Nik and I had reached agreement for him to sell me an EAR HP-4 for $1500. He named the price, and I accepted. I found out this morning that he had received an increased offer from another buyer. I later saw a post from another Head-Fier who believes that Nik is selling him the amp. Since two people cannot buy the same amp, something is wrong here.

I have edited this feedback. After further discussion with Nik, I now believe that that the problem occurred due to the language barrier, and that it was a plain and simple language mixup. So, while I would recommend using great care in making sure he understands exactly what you're saying, I believe him to be honorable.

I bought Sony R10 from Nik. Deal could not have gone better. Good communication. Fast shipping. And he did an outstanding job on packing them. Would definantly deal with again.

And might I just add that I love the R10.

I bought tubes from Nik and the transaction went without a hitch. He actually sent the tubes before my MO arrived. The tubes were very well packaged too. I would do business with Nik again.

I would highly recommend Nik as a kind and reliable seller.

Thank you!

Bought some nos tubes from Nik, and am very very pleased with all aspects of the transaction.

- Communication was fast and friendly

I will gladly deal with Nik anytime.

Oh, poop! I've never thanked Nik for the wonderful amps that I've bought from him this past year; the Angstrom Two Box and Egmont Signature, and also some choice NOS tubes for the Egmont.

Nik has been a pleasure to deal with and has become a friend in the process. To say that the transactions went well is a gross understatement; Nik took the responsibility and time to oversee the voltage conversion from 220v to 110v on both of these fabulous amps, and coordinated the efforts with the amp designers (Mr. Garlashi and Mr. Stor). I can't thank him enough for this. Although he is in Italy and I'm in Cayman, it always seemed like we were right next door. One day I shall go to Italy and visit this fine gentleman!

Outstanding Transaction!

I bought an EAR HP4 from NIK. It was one of the smoothest, fastest and least stressful transactions I’ve ever had with anyone over the Internet. The packaging, shipping and delivery were flawless.

I’m one Happy Camper here. The amp is perfect- just as described.


Thank You

Mitch

Nik's passion and zest for life always inspires me. I seem to be following him as I acquire my gear. This time I bought some tubes from nik. Received them today from sunny Italy. Not a mark on the package. Tubes in pristine condition. A great guy and a great transaction. Thanks a lot nick.

Excellent Transaction! Strongly recommended!

I bought an EarMax AE + tubes from NIK. Everthing went perfectly: great communication, excellent packaging, beautiful product. Nik shipped immediately and paid a hefty price for a 1st class shipping, but... the amp got lost in postal limbo during 17 days!

You can easily imagine how I felt... But, Nik kept with me during this unpleasant time, we exchanged innumerable emails, he did all the research to get the post back on track, got my moral up when it failed.

I had the pleasure to discover a wonderful person and I wish we could continue this excellent communication in the future.

Grazie Mille, Nik.

Best!

Bought a pair of ATH L3000 phones from Nik.

It was a pleasure dealing with him.It was a very smooth transaction and during shipping he always kept me informed of where the package was.
