I'm glad that you got in your amp. Just as a side update as well is that I got in touch with Mikhail and when we talked he said that my tubes are going out. I think Mikhail is clearing his backlog. Once again, thanks for the update on your amp and I'm glad it's sounding great. Looking forward to more impressions as well.

I'm still waiting for the tube adapters. Hopefully I get them today or sometime this week. I sure do hope Mikhail fixes his business as I may want to upgrade my SupraXLR sometime down the line. If not I may have to sell it and try a 307A.

Tom,

Congrats on the splendid news. What amp did you purchase? Any pictures? From your description, it seems that Mikhail continues to reach new sonic levels.

Hopefully, we will all receive our amps soon.

Bill

Great so 1 amp gets shipped and one set of tubes promised to ship--and this means that Singlepower is clearing their backlog and no doubt changing long held negative business practices--right! Seems like simply a bit of damage control to me.

x2.....completely agree.

I'm very happy to report that my Harmony XLR, ordered in March, arrived this week.

I've been avoiding this forum the last couple weeks because I was busy and depressed about not having my amp. My experience was remarkably similar to what people have reported here, but I'm glad I didn't see the thread until now -- it would only have magnified my anxiety.

After I've had a bit more time with the amp, I'll post impressions in the thread I started on it back in March. I've learned from experience that it's important not to make snap judgments about new gear, and I haven't yet compared it against my other equipment. But preliminary impression: This is one exquisite beast.

More good news. SP called yesterday evening. My ES-1 is done! It will be shipped early next week so that it will arrive next Saturday when I can be home.

I can't wait to hear it.

Kang, and panyncor.
Hope the wait ends up being worth it for you guys. It has for me.

How many angry people are left? I am seriously curious, because there's a lot of people talking who are not directly affected.

How many people have had their orders filled since this thread started? How many have not?

I'd also be interested in seeing how many people who were quite scathing in earlier posts who, after receiving their gear, do a complete flip and say they'd order stuff from SinglePower again.

I remember looking at the Xin forums and Xin posted saying how he was back and I was expecting people to crazy on him but all I read was "We're so glad you're back!" and "Now I can finally place my order with you!"


Huh?

Yeah...there was a Xin thread, I forget which one, where I made a pretty in-depth and detailed post as to how the whole thing with manufacturers disappearing, and how their clients as a community treat them, as seen be a relative "outsider".

It just boggles me as to how someone can spend thousands of dollars, go months without any contact whatsoever, and become increasingly angry and adamant that they'll never have anything to do with the company again - until their stuff shows up. Then they can't think of enough words to praise the equipment - which, ok, I can understand - but they also seem to completely gloss over the fact that for the past few months, they were close to removing the amp builder's liver with a fork. Not talking any specific members or companies, just the general feeling I get.

It makes me wonder if, at some point in the future, those people will order from the same manufacturer and have the same thing happen.....will they react the same? If so, what would they say if you showed them what they said at the end of their ordeal the last time they ordered something?

Just all those psychology classes I took in college kicking in, I guess.

Nevertheless this thread does serve a purpose.
A few members did finally get their amps, and everyone else is warned to stay away from this weird company or to live with the foreseeable hassles.

The difference is Mikhail (at the most) might go a few days without replies. Didnt Xin fall off the face of the earth? Also the reason I might do bussiness with Mikhail again, is because of all the products from almost all the headphone and preamp builders here and in the speaker forums. His have once again proved to be the ones i like the most. If I do order again, i will set up some different rules that will have to be met both by Mikhail and myself.

Once upon a time....

I'ts realy painfull to see how information and desinformation can so easily cohabit in the same thread. It's a game that even sub-morons can decode easily.

I take comfort in knowing, after all these years reading this kind of threads, one thing: the vast majority of readers, I mean the silent ones, are able to see it for what it is .

Amicalement
