NO AFFILIATION

For those that are interested or curious - https://niagaraauction.thriftythursdays.ca/index.cfm

Seem to be mostly returns/B stocks/etc but has the potential for a deal for some...

street price used is usually a bit lower. changes like the position of the sun, though, on all the AV stuff. Marches as fast as a clock, it feels, most times.....

If the auction went to a charity, perhaps I'd see value there, but - as Ken put it, many of these items on the used market are priced less. Being open box demo units, aside from a warranty, i'd be just as interested in a used piece on the private market. $2250 starting price (for example) on the Anthem is no big deal...

Be careful buying from them. I bought a B stock Marantz cd player a few years ago and the thing wouldn't read cds.
I waited too long to use it and I couldn't return it.

They do donate to charity in the April auction, and that one most often has a larger selection of items too. I've upgraded my AVR the last couple times through the April auction and managed to get great deals on TVs for friends/family.

I was looking for a decent 11.2 AVR this go around with HDCP 2.2 but nothing there, will check again in April. They do have good b-stock pricing on Denon AVRs when the new year model comes in.

Gibby's have definitely elevated their service over the past few years since they merged with Electronic Supermarket, it's a much better and reliably company now in my experience dealing with both since 2004.

(no affiliation either)
