For this week only, 6th Ave electronics is offering a "name your own price". Submit your request and a "offering manager" will review and decide to take your offer or not.

http://www.6ave.com/shop/home.aspx

====
This is not a claim by me that this will be great offers, but it is worthy of checking out, especially for those in the market already.

I just picked up the 51 for $240 even. I also got the Harmony One for $160.

I saved about $100 total with this deal!

I don't know if it was the "best" they could do, I just offered those prices and they accepted.

I'm wondering if you said that you were a member of AVS Gold if you would get an even bigger break. Worth a try.

Yeah, I was thinking the same thing? I guess they didn't want to waste their time with me over 4 bucks? However, I asked for two price deals, maybe thats why? Who knows...

Whats also nice is that they give you free regular ground shipping too... 51FD and an H1 for $400 shipped.

i offered $1600 for the open-box jvc rs1, and $2100 for the new one, both got declined without even a counter offer i thought they were pretty reasonable offers.

What's the going price on an SC-07 right now? I want to send in an offer for one but of course their site lists price as full retail.

WOW, if you thought those were REASONABLE, I am afraid of your definition of unreasonable.....
$2100 probably would not buy you the OPEN box one, let alone a sealed box...

Not sure about SC-07, but I just got an SC-05 from there at $699. If I lived outside of NY/NJ there would have been no tax. Can't beat $700 straight up if you live in lets say CT or PA.

Did you establish an account with them? Not sure, but you may have to do that first.

You did the name your price for an SC-05 and got it for $699? That's a great price.

Yes, that was through name your price. When I took that price to the store, the salesman's eyes almost popped out of his head.

Hey all...I submitted an offer for $230 and it was accepted. I've since decided that I should not buy this but I can forward the link to you if you are interested in this. First PM to me for this link gets the opportunity to buy one of these gems at a really decent price.

Cheers...
