Sonos Connect Amp - should I buy used?
English

Hi

just after some advice really

got the opportunity to buy a 3 year old connect amp and new bridge for £300

 

does this sound a good deal? I already have some q acoustics 2020i to use

the amp I'm told is in very good condition

RE: Sonos Connect Amp - should I buy used?

I guess the usual caveats apply the same as purchasing any second-hand electronic equipment. That said there's very few reports of issues with the Connect:Amp, I can't think of anything being reported on the Sonos forum.

On the other hand, I don't know what second-hand values are like for the Connect:Amp but the seller probably got the Bridge for free, and for another £100 you could get a brand new Connect:Amp and could probably find a retailer willing to chuck in a Bridge for nothing, even though that promotion finished at the end of last year.

Thanks for the reply mate

think I'll opt for a new amp as at least then I have a warranty...worth it for peace of mind

used amps on eBay tend to go for around £330 mark

I've been told that resellers are told to throw in a bridge for free if it's the difference between making a sale or not.  Not sure who funds that but I'd not be surprised if it was Sonos.

I don't know what the margin in on Sonos products but the Bridge is £39 so can't be costing them more than £30, you'd hope on a £400 product they'd be willing to move that much really.

Occasionally, retailers like Amazon offer a 10% discount on Sonos products.
