    Good online retailers?

    Personally, I have to recommend I have bought four items from them and they have always delivered on time. The prices are always really low but not always the lowest. I find myself going to them even when they are not the lowest because I have read horror stories with other online retailers. I was wondering who else has had very good experiences with other retailers that offer exceptional value

    2,671 is great.

    Oddly enough, it seems like really nice middle of the road equipment is not really available online. You can find the cheap junk or a $10,000 turntable (and a $4000 needle for it) no problem but midrange stuff like Paradigm, DefTech, Boston Acoustics, PSB, or B&W are not available online. Just seems strange.

    Galen Carol Audio - Galen is an incredibly friendly guy, and the service is great.

    The Stereo Trading Outlet - discounts Kimber Kable products 10%. I've always received prompt service from them, and gotten straightforward answers to my questions.

    Here are some of the online stores I have bought consumer electronics from recently that I can recommend due to good service and prices. I have also noted some of the things I bought from them. DVD player, speaker wall mounts, etc.
    Ascend Acoustics: speakers various
    eCost: receivers
    eTail Electronics: various
    Etronics: remote controls
    HiFi for Less: cables & connectors
    J&R: various
    One Call: receiver
    Parts Express: wire & connectors
    SVS: subwoofers
    uBid: various

    One comment on uBid -- it is possible to get a bargain from them but only if you take note of the shipping cost, know the best price available elsewhere, and don't overbid.

    Folkd I've dealt with...

    I love AudioAdvisor for online retail. I mostly buy used off of ebay, but when I've gone new, AudioAdvisor has filled the bill. They also stock a lot of demo stuff cheap as well.

    Whatever site you go with, just make sure that it's an authorized dealer. If you go with an unauthorized vendor, then you automatically forfeit the factory warranty and there's no guarantee that what gets delivered is a U.S. model or even a factory sealed unit. If you're willing to forego some of the certainty with having a factory warranty, then by all means hunt out the best deal regardless. But, when making your purchase, just remember that there is a risk and reward balance to consider.
