Hello,

Finally some happy news from me regarding the Creative Labs Gigaworks S750 !!!

These guys at:

http://www.rbheerlen.nl/

Managed to repair it !

They ordered some parts, and repaired it the same day ?!

Amazing !

And I can verify it sounds fantastic !

Maybe my unit was an easy repair or maybe not, I don't know... one guy told me they ordered some kind of "supply part".

The big somewhat fat (:)) guy with the red face probably doesn't know much about electronics, but the bold guy does he claims 40 years of experience !

I believe him ! especially now too !

I think they have "personel" allowing them to do quick repairs ???

Anyway... if you have a "dead" gigaworks S750 too and you live in The Netherlands or Germany or Belgium you could give these guys a try cause it worked for me !

And best part of all it was pretty cheap only 95 euros !

Can't go wrong with that !

If they cannot fix it for some reason they would have charged me 15 euros.

But they insisted they can repair anything ! :)

I'd take them up on that offer if I was you with a dead gigaworks s750 !

I also asked the big fat red-faced guy if they will accept more units for repair and he said YES ! No problem ! Not sure if the bald guy will agree with that, but probably yeah... good for bussiness ! ;)

Sigh... for now I am skeptical... I expect the unit to die soon again... I don't know if I should trust the repair... but I will continue enjoying the fixed unit and blasting the shit out of that subwoofer and electronics ! LOVING IT !

I have 3 months of warranty on repair... I have not yet opened it up to see what they did to it... Maybe in the future I will, especially if it breaks down again.

For now may the subwoofer power be with YOUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

BOOOOOOOOOM
Bye,
Skybuck ! ;)

P.S.: I had to re-calibrate the speaker assignment via THX to swap "side left" with "subwoofer" since creative labs cables a bit different ! ;) :)


WIEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE ONE TOTALLY THRILLED SKYBUCK !

P.S.2: So glad I did not listen to my mother which always wants me to throw away stuff ! LOL... No way I am throwing away a THX certified Lucas Arts approved system ! =DDD HIHIHIHIHIHI

BYYYYYYYEEEEEEEWIEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

I was playing X-Com 2 The Chosen or something... there was a cool mission with protecting resistance fighters and suddenly I heard this loud POP.

I think something exploded inside the subwoofer.... or maybe the fuse blew...

Not sure yet what happened, but the Gigaworks S750 is now dead !

It was fun while it lasted.

Fortunately I have 3 months on repair... I am gonna bring it back... see if they can fix it again.

I guess this normal... fixing part by part until it hopefully doesn't die anymore :)

Sound/subwoofer was pretty cool but I think a new/replacement sub might be just as fine if not finer... I think the speakers probably worked a little bit better on the denon receiver but this could also be because of slightly different volume levels... turning the volume up via control pod seemed to give same quality.

Bye,
Skybuck.

As I suspected, the fuse of this device blew, probably saving my life from electric shock (or fire as it says on the back) ? Hmmm...

The brown glue does not seem to be removed by repair company, me not to happy/thrilled about that.

I took some pictures of their repair job. They seemed to have cleaned off some brown glue from a blue thingy... or even replaced it... I wonder if more damage now occured to this device or not...

The big black capacitators are still surrounded with brown glue, this has to be cleaned off I think.

Here are recent pictures of internals of device and blown fuse:

Tomorrow I will take it back to repair shop.

Skybuck.
