All this time I thought This thread could only have one of two conclusions. Mikhail would put his nose to the grindstone or loose most of his headphone amplifier buisness and now I realize I was completly wrong about this whole thing. The last few pages have demonstrated to me that Mikhail was never the problem. He is continually enabled by people who are willing to put up with exausting amounts of abuse from him and keep on comming. And Here I thought all of this shenanigans brought out into the open would force his hand and that is why I have been foaming at the mouth in this thread the whole time. I now realize the entire time I was doing this, most of the people in this thread wanted the opposite, they wanted others to continually offer positive spin no matter the circumstances as to feed the illness that makes someone purposely go through these ordeals with Mikhail. I really dont know if I should salute SP customers for going through so much for a headphone amplifier when we all know other nice amps are out there or if I should feel sorry for you guys? I think I will go with both since I am personally not capable of dealing with something as fustrating as dealing with Mikhail. Also, because even when you give him months for a few hours work some of you have received damaged goods, lies, disrespect, and indifference from Mikhail. Good Luck to outstanding and future customers.
Sorry if this ticks anyone off; it's honestly said out of sorrow, not anger. But it needed to be said.
EDIT--After posting this, I went back and read that the package was actually accepted. I still think this is an exception (it occurs maybe once in twenty times), so I'm not changing the gist of my point.
