Home Amp/Preamp Asylum

Looking for a new Amp or Preamp? If you're after tubes, post over here.


A dealer does have to pay to keep the lights on and pay for the amp as well.

I didn't mean any slander buying a demo. Like you did say - getting the warranty is part of what you are paying for. And usually it's a higher ended product you're looking at. Not a NAD C316BEE for a few hundred dollars.

Obviously you sound like you're in the biz or know a lot about it. I'm only drawing on my experiences with those I "knew YEARS ago". They sold those classic 70s receivers locally. They usually had factory refurbs. Today with a Pass Labs or Prima Luna - you're better off sending a dealer a new fully functional amp.
