that is incorrect. i have worked in A/V retail and any item that is returned (even if in a sealed box) is opened and inspected. the item inside is checked against the serial number on the box to confirm the return along with any accessories. so ANYTHING that they receive in return is not sold as new. It could be sold as "OPEN BOX" but it is illegal to sell it as new.

The units that are being sold on woot are brand new, sealed, never used, never sold items.
Is this despite the statement on the listing that says 3 year limited Pioneer warranty?
This is BRAND NEW not refurbished. It is new and comes with 3 year Pioneer warranty (Linked directly on the woot page for this item).

Refurbs only have 1 year warranty (See link above).

Woot (according to reddit) sells tampered/returned/damaged items that they are unable to move on amazon.

On top of that returns are only accepted if the item is defective, or the buyer must pay return shipping which i imagine for this it's a lot. And if they already sell returned/damaged junk as new and working then how can you trust that they won't throw you under the bus and determine your damaged/defective item is working fine and deduct the return shipping cost from your refunded $?

And imo with home audio you need the option for free returns for any reason in case the audio product doesn't stand up to your listening preferences or doesn't respond well to the acoustics of your listening space.

Even though Woot is owned by Amazon, don't count on this getting any manufacturer warranty.

Edit: I stand corrected. The Woot product page states that there is warranty despite Woot not directly started as a authorized dealer on Pioneers own website. Read the woot warranty page below. There's a 99.9% chance this should be covered, however you all have heard of nightmare stories of Woot and warranties not being honored on new products.

I emailed Woot support to see if they can give us a definite answer

Woot is not a authorized seller at least not at first glance.

It is for Onkyo https://www.onkyousa.com/authoriz...resellers/

But not for Pioneer.

https://www.pioneerhomeusa.com/au...retailers/.

This could be due to them not updating the list but unless you have direct confirmation from Pioneer support themselves, my point stands. That does beg the question where Woot is getting these units from. Is it directly from Pioneer themselves? If true then you would be correct.

Woot is OWNED and OPERATED by Amazon (Which is on the Pioneer warranty page as an authorized online reseller). As noted on the sale page this comes with a 3 year warranty from Pioneer.

I stand corrected then, thanks.

Anecdotally I've seen some horror stories with warranty even though it's owned and operated by Amazon. Wouldn't hurt to ask Woot support to be sure. After all this is a nearly a 1k investment.

Ok. Items anywhere at any store that are bought and returned new can be resold as new. If you buy a pair of shoes online and they don't fit do you expect the store to sell them as used. -that's not what happens.
