My Experience with Mike's Customer Service
« on: 24 Mar 2018, 03:11 am »
I want to start off by saying that I do not usually post to forums.  Nonetheless, I felt it important to point out the excellent customer service that I have received from Mike over the years.  As background, I own Mike’s Superstream, Purestream, and I am waiting on a Purepower SE as well.  I can say without hesitation that Mike has always been very quick to respond to any questions that I have and has gone out of his way to make sure that I was satisfied.

A very good example of this is when I purchased some Weiss opamps from Mike and decided to install them myself into my Purestream.  Mike was extremely helpful in sending pictures and detailed instructions on how to install the opamps properly.  Despite this, during the course of my installation, I accidentally broke one of the wires that connected the XLR output to the main board and rendered my Purestream unusable.  I informed Mike of what had happened and he indicated that he would fix it and send it back to me.  Given that it was my poor installation skills that caused the problem, I fully expected that Mike might charge me for the repair.  However, I received my Purestream back from Mike completely repaired and without charge.

Needless to say, I thought that this was excellent service and certainly indicated to me that Mike stands behind his products and his customers.  All too often, we hear about negative customer service experiences with manufacturers and I think it is important to point out the positive ones as well.  Thanks Mike.

This amp purchase is my first transaction with Mike and I would do it again anytime.  Just following the Audiocircle interactions has been a blast.  Mike has answered all my offline queries as well as those brought up in the forum.  And best of all...............
I JUST GOT MY SHIPMENT NOTIFICATION!!!  OOH!  OOH OOH!!

Likewise Mike has always been both informative

I got my shipping confirmation yesterday morning, but the DHL website won't accept my waybill number when I use the 'On Demand Delivery' feature on the site. Has anyone else experienced this? It says you don't have to sign up to use that feature. Maybe DHL is like FedEx, where the info doesn't show up on the site until it reaches it's first destination.

I'm having the same problem. I need to ensure that it has "no signature required" since I will not be at home during the day.

Hi Guys,

If you got emailed tracking numbers that just means I generated the waybill. All amps I generated waybills for so far will ship either today or Friday. Once your amp actually ships you’ll be able to change the delivery options.  By Friday I’ll have only 24 amps left to ship from Lot 1-6. Mostly black. The black panels I’m missing are ready. I decided to just finish up all the amps I have cases for before going to get them.
