Yamaha Factory Refurbished

Buying a Yamaha Factory Refurbished product is a great way to get "as-new" products at a considerable savings. Every product has been thoroughly tested, repaired (if necessary), cleaned and otherwise renewed to original condition. Next it's repackaged with original accessories included. When you consider that a factory-renewed Yamaha product undergoes such close scrutiny for defects and workmanship, you might actually be buying something that is in many ways better than new. And for your piece of mind and protection, your purchase is covered by a full 1 year parts and labor warranty valid at any authorized Yamaha repair center (you can look-up locations online here or call 714-522-9888)

Yamaha, like all electronics manufactures, receives products returned for various reasons. In 2011 consumers returned 17 billion dollars in electronics globally, of which less than 5% were found to be defective! Once a product has been opened, it must be resold as refurbished or open box and can't be resold as new again. The history and reason why a product was returned is not provided to us, thus we can't provide any additional details regarding its past. All products are processed by Yamaha certified technicians, where they are fully tested, repaired (only if necessary), and retested again to ensure the highest quality control. Each unit must pass a complete battery of test before it can be titled a "Yamaha Factory Refurbished" product.

Most units are Cosmetically in Mint Condition (graded a 9 or higher on a scale of 1-10). Very minor signs of wear (light surface scuffs or minor scratches) may be present, although most units show little or no signs of any usage. We DO NOT sell products that are cosmetically damaged (cracked displays, broken knobs, heavy scratches, or physically abused) unless noted in the description. Unfortunately, we can't provide actual photos of each unit or pick the best one for anyone, as they are all randomly chosen from our factory sealed boxes.

Reviewer: from Indianapolis, Indiana
Nice solid 3-way cabinets & great sound. Able to hear highs & has a very deep lower tone when needed. They have spring clip speaker terminals not banana jacks, but the spring clips are heavy duty. Very pleased with fast Fedex ground shipping, only 3 days! Would recommend these to family. Thank you very much.

Best $89 I've ever spent on audio

5 YAMAHA NS-6490 PAIR 8" 3-Way Bookshelf Speakers Black
Reviewer: from USA
I had a previous pair of Yamaha 8" that I bought back in college in 1998. They were outstanding. Bought the latest version and these are even better! A reference quality speaker that flies under the radar in the audio world. The clarity and warmth these speakers provide are amazing at their price level. These could easily be priced at $400 bucks a pair. On par with speakers costing 5x as much. It's rare to find a 3 way non-ported speaker with a true midrange anymore. The highs and mids are warm and clear, and the lows are solid and tight. I have an Outlaw RR2150 running them with an 8" Yamaha sub on the floor for added depth, and this setup doesn't disappoint. I could sit back in my leather chair and listen for HOURS. Hard rock, alternative, classical, dance, you name it, they can handle it. Skip the KEF's and the Klipsch's, get an absolute steal with these beauties!
