thecrossovernetwork,
not surprised. one ZG member has lost over £1000 in this fiasco, which looks increasingly dishonest by the day. unless anyone else can come up with a reasonableexcuse for taking £1000 off someone in april and not delivering the goods.

their forum has the usual sycophantic-head in the sand approach. paraphrased thus

"retooling, la la la, happy cake. rose tinted lovelyness,

Don't worry Mana is around and will be fine. It's the finest equipment support there is. Once you hear the Mana effect there is no going back. We have customers that keep coming back to enhance their system with additonal levels

The Jig is up. get your heads out of the sand, stop treating your customers and the hifi community like idiots and come clean about what's really happening.

They will be back, I suspect, as Dave says, a new company will be formed.

Hasn't this order been suspended or something?

I had a look at the Mana forum yesterday and, naturally, not a word about any of this.

Mana? A perfect example of hi-fi as myth/religion.

Is there any truth to the rumour that Mana will'disappear' for just three days and then rise again?

I have also heard thatwhen Mana reappears after three days,many Mana racks and tableswill miraculously ascend into the sky. I am not sure if this is true, though.

He said MANA IS CLOSED FOR RE TOOLING
rofl.gif.57a0859802223cfb25763a5f876a4be6.gif


I then told him , I had a copy of the closing down paper work from company house would he like a copy........... he then decided to change his story......... he said er er er I know nothing of what is going on I am hoping to hear soon, I then offered to email a copy of the notice which he said would be nice

re tooling not heard that for a few years and its not a German saying (lived there ten years)

BUT it is a saying used by engineering companies in UK working in steel

my dad use to use that saying, so I suspect he has been in contact

Didn't like Mana stuff anyway...

Always seemed more of amyth than anything else.

My guess is most folks buy it because of the name.

This thread seems to be about the apparent problems (or not) with Mana.

Lets not degrade it into a stand vs bullshit thread, we could have a new thread for that

Regarding the subject of Mana as a company going bust, I think it's sad news and a significant loss to the world hi-fi scene. Love them or hate them, but JW invented the most talked about and significant equipment supports ever made.

Oh, and in reference to JW supposedly ripping people off, I'm not in possession of any more information than anyone else regarding what's happened with people not receiving goods paid for, etc, but what I do know (knowing JW as a person) is that he would not set out to deliberately rip anyone off - that is definitely not his style.

Whatever has happened to cause this situation, I can guarantee you he would not have intended for anyone to lose out on goods they have bought and paid for. Yes, I know that appears to be the case, but there will be other reasons for this happening, that's for sure.

Marco.
