Beware Sonic Electronix

I should know better but I ordered an RF PBR300X2 from Sonic Electronics via Bestbuy.com site. I used some of my BB reward certificates for the purchase. Listed amp cost was $121.95 which is a good price for this amp. Waited three days then called for order status only to find out order was cancelled stating "product is no longer available". Sonic Electronix continues to sell the product via BB but updated their price to $169.95. ZERO accountability by either BB or SE to uphold the price I paid at time of transaction. I need to stick with local business and support the guy who is dealing with you face-to-face. Live and learn...

Sounds like it should say Beware Best Buy. You bought it through them and they were using a 3rd party to ship. Sounds like how Amazon sells a lot of their goods.

I'm not surprised BB didn't sell at offered price. I have had issues with BB in the past.

not sticking up for them, but maybe they had a limited quantity of them at that price and when those sold that was it.

course, if that was the case, would have been nice for them to have some type of inventory control so that if they were sold out, it didn't still show as available.....

I understand the concept of reality, but find it too confining for a way of life.

Aye. Sometimes we expect up-to-the-second information when we order online but it's not always the case.

Any compelling reason you're going with the PBR over, say, the soundstream pn2.350d for $114 (amazon)?

I picked the PBR based on feedback on this forum. Seemed to be a staple for system upgrades. The PN series is also on my list buy I read that some experience issues with FM reception. Any input on that?

Good point. FM recep wasn't an issue for me. But I haven't checked it yet, I've only just tested the system thru bluetooth, my fm antenna is 'missing' (stored bike at in-laws. they did some "rearranging").

I didnt have any problems with Sonic Electronix when I ordered my kappas through them. Bought, payed and 2 days later they were at my door.

Best Buy is WORTHLESS!!!!! I dont step inside their doors.

IVE had several good dealings with Sonic and they have much better amps for the same price as well. I bought this amp over a year ago from them and replaced the Rockford pbr it was night and day difference. Ran it for a season on 4 Hertz 6.5s then upgraded to a 4 channel version BX4 http://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_...Audio-NX2.html

Sabre - Why was the Massive Audio amp better than the PBR?
