    I am looking to buy a pair of Athena AS-F2 floor speakers to finish off my home theatre sound setup. Unfortunatly the only place that seems to carry them that i know of is Future Shop and they are kinda pricey right now (800$ canadian)
    Anyone know of any canadian retailers that carry these?
    I am in the Montreal area.
    thanks alot

    Bestbuy here in the Midwest of the USA had them on sale for I think, $300/pair. I'm sure you can find pretty competitive prices on ebay.

    Future Shop will usually bend on the price if you push them. Also, you might want to consider the F1's instead. I tried both the F1's and F2's and there was very little difference in them, especially for movies. The F2's have a little more bass but if you have a decent subwoofer you won't tell the difference. I ended up with F1's and the C1 up front and B2's for the rear. Absolutely amazing speakers.

    Also, check out www DOT wackys DOT ca

    They have several stores in Canada and they carry the Athena speakers as well. I have both Wacky's and Future Shop locally so I just played them off each other for a while until FS gave me the best price ;-)

    "stupid 15 post rule before I can post URL's!!!" smartest move a forum could ever do! IMO!

    Mike, I'm trying to keep my eye out for a single AS-f2, and since Athena won't sell me one I'm stck waiting.

    I'm looking at picking up a single if somebody wants 1 for a centre channel.

    That's won't be till the first week of May though!
