"You cannot handle the truth"

Should anybody be weary about any equipment (mostly new) that are barely used, no way near the usual break-in period, before putting it on sale?

Like, why would anybody used it for, say, 70 hours or so, then decided to sell?  It's always a red flag to me, as if it's some kind of lemon, some forgotten freight being fall off from a truck, or the equipment sounds woeful....   I would not think any legit dealer would be that casual neither.

Not to upset anybody.... would love to hear some reasonable explanations such that I don't make the wrong assumption...
I bought a pair of Maggie’s one week old cause the wife said too big. Ha happy wife happy life. 

Lets see , kidney sold to buy The Gate.

So right about 5k right now then.....
Seriously though.

I have bought my own fair share of goodies on the way to audio nirvana only to find either they just did not gel in my system for whatever reason or in some cases they sounded just plain awful!

I do not believe in sticking with it in the hope I will come round to the sound. Nope, if it did not hit me right away out it went. Maybe not the best path but I am sure I am not alone.

I would say right now though that I am a lot closer to audio nirvana than nervosa.
@jetter : "Selling a kidney to buy audio gear, ridiculous. By the way, just out of curiousity, whats the going rate for a kidney?"

Its a sellers market but just like everything else it depends on who you know. And don't forget, you can only sell one!
Any number of reasons - someone loses their job unexpectedly, or put together a system for a significant other who suddenly isn't significant anymore, piece of equipment doesn't play well in a system even though all reviews and preliminary auditioning at other locations indicated it would, etc
