Wiremold ''NAIM'' powerstrip prices what's this???
I was just wondering if there is a difference between the Wiremold ''Naim approved'' powerstrip sold for $ 56.00 and the one sold on the Allied Electronic website (http://www.alliedelec.com Allied part number 533-9218 for Wiremold part number L10320 )
I know of someone who ordered this unit for $ 31.23 plus $ 8.00 shipping and apparently it is the very same thing...
I do have an issue with anyone selling anything that is ABOVE FULL RETAIL PRICING.
I also find it a touch shady that the unit would be described as a ''NAIM'' powerstrip when there is no mention whatsoever of Naim anywhere on the product of packaging. I understand and agree that this Wiremold product is good, and that Naim ''approved''of it. Checking the Naim website however, the Wiremold strip has been ''replaced'' by a costlier one with apparent input from Naim in it's design.
Still, this $ 31.00 Wiremold strip from Allied seems like an excellent deal, if it is the same one as what is being offered by Audiogon, and if it is, may I suggest that at teh A-gon price of $ 56.00, it is way overpriced and contrary to the Audiogon buddy-buddy philosophy of doing business. Even if we include the $ 8.00 Allied usually charges for delivery ( meaning the strip comes in at around $ 39.00 )We are still talking close to 55% ABOVE USUAL RETAIL PRICING. Not much of a deal in my book.
