Tried - they don't care, it is second hand and they have said what has been done to it, so it is buyer beware.

Just received this reply from emporium hi fi in response to my suggestion they should not sell them as they no longer meet class 2 and are dangerous. I will ask them to prove their statement given they said "No" earlier.

They are wrong, one layer of insulation has been removed at one spot internally. That is enough to be denied CE on class II regs. Dangerous, well highly unlikely, just ignorant people interfering in things they don't understand. Perhaps you should link him to this thread.

I recon if put back to correct standard and the case sorted (as long as they haven't superglued it) I could get £300 for them, but it is a full rebuild - new PCBs, so I would only give £100 to get it off his hands.
