In Reply to: RE: 300b set versus 300b parallel set posted by RGA on May 22, 2017 at 23:01:12
thanks for this opinion.
my original post was occasioned by the wish to know whether
a parallel SET 300b amp might be able drive dunleavy 4sc speakers.
(i have a 2A3 X amp and will try again with klipsch la scala speakers
which i haven't listened to in years)
but i am very interested to know who and where that hong kong dealer
is. i will be visiting HK in Oct and mean to go to some audio shops.
online i can only find high end dealers of western gear. will be looking to hear some chinese stuff. i know the controversy about quality on
these forums but i have had two dared amps for about 10 years with
good results. the 300b finally gave out recently and that's why i
was looking again for possible replacement.
if you are reluctant to reply on message board an email would be good
There is nothing wrong with some Chinese amps and there is a lot wrong with other Chinese amps. It just depends on what you are looking at. I know a dealer here who sells amps from China, the US, Europe and Japan - and over the last 5 years the amps with the MOST problems have come from both Japan and the US. Both VERY VERY big name brands - noisy transformers - cold solders, hiss, hums and the sort. Meanwhile they have sold 3 times as many Chinese amplifiers and have had way less returned! So I would not put too much stock into "some guy" on an audio forum who is "guessing" about stuff that he's never heard or used.
This doesn't mean they won't have issue - Bentley has issues, Rolex has issues. So it goes.
A big 22 story or so building with floor upon floor of audio gear is at this address:
Grancastle Commercial Centre, 2T Sai Yeung Choi Street, Mongkok, Kowloon, Hong Kong. I think you have to leave through exit C of the Mongkok MTR but I am not 100%.
Keep this address someplace. It's a little tricky to find because HK is a very busy city and the entrance is not all that big.
There are several other buildings selling gear along with tubes. These shops sell level zero and one Audio Note. The big AN dealer is in Wanchai in the heart of the red light district on Lockhart road.
Audio Note is at
3/F, Beverly House, 93-107 Lockhart Road, Wanchai, Hong Kong.
i will be within walking distance in wan chai
and will probably be at langham place again also
