What amazes me most is how many SP users continue to defend him. At this point, who cares if your SP amp sounds good or not, supporting someone as despicable as Mikhail is just wrong. What matters is even less is if you had good relations years ago, its about now, what has happened in the last few years. Just very disheartening from some of Head-Fi community IMO.
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.
