Yes great stuff, I had over the years not only the TAD-60 a TAD-150 Pre Amp that was on par with a McIntosh C2300 I also had three of the 125 Hibacki mono blocks that I really regret selling. Paul also rebuilt a Fisher that my son still has today. I wish I had known him longer.

My first tube amp was bought from Paul - Cayin TA30. Paul was the distributor as Cayin was just entering the US market, he would put his own mods to the amps like focus control, bias points etc. They were beautifully made tube amps from China. He sold quite a number of these and as the story goes a big west coast dealer cut a deal with Cayin and what became Prima Luna. Look at the earlier P L and TA30 - virtually identical. Together they effectively cut out Paul’s distributorship.

Did not know this, it ties a few things together, I do not know what Pauls ultimate demise was, but I remember him posting a cartoon of an Eskimo trying to sell Ice out of his Igloo on his web site shortly before he passed. So sad if this was the basis.
