    Am I being very unclear? I just woke up after a throbbing headache...:(

    Okay, B&H Photo/Video has crazy prices on Stewart World Amplifiers!

    So, by following the steps above (you can't directly link to the page), you'll see what I'm talking about.

    Better?:)

    There are a few conditions:

    1)Special Order -- No returns
    2)Shipping takes about 2 weeks because they are special order.

    I ordered one today. Not really worried about the no return thing. They are new in box and under full 3 year warranty.

    The prices are nothing short of amazing.

    Killer price. I gave more for mine a few months ago. At whatever price, the 2.1 is a very good power amp.

    Actually, I called Bass NW yesterday and they would not match the price. I told them that I would much rather do business with them, but Evan said he'd have to pass on this one. I suppose the profit margin is close to zilch...

    All the Stewart amps went down in price recently. They've got a new line on the way, I think. That's still a good price.

    I believe Stewart always drop ships unless you want some to put on display in your shop.

    That's what I thought and B&H said they'd love to just have it drop-shipped (seeing as i live in WA, Stewart is in CA and B&H is in NY), but they said that Stewart would not let them. The called Stewart (or maybe a middleman supplier) and called me back later with a NO answer. They estimated a total wait time of 2 weeks. That's from CA>NY>WA. No biggie...at least I have a working amp until then.:)

    Make sure it has a serial # when you get it. . .I don't know nothing about B&H but there've been some cases of export-only amps being sold sans-serial# domestically at discounts (which is a no-no as they have no warranty).

    After a month I had to cancel my QSC order from a different place because they kept giving me the runaround. Their sketchy supplier dried up.

    B&H is totally legit as far as being an authorized dealer, to my knowledge. I've never dealt with them, so I don't know how good their service or prices are.

    The people who were selling amps without serial numbers on eBay weren't authorized dealers, although at least one of them pretended to be.

    I've bought a lot of camera equipment from B&H over the years, and they are a first-rate company. No BS, no bait-and-switch. Knowledgeable salespeople, helpful and quick. You'll like them.
