I am HAPPY to announce that after weeks and/or perhaps the last two months of anticipation, that Best Buy has decided to carry the Harman/Kardon AVR-354. They don't have any in yet as it is on backorder status. But the fact that they have it pictured on their website is encouraging. I knew that eventually, Best Buy would wake up and come to their collective senses. And now, it seems so that they have.
Don't believe me, you can check things out for yourself at "www.bestbuy.com
Due to some other things that have came up in this week, I have orignially said that I was going to pull the trigger in a couple of weeks. Now, I am going to put off my pending purchase until 08/22/08. But I will be getting one. And now that Best Buy will be carrying it, I will be buying my unit from them as the appeal to get it serviced locally if any service issues come up has always been paramount to me.
But anyway...... as a heads up, go to www.bestbuy.com
and check things out for yourself.
I think you will be pleasantly surprised.......... $799.00 (plus shipping if you get it shipped to your destination of choice........ but since I will be getting mine locally now, I will just go to the store and pick it up when it comes to the store).
Thanks....... and take care everyone.......
