redcloud That's a little reassuring, great that they actually told you the problem has been identified, they accept its a flaw and they confirmed they have changed it for future units. But, I wish my support was as reassuring. Hopefully when they see my unit once it's returned they will let me know that the issues with the knobs has been checked and future units will be sorted. I want to give the Stage another shot, but just need a little more confidence in it.
I think I will wait a while anyway as more and more issues by other users are being posted on here.
I wonder if you can request a "newly built" Stage when buying from Kemper instead of one of the first batch.
