For those of you who live in the States and are hesitant to order from China HiFi, don’t be. Mr Lee is great to work with and China HiFi is a wonderful company to do business with. He and I exchanged several emails and he always answered within a few hours. He was always courteous and friendly. As far as the company, I ordered my amp on July 1st with an expected delivery date of July 19th. (I live in the state of Iowa). I received it on July 10th, earlier than expected. It was triple boxed and well protected. Great communication and shipping!!! Now as far as the amp goes. I am 70 years old and have owned several nice tube systems over the years (McIntosh, Dynaco, etc) and let me tell you the Willsenton R8, to my ears, sounds just as good or even better than the waaaay more expensive ones out there. Right out of the box, with the stock tubes only having about an hour of run time, the sound is rich and full. It will only get better as the tubes break in. I will eventually roll different tubes in. Thats the fun thing about tube amps. As far as build quality, it is superbly built. All hand built with point to point wiring the way amps should be built. Tube biasing is a breeze. On some of my previous amps, you had to get inside the chassis to get to the bias ports and hook up a volt meter to bias the tubes. With this just flip a switch on top, use the enclosed screwdriver, adjust the needle on the front of the amp until it is in the middle, and you are set. You cannot go wrong w...

I was looking for a high end cd player and the Bada hd28 seem to fit the bill, top loader,solid build, 4 different type outputs. The one I was really interested in was the tube output and I have not been disappointed. Only had the player for a couple of weeks but and its a big but, lets just say I have stopped using roon and started playing my cds all over again. Its very good and very enjoyable listening. Highly recommended.

First let me say that I have owned my share of decent hifi equipment and most recently coming from a higher end, all Rega system. In my desire to test out the Tube Amplifier waters and a good amount of research, I decided to take a shot at the Willsenton R8, and having not heard nor seen one in the flesh. I can tell you unequivocally, this a a very nice amplifier period and not just for this kind of money. For what I paid, this is a screaming bargain. I am exceptionally pleased that I one, tried the Tube amp waters, and two, that I purchased this amp. What relatively few reviews there are, they pretty much got it all right. This is a full range, top to bottom, sounding amp and I have the EL34 model, highs, lows, it is all in there. Yes there was hesitance to purchase sight unseen from across the world, but I am glad I took the chance. Simply a great amp for music lovers. The communication with China HiFi to me was excellent and from what I have read, must be an improvement from the past. Seems like they have a new customer rep and she has been great (Sophia). It took a little time to "Process" but once I received my tracking number and notification of shipment, it was extremely fast, like 4 days to my door. If you are thinking about purchasing this amp through China HiFi, do it! you will not be disappointed. Regards, Jim

I ordered a week ago and got it today ( from China to NC USA) The Preamp is beautiful! nicely made, it does looks expensive. No hum or distortion, the sound is warm, crisp....... is a wow! compare to my other preamp. the amplifier is an Aragon 8008 200 watts/channel. The sound is much better that I anticipated. This preamp is awesome!

Read many reviews on the R8, my old tube amp was playing up so decided to take the plunge, glad I did. This amp is something special, it wins easy over any amps I have had in the past, even one costing over £2000.00. As soon as the R8 clicks into life, what comes out is just pure music and very easy to listen to. Fantastic, matches up with the Sound Artist LS3/5A speakers which I purchased last year.

After a slight release delay by Chinese customs, I finally received my R8 earlier today. Fantastic sound at start up and this is even before burn in. First time to use KT88 tubes which I find to be more fun sounding and punchy than my 2A3 and EL34/6CA7 tube amps. Will start rolling in NOS preamp tubes and EL34 power tubes after burn in.

I bought from China-hifi for the first time. The delivery of the was fast, the packaging perfect and the flow of information also good. I am delighted with the quality of the Shuguang E6CAQ7 Plus and 12AU7-T. I compared to KT77 and 12AU7 from Gold Lion, Mullard, Tung Sol, BTB and Psvane. The amplifier is a Simply Italy by Unison (single ended Class A). I cannot understand the prejudices against tubes from China. There are wonderful devices from China, as well as from Italy, Switzerland, Germany, etc., etc. We can play beautifully on a big piano without nationalism. In any case, my experience with China Hifi was very positive.

Firstly, I would like to thank the staff at china hifi for providing timely responses to my questions before and after purchasing my valve amplifier (R8/KT88 version). This is my first valve amp, despite purchasing and listening to hifi for 30 years or more. I can confirm the build quality of the amp is of a high standard (externally). The amp provides a warm, expansive and sibilance free presentation; there is depth in the music and instruments sound natural and real. I have partnered it with a budget cd player, streamer and speakers for my bedroom secondary system. It has made re-listening to my CDs a daily event!
