OK, just for the record, I did NOT buy from Electroline, I was quoting someone else that had (Eros, I think). I do know that dealers that believe they are exclusive with Mits are very angry/jealous of their prices, and will probably either try to shut 'em down, or get them to raise their prices. Finding out whether Mits will honor their warranty on sets bought through them would be a critical factor in a purchase from them. I don't mind dropping another hundy or two to buy from a reputable, local B&M, but I can't see shelling out thousands for that benefit. Since I know they read these threads, I'm sure they're checking out the credentials of certain dealers. Hope they sack up and share their info. . .
