The used, like new set looks brand new to me. It didn't look like it had even been opened. The outer box is scuffed up though so that may be why it couldn't be sold as new.
Waiting to play with new kit can be sooo hard
. At least this isn't too bad, purchasing skis at end-of-season sales really really suck, you have to wait half a year to play with them.
@hatlesschimp: For reference, I got my 21 for under $160 and 11's for under $75 at my local dealer (when you are out there haggling). I'm getting the x200 instead of the x300 but again for reference, I got it for under $355, perhaps you can expect at least 10% off of what Amazon is selling the x300 for too.
The Azur is a solid AVR. The local dealer showed it to me when I was looking at the Minx and it was rock solid. Even at high volume it didn't seem strained in the slightest, just clear and articulate as was at low volume. It doesn't come with DRC however, though that might not matter to you.
