Thanks. FWIW, my friend did
speak with Outlaw today. You guys were right; no budging on the EX.
Interesting enough...he spoke with 2 people (not sure one right after the other, or if he called twice, trying to get a different result...lol); but he said the one gal he spoke with did try to sell him on the Plus. The other rep...when he mentioned he was looking at the Epik Legend, at $500...he told him it was a great sub.
So...with the EX out of the race (or is
it), I asked him about how firm he was on his budget. He's got some wiggle room, but I gotta tell ya...I'm hesitant to take him up much higher. My
philosophy...whether it be HT, or 2-channel (where I have significantly more money invested)...is you have to be able to compare to something.
Sure, I believe the EX might be well worth the extra $150...but how will he
know? This is his first HT, first sub; he's got no frame of reference. I'd almost rather save him the $150...get him a "plenty good" $500 unit, and let him get the jump on sub 2.0
going to post that new poll (http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...hp?t=1408461);
@ $500, Epik Legend or Outlaw Plus. But if someone really wants to sway me...not so much with another model in the same line, like the EX...but another line altogether; HSU, SVS...I'd consider taking him a little higher.
I don't want to abuse the privilege though; I feel like we should be able to get him something "plenty good", for $600 or under.
