OCD mickey website and negativity.


I see videos from this individual frequently he's got a show every night almost on YouTube which is live. It's interesting.

I'm not familiar with the brands on his website and he doesn't seem to be happy about lots of stuff. He visits stores and complains about how terrible their equipment is and that no one knows what they're doing without really explaining him himself.

I've learned many things from him but I don't know why his gear that he represents seems lacklustre, I'm not gonna mention it here but maybe I'm wrong. There are many outstanding so-called higher end audio gear that's out there and he doesn't seem to carry any of it.

I think he is a joke. He’s got the hand signal for his tribe (followers), kind of childish. He’s against most brick and mortar audio stores but turns around and does the same thing he complains about. Unless you buy from him, everything else is crap, according to him.

Personally, I think some it the YT reviewers/audiophiles are more truthful/believable  than any audio magazine reviewer. When have you seen any magazine review that wasn’t off the charts positive? You won’t. I have seen numerous YT reviewers have negative reviews, and not just against products that they don’t sell. 

@emergingsoul Well….i can certainly attest that ignoring my vinyl addiction, a serious salmon fishing boat and habit can eclipse the expenditure for a decent reference music  system…. Of course, i’m a snob about both and the Meticulous care of salmon i catch… IF you make it to Washington, stop by for some great fish, wine and music ;-) 

By the way… Tomic lures 601 is my favorite salmon fishing plug…. no, my name is not Tom

I have made 2 five-figure purchases from Mike Powell, both times he brought the items to my house for a relaxed no pressure audition. He stands by his products and in my opinion has a great set of ears and excellent decades of experience with the inner workings of equipment and the place along the price line where you get great bang for the buck and which is often not the most promoted brands. He does recommend equipment that he does not carry such as ADG and other brands.  When dealing with you as an individual I and others have found him very respectful, not putting down your equipment, taste or budget. He seems as much or more interested you being moved by the music and establishing a long term audiophile friendship, as in making a sale.

@gammajo Agree 100% I'm sure many people's comments here are from people who have never done business with him before and talking out of their ass!
