It's on back order and your order limit to one speaker. But Infinity Primus 363 for $107 and free shipping. Get a friend to order you another and there's your pair.

mad.gif Website says in stock at all three stores in town, none actually have any as it turns out. mad.gifmad.gifmad.gif Called and was told I could back order, but the website says $37.19 for ground shipping.

Amazon has them for $147 each with prime 2-day shipping and no tax. It will cost about $60 more for the pair thru Amazon once you subtract the local sales tax. Fry's wants $102.19 for 2-day shipping, but they are on back order so what's the point. I'm very tempted to just get them from Amazon and enjoy them on Monday.

To paraphrase Mattress Mac, I can't listen to a back order slip.

EDIT: They now seem to be $157 each at Amazon. And oops, Amazon wants tax too.

These are a great deal, and I almost bought a pair.  I decided to go and audition them.  VERY glad that I did.  Now, don't get me wrong, the deal is smoking.  Very hard to beat that price.  However, the sales guy was very patient as I moved around the demo room.  These Infinities were first.  Next was the Klipsch.  Some people love them.  I'm not one of them.  Ruled them out right away.  The next were Polk TSx440's.  LOVED them.  The sales guy even moved the Polk's over to the same setup as the Infinities so I could do a quick A/B comparison.  FOR ME, there was no comparison.  The Polks won by a LONG shot.  Ended up ordering a set of RTiA5's off the Polk ebay store (figured if the TSx's were good, the RTi's had to be better - I was right!).  They were more than the Infinities would be, but I am so grateful I did it.

 

Free shipping on the Polks, too.

Take it for what it's worth.  This is just my observation and PERSONAL PREFERENCE.  I'm sure, once out of the demo room, and without others to compare it to, they'd be great, and again, the price can't be beat.  If you can go listen to them, I highly recommend it.

 

Happy hunting.

Thanks for the reply Pitaface. Fry's still shows them in stock at all the local stores, but the price is back at full price. I"m calling the store today and if they actually have them in stock, I will never buy another thing from them.

I was tempted to get the Polk Monitor 70 deal, but I was afraid my Onkyo 828 wouldn't be able to drive them properly since they seem to need a lot of power according to the reviews. I'm looking at the monitor 60 for $129 each at Newegg.

Stop by the Polk thread.  Lots of good advice their with what models need more power than the average AVR.
