    Great job! Only 3 to go!

    Craig, I have to remove my name from the "buy" list because of un-budgeted heating system issues. Sorry everyone and thanks for the work Craig.

    Received a quote. Compared to 2016: same unit pricing, $1.50 increase in shipping, 2 week longer lead time, no discounts 30-40.

    current price is above and if you'd like a case there is a thread for that as well.
    Present price is 228.95 + 19.05 = 248.00. there can be a small variance due to shipping but this is very close and what we have sent in for pre-payment as of now. we are very close to ordering so please let @vcwatkins or myself know quickly

    I'm not parting ways with my 800VA I'm a horder. Kidding I have 3 pair of SDA's so I need it. I will be parting with some original pin blade cables soon once I locate them. If I was woofiepaws I would be making arrangements on Vcwatkins 800VA pronto.

    Besides, I'm selfishly in it to get Such Good Sound (TM)DK from my 4.1tl's. B)
