Too late... he would already know from this thread.

If his site is still active, one presumes he may still be taking orders from prospective customers.

Just need to gin one up and go for it. How would anyone separate a would be buyer from here from a random one through his site?

I thought I read somewhere that he's got an overseas/Asian clientele.

All of the aggrieved should do the same. As well as contact the CO AG.

Yes, yes, yes. Enough attention and something will happen.

Yes...something did happen.

Disputed my $11,300 purchase through paypal/American Express. $6,500 refunded prompty from paypal (through AmEx) within about a month of dispute. $4,800 recovered directly through AmEx after disputing 3 times, sending copies of email correspondences, sales invoices, phone conversations. (I paid half first and the rest after Mikhail told me my amp was done in December of 2008)

Order date for amp/cables: 9/23/08. AmEx says to dispute within 60 days but how can you do this if it is a custom build that is going to take months to complete if at all? (can't dispute a charge online automatically after 60 days - CALL THEM) - I think I disputed in like February over the phone and argued my case.

Suggestion - Dispute through paypal/credit card immediately. You may get lucky and have enough evidence to prove your case that you do not want an amp, if you even receive an amp who knows if it will work and just want your money back because this guy can't be trusted. Mikhail built some serious amps in the past but now its BS.

I hope this helps.

^ Some good news. I've found that Amex tends to be relatively helpful in these situations.

WoW...I've been away from Head-Fi for a while (10 months at least) and I thought this thread would have died. I'm sitting here shaking my head. I got back to about page 112 and had to stop searching for a positive experience. It also looks like most people have dumped their Singlepower gear.

*Sigh*

At this point, Even though I really wanted a Maestro as my next upgrade, I would have to see a drastic improvement in service and responsiveness before I ever sent Mikhail money again. With that being said, what other amps rival the sonic quality of Singlepower in the $2000-$5000 range?!

I think you would be better served making a new thread so that this one can remain on track and not get threadjacked.

That wasn't my intention...making a new thread.

After 100's of pages and multiple years, I don't think anyone could be totally accused of thread jacking.

No problem. Didn't see it as a jack. Just mentioning it...

Hey neilvg, did you ever get your amp fixed?
My Concerto (Maestro-ES-1) is in the shop now.

SO, just to get this straight...Mikhail is out of business and no longer covering the amps under warranty, or he is still in business and serving clients regardless of the lead time?
