I've contacted American Theater to inquire about purchasing an SCD-XA5400ES, seems their phone line's are always too busy to answer. I left a message (in regards to purchasing) never got any reposnse. I figure they don't care to sell anything? So I sent an e-mail, I got the following response (quote):
"We receive somewhere in the neigborhood of 400-500 calls a day-Just from a Logistics & cost factor.
We decided last year it would be much more efficent to hire a screening service that determines which are customer that are looking to immediately purchase complete home theater systems.
That is our main business, as far as Internet Sales, all of our ad's clearly explain how to order & have a link provided in the ad's to check-out. If your uncomfortable in anyway I am sorry.

I guess my only option here is to order directly on-line. Although price is good, not sure how solid this dealer is?
