The problem (as best as I can describe it) started happening about a week after use. When we turn on the unit, the music will play but only for a while before going quiet - no sound. The time it takes to go quiet varies. Sometimes, it's very gradual, over several minutes it will just start getting quieter and quieter until we can't hear it anymore. Sometimes, it's almost instantaneous - we can hear one or two words of the song before it goes quiet. Once quiet (or effectively mute) the only way we can get it play music again or hear sound is to power off and power on the device to start it again. We would have to do this about 10-12 times before the until will play music at the desired volume for any amount of extended play and even then, the volume will very slowly decrease over time.
I've sent the above description to the manufacturers as per their instructions and I may be able to recommend the product depending on their actions so we'll see yet.
Since posting this, I've contacted Vers directly. They have shipped a new unit with a return label. Upon receipt of the new unit, I will ship them back the defective unit. Hopefully, this solves my problem BUT nonetheless, I'm very happy with the customer service from Vers. I have no problems recommending their product now.
(Update 2 - Had to delete my review and repost it with the appropriate star/product rating)
It's been about 2 weeks now that we've received our new Vers 2x direct from the manufacturer and so far so good. One thing that is for sure, their customer support is the best I've ever received for any product.Read more ›
2nd unit was also defective - this time it simply shut itself off after playing for 2 or 3 minutes. 3 sets of shipping costs down the drain. Avoid this product at all costs.
Cherry finish is really nice. (The product is actually lighter wood than the main photo on Target - the should re-shoot it. You can see higher-res images at: [...]
The outstanding feature of this player is the quality of the sound. The sound is very clean, and is particularly impressive with high notes. The second major plus is the quality and appearance of the cherry veneer cabinet. The rest of the cabinet (i.e. under the veneer) is also wood, and the sound makes that clear. No plastic ever sounded like this.
On the minus side: It would be nice if the controls on the remote control were duplicated on the cabinet itself so that one isn't remote-dependent. A tad more volume would be welcome, as would the option of running it on batteries, to make it truly portable.
As for the price, it seems expensive until you compare it with the competition. In summary, very good sound and very good looks. No bells. No whistles. Just quality.
P.S. I withdraw the comment about the volume. I have since learned that the volume control on the cabinet itself AND the control on the remote must BOTH be set to max volume. At that point, the volume is fine -- and still distortion-free.
