You're right, it was unfair of me, I apologize. However, the root of the question was whether or not I could purchase the blemished speakers, regardless of what kind of discount, at the local shop, or if I had to go through them. I'm not trying to put anyone in any sort of precarious situation, I am merely trying to find out where I have to go. By the way, I was not asking Ian to honour anything, I was asking him about my local store, which in hindsight was rather silly but perhaps he could have offered some sort of insight. It's not about sales pitches or trying to worm the best price humanly possible out of anyone, it's about getting the right setup for the right room at a fair price, period.
