I bought some vintage synth batteries from them once, they arrived safely within 3-4 weeks. They had protected the pins with foam even. And as an extra bonus, the DX7 and SQ80 batteries came with a printout explaining how to change them.

It's not really a "guy", but a company in Hong Kong/China that deals in old and new electronics.

Those Chinese sellers sell a LOT of fake chips and I certainly wouldn't buy one without a pic of the actual chip you are buying... If you want a real, original, tested Burr Brown DAC71 let me know...
