I have all the pleasure to explain this story, i am just not glad to hear it so late as i don't have much time to come here.
I sold a Mcintosh MLD7020 to a guy called Rein Korthals Altes long ago...
He got the player and everything was 5 stars.
Then he claimed after a couple of days that the player didn't worked, and he sent me a picture of a broken "wheel", the one that takes the pickup assy to read the disc.
I though it was very strange as i paid a fortune to Mcintosh to revise the player and i have proof of it, i've sent them the invoice whitch proves that the unit was renewed (new spindle, new motor, belts and adjustment), and came from Mcintosh factory double boxed and checked.
So it was a strange thing....it's not my fault that he has droped the unit or something...
Then i told him to take the unit to a technician, and the unit was thewre for long and they told him they couldn't do anything, but thy touched the unit inside and parts we're missing.
The reason i know that is because i asked him to send the unit back to me, so i could take it here to Pioneer (as it's a CLD97 clone inside) for repair.
They installed a new pickup, but the broken part was getting hard to get, and they also tought it was very weird. I even called Mcintosh New York, and it's was weird to them either, as the unit was checked 100% before leaving the factory.
The part that was broken took alot of time to the technician in Portugal to find, but with a Mcintosh friend in US they could find it and now it's installed and the unit is leaving to Rein again in the begginning of next week.
NOW TELL ME IF THIS JERK IS RIGHT HERE?!!!! This guy is so crazy and rude.
First of all i don't steal anyone, second he wanted a refund for something i don't know if was him that broke. Besides people that are only curious were touching the unit inside.
I've warned this guy, and he is going to answer for all his words in court. Nobody has the right to talk that way, it's a very serious affirmation.
