No longer a fan of Roland A-800. My unit developed a known firmware fault. Roland UK won't service it themselves. Roland recommended agent (seems like a nice helpful guy, but not equipped for affordable repairs on lower end gear like this) had never looked at one, ever!
Q: Can you guess why?
A: It would cost about the same as a new unit to get it serviced, or even just fitting new PCBs yourself, the boards are that expensive. So owing to a firmware fault that takes months to develop it is landfill, or spares and repairs.
