I have no idea how iBood manages to get such low prices on a lot of products. Some of them are used (as are the speakers I've bought from them) but some are new/open box.

Still cheaper than almost any other outlet whenever they DO have audio stuff on sale (happens once every few months, I reckon)
you know the price is for fucking buyer

arial 906 is every 2 month 50 % cheaper

i see homecinema new product sell 475 e during 3 month after they put the price to 790 e to come back to 475 know saying initial price 790e

i buy shure iaonic 50 150 euro ...

LG C3 1990 e when go out , 1590 regulary 1190 / 1090 during black friday 1390 / 1490 after and come back 1190 now and this price is in shop AND LG shop up and down

in europe is forbiden to sell produc losing money : i affirm C3 TV 55 inch there is 500 / 600 fluctuate price ( margin price ) 50 % of the bottom price ( more over the screen oled is from 80 to 200 e max when go out fabric )

This is wrong. I cannot tell about other countries, but French law allows this during both Winter and Summer Sales (The Soldes d'Hiver will end on February 6).

It is indeed wrong, it's not a European law it's a French one since 1963 and a Belgian one since 2010. There it is forbidden to sell below purchase price, except during solden or exceptional circumstances.

Something I did not know until I researched it now:
In 2013 the Court of Justice of the European Union judged that the original Belgian law (article 101 of the WMPC) was in conflict with European law. Therefore it could no longer be enforced. Any fine could be easily fought. It has since been replaced by chapter 4 of the WER (Wetboek economisch recht).

If you want to be stupid, at least in this case, the government isn’t stopping you
More seriously : It's not about being stupid. This French law is supposed to be protective against unfair competition ("concurrence déloyale"). ;)

If someone is really already losing money giving 50% reduction on a made up listing price is not hard to anwer.
He is not.
That starts about 80%, but we do not see that often do we, for two reasons:
1. It makes listing-prices look ridiculous
2. No one wants to loose money
I am talking about industrie hifi-products, it differs for costum made products.

This is just eyewash, there are tons of ways to get around it. Just take a look at the online troves from electronics discounters. You only need to declare the product as spoiled, damaged, packaging damage, customer return, exhibition item, etc. This is common practice, not just in the audio sector.
I have often bought such products and received goods that were originally packaged and still sealed by the manufacturer. And I'm talking about branded devices and speakers, which are the subject of threads here in the forum. At prices that are 50-80% below the lowest retail price, these products will certainly be sold below EK.
Sometimes storage areas are cleared pallet by pallet.

But do we want to complain about it?

It depends on the couriers. Most of them suck anyway
