Hi

I'm looking for certain webs where I can buy Nichicon MUSE KG (Gold Tune series) and other audio parts (R, jacks, etc).

I found out that Percyaudio.com offers a wilde collection of Nichicon caps, so I sent my order to them many times but I haven't had any response since the beginning of February.

- Is Percy email "Michael@percyaudio.com" ? Does he have other valid emails for ordering?
- Are there any online stores that also carry Nichicon KG?

Thank you.

With Michael you have to try a little hard. I had a thread around here about lack of response (I must check if I updated it, I think I did) from Percy audio, but once he did respond, we finished business in about 10 days (including delivery to the other side of the planet).

You have to send a few mails, and hopefully he should respond. His Muse range is much bigger and far as I can see, a little cheaper than minisemi. The reason I stuck with him was to keep my BG and KZ order with one source, as shipping to India does get a little expensive..
 
I like Mike but I had had the same problem with him the last time I ordered. After two weeks and several emails where I started to lay it down thick he finally came through. Just paypal him the money that will get his attention. I think he's had a few too many tire kickers to deal with and he wants to make sure you are serious.
He's got the goods for sure.
 
Guys,

Here's how you deal with Percy Audio.

Make a spreadsheet of the parts you need with cost info
included.

Mail a hardcopy of the spreadsheet along with a check for the full
price of the parts plus appropriate shipping.

In 4 days you will receive a package in the mail. (OK maybe
longer than that; but I'm only 2 or 3 states away and that's how
long it takes to/from where I am)

The last time I placed an order I sent him maybe a dollar or
two too much (because of cost breaks for quantity) and there
was some cable in the order... so he sent me more cable than
I ordered. He's an honest man.

Its all good.

Or.... you can email him 20 times and not get an answer and
give up, thinking he doesn't exist or he doesn't care, or or or.

:cool:
 
I'd LOVE to order from you, Minisemi, but you don't seem to carry the large solder-lug caps like Percy Audio does (15,000uf 63V, 22,000uf 63V, etc...)

Start stocking those, and you'll steal a lot of Percy Audio's business. I think Michael is a great guy, but the lack of communication from him is absurd. Another source for these large caps would be a relief.

OK I give up... I keep contacting him for a month without any reply.

Me,I take care of all my costumers and i am taking the time for respond to all my e-mail and question,i have order over all the United states(California,Nevada,Massachusetts,New york etc.)And all over the world.

I ship the same day and shipping is free for order over 99USD.:D


Thanks to all,www.minisemi.com:angel:

Yeah this is one of my options, but it seems my targets (KG 4700/63V and 100V) are still out of stock.
 
I had a good experience dealing with Percy Audio. I sent an email stating that I would like to order quantity XX of part number YY and asked him to provide the total. He factored in the bulk discount and shipping and sent me the total. I paid via paypal and had caps in the mail a couple of days later. I'm happy...

I can understand that he's not very responsive to the "do you have" or "how much is" emails -- especially if it's information that's readily available in his catalog. One could say this is poor customer service, but from someone who's trying to run a business in his spare time to give the audio community the option of getting exotic parts without having to order 2500 pieces from the manufacturer, I think it's pretty good. Better that what I've experienced on eBay for example.

Another thing that helps is to make the subject line of the email clear. State your purpose of the email in the subject line.
