This is really not true in most cases.

It really just depends on what folks are used to paying and the particular gear in question.

Sometimes, the accepted going used price is just so close to MAP (not that I would ever pay that nonsense, but most folks do) and simply shopping around dealers is going to beat that.

One example that comes to mind is the Shure SM7b. With minor effort one can get this for $290 brand new and yet used they sell for this price or more all the time. If you see a used Pacifica for more than $1750, you've got another example right there.
