Well now I am definitely interested in at least 1 amp. I had voted for 4. 1 of my amps started emitting smoke about an hour ago or so.

I still can't believe no one else has voted for wanting 4 amps.

What about a replacement that is not a plate? Say an external amp? Maybe a 2 channel pro audio modified amp? I dunno, I'm just trying to keep my costs low since I have 4 MFW's...

I'm a maybe. I'd like to go Turbo but the funds are an issue. The replacement is way cheaper.

will the existing controller box be utilized by the new, drop in amp?

I'd be interested as well, I have been through so many amps I can't see the ones I have currently lasting much into next year. Wait, one has been fine, make the the 2nd MFW I have that has been through a lot of them, either way I'll be replacing both.

On using the orig controller, I would say without a doubt NO

Not only was it a source of many of the HUM HUM HUM problems, it would increase costs, much easier to integrate the phase, level xover etc onto the single board.

KEY WORD " USABLE"

Like the sign on my cube at my 9-5 day job, you can have it FAST,CHEAP,or RIGHT, pick one....... I think everyone here wants RIGHT

It isnt going to be this month, short of that it would be a WAG if I through anything out there.

As soon as I get a feel for how long it will be, I will let everyone know.

Expect demand to increase. They changed the wording on what's left of the site and (not surprisingly) there's no free MFW-15 amplifier remedy under any warranty. The new wording is

Lets see. Which way will the scale tilt when an MFW-15 owner considers whether to purchase from someone who:

A) by all references and appearances is both knowledgeable and trustworthy, although progressing toward a better replacement a bit more slowly than pent-up demand is building?

~~~  OR  ~~~

B) an unknown individual (unless it's one of the former company principals) via nothing but an email address, a so-called MFW-15 amp of unknown origin, performance, and build quality recommended by an untrustworthy individual or his representative?


Without a functioning MFW, I have no BOOM, so I'm patiently waiting for Option A, although chompin' at the bit while I wait. We all like to have a life outside of our daily routine, but whatever "extra" effort you can put into finalizing this design ASAP will be greatly appreciated, Kevin.

EDIT: No change in opinion, but the actual B option email address appears to belong to a Longmont resident. Perhaps others know him better than I do.

I dunno if it matters if I mention this guys name, but if you dig around a little bit like I did, you'll see that he was a tech at av123. At least that's what I found. Take that FWIW. But yea there may be pent up demand for new amps as these fail by the day and it seems to me as though this individual is even more shadier than the company he worked for. Almost makes me wonder if he was a disgruntled employee. That's just my opinion, but not to add any more pressure on you Kevin but it seems like the sooner your new amp came out, the better

To his credit, he's taking questions and answering them--even recommending Kevin's alternative (feelin' the pressure yet, Kevin?  ). Sounds like he's primarily moving out the remaining V3 amps (no interest there for me, thank you) and avoiding the earlier versions (directly, at least).  Overall, lots better info than XX123's update today.

Wow!!!

This guy is now taking orders for those v3 amps, and I just got an email from him on the pricing of these things!!!

All I can say is WOW!!!!!!!!

Hopefully someone else is curious as well

That means they're either really cheap, or really expensive.  I'm guessing really expensive.

I'll go with $250.

Nicely done!

He's asking 225 plus shipping so you basically got it right on the number!

Unless his shipping charges are ridiculously high as well
