On yahoo it means no returns and no refunds.  Although they do say in the description that it powers up but they have not checked that it actually gets sound to come out of speakers so that is that to be considered too. 

 

However, that is why it is so cheap.

The description says that its condition is JUNK. Not sure if it means that it is not working or working. :)

Neither, really.

The original non-translated Japanese from the Yahoo auctions says this:

 

ジャンク品

 

This is 'Junk' product.

In Japan, secondhand goods are often either classed 'As New', or 'Junk'. So they either look like they could be sold again as brand new items, or they are something else (missing a part, or a manual, or a box, or they have some damage somewhere, on a case by case basis).

 

You are advised then that the Seller considers this quality below the usual item they sell, and it does not meet their usual standards for selling in that it does not present as near-perfect. Which for many Western buyers, is absolutely fine.  :) 

 

As Cafad notes, they have checked initially that it has power, and that's about all they were prepared to do. So it's sold on 'As is' and all responsibility passes to the Buyer for it's eventual condition. It could be great, or it could be someone else's problem.

Postage would be the killer wouldn't it?

It should come in under 25kg with packaging so postage will be a few hundred but it won't be anywhere near as crippling as a 907.

Proxy sites are well known to “repackage” an item to make sure it’s over the weight. Then you have the lovely option of paying the extra shipping or relinquishing the item. Fun hey.

Has anyone gone to Japan to pick up an amp like a 907? It seems that postage is around $800-$1000 so are there impediments to flying there with just carry on luggage and toting it back. Whacky audiophiles eh?

Will they let you pick it up locally for free? Im sure there must be a thread somewhere...

You may be able to organise to get it delivered to your hotel. 

 

Anyone know what the rates are for extra baggage on major airlines from Japan to Australia?
