Why would you want to buy from an unstable company, newly back in business? Think of all the buyers they left on the warranty curb.

I think it's good news even if Ken K. is not affiliated with the new company. It's my understanding that the European distributor of the original M&K are the principals of the new company. It's also my understanding that they will make an effort to back the warranty of original M&K products.
I think their product line is too deep and redundant in some ways. We'll have to wait to see if they can build a dealer network. Chris M. is supposedly running the pro division so that is definitely good news.
There is no evidence that the new company is "unstable" at all. It's also insulting to consider the original M&K company which was in business for 35 years as unstable.
Well I would think they would honor warranty on older products. Infact, I think they should go out of their way to DEFINITELY take care of even well out-dated MK products of old, too! But I guess we'll see.
Companies unfortunately do go under from time to time. It's the nature of things. I do, however, hate to see co's that otherwise make excellent products go under. But then I'm that much more pleased to see em come back! (I mean, would you rather have some other company come fill their void, offering inferior product? I wouldn't.
Beyond the politics and uncertainties, I've always thought they made very well built, solid, good sounding products for what they were designed for. Certainly, the dependability factor was VERY GOOD, IME! I wouldn't hesitate to buy or sell the products in the right situation.
Hope they do well, and come back strong.
