Hi

I just bought a new Yamaha u1, to make sure it's brand new, I heard that there is web site, you enter the serial number, and it will tell you the year it being made, does anyone know the web site? Also, how can I tell it's not a refurbish one?

Thanks!

SF

The Yamaha site only goes up to 2004. I don't know of another site, maybe somebody has made one. If your serial is about 622xxxx and up you're not much more than a year from manufacture. The latest ones I've seen are like 626xxxx. As for refurbished- Did you buy it from a Yamaha Dealer?
