A note to international customers
If you have purchased a powered hardware product please know that Music Direct sells products which are meant to be used in the USA on a 120VAC/60Hz circuit. If you are not in the USA, it is your responsibility to ensure that the unit receives the proper voltage via a step up and/or step down voltage converter. Using this device on a voltage or frequency that is not 120VAC/60Hz may cause damage to the unit and greatly increases the risk of bodily harm or even fire. Music Direct cannot be held responsible for damage to a unit that is not used on 120VAC/60Hz. Music Direct will also not be able to provide you with warranty service or a replacement unit.
Trade-Up Program Returns
Please note that once Music Direct receives your trade in, we consider the trade in final and the original item is not returnable. Music Direct reserves the right to dispose of your trade-in at any time after receipt and will not be liable for refunding for a traded-in unit. Please call and speak to an audio consultant for more information on how the trade-up program works.

To process returns as quickly and efficiently as possible, you'll need to request an RMA# within 60 days of the purchase date and we must receive the returned items within 15 days of issuing the RMA#.
