I still have the following and love them as much as the day i got them:
MPX3-SLAM: HD/650's never leave this amp.
PPX3-6SN7: Jensen PIO capacitor upgrade, Power Supply Upgrade. (I ordered this amp directly from SP. HD595/120's never leave it.
Makes me sad that Mihail screwed up so bad and screwed so many people over. I can say that I will never get rid of my 2 amps. So glad (knock on wood) that mine have worked perfectly.
PLEASE PLEASE open them up and take photos. They might be working perfectly right now but unless you know what's inside, you don't know what'll happen tomorrow.
Please, open it from the bottom without power attached and take photos. Lots of us on the DIY forum would quickly look it over for you. The danger is SO STRONG that I can't in good faith tell you not to worry. I must say you MUST look inside.
My personal MPX3 that I bought was over-voltage on some caps and if anything shorted out the main PSU caps would explode. Not a little "little burned up amplifier" but a fireball 1m diameter.
