Yours does? (In Puerto Rico?)

 

I've been to four locally, and none have one.

Are you on the pacific, central, south east, or north east mad? Maybe that could give me a good hint if mines might have it or not. Hmmm.

Yeah, like I said, I've been to three that had that...Odd, we usually get the short end of the stick in PR when it comes to these kinda things (no Magnolia Best Buys here for instance).

You could call and ask you know... Since you're acting like swinging by to check would be some sort of major ordeal. tongue.gif

Well it's not an ordeal, but the people there are a bit unhelpful and almost tilting on rude last time I was there, but good call. :-)

Oh I agree, first RS I visited (closest) had a jacked security cord on the M-80 that wouldn't unwind, so I couldn't put them on without leaning down awkwardly into the shelf... I asked if someone could fix it or unlock it for a few minutes and they basically brushed me off, not in a very apologetic way either.

The sales reps around the phone section are obnoxiously pushy too, and always hovering around the door (something I was taught not to do when I worked retail).

I was actually walking OUT (not even in) of the store during the summer, holding an EVO LTE that had come out a month earlier (and they sell it themselves so they should know this), and the sales rep goes "hey chief, wanna upgrade that phone?". Seriously? It's a small miracle if that guy scores any sales whatsoever.

Wow, that is a bit abrasive. I am not a bit curious as to what he would have wanted to you to upgrade. Most of time I walk they almost bum rush you to see why you came in really. :/

I have been there buying resistors and had them try to force a phone down my throat. I. said that iI would never return if it didn't stop. I dealt with the manager once, who explained that it comes from corporate. I always deal with him now, he's more of the old radio Shack, that wants to help you build stuff.

I'm in the southwest.  Ratshack people are always kind and helpful, if a little dumb on occasion around here.  I rarely stop by, usually only for parts to repair something.

post #3731 of 4435

I guess I will call then and see, unless their site will tell me? Thanks.

Anywhere besides RS that carries the M-10 in store to try? 

post #3733 of 4435

I went to the RS near me today and it wasn't as bad as before. They surprisingly did have the M-80 on the floor, and they only carry the black and red, and the LP in black and white only. Got a pair to try out and see how I like them.

Hey joker, any plans to review the K618Dj (or K619 - mic version)? Or even the K67? (Tiesto branded version, possibly tuned differently) Came across them recently but there's not a lot of comparisons out there, they look like an interesting update to the old K518, not sure it's worth the price premium tho, since at this point the K518LE are like half as much on Amazon...

I don't know what a tiesto is, but the K67 is pretty, as is the K619!

 

AKG makes some of the best looking cans around (in my humble opinion)
