Where is Singlepower? Where is Mikhail? - Page 99

Let's bow our heads and give a moment of silence for the grief caused this concerned and well intentioned member.

If I tell someone about my amp, I will tell them what I think of the amp. If someone looks at the bottom of my post, they will see the warning. I will also ask that if they are interested in an SP amp, to buy here from a member. That supports the community. Should all of the members who have an SP product throw our amps away because Mikhail made them? You want to devalue our investment for the sake of ...... what is it again?

If your heartache feels that a positive comment about our equipment is supporting Mikhail, seek council.


Icarium, I am fully in your court in your dealings here. I just get tired of malcontents piling on.

You give him more credit than I. The boards are squarewave boards. This has been confirmed to me by at least 1 other amp maker, an amp designer and numerous DIYers.

2 boards are used for balanced output on the "reference" section and 4 boards are used in balanced/push pull for the "fun" section.

He only has one solid state design as far as I know. if he's using the same amp in a 15000 dollar amp versus a 1000 dollar design... well I'm not confident about what's in the mid ground with the Transparency.

Sorry but crediting a dude who designed and put together that power supply as a "great designer" is giving him far too much credit.

Can you provide a link? I'd like to ask this person how he's getting in touch with Mikhail, because I certainly cannot find him.

That's exactly what I expect. I expect Head-Fiers to boycott his products. Why use a product designed and made by someone you know who has stolen tens of thousands of dollars from customers? But most certainly stop using em, there are other amps to use, this whole SP are best crud, is that, crud. We're talking tube amps, not exactly the most complicated devices, I don't need to hear a SP amp to know when I read bullcrap. I don't use products made by people or companies I don't support. And yes that means I have very few possessions, only what I need.

P.S. I think you used up your five minutes for today.

Why do you take such pleasure in belittling people? Does it make you somehow feel superior? I've noticed a few particular SP owners in this thread do this often to people who disagree with them. Not just to me. Take your five minutes and quote some Hubbard to someone who cares.

Arrogance, that's what this thread has plenty of, especially from some of the SP owners.

Absolutely.

So why is his nonsense being tolearated? This is not the only thread where mbd2884 has seen fit to spew his venom. People have been warned and had their posts deleted in this thread for far less.

The post title had a reference to MPX3 in it. Why not search for the words "MPX3" over posts in the last few days? I was also a bit surprised i must admit, but the post didn't amount to much and I moved on.

Good luck.

mbd2884 why do you keep crapping on these threads that you have nothing to do with? I'm just a lurker here - you should be too. Please, please go away!

How about because most SP owners cannot afford to just stop using his products especially if you like the way they sound? Why would I sell my SP amp just to go to another amp that I may or may not like? Just to satisfy people like YOU??? Please.....

I agree that Mikhail is a real big d-bag for robbing people of a LOT of money but as much as I feel horrible for the people he screwed over, that's not enough for me just to sell my SP amp, not even close. The only reasons I would sell any piece of audio equipment is because I need the money or because I want to upgrade/I'm not satisfied with the sound.

Several posts ago, I made a comment to the effect that this thread would have the most value if comments about SinglePower were made mostly by SinglePower customers. I've not changed my mind with regard to that...and IMHO the relative value of this thread is dwindling fast thanks to the "contributions" of a few.

To those with no skin in this game who insist on stirring it up just to stir it up - and you know who you are - please take it somewhere else.

Hrm... I did a search and didn't come up with any mention of it. Perhaps you were referring to the guy who wanted another amp to compliment his MPX3. Anyhow, I haven't heard of anything happening after tom_hankins (forgive me if it's spelled wrong) and icarium got their amps.

The MPX3 post is mine. I have had very limited experience with head amps (my only other amp has been the ATH-DH3000). I enquired about amps that were similar in quality. I now realize that I should wait since I do not have any headphones at the moment! I'm waiting for the HD800 and PS1000. But I very much appreciate the helpful suggestions made by people. The derogatory remarks made mbd2884 were uncalled for. I asked a simple question and mbd2884 takes time out of his day to be insulting. I do not understand people's motiviation. mbd2884 s not always like this, sometimes he's helpful and other times just trying to pick a fight. Moreover, I don't agree with mbd2884's assertion that all Singlepower amps should be discarded because of Mikhails unethical and likely illegal business practices. Why should I lose money on my purchase? Is it a show of solidarity if all owners of Singlepower through away there amps (and money)? Why should I be punished? There is an error in the logic. I did purchase it from an experience Head-Fi member. I was aware of the problems with Mikhail and any repairs is a great worry. However, I cajoled luvdunhill (the previous owner) to help me if the amp needs repair. And why should luvdunhill be punished? He needed funds to build a electrostic amp. Why should he not realize the value in his amp. I would argue the converse. It is better for many people to enjoy the Singleower amps as long as Mikhail does not receive any additional money. He alreay received payment when they were originally bought. So lets enjoy them until they fall apart. I think it is more important to not purchase any new amps from Mkhail as obviously he would benefit. To this end, 6moons has placed a warning on the review of the MPX3 6moons audio reviews: SinglePower MPX3 stating "Alert: It has since come to our attention that SinglePower and its proprietor have a poor track record for taking people's money without delivering in a timely manner or at all. This link to HeadFi details some of the evidence." And it links to two discussion threads about Mikhail. This approach is more effective as it will hopefully hurt new sales.

i wonder when that Alert was put up.
