    Like the title says, do you trust buying remanufactured or refurbished equipment? Anybody have any experience with this? I'm wondering if its worth it?
    In my case, im specifically thinking about a car amp, but this question applies to any other audio equipment.

    Thanks

    I would get it. Usually what happens when they refurb something is that they keep what works, and throw out what doesn't. Then they either put new parts on, which is how most places do it, or throw other working old parts on to get a whole. They do test it to make sure it works, so go for it.

    Only at a very nice discount. Typically what you would pay for it used in mint condition is my little rule.
    Must read the fine print. Some places sell the items as they get them back from the customer. You could be missing a cable here or an accesory there...
    Personally, there are some places I would trust buying it as if it were new. Like from Stephen Mantz at ZED audio. I still plan on sending my friend's hurt ESX quantum series to him for repair.
