I've been surfing looking for the best price on a complete set of Lsi speakers to replace my current setup. After finding some good prices I called a local high end audio shop that sells Polks (not the Lsi line yet) and asked if they would be able to match the prices that I found online. I explained that I wanted to spend my money locally. Of course they said no and quoted me a price that was $1100 more than the internet shops that I found! They also had the nerve to tell me that the price they quoted was $500 below list price. I asked why they could not match the price that I found( I even offered to tell them where) but the sales weeney just mumbled some lame assed bull**** about Crutchfield and Circuit City being the only authorized internet sales agents (according to his Polk Rep.) Fine, "So what does that have to do with not matching a competitors price?' I asked. Again he starts with the authorized dealer crap and sensing that he is not going to get any of my hard earned cash he starts laying the blame on Polk for setting a price that all of the "Authorized dealers" must agree to. If this is the case then I fear for the future of this country as a free enterprise giant. SAY IT AIN'T SO.
Where will I buy my next set of speakers?
Hint: "Locally" is not even close!
