I think there are a number of them out there. I do not think that simply because they haven't created $15k behemoths (yet) that they do no have the skills nor inclination to do so. A bespoke amp can likely be designed and built by quite a few companies (and not just strictly HP amp builders either).

SP apparently installed an incompatible part in the power supply. Also, the biasing never worked correctly, and one of the screw threads on a spiked foot was too long.

I'm out over $11,000. I waited 11.5 months for the amp to be built. It died 2.5 months later. Now another 2 months of waiting and waiting. A month ago, SP said that it was "done." Two weeks ago, the delay was due to "shipping."

Since then, SP has not returned my calls.

Seriously now, who is going to be the first to file suit against Mikhail? It's time for the angry mob.

When you get an advance tracking number, wait a day and then go to USPS - The United States Postal Service (U.S. Postal Service) and enter the number where it says "track and trace", if nothing comes up, then be 99.99999% certain, it was not dropped off for shipment. These numbers, by the way, are generated automatically as a result of entering shipment data into USPS by the shipper, a customer of USPS.. It does not come from USPS.

No, but considering a CKKIII runs for $385 - over 3 times the basic parts cost - I dread to think how expensive a fully loaded B22 would be

[EDIT] Mind you, their Mini3 pricing seems fairly reasonable.

Rumor has it that Kevin Gilmore is willing to repair a few SP amps for disgruntled customers, but not if he is inundated. Is this true?

Parts cost times three is on the low side for a normal retail company to cover labor costs and you see a lot higher margins here without anybody complaining.

Kevin was willing to rectify the basic design flaws of a couple of ES amps but I doubt that he's going into business fixing SP amps according to a conversation that we had on this very matter.
