What amazes me is that a manufacturer makes a statement and people talk about "proof" and questions "put to rest". I have never had any reason to doubt Mikhails word-his dealings w/ me were fair and square. But given the questions raised here I seriously doubt that the naysayers are going to take an interested party's word as gospel. That's the bitch about accusations and innuendo. The proof will be in the pudding and I hope it's there so everyone can shut up and be convinced.
So basically are you saying that what is proven or disproven about build quality, reliability, safety, tube class operation, warranty, that people will still not believe it????? Or have I misinterpret you?????
If all of these factors were proven I don't think headfiers would pursue it maybe one or two but for a majority they would move on regardless of the outcome. It's just when there is no definitive word that people want to know the truth whether the allegations are true or false. Please do not judge headfiers in the pursuit, it is the only way to stop this. If they don't ask anything, that's worse because nothing will ever happen to make thing better
