Jolida 1501 RC - Page 2

I can get one new for $600. Still not sure if I want to take that plunge. If I do, I'll have to wait about 3 months to get the whole rig up.

So what you are saying here is that you bought them used? What was the final verdict as to why your JOlida's were having issues?

if you buy anything jolida, BUY IT NEW, warranty is crucial.

hhm i wonder who tube guy is

 

that said this 1501 is tempting  but i think i want to try a jolida preamp  trouble is the on i got my eye on doesent have a phono stage, do any of there preamps do?  typically most company i have found enjoy selling you seperates and torchering you in the process, all the while not showing picture of the rear of unit,  quite vexing

Do not EVER buy anything from Jolida.  Two capacitors went bad and they kept my amp for over TWO MONTHS and charged me almost $300 to fix it.  NO APOLOGY whatsoever except to tell me their "systems weren't the best".  $300 for two capacitors.  Two months.  No contact from them. EVER.

 

Their stuff is just rebranded Chinese junk anyway.
