Sold a component and bought it back, am I nuts?


I sold my brand new naim 5si integrated about a month ago, by sold, I mean I traded it in. I was looking on website of company I traded it into, and noticed in used section. I inquired about it and was told it was indeed the Amp I had traded. They had to open box up to check it out before resale, despite it being new. Anyhow, they had it listed at a greatly reduced rice. Me, knowing it was my former amp, I scooped it back up...am I a genius? Lol...

Why did the seller put it up for sale at $800 less what they paid you?

Maybe the seller was running a money laundering operation¬†ūüėŹ

Have done that at least twice, Clayton M300 monos and TEAD Vibe/Pulse. I liked almost everything each of those products brought to my system but, in the end, each had one niggling attribute that was probably what caused me to sell them in the first place and what was the final straw causing me to eventually move on to something else. In summary, I would have saved time and money had I trusted my gut and stuck with my first decision.

@elliottbnewcombjr I did not do anything with it, as I did not receive any money. I am recieving my amp back that was traded in a month ago. However, should I decide to sell it on my own, then yes, I'll see $$$$

I'd say it was a great move, a $1999 AMP FOR $999.  It was brand new Still sealed in box upon trade in. The merchant had to open box to inspect, regardless of it being new. He took photos and placed add in used section. There were no bites, just low ball offers. I saw my Amp in used section and come to find out it was the same one I traded in. So, knowing it's history, I bought it back at the above $999. I was given $1800 for it towards the trade. Show me a better deal!. If I keep it, a win, if I sell it, even bigger win. I will most likely keep it.
