I just went through the exercise of trying to find on-line Klipsch dealers (legitimate dealers that can give a warranty), and came up with nothing. One of the sites that have nice pics of speakers said that there is no authorized on-line dealers.
Some of the sites that had Klipsch listed have either vanished, or the klipsch section is now blocked.
I did find a local dealer that will sell at a discount and give a dealer warranty. I'm satisfied with the price, especially when you factor in shipping costs.
I purchased my klipsch RF35's, RC-35, RCR-5's from brandnamez.com. It was quite scary. I couldn't contact them by phone after the order. After many e-mails back and forth I received my speakers. Even though it was scary everything arrived in good shape. It was a chance to take , but I did pay much less even after shipping. I don't know if I'd do it again. Your choice.
After checking out brandnzmez.com their prices are only marginally cheaper than getting a decent local deal (assuming that you will pay the maximum shipping UPS ground)
I paid $800 for two RF-35's brandnamez: $660+ 40 I paid $420 for two RS-35'S brandnamez: $398+ 20 I paid $320 for one RC-35 brandnamez: $265+ 28
For a total savings of $130 (which is an 8.5% savings, a greater savings if you pay less for shipping) and no factory warranty (or maybe a factory warranty)depending on how brandnamez.com is recognized by Klipsch.
I bought the speakers and took them home the same day, the dealer threw in things like connectors, speaker wire, even a couple of cd's.
I went through the same thing, scouring the world for a good deal on-line, but am totally satisfied with my deal and am actually thankful that I did not have to buy them via the internet.
Although, I did buy the SVS sub via the internet, but that was my only option.
On a more positive note, I'm extremely happy with my new speakers, and have no buyers remorse.
