I've been a customer of McAlister Audio some years ago. I bought him a DA-6 DAC and a EA-8 amplifier (more than $3000 for the total).
I had many problems with him. The amp made some horrible crackling, not the XLR input I wanted, the DAC had a problem of volume, bass, not the right color, the alimentation block shut down after a pair of days... I returned everything for warranty repair, and I nothing was corrected. Worse, the amp had a new balance problem.
And like you, everything was shipped in tomato/apple very poor package.
After months of battle and failed calls he accepted to refund me. I sent back everything.
I was never refund. I completely lost my money and since that day Peter was impossible to join.
I tried to contact some authorities but they were also unable to contact him. I would be very grateful if you read my message and tell me where you have been able to find some help and get back your money.
PS: please excuse me for my possible mistakes, I'm French.
Toronto collection co.
From: Don Vence, President [mailto: email@example.com ]
Subject: CCC - Company Profile
Please see attached an overview on my company.
As we discussed we can litigate this file in Ontario , however I recommend we have our collection department attempt to collect it first with a few calls.
It costs you nothing if we do not collect, but if we do you will have saved any needless court costs.
If we have to litigate the account the total cost will be approx. $500.
Our collection approach consists of phone, and letter contact.

peter mcalister is a total fraud. beware. everything that was mentioned above has happened (is happening) to me. i paid over $4000 for an amplifier. peter built it for me. he shipped it to me in fruit boxes, using floor tiles, rubber, paper shards and plastic bags to protect it. it arrived ruined. i shipped it back. it was returned to sender. i shipped it again (at my expense). he "repaired" it and shipped it in the same amateurish way. it arrived in worse condition than before. he's now gone silent and i fear i will never get my money back.
do NOT transact business with peter mcalister. he is a fraud and a scammer. you are warned.
