Grading the Condition of your Item

Hi everyone,

We have updated the site with a new Grading Scale guide which adopts the exact same strict Grading guidelines that AudioGon has made into a standard. AudioMart Grading was always meant to follow the AudioGon Grading Scale, however, without proper references there have been instances where some Conditions, like New, Mint, and Excellent were used too frequently and improperly.

When you are posting a new classified, please read carefully the Grading Scale and pick the one that properly describes the Condition of your item, exactly as if you were doing it on other hifi sites that use the AGS.

In particular, please be aware of the following:

"New Items"

New items must be completely UNOPENED. Items that have been opened for even inspection and photos cannot be rated "New".

"Mint Items"

Mint items must have been in use for less than a year. They must have no visible scratches or blemishes ANYWHERE on the piece, including the bottom surface where the item touches the floor or rack. Items must have no discoloration or scratches on connectors.

"Excellent Items"

Typically, only store demo or one-owner items can qualify for this rating.

For detailed descriptions, please see the new Grading Scale guide, which is an exact duplicate of the guide listed at AudioGon.

Thanks for reading this and please be careful when Grading your items. We hope that over time as everyone is using the Condition field correctly the overall effect is an improved experience for both buyers and sellers.

Thanks again for using CAM!
