    I would like to believe that the seller means Onkyo but since there isn't a specific component list, I am quite sure the stuff is Onkio.

    But then again, it does have a Bose Acoustamass sound system so it might be ok.

    Noticed the reserve has not been met yet. By the way something about Bose just scares me.[​IMG]

    I wonder if these guys got the plans to those stupid demo rooms, like the Bose ones at Fry's, and made it into a portable trailer like form to sell to the easily swindled masses.

    I was wondering if Premium Onkio is different from regular Onkyo.
    Maybe I should write or call Onkyo and ask them what models are being used in the "portable theaters".

    Onkio is another company not related to Onkyo. Their products are manufactured in Timbucktoo and can be had in the open street market for about 2 cents per watt. So a 200Wx5 Onkio amp can be purchased on the street for about $20. The price usually is fixed and no haggling is allowed, although I have seen it dropped on after thanksgiving sale to as low as 75% off MSRP. So if you can wait until Thanksgiving you might be able to pick up one of these babies for $5.[​IMG]

    In all seriousness this ad just seems like a cheesy scam. So buyer beware.

    I think it's by the same group that tried to sell that Soviet sub on there a couple of years ago. Now their getting into a legitimate business.

    Also ask them if they are an authorized Onkio dealer. I would be very scared to buy from an unauthorized e-tailer.

    Yeah, and since those futons fold out into beds ask them if they come with sheets and pillow cases. (wife wants to know)
