Snooze You Lose
I want to buy a new home theater receiver to go along with my new Plasma Television. I've finally, after a very long process, decided on the Onkyo 876 . One problem, I have not yet picked out the speakers to go along with it. Who knew how hard it is to pick speakers. Seriously, there are way too many choices when it comes to speakers. Everybody has a different opinion, and everyone's advice is the same. Speakers are an individual choice and you have to hear them for yourself. The problem is that most of the better speakers do not have show rooms where you can go hear them. So since I have not quite yet picked out the speakers to go along with the receiver, I have not jumped on my purchase.
Now this receiver is available on Amazon, which is where I want to buy it. However, it has not been in stock for the past month. Earlier this week, it finally came into stock. However, since I have not yet been able to pick out speakers, I have not ordered it yet. I logged in this morning only to discover it is already out of stock! Needless to say, I am a little frustrated, but I guess I should have just made up my mind about what speaker to get. Just goes to show, if you know what you want, you should just go after it.
