It's no wonder that many dealers cannot afford to have the high end equipment for display and demonstration.
My preferred Kansas City store is undergoing ownership change due to bankruptcy and I have little faith the business will be there to provide for my future passion for great audio.
I have to claim guilty here. I am sorry, but I have to do what is best for me. I appreciate a dealer's time, and if they make me a good enough deal, I will buy from them. I just finished my theater and my Paradigm's came from a dealer, but the Denon receiver is a B stock Internet deal, as well as the harmony remote.
ChiefTK, what store are you referring to? I am up near Liberty, MO. I have hit the B&W in Parkville and Independence Audio is where I got the speakers. Who do you frequent in KC?
