    Has anyone risked Amazon Warehouse..."Good" condition? Worth buying and if it's truly horrible, send it back?

    I've gotten "good" condition stuff and it was just the packaging that was damaged, the actual item was perfect. So depending on the discount, sure!

    I'm leaning toward taking the risk. Usually there are notes indicating whats "wrong" with it. Damaged box, 1/4" mark on front, etc. this has no notes

    Good choice. The return policy is so liberal that worse case you just have to wait a few days for a refund.

    For me, as soon as I hand to the UPS store guy and he scans in and gives me receipt...I get a refund notification within the hour. Another reason to love Amazon

    I've had Amazon say "keep it and we'll refund you anyway!" I wanna hate them, but they're so nice the way they come for my wallet.

    Yes, they're evil. But so conveniently evil! I preordered Andrew Bird from them and they offered me a $5 credit toward Amazon Pantry if I choose delayed delivery (a week later maybe). So I did because I was interested in Amazon Pantry. Album showed up Saturday, the day after it would have anyway.

    I have P4s and they sound pretty good for their size, I imagine these are really good for that kind of setup.

    Just wondering if there is a place on the forum that alerts members of good buys? I saw that Music Direct has a great buy on the Simaudio Moon 110 phonostage. Sometimes buys like this and others go under the radar. Many times one of us may see a great buy but have no need for the product. Someone else may be looking and not know of it. Just thinking that a thread dedicated to good buys hardware and software would help the community as a whole. What do you guys think?

    I know the goto phonostage here is the Vincent. I just thought the sale of the Simaudio Moon 110 for $325 at Music Direct would be another option. If looking for a phonostage the Simaudio at 1/2 off is worth a look. I have heard it at the dealer and thought it was pretty nice sounding.

    We have a vinyl deals thread. I'd be down for a hardware deals thread.
