Was just wondering… if I went ahead and purchased the above from eBay, (seller says it’s brand new but bought while ago and hasn’t been registered… would I be able to register it with Naim and get some kind of warranty?
AFAIK, the contract of warranty is made between the original purchaser and the dealer, and is underwritten by Naim. On that basis, the warranty runs from date of original sale and is contingent upon having the purchase receipt to establish date of sale. So you should ensure that the seller provides you with their purchase receipt so you can benefit from the balance of what’s left. The extended warranty is only for the original purchaser.
My understanding is that if it is advertised as working and you pay using an option that provides buyer protection (such as PayPal), then you have recourse via eBay/PayPal if the contract is not fulfilled.
As @Suedkiez says. Also check the seller’s feedback. If the seller has lots of good feedback over a reasonable period, especially if it’s for audio gear, then it’s probably safe to go ahead, but use PayPal to pay.
Yeah, I’ve seen the Peter Tyson refurbed ones for £999.
But this was brand new, sealed and unused… for £950!!
But then, no warranty. Seller said he had plans for it; purchased it a long time ago. Plans never came to fruition; warranty lapsed… But it’s obvious he didn’t buy it from a dealer but most likely another eBayer - so really don’t know just how old this thing is???
Asked for photos and got a pic of the sealed outer brown Naim box. Really wanted it and was about to pull the trigger until he said the above.
So this is my quandary… especially when I can currently get 20% off a Sonos and have, literally brand new direct from msnufacturer - with warranty???
If I buy this - and a month later something happens, I’m screwed - with no recourse to any help
When I asked about the receipt, he said he purchased it on eBay and didn’t get the original receipt? Yet he advertises it as ‘Brand New & Sealed’? - which is a misrepresentation really… should’ve been listed as used?
Anyway… I think I’ve dodged a bullet there. Too many red flags. If it wasn’t ‘covid season’ and work was more consistent, I would have taken a gamble at £950 for a sealed, unused Muso 2. However right now, can’t afford to take those chances like I used to!!
