Looking at ordering some 845s from this place in China. They seem reputable, but has anybody dealt with them?

I would suggest Grant Fidelity in Canada as your most reliable choice.

Unless you are saving SIGNIFICANT $$ (30%-40%) it makes no sense to buy directly from China as many dealers are selling 'B' stock or worse.

Nearly as large a number of tubes leave the factories in China from out the BACK door as leave going out the FRONT, and you don't want the ones leaving from out the back door.
