          This is kind of funny regarding the SE amplifier I had for sale.
          Anyone want to try to better this story, go for it. I sold this item
          to a guy that watched it lapse on ebay for $299 plus shipping! I
          needed to clean house badly. It was very nice looking and sounded
          great though the few DAC memebers tht heard it only heard it for a
          few minutes due to a bad diode.

          Anyway, I tossed in a pair of EH KT90s, Sovtek 6550WAs, and a pair of
          Shuguang 6l6GCs(surprisingly sounded very nice). I also included an
          old Mullard made Amperex 12AU7 that had about 10 hours on it. Several
          power cords and a variety of nice by pass caps etc....

          I kept checking the Fedex site and entering the tracking number, but
          it stopped on the 24th of last month. The guy who bought it was a
          good faith kind of guy and kept telling me not to worry because it
          would eventually get there, but after a week and three days past the
          ETA, I called claims and the lady on the phone told me in the fedex
          truck my item was on burst into flames while driving and all content
          was lost. It was quite a mixture of emotions. Part of me wanted to
          laugh hysterically because the chances of this happening are slim to
          none, and part of me was about as aggravated as a person can get
          thinking about all the time and money I put into it. Just crazy! As
          it stands right now, there is a claim with my name on it sitting in
          Fedex Dallas. They guy who bought the amp has been very good with the
          news, but I can't help but feel sorry for the guy. It was a really
          nice looking amp! He asked if I could rebuid it for him, but it would
          be impossible for the $299 he paid for it.

          Anyone able to top that one? Just for consoling purposes...LOL! !
