interesting eBay "listing" for tube amp
 
Just found this. The "seller" is really trying to make a point with the listing. I won't spoil it for everybody, but it makes for a good discussion.

Here's the link:

By the way, the listing picture is hilarious.

"SAFETY output transformers" LOL

wait, sorry, that's "EXPENSIVE SAFER SAFETY output transformers". can't beat that for the price.

ENORMOUS. UNBELIEVABLY HUGE!!!!!

It was interesting, as I read this, I kept thinking, "This guy doesn't sound British, he sounds Chinese." Lo and behold...

He mentions "Mexican" tube amps. Are there actually any Mexican tube amps?

That was a good one! Really, I almost rolled on the floor laughing.

This one I like-

"EXCELLENT HUMAN VOICES + TREBLE , WHEN THERE IS A LOUD BASS DRUM ,
AT THE SAME TIME
( If there isn't any LOUD bass drum, then the HUGE difference in human voices will be much smaller )"

Seriously, that amp looks like an Audio Space/Duntonic/Houston amplifier from HongKong - http://www.audiospace.com.hk/?langid=175

This one's great:

"THE AMPLIFIER MUST WORK WHEN YOU SWITCH IT ON.
THE AMPLIFIER MUST NOT BURNT OUT (REALLY, SERIOUSLY) YOUR SPEAKERS
OR ELECTROCUTE THE USER."

Sad, isn't it? So many super-expensive hi-fi amps, and this is the requirement for them to be sold. At those prices, it seems that few even listen, they just look at the tag.

Also:

"EXCELLENT BASS (if you are using any half decent BIG speakers.) "

well, duh...

OMG that has got to be one of the stupidest auctions I have ever seen.. ROFLMAO :D

I think I'll run out and get me some of them new fangled safer safety transformers so I can keep from electrocuting speakers not to mention the human beings. They're so huge... :devilr:

Now I can save thousands of dollars by deleting the ungodly expensive safer safety transformers, land o' goshen I'd never figure that one out. I guess that is why the second most expensive amplifier I ever built didn't have any. :xeye:

I figure that amplifier shouldn't cost more than a quarter of the opening bid price and perhaps even less.

And I thought people spending over $100K for a pair of Keegons were nuts.. hehehe :smash:

Mr. Lee retired and Lee's no longer carries tube amps. :(
