After weeks of reading online reviews I finally decided to take the plunge and purchased my first sound system, the YSP-2200. When I arrived home from work yesterday the box was waiting for me! I brought the 32 lb box inside the house and noticed some damage to the box. There was some sort of impact along the bottom edge of the box which actually tore a hole 2-3 inches long. I can probably squeeze a couple of fingers inside. And on the back of the box there is a straight-line dent about 4 inches long. It was enough to crack the white cardboard surface but it did not break through to the inside like the one on the front. I have not opened the box. I would like to ask members who have purchased this type of speaker system to tell me whether or not these sound projectors are manufactured and packaged well enough to withstand the hazards of some rough handling and even box damage, or if it would be in my best interest to request a reshipment and ask the company to pack the Yamaha box inside of another box. By the way, there is a clear "Fragile - Handle With Care" label on the top of the box. I immediately took a couple of photos and emailed them to the company where I purchased it. I am waiting to hear back from them. Thank you for your input.
