While you're at it, call all of these companies and talk to them. It's a lot of money to spend without at least speaking directly with someone who represents the company.
I do realize that there may be issues with the amp... it's just that I haven't read about any and would like to. I actually own an a2-300 and am looking to acquire another for my bedroom setup.
I've been keeping an eye on that B-Stock unit for a while now. I started to email some of these companies, and I had emailed eD last Friday, haven't heard back, I'll probably give them a call. Was pretty bummed that the Outlaw didn't work out, but I understand why, they emailed me pretty quick
I've seen some issues on other boards, and on this, I'll see if I can find a few:http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...9#post20388699http://forum.blu-ray.com/subwoofers/...ml#post4918827
Both of those are working on multiple amp failures.
I saw another, can't find it now, that said they really liked their A2-300 when it worked, but they were on their third amp. And I've seen other posts where the amp failed pretty quick or during the first movie. I don't know if these failures were related to the big rush they had last year, if so, it might not be much to worry about. And I'd be interested to see the number sold vs the number of failures. I'm sure it's small, it's just not something I'm all that interested in experiencing really. It does keep coming up as the best bang for the buck sub though, nothing else is rated even close to that low for that price.
