Speakers On Wheels?
Make sure that two out of the four wheels are lockable in place  
Should we care if a piece of equipment comes from a pet-free, kid-free, smoke-free home?
If you are buying a pair of headphones, you might want to know if the Prior owner uses hair gel or some other fragrant addition! Happened to me and it took several months to go away!  
Do you live in a rural or smaller area with no Audiophile Support Nearby??

what's a good Gan / Class D option under 3k? Nilai or Ncorex500?
