Unfortunately, there don't seem to be any competence requirements for MOTs...

There also aren't any warnings when it comes to cack-reviews from members who hold sway over opinion. Recommending a cable which is faulty to other members is not on.

I find that slightly disturbing as well. The fact that he was originally willing to ship out garbage already indicates a degree of dishonesty which (in my experience) is not something that is easily rectified.

Warren audio is probably sending his best samples to the high-profile reviewers. It might not really be indicative of what everyone else is getting IMO.

Didn't Rick say that he had outsourced all soldering? That rather contradicts the new soldering station statement. FYI, I've cleanly soldered 24 AWG wires onto HD-800 connectors with a $20 soldering iron and a pair of "helping hands". It can't be done in a rush, that's for sure and I wouldn't try it when feeling tired.

While I respect HeadphoneAddict for his efforts on Head-fi, I do agree his re-posting the review was irresponsible and that thread should simply be deleted.

Well I guess HeadphoneAddict (Larry) is the reason why bought from Rick of Warren Audio, I ordered the X-10 on November 19th, Rick E-Mailed me last Saturday and said he would overnight the X-10 if he hasn't already shipped it. Canada Post says it hasn't been shipped, so I guess he will overnight a great X-10 this Monday.

 

Had I read this thread I would not of ordered from Rick, so I hope at this point Rick does follow up on his offer and made a high quality HE6 Cable.  In any case I will be reporting back.

Warning !!!!!

 

Before you buy don't do as I did and take the good experiences from just one very high profile member. Run searches on the vendor you are interested in buying from. In the case of Warren Audio read what other members have to say about Warren Audio before you get involved.

 

I welcome PMs from moderators or members of Head-Fi.

 

I do apologies for posting this in two different threads, but I think I should follow up on my post.

All you have to do is call Canada Post as I did and ask them to help you. They will ask you for your address, zip code and tracking number.

Rick did ship something Monday late night, I have confirmed this on Post Canada tracking site but not as he offered to do with overnight shipping.

 

Matter of fact,  I do feel petty for this guy and I am moving on as long as I get what I ordered in working condition.

sillysally: When I made my previous post, I was an ordinary member, which is worth noting.  While I can't go into detail, as far as I know the issues mentioned in this thread have been resolved. That being said, if someone has an issue with a MOT or sponsor, they are welcome to PM myself or other moderators or administrators about it. Other than that, I wouldn't stress over shipping being a couple of days late. It's a lot harder for a small business consisting of one or two people to be consistent with these things than larger, more organised ones.

No Sir I don't have issues with anybody. As I said I have moved on.

btw, just for the record the shipping notice that I received from Paypal was dated 11/23/10 but was not shipped till 12/06/10. I don't want you to think I am just a cry baby.

Fair enough. A few people/companies have been printing shipping labels, but not sending the products straight away.

 

After having a think about it, I'm going to close this thread, as the original issue was resolved. No conspiracies here, it's my own decision (and I'm not deleting the thread). People are always welcome to PM me if they have any questions or complaints.

 

Edit: Further issues have been posted in his feedback thread.
