Nice to see an owners thread here again...
You Sir, are a great representative of your company. In my brief history as an AV123 customer, I have experienced nothing but top notch service so far. The fact that you have a dedicated forum connected to your website speaks volumes. Whereas CNET's review may consist of one single editor's opinion, it does not remotely compare to an entire forum composed of a wide spectrum of customers (ranging from the novice to an audiophile) speaking positively about your products backed up by a 30 day trial period. For an ID company, that is the type of commitment I would expect from a confident company competing against other B&M stores.

Excellent suggestion. Let me put together my thoughts before I edit the first post. I was, and somewhat still am, oblivious of the negativity AV123 has experienced in the past on AVSForum. I will try to focus the first post to help prevent this of happening again as one of my main goals.
On a lighter note, I just received my rs450s in the mail yesterday, BUT have not hooked them up yet. At first, the wifey was not so welcoming of the HUGE speakers in the living room and her anti-Rosewood gibberish. She hesitantly let me order them for the sake of our marriage, but once they arrived, boy did her attitude change!
These things are BEAUTIFUL! says the wifey. For those straddling the fence on these, just order the damn things! Our black/expresso furniture match up really nicely with the Rocket's black lacquer finish and the red wood finish blends with our red designer sofa pillows. I haven't hooked them up yet because I'm currently running all my AV cables behind the walls and adding speaker wall plates.
Here's my work in progress
1) run speaker wire for mains, center channel, and subwoofer
2) run DVI, S Video, and Component
3) add electrical approximately 5ft to plasma
4) patch up holes
5) texture and paint (currently here)
My VERY HUMBLE beginnings will consist of Rocket rs450s and a Bigfoot powered by a new Yamaha 5950 receiver, and a 12 Dayton sub. Future plans will consist of in-ceiling surround sound with possibly a Rocket subwoofer.
