How You Can Get Service

In the event that the owner needs to return the unit to Cary Audio for service or repair of a possible defect, he must follow the following steps:

  1. Create a new account or login to our Customer Service Center to obtain a Return Merchandise Authorization (RMA) number. Once the account is set up or you have logged in, click on “Open New RMA” to begin entering the information to create an RMA that is needed to return or exchange a product. You will be given an RMA number, which must appear on the label of the box you ship back.

Limitation of Implied Warranties

All implied warranties, including warranties of merchantability and fitness for particular purchase, are limited in duration to the length of this warranty.

Exclusion of Damages

Cary Audio’s liability for any defective product is limited to repair or replacement of the product at Cary Audio’s option. Cary Audio shall not be liable for damage to other products caused by any defects in Cary Audio products, damages based upon inconvenience or loss of use of the product, or any other damages, whether incidental, consequential, or otherwise.

How State Law Relates to the Warranty

Some states do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts and/or do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitations or exclusions may not apply to you.

This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights which vary from state to state.

If you are living outside of the United States, please consult your local dealer or distributor to determine the details of your local warranty.
