I, like so many here, am in the process of auditioning HT speaker systems. Surprisingly I'm not asking for opinions on various brands or for advice on what's the best. I've already decided on a Polk LSi setup anchored by LSi 15's up front. My question has to do with where to buy them. I've auditioned at my local Audio Store (SoundScape in Baltimore) and I was very pleased not only with the speakers but with the people there and I don't mind paying some premium for having access to a knowledgeable person to work through the process and provide help if needed after sale. Here's the delima. With these Polks we are not just talking a premium to buy from them we are talking awhole lot of money. At the store the set up will be roughly $2800.00 (2 LSi 15's, The LSi Center and a pair of the LSi Di/BiPole surrounds.) At a internet site like Acoustic Sound Design I can do the whole thing for roughly 1900.00 plus shipping. Now I don't know what the shipping is (they say thay don't make a profit on shipping but they don't publish rates) but it would have to be a whole lot to level the playing field. For the difference in price I can afford the Denon 3802 I was looking out but bounced out of the equation because the budget wouldn't take the Polk's and the Denon. I've done a lot of internet buying so I'm not hesitant from that standpoint but at the same time you read all the dire warnings from the manufactureres about not honoring warranties from "non-authorized" dealers. As I said I'd like to buy from my dealer but it's hard to explain the difference to my bank and my wife...if you know what I mean. Any thoughts?
