My current hifi set includes:apogee stage(spk),mentmore m-200(tube mono amp),supratek syrah and accuphase 65v cdp. you can see the first three brands have gone with wind.But I feel very happy and lucky with them. Almost every local audiophile friend,even those who own watt/puppy 7,avalon/jeff roland,ets, admirs me. A classic hifi work will exisit much longer than the manufactuer itself. As to post service, it's not a real problem at all. I'm perhaps the only supratek user in mainland china. Even if i got some problem in syrah(not any over the 5+ years),i can find a diyer friend to repair. It's simple to cure a tube gear.
