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 I a genius? Lol...


@celtic66 ...and then there's the 'gray areas' in between that ramp up or down...

Ah, some alternative narration.... ;)

@audioguy85  Congrats, but personally I'd not see if that works again too soon...

....if ever. *L*  Right/Wrong/Place/Time and that sort of lightning?

...sure.  I'll watch, ;)

Congratulations on getting $2000 off a new E-280! And congratulations on getting your trade in back for $800 less. Double win!

In the 1990’s I purchased a Classe Audio DR-3VHC pure class A power amplifier from a seller in the original Audiomart magazine (published by the late Walt Bender). About a year later I decided to sell the amplifier and listed it in Audiomart.

Who contacts me to buy it? The original seller! So I sell it back to him. About a year later I see the amp tor sale again and buy it back. Alas, in spite of the DR-3 VHC being a great sounding amplifier, it ran very hot (given its pure class A bias), so I rarely used it. I sold it for the final time a few months later.
