Would you buy a ex-demo or used product at the moment with Coronavirus about?

Well I have just purchased a second-hand amplifier.......
Left for 3 days and then sanitised. What part has put you off?
Surely buying new has just as many complications.

I like to think new is much safer and has been in this country stuck in a box for months whereas ex-demo or used I just think it’s too risky, the fear of catching something or giving a family member something too.

I bought an ex demo CXUHD the Saturday prior to the lockdown. I picked it up from the store and all staff were wearing face masks and gloves. I can’t say I gave it much thought tbh.

The box still has to be picked up and transported to you does it not?

Would not bother me at all, no different to getting your food, someone has stacked that shelf before you picked it up.

Correct, it's how you deal with it when it arrives that matters.
Right now is the time we should be supporting dealers before they go out of business, the lack of ability to audition is, however, a major flaw.
