A week ago today, I called Rik's Music and ordered a dbx 2215 EQ. His price was $30 less than GC, and there's no tax and no shipping charges, so I saved over $60. He sent it UPS ground, and the shipping notice said the anticipated delivery date was May 13th (today). It was in my office at 9:10 am today. No muss, no fuss. Rik's salesman was very pleasant and helpful. UPS did what they said they'd do. So it CAN happen, if your karma is properly adjusted. I'll definitely buy more stuff from Rik. OK, good-bye.
