How can I punish this Chinese audio dealer

I ordered three pairs of tubes from him last year.

The dealer used to respond to my e-mail within 2 days with fast shipping.

The Psavne Acme 805 tube went bad after 7 days of use.

But with claim of bad tube, he stopped responding to me at all..

I sent him 6 e-mail within 7 days.

Will Paypal refund be the best way to punish him?

I received Acme 805 tube yesterday.

PSVANE Acme Serie 805 Vacuum Tube High-end tube Be

Please note that both tube are made by same company Psvane.

Cossor valve was league above from stock tube with refined bass and deeper bass.

As soon I replaced Cossor Valve 805 with Acme 805 today, I noticed clear window of transparency and more details.

It seem like I had inserted pre amp since the change was so drastic.

The soundstage got wider with 3-d holographic with clear window.

It had not been burnt yet so it may be possible to change its sound for the next 2 weeks.

But the first impression is very positive.

I will keep you informed of the progress.

I also have pair of NOS United 805 tubes which I had not used yet.

After Acme got fully broken in, I will also compare it with NOS United.

It took me 10 min to go through your long thread.

At least Amazon, Ebay, Paypal try to be on the buyer’s side.

That is important.

You had gone through lot of deals.

I will not try to buy from outside  Conus.

But I have got no choice in new Chinese tubes.

Rather harsh punishment given that Yoko was Japanese but still best post of the day.

Send him the Yoko Ono Box Set.
LOL, LOL,  LOL,I don't know who's suggestion is more torture mine or yours, the dealer would still end up with a terrific headache!
You should ask if he would adopt you. Or does that sound like cruel and inhumane punishment?

I received a replacement Acme 805 tube from the dealer on free shipping on 21st, January.

It sounds fine after playing for 3 hours.

I can recommend this dealer to the forum member after free replacement of defective tube.
