Classic gear from yesteryear; vintage audio standing the test of time.

I agree with you in theory

But if Dave Gillespie was selling his boards, or Jim McShane were selling tubes on ebay I wouldn't hesitate to buy from either one of them.

You do have to know what you're doing though, and buying these boards in question from a Chinese seller is a risk. As gkargeen found out, there's little to no support offered, and as I speculated in another reply, there's the likely potential for counterfeit components to be installed.

Still, for some who don't have the soldering skills, or are in a rush, the Chinese products prove to be too tempting to resist.

So, where ebay is concerned, you're certainly correct in cautioning, "Caveat Emptor"
