Repair/Replacement of Spark 40-pop on shutdown

My 1 1/2 year old Spark developed the squelch popping sound upon shutdown. This amp was hardly used and very well taken care of. I was going to send it back for 60.00 for repair but found out many many people have the same issue and lots of the amp soon developed it even after replacement. I asked about if they upgraded components that may address further issues.
After some back and forth with tech support I decided not to send my amp in for repair/replacement for 60.00. I brought up the users who had repeated problems after the repair and they said essentially that they will repair it once, but if it reoccurs it on the user and nothing they can do. That’s not good enough for me. I cannot recommend the spark 40 simply due to reliability issues. As long as it works it’s great but they fail too often. I will be trying other companies in the future
