    Saw that the other day. It's kind of a joke, really, charging full MSRP for a used device.
    Also, TMR's condition rating should add an automatic -2 to what they advertise... They used to offer great deals in the past, but now it's much less interesting, with only rare exceptions...

    I've sold but never bought from them, but consensus seems to be building that buyer might wanna beware.

    I ended up on their weekly Friday email somehow starting about 3 years now. I can't think of a single thing I have clicked through to see the price that was not at least 30-40% higher than it should be, and sometimes more than that. I suppose that's the price of a middle man however.

    To be fair, they recently had good deals on Phonitor X and E. Condition was definitely not 9/10, however.
    I got a PS Audio P3 conditioner for $1000 with them, which was a great price. It wasn’t working properly and asked me to send it to PSA for repair. They kindly offered to refund it if I wanted, which I did.

    They post most (if not all their) listings on ebay slightly cheaper with best offer available. They were willing to knock off $150 off a $1400 item but it was still too high for my cheap ass. It was actually for a PS Audio P3 that I was trying to get for 1000 bucks. So maybe I avoided a bullet there.

    This is actually more expensive than MSRP lol.

    They had something I wanted a couple years ago, something fairly small kinda forget now. Shipping to Canada was about x4 than it needed to be and they also wouldn't budge on the price much.

    I wouldn't trust that they sound the same given the impressions of the MKII. I bought a Gilmore Lite + DPS from @shipsupt many, many years ago and it sure as hell hasn't held up to newer amps like people say the MKII does.

    That is fair.

    I wonder if is due to a difference in the power supplies as the new one is better made. Just a hunch.
