    This may not be the forum to ask but its close enough and I always get an honest answer. How can you tell if you taken delivery of greymmarket or b- stock goods ? I know what the online retailers tell you but ? Serial numbers or lack there of ? Items earmarked for Europe or Canada ? Is there anything but the obvious to look for or watch out for with internet purchases of audio equipment ? Thanks.

    Well they SURELY will not have been ear-marked for Europe! Goods sold in Europe must be CE-approved, be equipped for 230 Volts, different FM 'steps,' and have different AC plugs.
    I would guess the best bet is a keen eye - and having watched CSI a few times[​IMG]

    Depends.. if the unit is factory reburished (b-stock) then it's okay.. cause usually they carry the full manufacturer's warranty. Like www.ac4l.com carries alot of b-stock marantz items. So it depends... grey market stuff.. well forget about the warranty all together.
