I was just about to order Klipsch Reference Series R*3-IIs all around, when I found out that there are NO online authorized dealers for new Klipsch merchandise. This puts a large wrench in my plans, as I was under the impression I would be able to grab the speakers online with warranty (and there are no authorized dealers near me with the speakers im looking for). I was going to spend a total of about 1,800 dollars shipped for two mains, the center, and four surrounds (buying an SVS PC+ 16-46 for the sub), at this price the warranty would be backed through the store, but not directly through Klipsch (www.Sounddistributors.com). Are there any other brands I can consider that will will meet or beat the Klipsches in terms of performance AND that I can purchase online with a full warranty for about the same price (preferably no more than $1,900 with $1,999 shipped being the absolute maximum, can't break the magic 2K mark). On the other hand, would I be alright purchasing the Klipsch speakers online through this dealer? Another dealer with slighty lower prices is www.reliableaudiovideo.com , are they reputable? I was basically all set and decided on the Reference Series, so those are my current first choice for the price. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
