Otomon Labs. Soundgate Japan


Has anybody purchased an amp made by Ken Uesugi from Otomon Labs/Soundgate in Japan?
I’m seriously thinking of getting a 2A3 amp, but keen for any feedback. Everything I’ve read looks good, but buyer experience is invaluable. 
Thanks in advance.

Hello sir, how are you?
Please, can you tell me more about the Otomon from Japan?
I’m not finding too much info, just found your experience and another user that described a disaster situation..
Do you know more people that purchased amps from Otomon?
Any additional info is very much appreciated! I do not received his e-mail back yet...
by the way, I think I not fully undertstood about the amplfiiers, appears to be only vintage pieces, including lots of vintage components inside that shows a lot signs of use...
He build also new ampliifiers, with new components?
Honestly, I do not found the build quality impressive, I’m missing something?
Please, let me know, many thanks! best regards!
Let me be more specific:

When I look his various amplifiers design, I think they are interesting, uniques, but sometimes very intriguing, strange..

For example, I noticed that in some amps, he uses vintage parts, vintage capacitors!?!?!? how such old capacitors can delivery nice performance? vintage transformers, some very old. from the 50's 60's 70's I think... he also sells this components...

What I found most intriguing is that in some amps he uses vintage western electric wires! wha's about that? I mean, very old wires, you can see clearly the signs of age deterioration..

Someone can explain about this design approach? 

This is totally new for me...

In general, the amps appears always to have some vintage components, some more than others...

The work appears to be unique, interesting, but also intriguing, strange...
I don't know anything about these amps or the man - here's another thread from a few days ago that has a different view - linking just for your info

Yes, I saw this, that why I would like to talk with more people that already purchased custom made amps with the man... It's being hard to find I must say..
One thing for sure, his works appears to be a lot of character, is captivating in some way, but I just concerned about the reliability, the scarce infos about doesn't help much...
