Yeah that salesman was great. Even if I told him I was just looking around he would still talk to me for over an hour ever time I came to the store. I probably spent at least 5000 with him from the time I was 14 to 22 and I brought him another 5000 from family. I consider that to be a good amount because I worked for my money as a teenager so that wasn't easy to come up with. He was truly the coolest dealer I have ever met. He never tried to talk me up above what I was looking at and that was a complete switch from what I usually see. He left the store before they closed so hopefully he found something in the audio field because he was a genius in that area.

I don't love the new dealer but it's the only place around I can find paradigms. As far as receivers and tvs I'll go online for that.

mjpearce023 I wonder if he still lives in the area after all these years. If he does maybe you could meet at a diner or somewhere and talk about how audio has changed over the years?

bladerunner6 he should be interested in small and big purchases. Maybe you should find another dealer. I don't like how he wasn't involved in your Yamaha receiver purchase.

Venomous I think that Best buy won't be around in 2 to three years either. They are trying to close some stores, but open new ones geared towards cell phones and other stuff. A lot of people buy smart phones, so maybe it will work out for them. Only time will tell.
