Hi,

I wasn't speaking of you, i was speaking of the guy who originally posted the rumor.

Ouch - thanks for the clarification. That is a pretty big rumour to be throwing around.

Didn't really realize/notice that SP amps came with serial numbers... just curious, where do I look on my Extreme for it?
post #411 of 1953
I'd like to know also, where is the serial on my Supra?
post #412 of 1953
It's inside somewhere I think. I am not sure they all have one. Ask Mikhail.

I've just looked fot the original post but couldn't find it.
No matter whether the serial number mixup is true or not (or maybe it was accidental, **** happens), such badly proven accusations aren't necessary and might even raise pity.
There's more than enough proven wrongdoing.
No one except Mikhail knows what's really going on (and disorganized as he seems to be maybe even he doesn't know the state of his company) but for everyone experienced with small businesses his behaviour smells like desperate and somewhat dishonest attempts to rescue a sinking ship.
All those notorious shameless lies in order to gain time.Accepting new orders in order to get fresh money although he is long overdue with old orders.And I bet he doesn't reimburse for the interest rates in all those cases where he keeps customer money for longer periods of time than was originally determined.
This borders on fraudulent behaviour.

Or he is a complete idiot.

Either way, this company should be on the black list of everyone in his right mind no matter how charming he is face to face.

What puzzles me is that members get screwed over, again and again, and still some are trying to defend the indefensable.
This is a weird psychological phenomenon.

I don't get it either. Why would anyone defend someone who treats fellow Head-Fi members like that?
post #415 of 1953
Well I don't think he's a complete idiot: One can rarely design world-renown amps and then fail to spell their name correctly. I just think he's just horribly over-worked and over-burdened. I don't get the feeling it's malicious at all. But expanding an indemand company and managing people is quite different than managing machines and designing circuits. Like I said, I wish him luck, it would be a loss to the head-fi world to lose him. That said, I find his business practices - and here I am talking strictly about his customer communication skills and perhaps business organization skills - not exactly confidence building. And the long unpredictable wait times certainly rasie questions in my mind about purchasing from him. Which is a shame because I would love to buy a balanced extreme or mpx.

I think why we are seeing people defending him, and people like rooting him, is that his amps really are world class. I think his shop would have folded up long ago if his amps didn't produce results. Am I right?

has this changed?

You are right.Maybe some of the posts here would fit better into the well deserved "Buyer beware"-sticky.
As far as I'm concerned: I do own a defective MPX3.
Under these circumstances I'd rather throw it into the rhine and this way I can at least enjoy to watch it swimming than ship it to the U.S. for service.
Does this qualify?

That's what I meant.You are defending him.Poor guy, the charming circuit genius is overburdened.

Come on, he doesn't just underestimate lead times which would be excusable.
He's flat out lying directly into the face of customers for instance by claiming that he has already completed an amp in order to get the second installment when he clearly knows it isn't true.This is not malicious?

I think only the mod can answer your question.

My defective MPX is at SP and I am going through the 'communication with Mikhail' zen or voodoo or whatever thingy. The last I heard my MPX is sounding great - not much information in there, and not even a completion date estimate :P

Oh well, good luck to you finding a local tech - maybe you can ask Nikongod to give you necessary info.
post #419 of 1953
Well if he says it is sounding good as least someone is enjoying it.

It's always easiest to kick someone when they are down. To the extent that anyone has any thoughts about doing so, please don't. If you have a legitimate and relevant story to tell, by all means do so. But don't enter the thread as a bystander interested only in seeing a good old fashioned internet discussion board ****-storm...that serves no good purpose in this situation.

Thanks to all for your consideration with regard to your posts in this thread thus far. Let's keep it that way.
