Glad for everybody that got in on these. I got three A9 for my front three with some A3's for the front uppers from last year's sales. Will probably end up with the bipole surrounds(forgot the number) if the egg doesn't get A7's in stock this holiday season.
What about the reviewer who mentions at the A7 and a good sub may be a better setup?ReplyQuote Multi 0
That was the deliema I had last year. I wanted 7x of the A7 with 2 subs for our basement theatre/play area, but I missed them on sale last November/December. I then started thinking about the A9's as my front 3 and 4x of the A7 for surrounds and rears but I never saw the A7 in stock and on sale at the same time, then the A9 were sold out. FF 8-9 months and I am ending up with the RTi A9.
Newegg really playes games with these prices, so watch for them. Every other week they had a different status for the whole line. Sometimes two or three items would be discontinued, and one would be in stock for 30% more than MSRP with the other color at MSRP. Then the next wekend, the whole set would be listed but out of stock. The weekend after that all of the prices would change and half of them were not even listed under discontinued(literally just gone from the listing), then the next weekend some would be back as discontinued, some would be in stock all of the prices would change. I must have checked for these to be on sale 100 times in the last year and I really lost respect for the Egg due to all these listing shennanigans. But...I do LOVE the price I finally got them for!!!.
I have had a post-it on my work and home desktop monitors with the sale prices from last year, hope it helps someone else.
RTi A9 $499.99
RTi A7 $299.99
RTi A5 $279.99

I didn't get prices on the A4 or A1 last year. So far the A1 were $179/pair in Fall 2012.
