Two quick questions about the Kenwood TS-2000:

Does anyone know if newer models have resolved the frequent failure of some ceramic filters after a period of time no longer covered by warranty?

Also, Kenwood is currently offering a $200 rebate on this model.  Is this particularly good or is this something to expect on a regular basis?

The problem only affected a limited serial number range of units.  New units should not have the problem.  Mine had the problem and four new filters cost me $22.

Kenwood has been repairing those in the affected serial number range for free.  Go to this web site and put in the 3 digits and you will know if yours in the serial number run that was affected  http://www.quartzfest.org/php/main.php?TS2000_Date

As far as rebates go, they all offer rebates from time to time.
