RE: "fine products"

I'm sorry if you felt put upon by my post.

Some of my impressions of the quality of the (and the risk of counterfeit) components, on these Chinese ebay boards came from a post on the Tube DIY Asylum which I read about five years ago (link below) where the poster said he had to replace all the capacitors which his ST-35 boards came stuffed with to get it to sound good.

As for dismissing ebay as "some junk shop", I wasn't the one who did that, but you're implying it by saying it in your reply to me. To repeat what I said, ebay can be fine to purchase from, but one has to use caution, know what they're buying, and who they're buying it from.

That said, I'm glad you got your issue sorted out.
