I sent my K701s down to fl. over two weeks ago for a rewire I was told would take 2 or 3 days... my last email was never answered and they never pickup the phone.

has anyone else had this experience? is this standard?
will my headphones return to me?

Isn't RAL that company that was kicked out of Audiogon for scamming so many customers?

Well if you read the last page or so on that thread Kees posted, it seems a person got their 'phones back in February of this year, and they sent them out last year Dec. 24th.

I got some cables from RAL sometime ago and they are first quality. Then I read about the problems and I actually called and talked to Brad about it. It seems it was an issue with his wire supplier.

A week an a half ago I took a leap of faith and order a mini to RCA cable to connect my iPod dockinig station to my GS-1. I asked Brad to timed the shipment for yesterday since I was going to be out of town all last week. My cable arrived yesterday as promised.

I e-mailed him this morning to let him know about receiving the cable and I just got a reply an hour ago.....

So far I have not expereince any probelms with him at all.

Brad is a crook.


He took my $230 for a cable for Senns last September and didn't send me anything. He kept saying "it will be shipped out this week" to keep me on the hook, until PayPal cancellation expires (40days). Then he simply disappeared around Dec 2007.

If I were you, I'd certainly cancel Paypal payment as fast as possible.

So either he'll follow through with that "promise," or he'll keep re-using that excuse for the next year or so.
