yes, brand new from axiom (specifically, brent)
here's the detailed story:
I had my Aunt in Canada order the unit for me, so SHE can facilitate shipping to me (but this is wholly my money, this is NOT a gift, nor am I the 2nd owner)
I ordered the unit mid january, 2006 and arrived in its destination in canada within 1-2 days.. it was delivered to its philippine destination march 6, 2006 (one day after I was confined in the hospital - but that is another story) ... after 6 days in the hospital and 2 more days waiting for the tools required to cut the metal belts used to support the box (btw, box was in perfect condition) I looked over the back of the unit ... saw the label 120v / 230v, plugged it in, saw the led light up then off. I figured, oh crap, took a flashlight and just then saw the fusebox with the teeny tiny instructions on it. (granted it was stupid of me to have missed that in the manual) but c'mon, I was excited to listen to it (also the reason I was only in the hospital for 6 days, I forced the doctors to clear me for discharge).
