Home Theater Stores - Should I Shop Online or Offline?

Aug 17, 2007
Buying furniture online is about as controversial as simply shopping on the Internet. Safety issues, stealing identities, and lack of trust has made it a real issue with a certain percentage of consumers. But for home theater stores, it is almost a necessity due to their unique decor and not all of the population being close to a store carrying it.

Local stores can always order it, but that would be the same as shopping online ourself for its purchase - we would still not be able to see it in person before purchasing, for example, the loungers or the popcorn machine. The ability to shop locally would be the ideal answer, as this particular line is new and most people have not heard of it or seen it before in certain isolated areas of our country. However, can they?

The big question is whether such items of home theater stores are in your local stores. Are they available in the furniture stores, in the mall, outlet-shopping malls, or in a nearby large city? If not, checking online for a particular brand of home theater furniture that is eye-catching may give important information where it could be located.

Some stores will deliver free, but it usually has to be within a certain mileage distance. Otherwise, the delivery fee may be pricey. But for those who are interested enough in this line of entertainment, it will not really matter. That just want it but how safely can it be purchased online?

A big example is the Bose manufacturer. Presently, Bose is in the top two positions for best-selling home theater systems for the general public with their 3-2-1 line, with several styles and types available. If a purchase were to be made directly online with the Bose manufacturer for the #1 positioned home theater system, the 3-2-1TM GS Series II DVD Home Entertainment System, we would find it has a base cost of $999.00 with payments as low as $83.25 per month, credit depending.

Express Shipping delivery can be made within two to three days with standard shipping being made from seven to ten days, with prices varying on locations of delivery. It comes in silver or graphite, and has two visible CinemateTM Gemstone speaker arrays - their smallest most powerful 3-2-1TM speakers - with a hideaway Acoustimass module deliver enhanced high quality sound performance.

There are no center or rear speakers, which mean there is no wiring to the back of the room. Its media center is elegant and progressive, with a progressive scan DVD/CD player with AM/FM tuner with a universal remote control to run it all. The module produces low frequencies for all channels with no audible distortion, and can be placed visibly or tucked away.

When purchasing this product, all the above information came from their website, which completely describes the product. In addition, it warns of current dealers, websites, and online auctions which are currently selling Bose products - but are not Bose dealers. If we buy a Bose product from a Bose dealer, it means a genuine Bose product with full warranties. Otherwise, the product could be use, counterfeit or stolen goods, and sold without serial numbers or they have been altered or defaced.

So, purchasing this Bose product needs to come from a local store or the Bose company itself for the above reasons - the Internet is available to people with different levels of honesty and integrity, so it is wise to be extremely careful purchasing from non-Bose manufacturers.
