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

Brand new a discount of 15% is typical. So I would ask 25% off retail

Some dealers think MSRP is THE price to sell at.
Those dealers may think 10% is plenty to offer as a discount for a floor demo.
A lot depends on current model? discontinued? slow seller? store no longer carrying the brand?
It may be the dealer just sells off demo equipment as many manufactures have a warranty rule of from the time the store GETS the item, not when they sell it. Particularly for demo stuff. So stores well the demo at six months.. etc.

If it is a discontinued model, the price is almost like used. And for an example, a Bryston 4B=SST² now is worth maybe at best 50% of new at this point.
No dealer wants to sell it at that price. But for the buyer.. that is all it is worth.
