Yeah, yeah, I know this argument "awesome for the money". Any sub will be awesome for the money for somebody coming from Bose $999 setup. And the live.com promotion discounted not only the price of the sub but a lot of the raving reviews as well, because posters don't forget to add things like "best $160 spent" or "very good value"... Plus really, is "thunderous" a good characteristic of a sub?
I'm sorry, I didn't mean to lump everybody together, please don't be offended, I just couldn't help but notice that the excitement really started at the time when the sub was dirt cheap, and now it's mostly frustration over long shipping time and anxiety.
The main idea of the post was to wonder: is it worth saving $10 over H100 now, and is the PA-120 really such a sweet deal NOW when its price is not $160, but $229.
And I mentioned going direct only because there is a coupon that you could use there that would make H100 $240 shipped. It's more expensive on ebay, I know.
