Members from Germany,
what kind of distributions of the AD-7240S have you seen in german stores/received from german online retailers?
Afaik in general there is
the "Sony Optiarc AD-7240S" in a plastic bag,
the "SONY AD-7240S" in a simple brown box and
the "SONY DRU-870S" in a high quality designed box.
Actually, does the SONY DRU-870S box wear a factory seal at the opener or is it just simply an open box? If not, is the simple brown box available in Germany? Has that one a factory seal on the box?
