Default Re: Would you buy Home Theater gear on EBay?

A lot of vendors have lists of authorized resellers on their websites, so I would start my search there, especially if the items are significantly expensive, and I was concerned with obtaining and maintaining factor support (For "vintage" items that I do not expect free support to be available, but I will be interested in parts supply, etc).

I've noticed that the bidding frenzy I observe for some big ticket items (probably caused by a mixture of inexperienced bidders and possibly friends of the seller), causes the "winning" bid to skyrocket to more than I think the items are worth.

He said he is an authorized dealer & by the amount of new gear he has listed I'm guessing he has a B&M store (it shows him in NJ) & also sells online but I don't want to get burned if they don't approve of him selling their gear online.
