Non at the moment, I first get the money then shop. I don't believe in shopping for something you can pay for.
Wrong strategy I believe in trailing something I intend TO BUY long before I get it sometimes upto a year I monitor reviews from owners, track prices deals and offers, watch youtube videos, read magazines about it etc that way when the item gets home I have already familiarized myself with it I even download and print the specifications sheet and user manual ! for instance I spent over a year researching on my gaming PC when the components arrived I had such easy time assembling it that you could think am an expert assembler having said that am unleashing mine hii April cc @123tokambio

Why should I duplicate what you are already doing. When the time comes, I will just ask you what's the latest.

Been eyeing Sony str dh550 for a while now... Been thinking of starting small, maybe with a 2.1 setup first with some decent bookshelves then upgrade to 5.1 with the addition of floor standings aba center. Problem is the receivers sold in the US are cheap but rated at 110-120v which is incompatible with ours here. Then there's shipping which would almost double the cost. Kuna ujanja mnaeza saidia villager? What do you guys think of the Sony str dh550?

Epukana na matatizo ya 110/120v. I was lucky the guys at electrohub.co.ke actually imported for me. I paid part of the cost prior, and cleared the balance upon collection. Speaker build hiyo hainanga haraka, I began with 2.1 as well and bought the rest pole pole.

Been doing this and concluded I'd rather buy a complete set up with upgradeable options

When it comes to home theatre, TVs. To avoid compatibility just ship from UK not US
