By the way.

Everytime I take a look at the Elac Uni-Fi's in my living room they remind me of this


Loved that game so much

I got these for the 349 at Amazon but before I pulled the trigger I emailed Elac directly to see if they would match. I wanted to buy direct instead of Amazon.

They replied saying they couldn't match the price and he believed the Amazon price was a mistake.

Stop talking out your ass. Best Buy nor anyone else cares if it was approved or not, if that is the price on Amazon, they will match it. Period.

Actually, they should not be honoring it AS OF WHEN I POSTED. Which was AFTER the price went back to what it should have been.

Oh AVS Forum...

well no **** sherlock, they would only match it at whatever it is on the site, at that time. Anyone with common sense knows this.

Hopefully you can follow this, gumshoe...

The reason I mentioned it, as you can see by multiple users trying to take advantage of Best Buy price matching by showing screen shots etc, they SHOULD NOT be matching retroactively as people are hoping.

You sound like you're 14 years old, so I'll let it slide. Multiple people have just posted about doing exactly that. My IQ is dropping going back and fourth with you, so I'll stop. Hopefully you can piece this all together by now.

you would have to be an idiot to think a store would match something at an old price. Best Buy and everyone else only matches what others are currently selling for. you show them an old pic they will tell you to beat it.

Anyone halfway reasonable knows that best buy will not price match based on a screenshot, people asked for screen shots for a price protection through their credit cards.

I'm not sure why you're so concerned that Best Buy is doing this.. they don't do this. When you request a price match, they go online and check the price. If they see the same price as you're requesting, they match it. If they don't, they won't allow the price match. They've had this policy for years

So true, just need to keep in mind Amazon's return policy versus BB

I liked my first generation AJ Pioneers, and I'm sure these are also a great bang for the buck, but I'm really happy with what I'm using now:
https://www.avsforum.com/forum/89-spe...er-review.html
If it weren't for AVS, I'd probably still have a HTIB.
And I wouldn't have a basement full of unused speakers.
I'm glad you're enjoying them.

Did you really need to quote that entire post in your reply?

Amazon is out of stock again and the "regular" price of $499 is back. Looks like they get 10 - 20 in every week or two and sell out quick at the $349 price. I decided to jump in this morning when there was still seven in stock and bought a pair, along with an ELAC Uni-fi UC5 Center speaker to complete the front sound stage. It will be an upgrade from my trusty Athena F2 fronts and matching Athena center speaker. I've had the Athena Speakers for over 10 years so I hope for great things from ELAC with this upgrade.
