Got lucky today. The 1018 was on my short list, but I was still undecided.
That was until I walked into the evil blue and yellow store today in Oakdale, MN.
I'll spare you the details, but there sat the 1018 on clearance for $359.99. Then they didn't have any in back so I ended up with the floor model for 10% off. Said and done I walked out after tax for $345.86
. I was so friggin happy I forgot to make sure to get the MACC mic
. So I'll have to either see if they still have it or I'll call Pioneer and just say it was not in the box.
Thanks for all your posts they have helped greatly with setup and decision making.
