I always use Audiogon to get current used "street" pricing. Being Canadian, your Canadian selection for used hi-fi is limited. There is a heavy premium for buying used stuff from the US. I always use a multiplier of 1.8 to get a US priced item legitimatly to my doorstep:
1.5 for currency exchange x 1.03 for Brokerage x 1.15 for PST & GST + shipping = about 1.8 !
If you can by used local, you do not pay your 15% PST & GST, so keep that in mind.
Yes, NRB's can be upgraded to ST's, but the final price is much more than buying a used 4B-ST to begin with. I have spoken with Bryston myself on the 4B subject, and they indicate that the sonic difference is not insignificant. I suggest you try an hear a 4B-ST to begin with. Minor upgrades are always more costly.
( ... now if you need a pair of used 7B-NRB's , send me an email ! )
Thanks for the advice, the seller mentioned that it can be upgraded (he said for somewhere around $600), I just emailed bryston to find out the exact price.
I'd love to own a pair of 7B-NRB's, however I don't think my budget would allow it (unless you are selling them seriously discounted). Although I just did sell my infiniti, instead of another car I could just go for a big audio upgrade http://www.avsforum.com/ubb/smile.gif
