Is Supratek Syrah still the deal of the century?

Is Supratek Syrah still the deal of the century? or there are new ones?
To add to Dazz's remark:

Not to mention he lives in Australia, how much does it cost to ship if a repair is needed? While I am sure it is a great unit and lives up to the hype, this would be a deal-breaker for me.
My understanding is that Mick's partner, Kevin Covi (who helped design some of the Suprateks)is in the USA. Their website also states that most technicians would be able to do any likely repair work, and that Mick would provide instruction by phone and/or email in that case. I don't believe many have had to ship their units back to Mick for repair.
FWIW, I don't own a Supratek, just happen to have seen this info lately. Cheers,

Thnx for the info, that is good to know and makes a big difference, to me anyway.
Things have not changed :) When I was a student, I was in a hi-fi shop when Mick brought his first prototype power amp in. He was a scruffy bearded man in faded jeans and old sneakers. I haven't seen him for >10 years ... he's probably an older scruffy bearded man with the same sneakers!

Back then, it was called "Micrex" (named after Mick and his partner, Rex). It was an awful looking thing - all exposed with messy wiring. The hi-fi dealer (Clifford de Souza, of Audio Synergy in Perth) suggested a chrome case with jarrah cheeks and presto, the first Micrex was born.

I ran a Micrex power amp in my system for a couple of years. It was exposed to incredibly hot Perth weather - could go up to 45C in summer (that's 115F). It ran absolutely reliably.
I have a Chenin, I spin lots of vinyl. I use very low output fidelity research cartridges in the phono and my background is superb and it throws a beautiful warm stage. I listen to lots of CD's and SACD's. I don't do tv's or home theatre, I have a remote and could less about it. I can't wait too get home later tonight and get records spinning. If I run into more coin I will in all proability just go up the chain and get a Cortese. That's about all I can say about Supratek. and, I thought I would NEVER switch from a Conrad Johnson pre(I fell very hard for CJ in the late 70's/early 80's).

Have Fun
