Where is Singlepower? Where is Mikhail? - Page 12

From high end to super high end

The biggest shame for me is that SP has gone from high-end to super high-end. As far as I can tell, they are spending most of their time on $10-$20,000/pop items instead of their old bread and butter MPX, MPX3 and Supra.

Also given all the delays I am surprised that more people have not started modding their own units.

I mean how many of these ES-2s can one guy make in a day?

How about how many in two years? I agree with you as well regarding from just highend to super highend.

No luck either Tom.

He still needs to recable my second pair of R10s and ship me the Enigma (PS for my actively shielded cables).

Wow, now I have a real problem. My ES-1 just went silent.... I don't want to give it up for a year... :-(

I just got the PSU (20A) open. Man I hate those little hex screws he uses. I don't see anything, so I may have to start doing some testing with the multimeter. See if I can find anything obvious......

Oh well.

Cheers,

My deepest condolences. Hopefully, the problem is very minor and can be fixed quickly - very quickly. Best of luck!

Something like 0.005...
From ordering it might very well take 3-6 months before its ready for shipment to you. If not more.

Given that the ES1 has taken more than 9 months and counting and counting and counting...., the ES2 would likely take just as long or longer.

Hmmm, will waiting for a humble MPX repair qualify me to join this party?

Cheers,
Could you give us some more information on this. It went silent as in both channels died and so did the power led's? Did you check the fuse and all the other basics?

Man, am I glad I put my money elsewhere.

One thing I must say. I am glad I stuck with SinglePower.

Despite all the frustration and aggravation, these two amps are unbelievable. The sound being produced is just so amazing that the wait is slowly fading from my consciousness.

After lots of tube-rolling I have gotten the sound dialed into my tastes. Listening to the SDS-XLR/R10 combo with Classical or guitar, the timbre of the instruments is exquisite. It seems like the wood enclosures of the R10 produce these string sounds better than the HE90. For Classical, the R10s are winning right now. For everything else, the HE90s are in front. Then if I want a slightly heavier/bassier presentation, I go for the L3000. These two amps make all these phones sing sublimely.

Yeah the R10's with jazz and classical are awesome. I don't listen to either very much so hence, HE90 all the way. Without trying to derail the OP's original intention of this thread, can you quickly state what tubes you use?
