For what it's worth:

I usually find repair techs to be the most honest arbiters of information pertaining to product. Whether it be used automobiles, current technology, or yes...even clarinets.

It's too easy to say, "I love brand xyz because I've bought 50 of them, and they're all great!" or to say, "I hate brand xyz because I've bought 50 of them, and they all were terrible!" (All the while being unwittingly blind to our own biases.)

Good third party repair personnel usually don't have much incentive to push bad solutions. Their job is to get your product running the best they can, and keep it that way - otherwise, they'll lose customers. It's why I put the brand of parts in my car that I do. It's why I put the brand of computer components in my computer that I do. I find repair personnel whom I trust, and I get their opinions. If I'm buying a used car - I don't go to the dealer to ask about dependability of that model, nor do I obtain this information from the seller - I go to my mechanic. etc.

Sure, there are shady repair folks who shill for a company in order to obtain a kickback - that's why I said that I use "Good" repair personnel "whom I trust."

From Chris' candid posts over the years, I trust Chris...and...

"I hate brand xyz because I've tried many of them, and they were all terrible!" Hehe!  ;)
