OK troops, now that you've got mr going in the right direction, where do you think is a good place to purchase said stuff. I looked in the HT for sale section, but didn't get the answer I was looking for. I would never order something from a catalog or internet outfit without having listened to or seen it first. So, say I find that must have killer TV monitor at Sears. I just jot the model number down and then buy it from who??? We have a Circuit City here but no Best Buy (my daughter lives in Indiana and they have a BB, seven hours away). How about the 10,000 internet places, yes,no? I like the idea of local service and warranties and a place to gripe if I have to, but I like to keep as much money in pocket as I can for other things too. Is there enough difference in vendors to even look around- other than my example, Sears, seems to to be MUCH higher than CC or BB? Where do you all get your stuff?
