Matrix M-Stage amp review: simple, cheap, and excellent. - Page 10

post #136 of 4770
I ordered one from him the other day and he e-mailed me the next day saying that they were out of stock and that they would be getting a new, upgraded version in about 3 weeks.

I couldn't wait that long since I need something immediately, so I didn't ask any questions about what was changing, but it might be worth looking into for anyone that's considering one of these. You might want to hold off a few more weeks!

He also sells on eBay but at a higher price (probably due to eBay fees).
I haven't dealt with him in the past, but his eBay feedback is OK (seller: ns_fm_transmitter).

Based on personal experiance I can only say good things about coolfungadget's service.

He is probably counterfeiting a new model. He admits they ripped off Little Dot. I emailed Tam and am waiting for replies. Now i want o know if new model is coming out also.

Just read your most recent posts in this thread. Sounds like I got off easy, haha. I told him I couldn't wait that long for another version and to cancel my order and please process a refund and he did so immediately.

I haven't ordered any amp yet. I remembered the Hlly guy from the thread with a Litlle Dot amp and for me to save 30.00 wasn't worth it. If I do order the amp it will be from Jeff Tam as he feedback is 100 percent. I still have,t decided between the Matrix or the Audio GD c2c.

i hope the price down to $249.95.

I'm not sure why the price went up, but really it's worth it even for the extra $20. Maybe shipping costs have increased?

As for the HLLY seller, I think I'd rather spend the few extra bucks and buy from an excellent seller like Mr. Tam than chance it with an unknown. He stole the entire Ebay listing (including my review link) and didn't bother to even take his own pics or change a thing.

I agree. Just waiting for Mr Tam to answer my question regarding shipping and stock and I want to order. Curious if Hlly is right in saying a new model is coming out.

I pulled the plug and ordered the Matrix from Coolfungadget this morning, I ordered it in black and Jeffrey emailed me last night that it would ship Monday. Looking forward to getting the amp.

Thanks for the update - I had ordered from J Tam last week (supposed to have shipped Friday) and was concerned as well when I read that post about a new version coming out. The $20 difference to buy from a respected seller was more than enough reason.

Curious Frank I - any reply from Jeffrey about that new model coming soon? I assume since you ordered it it may have been bogus.

He did not email me regarding any new models yet. I just ordered the Matrix because of all the favorable reviews especially driving the K701. I wouldn't believe anything that Hlly guy said as he is probably builkding his own counterfeit as he did with the Litlle Dot models.

I noticed there is power cable now included which would explain the increase in price. Also curious to gain setting you used on AKG 702 as that is the main reason I purchased this amp plus your outstanding review.

Right. It's also because the shipping cost and parts price increased.
