    But why should they?

    Why canít you or anyone who wants to try, buy one and just return it if you donít like it and get your money back.

    As I have said on many a thread, what someone chooses to spend their hard earned money on is up to them.

    Just because someone doesn’t ‘believe’ it’ll make a difference, doesn’t mean it won’t for others.

    If I chose to try one of these grounding boxes, I will comment on how good or bad it is and not before.

    You would need to buy it mail order so that you are covered by the distance selling regs which give you 14 days to return it for any reason. If you go to a shop and buy it you have no right of return.

    Itís down to whether the shop has a return policy or not. Some shops will accept returns ...

    I hear of many people 'trying' out expensive kit (not necessarily audio kit) and returning it under the distance selling regs. This does not seem fair on dealers/sellers who then have a used piece of equipment which they can only sell at a steep discount. A used demo unit seems far more fair. No dealer/seller is obliged of course to offer such used demo units.

    I wouldnít buy off any dealer who didnít offer sale or return, and surely you have 28 days to return anything under UK law?

    Face to face selling has different regulations as the customer gets to see/look/feel listen to what ever they are buying before parting with any funds same as its ever been however most dealers / shop owners are usually human and will come to an happy medium for customers except for special order items

    Distance selling is very different customer can change their minds for any reason virtually and return for a full refund less postage, however their are caveats depends on the sellers terms and conditions

    So if you return the equipment it was sent out in turn you have nothing to worry about, taking the piss like most eBay specialists can leave you a specified percentage less than your purchase price all perfectly legally read the T&C's

    Remember you are responsible for the return of the equipment until it is physically delivered same as the dealer is when it's shipped to you





    Play the game and pretty much 99% of dealers will be the same no problem
