Broken Moog, Broken Heart

So I got my birthday present to myself, the one I’d been saving for all summer, the Moog synth I’ve always wanted:

I plugged it in right away and turned it on. The LCD didn’t show up, which was weird. There was no sound. Then I noticed the burning smell. Short story long, I had to immediately box it up and ship it back to North Carolina for repair as it was bad out of the box. They aren’t even covering my shipping back to the factory, and I won’t see it for around three more weeks. I noticed a bit of solder splash coming out from under the front panel bezel, so it looks like a manufacturing defect to me. Super weak!
