The speakers are brand new - I do not believe that AC4L, will take
the risk of being sued for false advertising. They do sale new items
from time to time on buy-outs.
This is from a thread at Home Theater Shack >
"In addition, the deal on the Focal Chorus combo for $1000 is a silly good deal. These are A-Stock Speakers that were originally destined to be sold at Sound Advice. When Tweeter/HiFi Buys/Sound Advice went under, these Speakers were in flux until Mark swooped in and grabbed them."
AC4L, also states a 5 yr warranty - you should be able to use a Focal authorized repair dealer.
Item condition: NEW
Warranty: 5 Year
All in all, AC4L is a good company with good customer service. They have
been in business a long time.
