Hi everybody..Thought this thread may be of interest to you. Found out a couple of weeks ago Richer Sounds were selling the 605 for 300. Phoned my local Newcastle store and asked if they had any black left. No blacks left. They did have a silver. I said i'll take thank you very much and put a 50% deposit down. Went instore today to pay balance, nothing there to pay the balance on! They had sold it! Slightly upset at this stage. "Reservation sticker must've fallen off" said Ben. I said "use bigger stickers next time". Ian tried to sell me an alternative. I wasn't listening....i wanted my onkyo! Ian then mentioned the new onkyo model 606 and said i could have one of those for 350.00. I said i couldn't push to that, he then dropped it by another 50 to 300!I said yes So...i was very upset that they sold my 605...but i gained an 606 for the same price. I must admit the customer care is very good. They practically bent over backwards to keep me happy.
