just getting caught up, so did yo buy the Salon's or still procrastinating ?\n\nwow, 10% sales tax ?? where do you live ?\n\nSuburbs of Chicago. 10% sales tax, 5% income tax 31\/2% real estate tax, 20% auto sales tax, they hit us twice when we trade in and buy a car, you pay sales tax on what you trade in then you pay sales tax on what you buy. 53 cents tax for every gallon of gas. $3 per pack cigarette tax. And they just introduced a new bill, it will soon be illegal to pump your own gas. If this bill passes we will pay approximately an additional 70 cents per gallon of gas. Enough of that I'm getting crabby.....Lets talk stereo's.....,\n\nI have an appointment to take another look tomorrow. Do some more negotiating. I emailed Revel asking how do I know how old these speakers might be. I haven't looked at a serial number yet. But if they are 10 years old, I should get them much cheaper. I found my old Rotel RC971. Not sure what good it will do me, I guess I can plug a cd player into it.
