I think they have a trade in program where you can trade in your 750s for the 1Ks. Don't know how much the allow yoou for the 750s, but, if you're really interested, you should give them a call to find out. I know a bunch of the 750 owners on the forum are trading in their 750s for the 1Ks.

Yoy are right again Jack.Heres what Mark says about the trade in allowance.

"At the same time, I’ve wanted to drive home a point about “The Rocket Sound” and to do this properly the ONLY way I could come up with was for anyone that wanted to borrow the speakers should be able to do so (I’m speaking mainly of the RS 750 here) and experience our sound for themselves. So… in part one could say I’m serving myself (our company and YOU) by allowing for a complete dollar-for-dollar trade in of your 750’s on the 1K’s… and you would be right on all three counts"

The only issue is that I got my 750 sigs "B" stock for about $900 with shipping. To pay for shipping (both ways) any pay for the delta between the two speakers, we are still looking at a chunk of change. I was going to wait to hear them in my area before I do anything. If I did go with the 1K I would think about moving my M60's to 2 channel and sell off my QS4's. That is one upgrade my wife would notice and I would catch some crap over. We'll see though

$2799.00 for the 1000's! Dam that is a lot of cash. At that sort of price I don't think the Axiom vs. Rocket debate will happen that much anymore. If you ask me, Rocket just priced themselves into a whole new category and should be compared to speakers in that range. I hate to say it but I have yet to hear a self powered, side firing (Bass) tower I would own. I have had a few from Boston Acoustics VR series to Def Tech and I thought they all were boomy, sloppy etc when it came to bass vs. a stand alone good quality sub. I'm not saying the Rockets will be but I have always loved the looks of the 750's and have thought long and hard about trying a pair but I doubt I will ever have the urge to try the 1000's. I'm also guessing that these speakers are going to be real fussy to place. I'm sure the good folks at Rocket might disagree with that but I'm fairly sure just based on the design that they will be.

I can keep yapping here but I don't want people to think I'm slamming these speakers as I'm not. I'm slamming the design and nothing else. As for looks, the Rockets are still one of the better looking speakers out there!

If anyone in here does upgrade and wants to dump there 750's, let me know.

I know there are a few on audiogon for a fair price. Also, people will be trading in their 750's for 1K's so watch their B stock page.

I did take a peek at Audigon but the ones I saw everyone wanted over $800.00 a pair. I can get them direct from AV123 for that (B Stock). I'm in no rush. If I came across a pair at the right price I would buy them and add them into a 2 channel system or something.

You know you little punks who don't have the guts to take me on in the forums STOP pm'ing me when you disagree with something I have said!

I guess I should explain. I made the post about the 1000's and some little punk goes and PM's me telling me the Rockets rule and the usual kiddy crap and that I'm an ahole etc etc etc. Jeeeez buddy, read my post. I didn't cut up squat. If you can't discuss it like a big boy, go back to your bottle and leave those of us alone who can!

On the Rckets website it says the 750s that will be traded in are going to be offered for $750 to $800 a pair.I believe thats about the same as they offer in B-stock.
