    I have 2 questions regarding these products.

    First, I have a $2,500 absolute limit. Does anyone know where i can get the AVM-20 (including some sort of cross border canadian purchase since i am close to Windsor) for $2,500. Also, I have heard some talk that current owners may be able to get the upgrade for $100 for a limited time...has this been confirmed or not?

    Secondly, I already believe i would prefer the Anthem over the Outlaw just based upon usability issues and I think it is more future proof for my system, but for the price of the AVM-20 i could get the Outlaw 950 AND a BP-2 balanced power conditioner from BPT. I currently am not even using a monster line conditioner just an off the shelf surge protector. Any opinions regarding which of these options would be better for me and why would be greatly appreciated.

    The rest of my system consists of a B&K 7270 amp, Onkyo cd changer, Toshiba SD 6200? dvd player, Toshiba 40H80 TV, dish satellite, PS2, onkyo cassette. I am currently using an Onkyo TX-SV828 THX as a pre/pro. Thanks for any help.

    The best I was able to do on the AVM-20 was $2600. That was picking it up in Canada. The best price in the US was 2719 on a demo, but I would of had to pay over $200 in sales tax on the US purchase. I have seen people who have purchased them for less in Canada, but I don't know from where.

    I only have an answer regarding the upgrade. It is highly unlikely that the upgrade is going to be $100 (I wish, it would be a no-brainer). According to Nick from SF (I emailed him last week), the targeted price of the upgrade has not been fixed, but is targeted at $300-400. I still have a copy of his email if anyone wants to see it for themselves.

    BTW, re: pricing, I can't even get our local dealers to budge off of MSRP much less $2500. They'd laugh me out of the store!
