Default Review "Unexpected Creations"

Hey folks,

This is a review of Don Amann and Unexpected Creations. I wasn't really sure which section to put this in although I suppose it could be considered a prelude to an install log. Regardless, I've done all the Itrader stuff but this seems like a slightly different circumstances where I was not purchasing a used item from another member but buying something new from someone who runs a business but is also active on this forum. Seeing as how this is a business, I figured it only fair to evaluate the product that this business provides.

From the very first PM Don was very prompt, direct and professional. Shortly after that we were on the phone discussing products, system ideas and alternatives to those ideas. Don was always very friendly, knowledgeable and professional. Although Don is direct and opinionated, he has always been honest and I never felt as if Don was trying to make a quick buck off of me. Similarly, he was very patient with me and always made time to answer any questions that I had. This literally went on for weeks while I made my decisions and Don never lost composure and always made more time for me including a couple of 1AM calls.

For comparison sake, most audio shops (home and car) can barely make the time for me at all. It almost always feels like a quick sell and whoever gets me out of store fastest with a head unit purchase gets a free toaster and a lap dance.

This is really at the center of why I chose to write this product review. The product that Don provides is in my opinion, 2nd to none. If there were a Porsche or Ferrari of customer service, it would be "Unexpected Creations".

I ended up going with a full Esotar 2 setup as well as a "black" TRU Tech Super Billet 8. As opposed to going with the Esotar 650 mid bass, I decided to go with the Esotec 182 or 172. Don arranged to have Dynaudio send a dummy driver to me for measurement purposes (who does that?) and I ultimately went with the 182s.

A few weeks later, Don listed a few TRU demo amps in the classified section. I decided to buy the 2200 and 4100 from him and have them sent back to TRU to have the cases black anodized to match the Billet 8 as well as upgraded op amps. I'm not sure if I should say this, but I later found out that Don had TRU do custom white LEDs for all of the amps as well has having both amps upgraded to "S" cards and Stage III as a thank you for my business.

Honestly, I feel honored to have had the opportunity to do business with Don as well as consider him a friend. I appreciate his honesty and directness but above all else his business integrity. Honestly, I'm not sure how or if I can repay him beyond extending my strongest recommendation towards him and continuing to do business with him in the future.

Thanks again Don!

and now some pics

Thanks for the compliments. I must admit that I'm pretty excited right now

As for the source I'm dealing with a difficult OEM situaion. Basically there is no physical space in the dash of the car and I'm working with GM's "CAN-BUS" so I will be using a Bit One for the time being. If I need to at a later date, I can add a Wadia/Ipod source for high res playback.

If there were a way to get a good raw signal I'd probably use a professional piece.

Congrats on your new toys, please keep us posted with the installs.

Ditto x 100 about Don @ Unexpected Creations. I've recently had the pleasure of doing business with Don. He spent countless hours with me demoing, educating, and patiently babysitting my indecisiveness for a relatively small sale comparatively. He took time away from his family to make sure I left there with a decision I would not second guess, and keep me happy. He earned a new customer that night in every way.

Great guy. He is truly a professional without peer.

...now, we just need to send him some nicotine patches to help him kick the cigarettes. lol

Man, that thing is such a lost cause. I have had that thing in 3 houses now and no matter where I put it, how much light, water, etc. it's just hopeless. It now serves two purposes. 1. A constant reminder of the fragility of life. 2. A diffuser for left main speaker in my home rig

At the old house I actually had a couple of palms back there. It's arguable if it actually did anything, seeing as how tall the trunks of those pants were. It did look good though. I gave the palms away when I moved because they had grown to almost 17' tall and wouldn't fit in the new place.



The Ficus in the original picture didn't do well in that room either (probably due to the light).

I like the pic with the watch in it because with the construction of those 430s it's hard to tell you're looking at such a small driver.

Nice equipment, Se7en. I really need to make it out to one of the Austin meet-ups... are you planning a build log?

I gotta give kudos to Don as well. He's going out of his way to help me out with a noisy Rainbow amp that I bought used from someone else. When I get a new car in a few months, Don is the guy I'm calling.

I would like to know what car this is going into
All you said is dealing with OEM and the can bus system

You know there are plenty of ways around that setup right?

Or do you not think anything aftermarket will look right in the dash??

Yes, there will be a full build thread but unfortunately against the spirit of DIYMA. I will be seeking professional help on this one and I'm at the tail end of the installer selection process.
When I started this system I had grand visions of doing this myself but quickly realized that I was getting way in over my head. This was a lot of money for me to come up with and I want to make sure that I get the value back out of the gear. In my mind the install is far more important than the equipment. Similarly, too many misteps with the install will cost me more in vehicle depreciation than the equipment itself. To this 2nd point, I've been seriously considering just buying a project car (on the cheap) that I could do the install to and work on over time.

We'll see.
