If anyone wants to be a "kool-aid drinker" and send the guy thousands of their hard-earned dollars, and wait months, years, with their dollars at risk - that's up to them - they have every right to do so... under our Constitution (though no one adheres to the rest of it these days).

Now just... "pipe down"... and "get back into line."
Perhaps you missed the earlier part of the 21st Century. Please try and catch up before inserting your foot in your mouth. No, no...your other foot

Do you also think that landing a man on the moon is still a giant hoax?

Some of us... that is, some of us... are just "terribly uninformed."

I've been waiting 3 weeks on a refund for some tubes that he never shipped. He responds to my emails but does not open his paypal account to send me my refund. I have had it with this non-sense.

He claims that he is "understaffed" while he is still selling amps that cost $5000 or more! Something is wrong here.

Or he probably too much perfectionnist to trust any technician who can probably help him to build and repair.

I really don't know.

I think he does not trust anyone else to do the work for him.

He might be building all these amps from scratch himself...

With the lead times, I would not be surprised.

This is what I think. I think since so many of the amps are new, and built around tubes he has not built in amps yet the R&D and bench times get out of control. Add to that his piss poor time management and constant changing of products during builds and its is a bad thing for us consumers. Then I think he rushes to meet deadlines (although he never does) and ends up shipping some new designs out before being well tested. Anyway, as soon as my preamp gets back it will be my last new purchase from Mikhail. Period.

Tom sorry to hear about this, when I saw Mikhail at the LA meet he seemed like he was much closer to getting back on track. Not buying from him new until when and if he get it back together may be the best course of action unfortunately. I've never owned one of his amps but many of the ones I've heard were outstanding.

They are not *that* complicated.
most repair-men who are familiar with tubes should be able to get it going.

The pre/amp I am waiting on is really nice. As good or better than my SDS-XLR. However when it got here he didnt put in the number of inputs I had asked for when I ordered it. Now it seems he has added two relay tubes to make sure I dont have any noise issues that might come up in the future. i should have just kept it and used rca/xlr adapters. Now its turned into another battle to get it back the second time. So in my case........to be continued.
BTW, I do think he has been getting alot more done since this thread came out. I probably would not have got the amp here the first time if it wasnt for the pressure Mikahil has gotten.
