With that sort of consumer movement what would their motivation be to lower the price because I say I'll go elsewhere? I'm pretty happy with the PB price as it is (A) saving me roughly $1,000 and (B) I think of the units in the stores are probably the first batch that had serious quality issues. Glad I won't be getting one of those!
I was also talking to a salesman a week ago. Had no interest in a price match but did comment they had a lot of returns on the Sammy. I informed him that it was a QC issue with the 5063s or at least that was the hardest hit.
I will admit I am a little apprehensive buying something like this over the net but it appears most of the problems I've heard about are related to the ballast that is easily repaired with a service call. It sucks that you have to have a service call after you get a new set but I guess it's a sensitive component. The bright side is I don't plan on moving it once I get it situated on a yet to be determined stand.
sells the Salamander line of furniture and I think I recall seeing the triple on display. I'm going to try and get there tomorrow to check out pricing. I hate to drop a grand on a stand but it sure would look nice and it's a a few inches shorter than the one I currently have on order. With any luck it could be adjusted down another inch or 2.
But they look awesome and the wife likes it too. And as tex has stated the doors will go a long way in keeping dust to a minimum and hiding wires.
I'm on day 32 since I placed my order for the 5663. I should be getting a call any minute now. Any of you 56er's that ordered around that date heard anything yet?
