First, they've been around for years and are frequently mentioned on various A/V sites. Here's one link, intentionally from another site, and intentionally a few years old, just so you can see you're far from the first to ask: http://forums.audiworld.com/showthread.php?t=2655600
And yes, I just bought a hugely discounted AVR from them this morning, and I have very little concern about getting a quality product. In fact, I rationalize that my chances to have
a problem to start with (which is not uncommon these days) has probably
been removed. When you consider the number of a certain model that are available for sale after refurb, it usually
(certainly, not always) means there was a single common problem with that model, and that it has been taken care of.
Some people can't stand the thought of a "problem" ever even existing and wouldn't buy a refurb, but some of those same people wouldn't hesitate to overpay JohnnyAudio1973 in our "gear for Sale" section, just because he's a member here.... and swears his unit was "hardly ever used"
. Me? I'd trust Accessories and save LOTS more
My 8 cents............
LOL, interrupted while typing...and now see you edited it to mean a different site. I'm leaving my post as stands
