That can actually work out to around $1400 if they’re all B-stock, which mine are. I examined all three and I couldn’t find any marks or blemishes. In fact, they looked brand new.
And, if it means anything, when I spoke to someone at the CableCo., I was told to just go straight to the MC-0.5 when I called about the Venom Defender. He told me of the over 300 they’ve sold, only 5 were returned. By the way, I got mine by ordering directly from High Fidelity.
Also, thanks to @slaw and @lowrider57 on letting me know that it does take time for multiple units to break in. I may go back and try two on a splitter for my integrated, but in all honesty, it sounds great the way it is.
All the best,
