    Well it's a good deal because it's cheaper than new and rarely seen used. The ring really helps flatten out imperfect vinyl and does make a difference.

    So why would you pay such a premium for a BW2? Are they discontinued and no longer available from EC? I did a Google search earlier today and it said something like $1289 new or some such.

    Edit - Ahh I went back and read a few posts I missed. Looks like it's super hard/impossible to get one. Still, the price seems out of whack for a unit that isn't perfect.

    Mine arrived today. Looks like new. Well finished, knurled accents are nice. Nice weight to it. $80 looks as crazy as ever. Looks nice to me for the recertified price.

    Not sure how people feel about r/Avexchange deals, but I've seen a lot of headphones moving through this Texan reseller and I figured somebody might be interested. The rundown is that he works for a resell company and they get a lot of headphones, they're tested and resold if they work. Condition ranges from great to needs replacement pads/cables.

    Ask about earpads / cables condition before you pull the trigger.

    I've seen this store on Ebay @Yeskey and wondered what was up. Thanks.

    Yeah, his ebay account is renewlogic, I figure he sells stuff off Avexchange first to avoid the ebay fees, as they can get pretty nasty selling in bulk. Don't know him personally.

    I can see where the confusion would come in when msommers links his own ads just above his post and gets 5 likes.

    It definitely is a head-scratcher if you're an outsider, but that's the thing; one of these people seems to be basically a completely new outsider, the other at least posts around in other threads. I don't know if posting your own sales here is a sort of by-pass of the requirements of the actual sales forum, but I can see why they got disliked at least.

    I figured it was either something along those lines, or people just like msommers gear better. I only posted on the topic at all as I was kind of curious.

    I was wondering what the dislikes to my post were about. When I saw msommers post, I seem to have mistaken it as approval to post my own sales. Apologies to all for my offence.

    Sorry to be a pain in the ass.

    To be fair I think the prices actually are deals at below average market pricing. Mods can delete if they feel it's warranted, apologies in advance.

    If it makes a difference, I can vouch for Velomane. He's local to me and a good guy.
