I have never heard a tech use for the terms A-Stock and B-stock. Typically "B-stock" represents items that are factory recertified or open box items that cannot be sold as new. While the opposite is true for "A-stock" items or products. To me he is simply saying your PPI amp is a recertified product while he carries brand new, from the factory Boston A amps. What exactly are you trying to do? Which PPI amp, or amps do you have?

yeah basically he's saying ur amps are refurbished and that normally refurbs will screw up later since they have already been screwed up. therefore he will tell u that he will sell you a brand new amp and will probably carry a warranty, so if your amps do tend to mess up, you'll be covered under warranty.

yup, datboiroy got it. b stock basically is refurbished products. however i'll disagree that since it's refurbished that it means it'll mess up again. when a company gets an amp thats broken, the company will get the product through extensive QA and have the problem fixed. A broken product should go through more QA than a new product. So when finally QA is done, the product should be in good working order. My experience with refurbished products has been great. I haven't had one problem with the number of refurbished products i've bought. Refurbished products are cheaper to boot as well.
