RE: Thoughts on Sanders Magtech

I had read that some Magtech amps had a part that was bad from the supplier and the amps with this part would get very hot.

Since I bought the amp from eBay, and there was no history to be found, I wanted to be sure that it didn't have the bad part.

So I called Sanders and asked them to look at the pictures of the inside of the amp that were provided in the auction.

Roger Sanders' wife answered the phone immediately, looked up the auction while I was on the phone with her and both she and a technician looked it over. They couldn't tell from the pictures, but offered to inspect the amp for $50 (if I recall correctly).

I purchased the amp (it included a 30 day return period) had it shipped directly to Sanders.

The technician at Sanders looked it over and reported that it was an early model, and it did not contain the bad part. He offered to bring it up to "current specifications" for an additional $450 plus $75 dollars for their shipping crate, as the one provided by the seller was not suitable. The update came with a lifetime warranty.

I gladly paid the money and had the amp in my hands within one week of it arriving at Sanders. Total cost including purchase of the amp was $3600 - quite a deal in my estimation!

I didn't ask what was changed to bring it up to current specs, as I wouldn't have understood any of those technical details anyway.

I was really impressed with how cooperative and helpful everyone that I encountered at Sanders turned out to be. I can't recommend them highly enough.
