Re: I just got the new Mark Levinson 512
We have the same problem here, with dealers not carrying “competitors.” However, in the past, dealers had components on display and allowed you to take them home for an overnight (provided they can charge these on your credit card.) Unfortunately, I had no local ML dealer. The nearest Krell dealer was so far that it made taking it home impractical, which he would not allow to do anyway.
My conclusions about Krell and ML are very similar to yours
