This. Although if @rockfordreplay's distributor is forcing him to buy a shaker he doesn't want, that's not cool.
The dealer is cool... The back and forth was in e-mail.
I initially mentioned my concern about the shaker with other order requests. The dealer's reply included an add-on comment not seeing my concern. I then, felt the need to explain in an another reply. The dealer acknowledged understanding in my thought and decision and included further input countering my worry. I didn't feel pressure to maintain the shaker, but I do find the 2 positions interesting;
- If vibration 'can' lead to premature failure - don't add the shaker.
- Electronics have been shaken for a long time without issues - the shaker wont hurt anything.
I can't say whats right or wrong. For me; The machine purchase is crazy expensive and I do worry. Standard testing may provide confidence.
