actually, that is the same problem I have here with everything I buy. They won't bring in the nice stuff unless it's paid for first which I practically refuse to do.
I'm in a situation now where I would like to get my hands on a 3805 and compare the sound to my carver seperates to see if it's good enough for a room I'm building. The 3805 I might be able to audition, but if it doesn't sound good enough, anything more $$$ will be hard for me to hear before hand.
