Well the Girlfriend didn't go for the layaway option, she didn't go for financing option, and she sure didn't go for the savings account fund.

I think I am going to have to sit out for now and miss the 20%. I will do it later when I can get away with it and nab one from the FO at the normal 10%

I have bought myself a lot of stuff lately (epic 80-500, denon 3808, ps3, toshiba hd dvd, weber summit s470, ect...) but not much for the GF (jewelry, camera) so I suppose she has a point. I guess I better be glad that I was able to convince her to let me get as much stuff as I have already

off to look at diamonds...

You know, you haven't done half-bad. I'm sure it will work out at some point.

I'm still debating my approach with my better half... she's given the nod on the upgrade... but not necessarily the _addition_ of another man-sized subwoofer in our media room. ;\)

Jason/SK, you guys are probably right... I just have to bring myself around to the decision. There's a very strong need versus want argument going on in my head.

Decisions decisions.

I only put my suggestion out there because I like to spend other people's money, especially when I have none of my own at the moment.\:\(

Well, the advice helps... here's a more positive way to look at your suggestion.

Buying the new EP-800 with the discount and keeping the 600 only costs me ~$900 more than trading the 600 in and having only one sub after the changes. (due to the change in price required to do the trade-up and the shipping costs of sending one 600 back)

Not that I think my wife will agree with this logic, but still, it sounds good when I say it to myself...

yeah, I just tried to post the same thing but the forums were timing out.

How can you NOT afford to get an ep600 for essentially half price?

You guys are awful (and right). I really should have seen this coming. ;\)

I'm traveling on business for two more days... that gives me two uninterrupted days to practice the pitch I'll give my wife on this plan when I get home.
