Default Is this a good deal?

i just bought this;
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...m=270274496635
what do you guys think? did i get shafted? looks good to me, but i am clueless about class d amps

i'm going to use to to power some minimus 7's for monitoring from a motu 896.

what are the best adapters to go from 1/4" to rca mono? should they be shielded?

that is the same amp that was covered in this thread:
Another Tripath Amplifier from China
The board sure looks nice. But so far I don't know of a report how it sounds.

Oh no --- I wished you would have read the thread regarding this
Amp from China.

- They cannot speak enough english to handle orders correctly
- they cannot deliver in time
- they cannot deliver working amps (mine at least was not working)
, right channel made a pulsing noise when amp was switched on.
- they change member nicks at ebay - I see again another seller but same products and same shop layout.

I made a complaint again at paypal.
If you have money to throw away: just order !!
If one amp arrived pleasing the buyer - the thread regarding that another amp from china would be placed in first rankings. I think the most buyers either waiting for their amps or their amps also arrived in not working condition...

If you would like to buy cheap stuff from China, perhaps you should ask the seller questions first to check out if they can write English "appropriately". - tip no.1

I am a Canadian working in Hong Kong as a Sourcing Engineer and I come across so many #@! Chinese suppliers who sell me fake ICs.

Actually, to their defense they don't even know its fake......

Like the tainted milk powder scandal in the news.

Anyways, if you would like to buy cheap audio stuff, you can drop me a line at cato_lo@ozervi.com. I maybe able to help because my job gives me a chance to locate some of the reliable suppliers in the mainland.

Thanks for your offer - I will keep it at my ears ...

I bought this amp presented with acceptable layout at ebay.com.
Payment possibility over Paypal gave me another trust. So I think 50 Dollars all incl. would be not a hard lection in any case.

Their poor communication style and mistakes at the beginning of
email correspondence after buying was just a secondary concern.
In the main I would be pleased if the amp arrived O.K.

-------------------

But you are right - I also heard from well known business man that the chinese have their own "style" and methods to act
in markets. You have to search and choose very reasoned before
stumbling in risky business.
