My experiences with PKN have been positive until now. Including the service for one amp. 
 I think it took about a week from the moment I've sent it in until it was delivered repaired to us. (and this was includding shipping!)

Link goes nowhere, but what I do see from yesterday is them offering to sell direct undercutting their own dealers’ prices

Mircea - three months. Also UK owners have to pay export duty and another set of import duty on top of shipping for repair. Well, they don’t but that’s what was invoiced for. Along with the repair cost despite the fault being from manufacture.

anyway I’m done. I’ll see the amp launched at the same conference as Half Life 3 yeah?

The irony is this unit was built, shown on a trade show, demonstrated working and then put on hold to be revised to add DSP - which proved unworkable in budget and time constraint so was shelved and that total timeframe was maybe one year tops. Again, anyone got a PHOTO of a working PKN 3PHASE? Surely they built even ONE UNIT over what, four years, tested it in the field? Got a rental house to do a report or give feedback?

That’s how you do pre release hype in a realistic manner. Or you shit can your project and go with a manufacturer who can deliver.

Mircea - a professional manufacturer does not post spec sheets and claim products are available on their site and trade shows and to their distribution chain and then go quiet when people try to place orders. You can make the best thing in the world but if you can’t deliver people go elsewhere. I like the XE6000, despite three out of four in my possession failing with some of the slowest and worst communication and service I’ve had, but not being able to meet a request for even a quote on dozens of units puts you off somewhat let alone promises of new bigger better that don’t come to fruition.

Did you hear much of anything before XTA APA, MC2 Delta, Linea 44 séries dropped?

Of course, welcome to prove me wrong, would love it in fact.

It might also surprise you which respected amp manufacturer is now using the very same Void prerelease tech with their existing DSP platform...

It was never Void technology, it was another attempted collaboration with an amp designer/manufacturer that went wrong....  I know exactly where that technology is now ;)

PKN has dropped some -30% of their prices due much larger production volumes < and maybe cheap HUF against EURO? >...
I have never paid more than 50 EUROs for repair of my PKN amps, even which badly left in the rain.
Other guys can confirm, that PKN service not only quick but has *cheapest* factory repairs!
( I would not say how much paid for pair of K10 got 380V..) 10X the price of..

I already have some grainy pictures somewhere but next time I will well document around inside-outside a H8 once I visit their site..

You dont really want to hear my service experience with PKN. A nightmare that ended up costing me over 600 euros and 3 visits to the PKN service in Hungary to finally fix the amp.

Both the UK and Hungary are still in the EU, so I call that bullshit.

Indeed so. Should have queried that for sure. You can also claim relief on duty when sending goods outside the EU for repair, although have not done it personally.
