    Am I missing something here....?

    Has anyone else just watched this listing end.....?

    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/320767944073?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649

    I'm sure some would have considering who the seller was

    According to Beoworld, the 2010 B&O price for these BL Floorstands is/was £335.....and someone's just 'won' a 2nd hand pair for £310 + £15 postage!!!

    Presuming this buyer is in UK, he has just paid £325 for something that he/she could buy BRAND NEW for £335...??!!

    Am I missing something here...???Confused

    Wish ebay had a 'favourite buyer' list Big Smile this is the type of buyer you really want!!!........A complete idiot Laughing

    Unless B&O have suddenly increased the list price considerably that is.....? If they have, my apologies to the buyer if he's on here!Laughing

    It's unbelievable aint it? Laughing

    Now, if B&O have discontinued these stands or they have since jacked up the price by quite a bit, I would then understand....

    ....but failing that, I just cant work some people out at allLaughing

    it's amusing tho...Laughing

    This is not exceptional (good name sells, no doubt)! Same thing for spare parts. How much you reckon Beo 4 battery covers, displays, keypads will cost at the dealers shop and for how much they gonna sell on Ebay?

    I understand the point you are trying to make, Leslie..

    But you are missing my point a little I think....

     ~ Ask yourself this : would you pay £325 for a second hand item (used with some small marks, scuffs etc.), if you could walk into (or call up) your nearest Bang & Olufsen store and order the same item (presuming it's still a current stock product) BRAND NEW for £335....? 

    Surely not..? Erm

    Hands up - these were our stands and we too were somewhat surprised!

    I'm sure all regular eBay users on there will agree totally that prices make no sense at all sometimes.  A BeoVision 6 making only 3 times what a PC2 box did, BeoLab 6000's not selling at a £495 buy-it-now and then selling for £575 on an auction..  I could go on.

    I surely will not, but my point was that people sometimes don't even know or bother what these things cost in "real life" and buy them on Ebay thinking they have a bargain, if you know what I mean. How else can be explain your example with the stands. I know somebody who buy these spare parts for cheap via his dealer and sell them again on Ebay, most of the times for much more then it cost at the dealers shop. Crazy!
