Walt, J&R is an authorized dealer and is legit. I've ordered from them many times and have received good merchandise and service. Last year, my brother, who was rather new to the audio hobby at the time, bought a pair of S38s at Best Buy for $500. He was floored when I told him that J&R had them for $300 a couple of weeks after he bought them at Best Buy. In the end, he returned the S38s to Best Buy and bought something completely different from another store. However, he now knows to look at J&R for low prices.
I bought a pair of S38s ($279) and a PB10 ($199) from J&R and the stuff was shipped same day and the shipping was included on all JBL products. I don't know if the shipping thing was a promo or if it a regular deal... The UPS guy said, "Well, that saved you some bucks..."
Thanks! I just ordered a pair of S38's from J&R. Now for the hard part....waiting. Now I know/remember how a kid feels waiting for Santa Claus.
I wish there was a way for the doorbell to ring 5 minutes after you click the submit button. LOL
