Any interest in this offering from Marantz ? The price certainly seems attractive.
Cosed box at list price? Your shop won't even take it out and let you hear it first? If so I'd stay away from that place for good. I've gotten similar treatment from dealers I've dealt with and now my motto is do my own research and all I care about is the cheapest possible deal I can get. Best bet is to find one on hear used then you won't lose to much. Sound like a cool product I I didn't know it ran on battery. I have the foxl unit with is pretty small but cool and sounds good for its size and also the meridian F80 very nice but must be plugged in.
