OK, I just went to a dealer here in Winter Park FL to purchase a pair of 200's, a 20, and the ultracube 10. I had done lots of research beforehand, but when I got there ready to have them order, I noticed their sign advertised the 200's as $1299. In my research I thought the 200's were msrp'ed at $1198. But the salesman went to his latest pricesheet from Paradigm and reinforced that they were not 1198, but 1,299 and insisted they do not sell any paradigms above MSRP. Can someone please help me determine if Paradigm has increased their price, or if I was taken??? I already paid with my credit card, but I did not yet receive the speakers (just the sub). Also they only gave me a 5% discount an insisted they could not go higher except when the paradigm rep comes (twice a year) at which time they could do 12%.
These guys are the only Paradigm dealer in Central Florida (as far as I know) so i'm wondering if they are playing games with me. Please let me know if you have heard of a price increase, or please give a quick call to your dealer to check - it would be most appreciated!
ps. the ultracube 10 sounds wonderful with my Paradigm Phantoms (temp setup)!
