wow

I just reported the item too, explaining in the short number of allowed characters that I just returned the item due to it's dangerous nature, not because I "burned my hand on the tube".

What I piece of work.

Hi,

 

I've been following your "adventure" from the beginning, and it's hard to believe that this guy may still sell his product. Just by the language he's using, I can't see anyone wanting to do business with him. Obviously, the way he writes English tends to show it's not his mother tongue. I am a francophone, and I'd be shy to write like this.....If you don't know....ask !!!!!

 

Anyway, not only I am glad you recovered your money, but also that you let the community here know about him....

Simply amazing. I hope this guy loses his ebay account. I edited the F words

 

"And, its relist item, one f*****g guy bought my item and he touch the tube and burn his hand, and leavel a negative to me. its f*****g kidding, any body know the tube was f*****g hot, and the 6AS7 power tube was 3A hi current on the filament, it must hot, so, I will warning any one if new for tube amplifier, don't touch the tube."

He wants an "honest buyer only" ? LOL !!!

 

He should slap a "Made in Afghanistan" label on the back.

PS: I also reported this item as dangerous.

This has been a fascinating saga to take in over the past 15 minutes. as the victim of ebay fraud in the past i can relate and would love to see this piece of work thrown off the site. will be filing a complaint myself for the use of such language has affronted my delicate sensibilities. And i love that this story has a happy ending. cheers boys!!!

If anyone can figure out how to send the pictures to someone @ ebay that understands/gives a crap...be my guest!!

I love the statement in the auction

 

"comes from smoke free home of an avid audio enthusiast"

 

I wonder if he can assure potential purchasers that their homes will continue to be smoke free if they buy the amp? - Based on this thread I doubt it somehow!!

Looks like a cleaner build this time around but the circuit doesn't look to be any different.

 

Maybe Dr Gilmore can weigh in with his opinion of the CanuckAudioMart ad's internal build pic ?

The wiring does look a bit better, but the whole package still looks very amateurish.  The woodwork is horrible.

Beside the amateurish, I have never seen anyone building a tube amp would mounting those component in a wodden plate "expertise" like he did.
