I still have mine, going on 7 years, but yes, Mine do still blow resistors. I think the suggestion of Tosh was also to put in 2 ohm resistors. I have an appointment with my electronics repair guy, who's in Middletown, CT. He's terrific with the amps, and kept a pair for quite a while because just when he thought the amp was working correctly, it would start making some sound. When I got it back, it was completely quiet, but there was still one socket that wouldn't bias easily. It blew a couple of weeks ago. Back for repair! By the way, only the amp I use on my left channel has problems: the one on the right channel just smiles benevolently every time it sees me, and does its job without complaint.
Frankly, I don't care. If one has a functional pair of these, I don't see that much to complain about. It's a killer amp, but I can hear people saying, but its highs are a little rolled off, or such-and-such has better bass. I don't listen for "bass" or treble, I listen to hearts and souls. The amps play music with the soul of a poet, and can crunch you like the Hammer of Thor. Their dynamic contrast range is completely --ugh, that word --- awesome. Their noise floor is divine, and even if this pair fails, I'll just buy another. I'd love better highs, but I honestly sometime wonder what others have heard that sounds more like an actual orchestra playing in real - and continous - space. The only other amp I had that was completely continous in its sound was my Jadis Defy 7 amp, and the Hurricanes, while not as rich sounding (on brass), still generate in me an emotional reaction I refuse to give up. They're staying. If not this pair, then another.
