    what's going on with Onkyo's website?
    is the back surround speaker discontinued?
    model SKB-100.

    i have 15 pts. in my Onkyo profile that i'd like
    to use. but the back surround speaker is not listed under the speakers that you can order.

    does anyone know what's going on?
    not too long ago, a few of you ordered this 6th speaker.
    did i miss out?

    Ok, i'm sorry... i feel foolish for posting that question without calling Onkyo first.

    In case anyone is interested... that back surround speaker is currently out of stock.

    They expect additional shipments in mid march.
    So i guess i'll check the website then.

    They're worth waiting for - it's a nice little speaker for a decent price.

    Yes, especially when I can get it cheaper than $40 with my current 15pts. with Onkyo.

    Now I have to go build another speaker stand.

    When they do get back in stock, does anybody know what kind of shipping charge would be involved? Do they add tax to NY? I'd like to know how much the total price would be before I make a decision as to whether I'm going with a 6.1 HTIB with a dvd player I don't need, or go with a separate 6.1 reciever add the sks-ht500 and this back speaker, or go for a 5.1 system. I'm trying to see if I can build a nice 6.1 system without a rediculous jump in price from a 5.1. So far the diff is about $300 and I'm trying to figure out if it is worth it to me. Thanks

    I ordered my SKS-HT500's from Onkyo's webiste (with 10 points for registering) and being I was a "member" I got the speakers for $255 versus $299. With my 10 points the total price was $245. Shipping came to $0 plus $0 for taxes! Free shipping for an 81 lb, brand new package, sent right to my door. [​IMG]

    Basically, I wouldn't worry too much about the shipping cost. I would assume shipping on the rear speaker will be free as well.

    By the way, I was also confused upon discovering that the rear speaker was no longer available. An "out of stock" notice at the web site would have been nice. Although, for the deals Onkyo's throwing out, I'm not complaining! Thanks for calling and setting things straight.
