Some prices are insane while others are in the ballpark. Me, personally...I have way too much stuff.

Yes, but there are a number of what I consider suspect ads for high-end expensive stuff with coordinates for the vendor that make little or zero sense.

Look up the following:

http://marche.quebecaudio.com/occasions/index.php/annonces/boulder-amplifiers-boulder-1060/

http://marche.quebecaudio.com/occasions/index.php/annonces/audio-note-m8-phono/

http://marche.quebecaudio.com/occasions/index.php/annonces/burmester-911-mkiii-mono/

http://marche.quebecaudio.com/occasions/index.php/annonces/wilson-audio-sabrina/

http://marche.quebecaudio.com/occasions/index.php/annonces/rockport-technologies-rockport-technologies-avior/

I am not saying that any of these are not legit but I have a number of questions:

Why would Americans advertise expensive equipment on a site in Quebec and in French?

Why so many mismatches between City and province or country?

Why always expensive equipment?

Why always advertisers with no feedback?

All these have been bugging me for a while.

OTH bought great speakers from a local guy about an hour and a half from my home and all was A-OK so I had one good transaction on that site and some proper exchanges that did not lead to a deal.

I am sure that most sellers are OK but those ads make me wonder.

Some of the ads are from B.C. so my level of doubt is lessened.

But why would Americans advertise on a site from Quebec in a language foreign to them? One could say that with very expensive expensive equipment a vendor wants to cast the widest net possible which is now so simple with the Internet.

I don't buy that explanation. Maybe just a hunch.

Caveat emptor.

Apparently (for obvious reasons) all of Son Ideal ad's are listed on CAM. The TED site is obviously outdated and fraught with danger signals.
