hmmm,are you saying that you sold your amp in one day?
i dont get it.
i dont get it.
As impressive as that may seem, in my Audiogon career I've had several amps sell in a day- one in 15 minutes. Frankly, it's a combo of the correct price, market buzz and a little luck. I think the Cayin you referred to was sold for under $1,000- considerably less than the going rate used for that piece.
I second Narrod and Drubin's comments with a resounding DITTO. If I didn't know better (which I don't) I would sure wonder what is the connection between bartokfan and Cayin and/or what is the seeming dis-affection between bartokfan and JOR. I happen to own a JOR (which incidently, I bought in less than 10 minutes on audigon) along with a lot of other very, very fine amps and integrateds (but am not necessarily married to anyone one of them). I personally think very highly of the JOR as I also do of many of my other pieces. The JOR is not the best in the world but neither is it a sows ear. I am definitely going to get me a Cayin A88 just to tell you all how the JOR beat its pants off...and of course you will all just have to take my word for it. One mans silk purse is another mans sows ear or vice versa...
Let's give Paul a break here...
Yes, he's passionate about the Cayin, and I appreciate that. Passion is a good thing, it drives the hobby.
I see many other people, a lot of them some of the more respected people on the site, talking about other brands with a high level of interest and passion as well. A lot of us are guilty of this sort of thing. The Cayin stuff is well put together and attractive, in addition to good sounding. And, no, I have ZERO affiliation with Cayin, or anyone selling it.
I trust Paul enough that when he gets his Cayin, he'll be honest about it, good or bad. I think he deserves the benefit of the doubt here.
Just to chime in here, I just bought a new Cayin A50T
and think it is fantastic!!
I am blown away at what it offers for the price! And I'm
talking sound wise only. Not to mention the remote &
beautiful build quality. I really don't know how they
do it for that price.
New Cayin fan?? You bet! Not trying to promote the
Cayin, just stating is is all that! (for the price)
Have not heard the A88 yet.
