Ebay selling my missing amplifier
Based on the limited data, the guy likely sent his amp back under or not insured. Shipment gets lost. Sender gets upset and either accepts the insured amount or digs in. Shipper could give two hoots because you either declare its proper value or y...

@jmrobbie   Are you a Roon user or an anti-Roon user or somewhere in between? Are you wanting to use the inboard dac of your Mac or external?  
Upgrade Digital Cable Review
Tim, not every cable change is for the better, however, they can and do sound quite different. Try not to forget that the cable passes the analog facsimile of a digital wavestream.

I guess I'm the only person to NOT have had a bad experience? I have had a couple of lost items and they were expeditiously paid. I had a pair of speakers I shipped with a $10k value (unbeknownst to me at $5k each). One speaker arrived perfectly, ... 
Best streamer to replace my Mac Mini?
@audiotroy It's about now where you begin to second guess whether you should have been overly generous...$150 would be a small price to pay today for the chance to unring the bell huh?

Now that we have some data, you should have your attorney contact the appropriate people at UPS. It isnt your responsibility to track down/retrieve the goods. Since you have an open claim, you only need to prove that they most likely sold your goo...

Is the idea of audiophile listening a dying concept as boomers die off?
@audioisnobiggie  I’m going to move to the US, start my own company that manufactures sutures and plaster for casts, and then become a musician. I wonder how much my fans could eventually allow me to compensate myself from my stocks? I’m unsur...

@audioisnobiggie  Aww, I'm such a meanie to the criminals. To a di-k-thing ni--a criminal gangsta, it's all the same thing after that anyways. I always find it interesting how people are capable of behaving when they can be anonymous. Racis...

@audioisnobiggie  Most listeners choose to support the artists who are di-khead ni--er criminals who expect everyone else except for the bitches to make them care about them.  Criminal world is like the opposite of trying to make the best audio ...

@nonoise  Was there a fire sale somewhere on crystal balls? Of course, you are correct. The OP has yet to state how the original lost claim was resolved. I leaped to the conclusion that somewhere during the eight months since it was lost that ...

If the OP received any monetary settlement with the shipper for the lost shipment then he no longer has any ownership claim whatsoever.

I’ll take a guess that the OP underinsured his shipment and whatever he got paid for the gear didnt come close to making him whole.

@czarivey here’s the way it works. If you ship something and say have $1,000 insurance from Fedex and then they lose it, they pay off. You set the value, they pay it(after alot of fighting and arguing), in effect you sold it.
