Guy wants to sell me a brand new in box Roland Acoustics RA-2100W 5.1 HT for $700.

Found a guy on craigslist selling Roland Acoustics RA-2100W 5.1 Home Theater System brand new in box for $700. He has pics and the price tag of $3500 and he claims he bought it in 2014.

Is this a good brand?


Is this a knock off?

I've come to believe that if it sounds too good to be true than it most likely is false.

Have never heard of this brand before and I am looking to buy a 5.1 setup.

Is this a scam?

Follow your instincts about if it's too good to be true.....

Personally, I steer clear of electronics on CraigsList.

Look like Bose Acoustmass knock offs to me....PASS

You could buy this system from Fry's for $150 shipped and be much better off.

Just buy an inexpensive AVR and you're set.

On the other hand, how does £1000 of remote controls, for £90 sound? Or a pair of £1000 speakers, for £125? Those are my best bargains.

stupid quote system isn't working
