Target has the same 4-Disc 3D combo for $19.99. tongue.gif

But you'll probably be able to get this for $10 on Black Friday. smile.gif

Thank you! I feel the same way, I have put 4 speakers thru this scene and not one was harsh. The SHO-10, triple 8, eD cinema 12 upgrade and my DR's.

I just finished watching The Avengers. I would rate this a 4.5/5 for bass. There was lots of Bass present and tactical feel was somewhat present( NO HULK single digit levels). but it does seem that the ULF(under 20hz) is lacking. There were some moments that probably do dig into sub 20hz range BUT it rolls off too quickly in my opinion. This is the 3D combo pack that I bought for $19.99 at Best Buy.

So much for the naysayers claim that 3D is a dying format. ALL the local Target stores that I called in Cleveland AND SW Michigan sold out of the 3D versions in the first hour.

How'd you get it at BB for that price? The local BB has it for $29.99 and said they won't match Target's price if Target doesn't have it in stock.

BB had no problem matching Target price. Target is only 10 stores away from our BB.

If you pre-ordered through Amazon, do they automatically give you the new price? Mine was 24.99 ++........30.28 total. It might have already shipped? rolleyes.gif

I spoke to Amazon today and they refund the difference within 48hours of release day. With end of day release price being the one they refund to.

As per Amazon's website:

"Special Offers and Product Promotions
Pre-order Price Guarantee! Order now and if the Amazon.com price decreases between your order time and the end of the day of the release date, you'll receive the lowest price."

The question is: do you need to call them or is it automatic?

So, I guess to play safe, it is a good idea to call them right away.....cool.gif

It is a dying format.

Most folks recognized the better value in the 4-disk 3D set for $19.99.
Why buy just the 2-disk set for the same price?

Amazon Support told me it is automatic. Just to be safe, take a screenshot of the price at end of day, and if you don't get it in 48 hours contact them with proof.

LOL...........that is exactly what I did. So, I'll be checking my Amazon account tomorrow (end of the day) to see if the price has been adjusted.

Did you receive yours already? Mine is waiting for me at home.......biggrin.gif

Pritn ad says: Suppy limited. NO RAINCHECKS."

But folks on SlickDeals say that they ARE getting rainchecks for the 3D version at $19.99. Question will be: will they still contain the bonus disc?

I would say not long at all, as the only reason prices are this low is a price war. Amazon started it by going to 29.96, Wal-Mart followed suit. Target dropped to 24.99, then Wal-Mart copied and dropped a penny, as they usually do. So Amazon had to get in on it and go to 24.99, then Target not to be beat dropped to 19.99 and Amazon followed. All along Best Buy is still trying to sell at 29.99 or 34.99 wherever possible unless someone brings in a price match.
This is my observance as of Yesterday. It may not be 100% correct but I have been price watching since last Friday closely to since it meant whether or not I get the Amazon pre-order guarantee.

Good point. tongue.gif The harshness I heard was definitely the sound design/effect, not speaker distortion.

Just scored Avengers at BB with a Target price match. Looking forward to it!

It wasnt all that bad and i didnt notice it at other spots in the movie.

Sound design or my speakers idk, it was unpleasant though. Audyssey rolls off my system ~3db per oct above 10k all primary reflection points treated 3 of 4 vertical corners treated w/bass trapping.

I was at normal listening volume where other movies dont complain.

I enjoyed "Super 8" overall, but the train crash actually didn't impress me that much.

"X-Men: First Class" - now that was a movie with lots of really solid LFE (in addition to AQ that was, overall, very well-balanced and dynamic)! cool.gif

Your clipping your input signal... you can clearly see in the waveform it's clipped.

Yep and it makes the <20hz look stronger in relation to the rest of the spectrum as peaks of the higher bass are clipped.smile.gif
