Well I am a first time poster here, and I didn't want this to be my first post. I have been VERY closely following the information about the upcoming AVP700. Well I went to the local dealer here in Waterloo, Ontario. "Soundstage Fine Audio". Well that was an extremely disappointing experience. I walked in and asked if he had heard anything about the product (worth a shot ). Of course, he hadnt. So I asked about the AVR300 and if they store did home trials, as I would like to get a feel for the sound and video handling. I am not going to drop close to 3k (cdn) on a piece of high end equipment with out trying it out on my own speakers (B&W CM series) with my own amp (Parasound A52). The owner looked me over and basically said No, because people like you dont tend to have the right source to do the piece justice. What the hell is that? Then he walked away. So hopefully if there are some Canadian members on this board, they could suggest where they bought their equipment from? I may be young looking, but never judge a book by its cover.
