Hiya.  I've just recently decided to purchase a receiver and speakers to
create a home theatre for myself.  I've done a fair bit of research, come up
with the particular models I want, checked out the prices at Bay/Bloor Radio
and Future Shop and Best Buy and 2001 Audio/Video and found that the prices
are absolutely outrageous compared to the prices down in the States.  The
speakers I want (Yamaha NS555) are $900 at 2001 A/V, but I check out some of
the online stores in America, and some come to around $400 Canadian (and
that's with taxes, duty and S&H)!  So to my fellow Torontonians, where are
some good electronics stores to check out?  I assume the stores up and down
Yonge Street in the downtown area might have the speakers and the receiver
(Yamaha RX-V750) I want, but are there any others I should check out?
Thanks to all who can help out!

Cool, thanks for the heads up.  Wish they had a catalogue on their website,
rather than just a list of brands.  Gonna check 'em out in a few days when
the weather's a bit better.
cheers,
