GAH!!! I just found out that fry's electronics were selling the $700 LSI-7 for mere peanuts... $200 each pair.

this isnt the sad part, the sad part is that i live in illinois and i just found out that we HAVE a fry's electronics store here!! i thought it was all in the west coast! god!! i am so stupid!

they even had them marked down to $100 a pair last week!!

geez!!

and to think i was tweeter last week ogling at the 700$ price tag.

You don't really want to know what they had them marked down to do you? ....it was even less than $99
(They are $599/pr market, $808/pr MSRP) I went down and got the difference refunded for the three pairs I bought, which was more than the price of one pair of speakers. Almost the best deal I have ever gotten in my life.

I bought some at the $199 price less than a month ago... are you saying that I can go back to Fry's with my receipt and get some MORE money back!?!

I have no idea why, but I am not complaining. Basically, they WERE gone in about 2 weeks, I haven't seen any more in local stores - I was told by a friend that works there that it was a one time deal between Polk and Fry's.

Used to be a local chain, of just a few stores here in our area, but it seems to be spreading like the flu across the country... :p)

Actually, there are NO Fry's stores in Canada at all. They started in California and are on the west coast along with that massive state Texas and now Chicago.

I was just in Fry's today, and they no longer had the refurbs, but had new ones at the originall $700 price. I am not sure about the rest of the country, but the deal is gone in Northern California.

Fry's also has the R20 bookshelves (retail $278 per pair) on sale for $49(!) a pair and the CSi20 for $49 each. These are new, not refurbs. Not the best speakers around but what a deal. Yep, Fry's is the Walmart of electronics. Polk must give them a helluva deal.

Was told today that they won't refund difference unless they are currently on sale. Oh well, I'll have to be satisfied with 2 pair @ $199 / pr...
