I have been in a couple of the large distribution centers for both FedEx and UPS and if you saw the way some of these tens of thousands of parcels and boxes are handled you would cringe and at the same time, wonder how more goods aren't damaged. We are usually talking overnight loading and unloading and I think some of these guys doing the work are half asleep. There also could be two or three loading and unloading cycles before it even gets on the truck to be delivered to the buyer's home and that further increases the chance for damage.

The trouble is there is unfortunately, only a handful of companies that can do this kind of high volume international shipping so we are stuck with them and hope for the best when our shipment arrives.

I know it's a crap shoot with these companies. I have bought 2 sets of M80s systems(2004 and 2010) and they arrived in great shape. Not to give an excuse but maybe a reason but they were much larger heavier boxes (harder to throw maybe) and a different time of year. The holidays must increase their volume 10 fold!

When tracking the delivery I see the driver loaded his truck for delivery to my house 20 miles away at 2:51 AM and it arrived that evening at 7 PM....long day indeed.

Since I am and old retired goat I am going to spend the rest of the day getting familiar with the 1500 and have some listening fun.
