Ifinally got the SX-1980 receiver back, he packed it well in a good strong box.I was very worried about it getting damaged and going thru UPS. I powered it up and it plays real nice now. I don't think he cleaned it up as much as I thought he would . I did all the cosmetic restoration myself and I am very happy how it looks now. I think he should just state in the future that it will take 4-6 months for repairs rather than the 1 month he told me.

I am so happy for you. Unfortunately, next month will be a year he has had my SX950. I have called and texted probably a dozen times during the last year and he has responded about three times, always an excuse of some kind.

Kissisone, did you ever get your SX-950 back? Brent sold my husband a SX-950 that only powers on, no sound. He sold it on Facebook marketplace under a false name, the only reason we found out who he is was that he accepted part of the payment from cash app. He sold my husband 2 receivers a Marantz and the SX- 950. He said they were in excellent condition. The Marantzs power cord has black electrical tape on it and the 950 only powers on. His greed got the better of him that's how we found out what a fraud he is. I hope he didn't sell us your SX-950.

I Entered into a contract with Brent Huskins of Crossed Paths Vintage to totally renovate my SX-1010 Pioneer receiver on 04/15/2022 for the up-front amount of $600.00 plus $75.00 return shipping. Told it would take about 3 months to complete. I inquired on status on 06/20/2022 and told he had started and stated "smooth sailing so far". Inquired status on 08/04/2022. told awaiting parts. After this date he no longer responded to my phone calls. On 10/06/2022 texted for an update, told still awaiting parts. On 11/08/2022 inquired again on status told still awaiting parts. On 12/22/2022 told him I would be ok with him reusing the old parts if they met specifications. He informed me he "ended up in the ER and had to have some unexpected surgery and a lengthy hospital stay". On 01/30/2023 inquired again on the status of my receiver. On 02/02/2023 told he was getting caught up and should have my receiver "shipped in the next 30 days". On 04/05/2023 INQUIRED AGAIN on the status and told him to let me know if there would any additional shipping charges. NO ANSWER. At this time, I did a little research and discovered NUMEROUS COMPLAINTS against CROSS PATHS VINTAGE and Brent Huskins. Now knowing I had very little hope of him sending back my receiver I proposed another business transaction (knowing his greed) to work on another receiver that I had. So, on 04/20/2023 I texted him I was planning on making a road trip (1200 miles) in May to pick up my receiver and drop off my other one for repair. On May 21 arrived in Burleson, TX and texted him that night to make arrangements for pickup. He would only meet me someplace other than his home or so-called place of business (his business address is only a fictitious storefront). I told him I don't do business that way. On the following morning May 22,2023, I went to the Burleson Police Department to ask for assistance. Not only did the Officer assist me but he gave Brent Huskins an ultimatum, to bring my receiver to the Burleson PD parking lot or face charges for theft and fraud. I rec'd my receiver that morning. He showed me the inside the receiver and it did look clean. I asked him about the $75.00 for return shipping and all he said was "So sue me". When I got it home it was evident that he did not do the complete restoration. The phono will only play in mono, stereo only has one channel, and switches still stick. I waited this long to make a statement because I wanted to decompress so I could be as objective as I could. Brent Huskins has a long history of accepting money for restorations and then keeping the vintage electronic gear. It's very coincidently that he sells vintage electronic gear on his facebook page? I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND HIS SERVICE TO ANYONE!

I got to wonder.... why has no one "made him disappear yet".

There are things in life that absolutely justify violence. This man 'Mr. Huskins' is a low life POS. He deserves whatever happens to him.
