    As everyone knows these electronics are serialized. Every successful Manufacturer I know of has territory restrictions that they enforce.

I would imagine the serial numbers are either removed, modified or replaced to avoid the source in Japan, or elsewhere, being exposed. Even if Accuphase doesnt care Im sure if Axiss or Audio Alliance contacted them with this complaint and serial numbers they would act.
    The existence of Audio Cubes is clearly a by-product of the business practice of US Accuphase distributor and the alike. Maybe we should have a strong opinion about that.

    perhaps you should leave your imagination to yourself if you have no direct knowledge of anything you are saying.

    Both items I bought were brand new, had serial numbers and did not look tampered with at all

    Re: Accuphase E-800

    Glad to hear you are happy. One way to confirm is for you to reach out to Accupahse Japan with the Serial number and confirm who the original Dealer is. If its been tampered with you will know then.

    There is also no way for me to have direct knowledge as I would never spend any money on a 100V device.

    Re: Accuphase E-800

    Has anyone compared the E650 to the E800, and would care to comment on specific differences in the two? Currently own the 650 and considering selling it for an 800, but listening to one is almost impossible. Would appreciate any feedback.
    Thanks

    My E-800 arrived several days ago. With about 150 hours on the clock, I continue to be amazed with its performance.

    It’s a chunky integrated, but I like the looks.
