Arrow Buying New Sonos Connect:Amp vs. Used

I'm planning on purchasing 3 to 5 Sonos Connect:amp units, and was looking at possibly saving some $ buy purchasing used ones from Ebay.

Does anyone know if there has been any recent hardware upgrades to the Connect:Amp devices (other than change the name from Zoneplayer 120, and the new box appearance) that I should be aware of buying used devices?

thanks

According to Sonos, the ZP120 is the same as the Connect:Amp, just cosmetic differences:

I'm in the same boat and looking at eBay to save $50-$75 per amp. A few sales look to be offering new in box devices. Did you end up purchasing from eBay and if so how was your luck? Thanks

Yes, I ended up buying 3 Connect Amps on Ebay. All "used", but did save up to $100 off the new price, and they work just as good as new.
So far no issues
Good luck
