The lack of communication from Dr. Xin (when he has fairly easy channels of communication already in place) does impart a bizarre quality to the handling of these long-standing back orders for Xin amps.
BushGuy has posted above that he is aware of amps Dr. Xin has shipped which have not been posted on this thread (and for which Dr. Xin has not updated the order number in the "Currently Shipping" thread in the "Support" section of his own forum over on fixup.net). It is good to know that Dr. Xin has been giving some attention to fulfilling his backlog of orders since 1/22/2009. And, it is SOMEthing, rather than NOthing.

He has a spot in his shopping/order page or cart for updating credit card, by making a very tiny charge to your new card and authorizing him to use that card for the previous order.

Glad to share the little that there is TO share. The landing/walk on the moon was a small step for man, a giant leap for mankind. Well, sure, once you GET the man on the surface of the moon, the step is a small step. Seems like a pretty giant-sized leap to me from the surface of the Earth up to the surface of the Moon, though. Receiving our Xin amp order will be a small step for mankind, and a giant leap for both Xin and the person having their order fulfilled. I'm still very excited about the prospect of receiving and hearing a Reference B (or C) 5, which, last I heard, ended up being the default Reference after all of the trials last Winter. The completion of those trials was fueled, to no small degree, by the dogged determination, irrepressible good cheer and indefatiguable persistence of mrarroyo. Without Miguel's skills and efforts, those trials of 5 numbered versions of each of 5 lettered Reference configurations would still be under way. At least that hurdle has been bounded. Three cheers for mrarroyo!!! Hip, hip, hooray!!!!! Hip, hip, hooray!!!!! Hip, hip, hooray!!!!!

Last winter, Ed, I recall that the roof of your shed was blown off, and that you needed to wait for the rain storm that blew it off to subside before you could go out to replace that roof. Some real life drama with some real financial stakes that you shared with us to help put the Xin amp drama in perspective. How did that either end up, or how is it going? What was the damage sustained by the contents of that shed while the roof replacement took place? Will this roof hold during this coming year's wind and rain storms?

Let it go. Any MOT that treats its customer's like this, doesn't deserve our business. I would advise anyone new, not to place an order with him, and I hope that anyone who already has, gets a prompt refund.
What possible reason would anyone have to buy something from a manufacturer that has treated his clientèle like this? He has basically taken thousand$ of dollars from members and not provided the product.

Please do not perpetuate Xin's business anymore. His amps sound good, but are not technically superior to what is being offered by other hard working, loyal, trustworthy MOT's that bust their butts to offer us top notch service.

Please note that I am not speaking as a moderator on Head-Fi's behalf, but rather as a consumer who sees immoral business practices being perpetuated.

i have to agree with aaron on this now, speaking as someone who has always been a fan of his amps and owned a few thus far and have had three on order for nearly two years, i am sticking with it until i get them, now i am so far in

but....

i echo aarons sentiments, certainly moreso for any new customers, knowing what i know now, there is no chance i would have placed those orders 'all those years back'

one thing that has not been mentioned: if you nowhave a Xin amp, or contemplate buying one, what happens if itbreaks? Return it to him and wait "X" years for it to be returned?? NAAAH. Too many amps on the market now with prompt and friendly builders who respond to your questions and needs.

Forget XIn and his amps

Three years Aug. for me BTW

You have no idea how my heart sank when you wrote the words "the water logged damage". I've had rooms in my house flooded with bad roof leaks (now, thankfully, repaired) - and few things sink a heart like surveying "the water logged damage" of items thought to be safe where they had been placed inside a room.

Just for fun, I'm going to check out the nwz s639f / mdr a34 items, and, if I can find them sufficiently inexpensive, I may just treat myself to a set of them to have a listen - after your catchy recommendation. (disclaimer) Like Ed, I, too, have no personal knowledge of nor financial connection with the folks at Sony.
