m in Vienna Austria and we are in full lockdown again. For me, it would be nearly impossible to get some packing material to ship the broken Nucleus to the dealer in Germany. It feels like I will be without new hardware during the lockdown and the holidays.
The most bothering part is, without the “network problems” I would not have switched off the Nucleus to carry it to another room with the new network components. Now I’ve spent a crazy amount of money on new network equipment but have to use my MacBook as Roon core. And the hilarious part is, my MacBook runs with the old network equipment and wifi - and is more stable than Nucleus+ plus top-notch network gear.
The two best options for me are:
A: I get a new Nuclues+ delivered so that I can use its original packaging to send the broken one back.
B: I get my money back.
