I personally will affirm comments regarding Magnolia. These issues are not isolated to any given location it is the result of a corporate mentality driven by the "bean counters". I will only go back to view the picture of a new TV and subsequently buy somewhere else at a great savings.

IMHO manufactures (Martin Logan, McIntosh etc.) should put some effort in reviewing their distributors on all facets of how they run their business. It worked well for me in my 45+ years prior to my retirement. It was never pleasant to tell an existing distributor he was done but necessary to maintain and grow my business.

I agree with you guys but Magnolia/Best Buy is a drug for these vendors that’s tough to escape. My local Best Buy had 3 full McIntosh home theater systems go out recently and I’m friends with one of customers so i know it went out with nice speakers to boot. I’m guessing they sell a ton of McIntosh, B&W and Martin Logan despite their sound rooms. Wonder how big Magnolia is for these vendors vs any other single dealer or chain?
