When I bought a HCA2205A over a decade ago from a local dealer, they certainly did not give me a discount.
And occasionally, AA does have open boxes, demos, refurbs for less. Just not the A52 at this time.
And remember, Parasound is NOT HK, Yamaha, Denon, Onkyo, etc. Those companies since the start of internet sales have discounted heavily, compared to before the internet.
Parasound sell upscale products compared to those I mentioned. So discounts are rare or very small, by comparison.Edited by 4DHD - 10/8/12 at 4:27am
