    I've got a chance to pick up a SPL-1000 for $999 at my local dealer... I really love how it sounds with my B&W DM604's in the demo room...

    Is $999 a good price? I've only got a until friday night to decide.. *sigh* I wasn't planning on getting this sub, or any sub right now.. But, if this is a good deal I may not be able to resist.

    Recommendations?

    Thanks!

    Did the dealer tell you he was giving you a discount with that price? I wouldn't buy from such a dishonest dealer. $999 is the MSRP of a Velodyne SPL-1000.

    I would check with onecall too, they had some refurbed SPL1200s at $749 a while back. As long as you are comfortable with a refurb(full warranty),I would definitely go for the slightly larger 1200 myself,
    you can also print out the onecall page and give your local dealer the chance to approach the pricing from onecall. If they can get within 10-20% of the mail order price that is usually a good indicator they value your business [​IMG]

    One call has the SPL-1000 for $1199... So, I'm thinking $999 is a great deal.

    Is that a good assumption? I've only got until tomorrow after work to decide, then the sale stops. Man, I hate upgraditis.

    reliable audio video is not a Velodyne Dealer.
    I do not think Crazy Eddies is a dealer as well.

    Hi I actually spoke to Chris today from 6ave.com , and he said he'd sell the Velodyne SPL-1000 for 800 shipped. You better try him first. I was thinking about getttin this or the SPL-1200 for 1000 shipped.
    He just told me to call him when im ready to order and tell him the price. His ext is 509.
    HOpe this helps[​IMG]

    Well, I went a head and picked up the SPL-1000 from my local rep. I paid $999, but they've been very good to me in the past and I know that if I have any problems I'll be well taken care of.
    Regardless, I really like the piece. It mates well with my B&W 604's. Very tight, nice extension... And it's small. I'm happy.. Sure, I could have paid less. But what ya gonna do? [​IMG]

    I have a SPL-1200 and B&W 602S2's. I bought the SPL1200 refurbed from Onecall.

    I highly recommend Onecall AND the Velo.
