I agree!!! WE should have known WE would have these type problems when WE let the lower classes participate. Some of them actually work for their money!!! Can you Imagine!!! They are al;ways whining about high prices and wanting value for money and truth in the ads. They even keep their equipment for months and sometimes years without upgrading. Hell, I even saw one of those type members shopping at Best Buy!!! (I just happened to be passing by, of course I didn't enter) High-end audio is going to hell fast. WE have to be more selective.
Elizabeth, The reason buyers are becoming more and more picky is because the selling side is becoming more and more like ebay, trying to pass off a 6/10 piece of crap as a 9/10 beauty. This BS gets old real fast. Even though the seller tells you to send it back for a refund it will set you back $100 or more in shipping to find out it wasn't what you thought it would be. All I can say is wait until it happens to you. It has urged me to buy more equipment new instead of used. It is unfortunate Audiogon does not tighten up a little to keep people honest. For those who remember Art Bender's Audiomart, to become a member you needed a sponsor, so not everyone can start buying or selling. If you were misrepresenting as a seller or not following thru as a buyer you soon became history. I made many purchases back then without a single problem, but what is going on here is scary and it is only the beginning.
