You can (and should) report the item as fake/counterfeit/replica to ebay when you're logged in.

How is this any different from the Pass design PCB's floating around in EBAY.

At least this guy is saying that this is an assembled version on the PASS F5 & 700$ he is not making a huge lot of money :-)

Nelson is okay with people using his published designs if - and only if - it's not for commercial interest AND it must be clearly stated that the item is a clone and not the actual thing. The latter helps avoiding that people mistake fake/counterfeit/replica items (and their performance) with the real product.

i doubt this guy is making any money on this amps. F5c boards with dual outputs. panasonic caps. dual 300VA transformers. and a modushop chassis.
thats not cheap. and he don't let anyone belive its the real amp.

to those who think this is ok

no1, he is using the pass name to sell his product

no2 ,wether he is making a big profit or not he is using a schematic that was given to us on this forum in good faith with strict orders against commercial use

"bozos" like this only care about themself /dollars and will ruin it for the rest of us who really do appreciate mr pass and his contributions to this site/our community

1) his name is used to tell it's a pass design only (little grey zone)
2) he use PCB's from this store, and actually a cviller schematic (based on pass schematic) and with that price, i doubt it is any commercial gain.
