Refurbished stereo components
« on: October 23, 2020, 03:35:20 PM »
Curious what the thoughts are on buying refurnbished for home amps, receivers, CD players, turntables, etc... Manufacturer's warrenty is still honored but also still a bit of a risk. Interested in hearing experiences with this.

I've been doing it for years, and never had an issue. With the same warranty, what do you have to lose?

Both are refurbs and were delivered in brand new condition and are functioning great  :headphones:

That’s great news. I’ve been watching some Yamaha HTR’s on that site for months now, but keep coming up with reasons not to pull the trigger. What kind of packaging did they come in? All original accessories?

Good question! The only noticible difference was the box that was shipped for the refurbs are all-in-one-box that has a Yamaha sticker on it as opposed to the "un-refurbs" that have Yamaha printed on the box that sits inside the shipping box. I guess what I'm trying to say is you don't get the same cardboard box on the refurbs  ;D

Thanks for that info. I recently inherited a dead Yamaha CD player from my father in law. Vintage 1987. I was going to toss it but since I also found the remote I figured it might be worth the repair. $75 for a complete overhaul and it is so sweet sounding. Even has a nice warmth to it. Repair guy said it will blow away anything made today and I’m thinking he was right.
