Single Status Update
Hi - Our differences about how to post aside, I got a couple of PMs from someone on the SR7 list who claims Paul is running a Ponzi scheme on both models, using money received to live on but delivering only enough to keep up a front and the money rolling in. Plus, he's not readily refunding and doesn't actually have an assistant. That is, it's essentially a fake operation. I suggested he post this and let it be sorted publicly, but he declined. It's not for me to do, but being new to the Hynes operation and having an order in, I have to hope it's not true. Small audio operations are often unstable, sometimes somewhere between flakey and lacking integrity, and by their nature typically operate hand to mouth, unless there's another source of income. So those factors in themselves don't prove anything. You have any sense of it all?

I didn't realize you had replied. I assumed everything is above board and paid via a bank transfer from the States, so have no protection except PH's integrity. TopQuark wrote me that one of the two SR4's he just received was ordered last July for August shipping. Guess I'll be waiting for awhile.
I actually do not understand how this single status works and how do you make it. But you told me that you did realize that I had replied did surprise me. You initiated it but you didn't check?
Sorry to hear that you did not pay through PayPal and I hope that you may receive your SR4(s) ASAP. Please advise your friends to pay through PayPal in future and consider to claim a month before the end of the protection.
I'm not sure if PH's playing Ponzi, but I'm sure that if he keeps on supplying the LPSs to the customers, he should be able to recover and get new customers. He must be able to make a substantial profit (percentage-wise) by making the LPS without any cheat. Then the rest of the already paid customers may have a chance to receive the units. This is the best that I can think of for the CAers and any other of PH's customers.
Thanks. All I meant was that I didn't get a notice that you had replied to my second message, which is strange because I got one just now for your latest. There's also a glitch in the Audiophilestyle website (as there was with its previous name), where I open the link in the email and it goes to an error page. The owner hasn't been able to replicate it, but I've also come across another site that does it, so it may be a software thing.
As for PH and the SR4 (or 7), II guess there's nothing to do with PH but to wait.
