What exactly is a "B" stock? Thanks.
"B" normally refers to Blemished items. This typically refers to something that was damaged prior to reaching the store, possibly at the factory, during shipping, etc... Visually imperfect, but functionally fine.
Different stores may define this in different ways.
Also, because stores can't re-sell a returned item as "new"- because it has been opened, they will often re-sell it as B stock. Many of the B stock items may not have even a blemish.
With Outlaw audio, their B-stock may include items that were returned after they were auditioned in-home.
I purchased a B-stock ICBM from outlaw and it was in pretty bad shape and didn't quite work right. The immediately replaced it with a new unit that was blemish-free and in perfect working order. Take your chances I guess... I'm happy!
Thanks for the info. I think I'll shy away from "B" stock items.
Tyler - I just love the line:
"There are 10 kinds of people in the world:
Those that get binary, and those that don't. "
Maybe I'll get the Rotel 1000001111 receiver.
