Well, after perusing many threads about buying Paradigm and PSB in Canada I made the 2 hour trip up to Montreal to investigate. Here is what I learned quickly upon arrival. First, most of the shops are too small to carry any decent inventory, so don't expect ANY shops to have the Studio Wood Veneers in stock. Not too much of a problem b/c I only have a 2 hour trip. Second, maybe my haggling skills are not up to par, but I could not get many of them to budge more than 10 or 15% off list prices. Stereo Plus was the only place willing to bargain, but I don't know if I should pull the trigger on the deal I was offered or keep trying. Here is the lowdown: Studio 40s - Rosewood Veneer --> List $1600 Studio CC - List $600 The final deal I was offered was for $1700(in Canadian $ and before taxes). Total price to me = about $1400 US --> $1956 CA after taxes with about $100 of duty refunded upon returning to the states. He also said he would give me Atlantis Stands(which he recommended) at cost. All in all, not a bad deal, but should I be make another attempt? St. Hubert Radio would not budge much, and I did not have time to go to Codell Audio. Also, is there a better place for PSBs other than Audiotronic or the Sony Store? Neither of which kept stock of the Stratus Bronze or the Stratus CC, and did not seem too eager to make the sale. I am a little discouraged, and may opt for the Rockets 550 and RSC100 for a slightly lower cost. Anyone have any suggestions?
