Thank to everyone's knowledge being collected here on this amp, it's a real reflection of the company values at Sanway.
I brought my FP14000 from a Ebay seller thinking he was offering support, and when the amp went down a year later he was gone.
I found Johnson after that, but being a serving person myself, found his replies distasteful and duty of care lacking.
Eventually i decided to tackle the problem in the future when time and money permitted.
Two years later trying to clean up the workshop, i picked up the amp and did a ****load of Googling before i found the 10k variable resistor mod here for VPL power cycle and fixed the high power output.
Being half Scottish, i don't like putting my hands too deep into my pockets, especially since it was within the warranty period, and for such a common problem and BS in-between, but, i must say im rather pleased it's back in the rack kicking subs again.
Would i buy again? Yes, but you must hone your component troubleshooting skills for that odd one that faults.
I don't know what Lab Gruppen has to say about them, but Sanway was smart going for a kick ass design that tight ass audio guys drool over in bang for buck compared to the originals price.
I see a few warranty claims turn out happy but those stuck in the bush see a potential boat anchor in regards to REAL service.
A decent amp if you find the flaws within warranty period.
