Hey Hey!

Does anyone have any experience buying from or (Frank, thanks for your endorsement of THL.)

I almost bought something from THL very recently, but I didn't know them to be reputable and they were overseas. So, at the last minute, I went with someone else. If these are reputable, honest companies, then we're both losers.

Thanks all,

James & THL are both very small companies, so I think they can not be very consistent in costomer services.

I've bought some good stuff from them, they are basically honest & reliable. I've never got any problems with them.

James makes their products by their own factory. THL sells most of the hi fi stuff which are all imported (a lot of them are from your countries).

Like you guys, I'm only an end customer of these stores. The only difference is that I live in the same country with them, thus far less risk & possible troubles.

Hope this helps and gook luck.

I have recently heard a 300B amplifier with the standard version of the James 6123, it sounded very nice and had no audible deficits of any sort. The transformers are very nicely finished as well.

I used the 6123HS in an E180F-EL84 project and am currently working on a headphone amp coupling the 6115HS to a 6C45-PE. In both cases James look, measure and sound terrific. The owners replied to my e-mail inquiries and were pleasant and helpful to a fault during a heavy production run. Very highly recommended company and product.

hi I have james smallest outputs, beautifully finished, and fairly cheap for the quality.

I have only tried them briefly, but they sounded fine to me, based upon the finish, I would wholeheartedly recommend them.

See also silk transformers, the measurements are astounding. I would like to hear them.

Thought I'd add something to this thread.

Here's a price quote directly from James. You may have to be stubborn as they suggested I contact Euphonia first.

I came to James Audio and buy 4 pcs 6123Hs for my 300B tube amplifier. It was very nice.
