Where is Singlepower? Where is Mikhail? - Page 16

post #226 of 1960
There have been a number of similiarly-themed threads on this subject (for Singlepower & other amp builders) over the past year or so. The good thing is that many people looking for an amp will be visiting Head-Fi & have an opportunity to read them all & decide for themselves whether the waiting is worth it to them, or if they should choose to buy elsewhere.

It's all about choice. If people have access to information, then they can make well-informed decisions about where to put their hard-earned dollars.

Whether the amp builder's practices improve or not, there should be less people caught unaware & complaining. Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.

I guess if others have had similar experiences in the past, there's nothing to worry about now and he's probably OK. Either way, I'd still like to complete my business with him. It'd be helpful if he had a receptionist.
Any luck for you?
None for my MPX

Mikhail is a great guy! one that sadly is overwork because of his great sounding amps! I sent him an email and he responded within 24 hours, so I guess I am lucky.

Well, got an email from Mikhail on the 25th of June saying that my ES-1 "should be finally on it's way shortly (within 12 to 15 days if my scheduling goes as planned)". Well, at least this time he put in a disclaimer at the end. Its already the 15th day and sadly I still havent heard from him yet.....

I received an email from him yesterday saying that he will give me an 'update' for my amp next week (and it should be back here by end of next week).

I really hope this happens

Mikhail's "it will ship soon" promises are worthless.

I asked specifically if upgrades for my two amps were fully completed and ready to ship before I sent him money. He said they were, so I paid.

This was in Feb. 2008. I sent the amps in for upgrades in Aug. and Sept. 2007.

It is now mid-July and still nothing. Are these the actions of a "great guy" and a reputable company?

To say that I am extremely disappointed with Single Power is a massive understatement.

Apologies for my lack of political correctness and/or tact, but it seems that for too many who worked for and paid (a lot of) hard-earned money...

i've ordered 3 times from mikhail in the past year and each time he was late in
sending off the packages... but, each time, he made up for the delays with
extra tubes, totaling up to $300+ now, to compensate... point being, i don't
think he'd do that if he could help it. he must really be in a bind waiting for
parts or he just doesn't have the man-power to get things done...

i feel your frustration and hope you get your amps soon.

SP

I bought my second SP amp from a member here a few weeks ago. I was going to have it made, but then thought back to how long it took for the first one.

All I have to say is, I hope SP gets it crap together. Mikhail sure makes some nice stuff.

BTW, I got such a nice deal on the MPX3 amp and tubes I was actually happy I bought second hand. Instead of buying new. SP amp are built like tanks, so I had no fear of buying it second hand. (I think I am actually the 3rd owner)

Didnt you tell Mikhail to hold off shipping until you saw the pictures of the upgrades? Didnt you get those pictures quite some time ago? I thought you had told Mikhail to hold off shipping the amps even though they have been complete for a while?

I'm in the market for a amp for a second system and I was considering SP among several other manufacturers. Mikhail might be a very nice person but after reading this thread, he won't be getting my money.
