    I'm interested in the Acoustic Research HC6 system. Are there any good online vendors for AR? Thanks.

    You might want to take a look at www.accessories4less.com
    They deal a lot in Acoustic Research speakers. I just checked and their price is $529.99 for the system.
    They're authorized AR internet dealers and I didn't have any problems at all ordering 4 AR-208V's, and an AR-S112PS a little while ago, all shipped to Canada too!
    They sell quite a bit of E-Stock equipment too if you're interested.

    Thank you so much, Gabriel! And I am happy that the firm is an authorized dealer. Super.

    I was also thinking about purchasing some AR speakers. I found the best price for the setup I want at Etronics. Are they also factory-authorized?

    Jack: No problem, lots of places to choose from [​IMG]
    Might any of you know where to get a single AR-S50 speaker? I have one working, and need another for a pair...

    They used to in pairs, they don't have anymore though. And I was hoping for a single speaker only, not both...

    Thanks for all the help, guys. If you were plunking down your own cash, which site would you consider? Thanks!

    http://electronicsemall.com - $400 for HC6, the best price around.
    but I don't care about fast delivery and perfect customer service.

    Well, is that a reputable dealer? The site looks kind of dinky, but that price is compelling. Whereas BestPrice has a professional-looking site, but the HC6 is going for $529 there.

    Anybody know anything about ElectronicsEmall. According the their "About Us" info, they've been around for decades. Did they always call themselves "eMall," I wonder?

    I'd spring for HC6 at that price right this very moment--if I could be sure my money won't simply disappear.

    Hey Jack,
    Well at that price, accessories4less has it as well if you really want to buy it now [​IMG]
    Umm...I would consider them since I've bought from them before, actually I called them for my purchase and they seemed pretty helpful, even threw in a free subwoofer cable for me!

    Here some info about eMail:

    Looks like they do everything quite fair, but if something goes wrong - you in trouble.
    As usual - the bigger risk, the bigger gain. If you play and win you gain $130, if you loose.. it depends.

    Do you say that, Jedd, because of the relatively low score EMall received for shipping and handling?

    If these guys or accessories4less are reputable, I'm ready plunk down some change for these nifty little speakers (The Perfect Visioni raved over the HC6). I'm really just about a mouse click away from wanting to buy the HC6.

    If you don't like gambling - go order from AC4L, they are reputable and I heard only good things about them.

    HC6 is well worth these 5 hundreds and even more.

    (I was about to buy it myself, but decided to go farther)

    Good luck.

    Yup, I doubt you'll have any problems with them, good luck with your purchase if you decide to go through with it!

    Just a little info about AC4L, I won an Ebay Auction for a
    AR C225PS Center and when they shipped it they did not double
    box it. UPS beat the living hell out of the box, every side
    was caved in. I opened the box expecting to see pieces of
    a Center Channel. I couldn't beleive it was unscathed not
    even a single blemish.

    AC4L would have sent me another if it was messed up. I just
    wish these guys would double box smaller items when they can.
