Okeedokee, done deal.
XA2 for $899.00 with free 4yr extended warranty plus $14.99 shipping.
I called them and asked if I could pick it up because I lived in the next town over and they said no problem so I saved on the shipping and I receive the product faster, win win if you ask me!
I am so excited especially being Christmas and all! Speaking of which, I want to thank the AVS forum for their early Christmas gift to me which was advising me that VE existed right under my nose (like 15 minutes away) and I had no clue because all I ever did was hit the Bestbuy/Circuit City which are also very close to me.
