The Heresy IIIs I recently bought were from an Ebay seller who advertised them as new with factory warranty although "open box." I actually called the guy (Nevada somewhere) and he said they were unopened but dinged boxes…free shipping so I figured I'd take the plunge for around 1500 bucks, and I wound up with a pair of "Capitol Edition" Ebony finished versions (I'd simply ordered black) that "list" for about $2500 (and they survived a corner ding on one box). Not consecutive numbers, but within' 10 numbers of each other and signed (!) by the same assembly person. They sound great by the way, and are a weird dark purple-ish hue. I like it. As of the last couple of days that seller still has them listed, in black, but no clue if you'd get the groovy "special" ones I have…as, clearly, I must be special.
