I just bought a Gilmore V2-se from sacd lover, and this is the smoothest private transaction I've ever had (and I've had some good ones here on head-fi). Communication was outstanding, and Earl is a knowledgable, helpful guy. It also helps that he had just the amp I was looking for
Packaging was outstanding: the amp probably didn't even know it was on a trip in that double box with all those packing peanuts. Earl even made the effort to get the amp shipped out on a SATURDAY MORNING. What more can I say? I would feel completely comforatable doing a deal of any $$$$ amount with Earl.
EDIT: The massive, high-end power cable he sent with the amp is awesome, too.
