This incedent happened around the end of 2005 at the Home Depot in Portland Maine. Two men driving in a green Mini van stopped along side my car at the home depot in Portland Maine. They said they worked for a High End Theater Company that catered to commercial industry's(i.e.movie theaters ect.)They said that they came to Maine to make a delivery of some high end theater equipment futher up in Bangor,Maine. They looked very profesional and gave me some Company lititure(i.e.panflets,magazines ect.) They claimed that they had brought to many sorround sound units to this delivery(They even showed me some invoice that they had)They claimed they did not want to have to bring the x-tra stock they had back to there company because they had a upcoming vacation and wanted to go to some other state on the way home. They said they would give me a sorround sound unit for 75% off retail. They had flyers showing the retail price and it was even listed on the box. It listed for something like $2295.00(I can get the figure its still on the box.)
Well I gave them $500.00 in cash, When I got it home and hooked it up none of the lights worked and it did not seem like it was any way near a high end product. Although I did use it for a while geussing where the stations were. I finally decided that it was not even worth the room it was taking up on my tables. So I put it back in the box and its been sitting in storage ever since. Untill today when I was messing around on my computer and figured that even though I couldn't contact them via phone when I first bought it.(I did try but could not even find a company let alone a phone number)I would see if I could find something via Internet... The First thing I saw when I punched in Theaterresearch.com was the words "Ripped-Off"
