Why cant we all agree that he makes great amps and doesn't run an organized business. Everyone seems to want to equate good amps with running a good business.
Carrying on... oh yes... but I still post on this board and spend time looking stuff up. Yeah SP is a niche product, and that is part of the fun. He could have a better site, he could have more info and more updated stuff on this forum even. He has like 50 products, many of which are variations and extensions of one another... But in the end, it is the amps. I don't know if you've gone to a meet and heard an SP amp. It's all about the sound at the end -- and SP wouldn't be around if it was otherwise.
Now knowing this, waiting is the sad part of it. We SP amp owners have grown accustomed to it... but even we (or I here) as evidenced by this thread, reach our limits sometimes.
I've known Mikhail a long time, and I'd even go so far as to say he's a friend. This thread was created in part to get in contact with him, and in part to genuinely find out if he was alright---since he has been especially hermit-like as of late.
