    This thread inspired a question:
    http://www.hometheaterforum.com/htfo...threadid=47721
    I tend to be in the camp that hasn't gotten the kind of bend-over-backwards service from B&M stores. I typically see the monopolistic guys that cater to large wallets, and often times not very knowledgable sales staff. I see several people on this board in the Atlanta area, and I just wanted to get a list going of good dealers.
    If I had really good service, including in-home demos, I would be MUCH more inclined to buy from B&M.
    I'll start, with my experiences.
    Even though I haven't really made a major purchase there (I bought LD's there all the time back when it was LaserDisc Enterprises), Georgia Home Theater has always been helpful and good to me when I browse and ask questions. They just tend to carry products that are out of my price range at the moment.
    I purchased my Energy speakers from Entertainment Technology in Loganville, GA. They're the closest place I could find that carry them, and I wanted to hear them first. The sales guy was pretty nice and helpful, but they wouldn't do in-home auditions.
    The Big Screen Store in Buckhead is basically a Mitsubishi outlet, and nobody was jumping out to greet me there. I have heard some pretty laughable stories about the salesmen's "facts" from some friends though.
    I know there are a few more HT shops in the area, I just haven't been to all of them. What are some good ones?

    yes, Tweeter = Hi Fi Buys in Atlanta.

    By the way, they're having a clearance sale of demo equipment this weekend in all the stores. Some really good stuff out there.

    Hey Jeff,

    Check out Evolution Home Theater in Duluth. They carry paradigm, definitive, denon, marantz, pioneer, and more. Their shop/showroom is quite nice.

    Jeff,

    Sound and Cinema in Alpharetta has been very helpful to me. Ask for Dave. Long time in the business and is very patient with a newbie like me.

    Yep, I'll second Mark's suggestion as well. I just picked up a receiver and a pair of surrounds off Dave at Sound and Cinema. Helpful guy, good deal!
