Good thing I can take the financial hit without too much issue but nevertheless it pisses me off how irresponsible people can be
    You really should give us some details, not just conclusions.

    Is the amp out of warranty?

    If not, what reasons did Colin give you for leaving you to repair it?

    Same viz paying for parts?

    I am the dreaded George mentioned by Mr Underhill and that rascal Alex54. The quote did not work as I hoped which would have made it obvious.

    I should be getting the Rev D update soon, as soon as Colin gets his new speakers, as I want to hear how his Nords work with his new BIG JBLs. Should be fun going round there having a good chat and listening to that combo. I may even put a few words together and supplement Alex54's review on HifiWigwam.

    Well, it’s 5 am, here....

    I have the new MK ii and like it so far. I have SI op amps and Sparkos on the way. Your thoughts?

    I am not sure whether any warranty is applicable as he never bothered to even address this. It also was never even definitively determined what the cause for failure was. Colin never gave me any reason for leaving me to repair. The last email I sent to him (about a week ago) was left unanswered.

    The amp amp has a two year warranty.

    When was was it Delivered?

    Colin answers my email quickly. I’ll send him an email to come here and reply or contact you.

    I wonder if your email somehow goes into his spam folder....

    The warranty on the amps is two years and is listed on the Main page of the website. As the amps are completely modular and repairs can be made with a screwdriver and a minimal level of manual dexterity sending you the parts allows you to save on the shipping if you choose. I changed out a buffer board in about 15 minutes to save on the shipping. If you are inside the warranty period you can certainly bear the cost to ship the amp back. What is the nature of the "failure" as it can only be one of four things all easily swapped out.
    Main - JVC QL-Y7/Denon Dl-301 Mk II, Gold Note PH-10, Nuprime CDT-8, Teac Reference NT-505, PS Audio DirectStream DAC w/Bridge II, BHK Preamp with BHK 250 amp or Kinki EX-M1, Verity Audio Otello, (2) Rythmik F12SE, Dueland IC's, Triode Wire Labs SC & PC's, Equi=Core 1800, PI Audio Uberbuss, Timbernation rack

    Family Room - Oppo UDP-203, Auralic Aries, W4S Recovery with iPower, Nuprime DAC-10, Mivera Purepower, Nola KO's, (2) Rythmik F-12G, Audio Sensibility SC & IC's, Neotech PC's, SurgeX SA-1810

    I just sent Colin email about this and expect him to answer soon.

    My sparkos are delayed by weather, but when they show up I’ll open my amp and gladly send you photos or talk you through it by phone.

    Do do you have a Revision c, or d?
