While I can certainly understand your frustration (I'm not immune to that feeling my self), health and well being should be more important than material things

Has Dr. Xin stopped shipping all amps or only the Reference Series Amps?
post #1668 of 3957
All amps.

I kind of feel we are being a bit vicious over here ,accepted he is completely non responsive .But then going by the way he works I think some of the reason for the delay is also caused by his large-hearted ness shown by xin.I see no purpose in taking back amps already sold to modd it further and that to for free. This I am sure takes a lot of his time. If he has a newer version any one interested should go ahead and buy that instead of sending their orders ones to have it modified.
We have to accept the fact that he is a one man show and he has too many orders compared to what he could make, reason being not only quality but also the price. If he hikes up the price to match a PR II, I am sure he would find orders coming in are a lot more manageable and a neat profit margin to but then his intention is not that and I must appreciate him the price he is offering is definitely help ful to a lot of us not earning in dollars or pounds lol.
I accept the fact that he might not be able to reply to e mails as he would be flooded with them however if he could leave an update atleast on a weekly basis on either his forum or head-fi that would definitely help us. And would prevent his inbox from being bombarded with e mails.
I do notice its those who make payments via pay pal who seem to have serious issues, accepted as they are being charged for it immediately but then when we know how he works and when we know he does not charge our card why don’t we just place the orders via CC.I am sure our cards do provide us with adequate security in case of any mishaps.

** end of the day he has never advertised nor tried hard to make any of us buy from him its completely voluntary and I am sure a lot of us who have issues were aware of his working style yet we choose to place the orders so see no use in complaining. We just might frustrate the man such that he might just stop selling amps. Which I am sure a lot of us will not like.

I've seen a thread of a person who visited Xin at his home. I couldn't find it anymore and I do not remember who this person was -but he/she has a direct and i presume a personal link with Xin. Maybe it's an idea this person could contact Xin and check status/well beeing and update us all.

I also searched earlier for that thread earlier and couldn't track it down ...this does sound like a good idea though. I'm more concerned about Dr Xin than the amp situation and if someone could perhaps pay him a visit then that would reassure a lot of us. I'm guessing he's actually in full on tweak mode ........but it would be good if someone who knows where he lives could check to see he's ok...

I have visited with Xin a few times but I am no longer in the area. He was quite ill a few months ago and was not able to pull himself from bed. I hope he is not ill again. I have tried to contact him to no avail. I have personal phone numbers but no response. I am concerned and hope all is well.

At this time I would not send an order for anything until something is heard from Xin unless it is by means that does not take money until the order is filled..

As I remember that is jamato8 who visited Xin but he also don't seem to be able to get in touch with him. I generally used to be able to get responses from him every few weeks but have not heard anything for like 6 weeks now. Speaking as one who my self has experienced a minor depression due to stress I'm a bit worried as he is displaying all the signs I was told I did.

im not trying to be funny but i highly doubt XiN is anything other than ok, i am sure he has friends and family that are able to check on that should situtation call for it.

whilst it may be well intentioned and i care about peoples wellbeing, i find it just doesnt sit right and is a bit sickly that people scattered all over the world are wanting to knock at this poor sods door

although we have paid him monies in some case and placed an order, i cant help but feeling this personal interjection by a lot of us, is a bit well, disengenuious and unwarranted.

worried as we may be about our order. we do know do we not that this is exactly what happens and is just another cycle in the life of ordering a XiN amp.

if we want to be treated like customers of a business, lets keep it business.

To be honest I do not agree. Xin will probabely be aware about this thread and no one -what ever mode he is - will neglect this without even a word. Personally I think It looks like there might be a problem with Xin. I'm not asking anyone to knock on his door.The fact that even Jamoto8 can't get in thouch with him and Nc8000 does not get an answer indicates that he is not on air at the moment. He must have some friends here who knows him personaly and lives in the neighbourhood? Or knows anyone who does? I do not care about the money (payed through paypall and not with drawing the payment).

No one else does.

Doesn't Ken from ALO live in Portland? I think that's a 90 minute drive to Corvallis. Not sure if anyone knows Ken well enough to even bring it up.

lol, send Ken to find Xin.
post #1679 of 3957
sorry it was a stupid idea. hope he's ok.
post #1680 of 3957
This has gotten out of hand. Xin is a grown man, people. Concern is nice, but this is almost getting creepy. I'm sure he knows how to get help if he needs it.
