Tell your Credit Card company (bank) you made a mistake and think it is a scam site.

They'll know what to do.

For mine, I select a transaction, and a choice is "dispute transaction".

Happens all the time.

Same with me. Payment was through Paypal. I started a grievance through Paypal and just got notice that I'd be getting a refund.
Same experience here: I ordered the product, apparently it was shipped but it never arrived, no response to emails. I ended opening a dispute in PayPal and they returned the money (the seller did not even bother to answer). So, a complete waste of time for nothing.

My experience with them is not positive. I ordered the board more than one month and a half ago. According to the shipping tracking information, the board just vanished when it hit the US. I understad that they are not responsible for this but they do not reply to my messages. I have opened a dispute in paypal. Let's see how it goes.
Mine also did not come. No answers via Mail .. got my money back from PayPal.

Hello, fellow Khadas users. I have read about a pop when the unit it powered on and powered off. Could anyone please shed some light in this regard? Does this happen? I am about to order the board but I just wanted to confirm about the popping issue.

Can anyone here tell me if other USB to USB-C cables work for the Tone Board? The grey one that came with my Tone Board is defective, the USB 2.0 side keeps disconnecting with the slightest movement. Would a USB 3.1 to USB-C work ok, or does it need to be USB 2.0?

Many have reported here in thread its a very low level noice that shouldn't harm any downstream gear, myself have no proplem let it loose power when wearing my head phones with a dedicated head phone amp at a more or less full throttle so as to control a stereo SPL in 86dB area and same is case if i let it feed DSP steered speaker system where power amps is also dialed into about a 86dB SPL area.

Can't see why it shouldn't work alright, inside cable there will be a couple of twisted pairs (SuperSpeed) that sit floating or non terminated at one end whether that is god or bad i really don't know.

Just grab the amazon basics cable and you'll be set. I had the same issue and that's how I solved it.

They should work, yes. Right now I am using it with the cable that came with my phone. In fact, you may be forced to replace the original one, as it causes problems; check out this thread on their forums: Audio cuts out randomly. I've had the exact same issue and fixed it by changing the cable.

Sidenote: I haven't measured it, but there seems to be a problem of some sort with the original cable. Since I changed it with another one, I started using it to charge my phone. I noticed that sometimes, when I touch the cable, while it charges, I get a small electric shock (like the one you get from, say, a 1.5V battery).

I have never received an electric shock from a 1.5V battery, nor a 9V b.t.w.

When one feels a continuous 'sensation' then most likely it has something to do with mains leakage currents (common mode) and when one feels a short 'jolt' it is most likely that person has being statically charged and discharges (him/her-self) via the touched device.
