Add janeh2100 to the list, bought some 2sj77 FETs, they were vertical MOSFETs not lateral and the pinout was wrong!. Sent an email explaining and they still look to be on sale.

Edit. +1 for jimsaudio, he seems to know what he is doing.

Just have to stick to the known sellers I guess.
There is an ohms test for the opa627 I recall, all of mine have tested good from audjade, sound great too.

Polida is a fake seller! I once bought some "genuine" expensive TO3 pairs from him, fakes ofcourse. Problem was I stored them for over a year before unpacking...... Bye bye money!


Kind regards,
Sjoerd

I unfortunately bought two expensive PCM1704K dacs from polida2008. They were fake! Not working at all.

I sent them back. I got a replacement. DEAD again. Shipped then all back for refund: first time parcel was sent back to Europe. Months passed... they gave me another address and I shipped again. With difficulties (I contacted China post for help) it was delivered this time. Soon they wrote that chips were soldered and damaged! .... these are SMDs and were professionally desoldered and delivered exactly as received.

Accidentally I replaced them by others bought in Germany and they worked perfectly.
Also got another couple for another project in USA and they were also fine. Accidentally.

Avoid polida2008 carefully!

The same scam artists continue to to sell junk month after month, year after year, while Ebay shows no interest in stopping them.
As long as Ebay gets their listing fees and commissions, they are happy!
And that says a whole lot about Ebay!

Hi,
Would you have a link to ' Jim's Audio ' Ebay shop or even an ebay item number (found to the right of the heading DESCRIPTION on the item page) ?

It's definitely worth supporting an honest seller.
