I found a big best buy, by accident while walking in New York City today. I saw a sign that said home theater downstairs. I saw some definitive technology speakers hooked up to a surround sound system. I saw some televisions. I found a room that you could shut the door to. I asked if any workers could play some music on some of the speakers for me. I asked to hear two different sets of b&w speakers, a pair of Martin Logan Electrostats, and two floor standing Mirage speakers. The sales guy fooled me with the big bass sound. I thought that all of that bass was coming from the Martin Logan speakers. He said that the bass was from a 10 inch b&w sub woofer. He let me hear the speakers with the sub woofer off. I thought that I read that people thought new pioneer receivers were junk anymore, and had a lot of failures. He was using a 1,300 dollar pioneer receiver. I thought that it sounded good. He thought that the b&w speakers sounded better then the mirage speakers. I liked them both. He was helpful. I have read online about a lot of people hating best buy magnolia because of poor customer service. My experience at this store was good. This guy at magnolia was nice and answered all of my questions.
