ACOUSTIC ENERGY AEGO Sound3ar 2.1 Soundbar / Sub System
USD $99.95 USD $479.95 You Save USD $380.00 (79%)

I can find no evidence these ever sold for close to Parts Connection' list prices. Most descriptions show the normal price as about 200 British pounds, so $99 might be a nice discount. But, these were released in 2016 and there is $33 shipping to my U.S. location. It still might be an OK deal but the Parts Connection discount shown seems very misleading, plus seems to lack a headphone jack.

I keep seeing 90 Days free but for me it says $7.99 a month for 3 months then it goes to $12.99, for me I guess it's just a reduced rate.
It's only free if you never subscribe to Amazon Music in the past.

That's why, I had subbed on accident. Basic Amazon Music is noticeably subpar compared to Spotify Premium but Amazon HD could be interesting. FWIW, I have had Tidal a couple times and the difference in quality between it and Spotify didn't justify the price gap. Albeit, my music listening with headphones is usually done via BT from my Note 9 to my ES100 or ZX300 in LDAC. Not taking full advantage utilizing MQA. Rarely do I use my desktop setup. I also stream Spotify in my car though.

I was fortunate enough to never subscribe to Amazon Music or other services; just never felt low bit rate was worth my time. I'm also a Prime member so the deal is especially good if one does a yearly subscription after the trial it gets it down to $10+ per mo after the trial.

I've been listening to several Ultra HD tunes and comparing to Hi-Res tracks I have already acquired from HDtracks on my music server. Jazz at the Pawnshoop, Bon Jovi, Natlie Merchant, James Taylor etc....they are great especially with scrolling lyrics.

Bought one, thanks! I went to check Bowers & Wilkins' website a few days ago to buy them (they'd been listed there for quite some time recertified) and lo and behold, even though it had appeared still in a Google search, the link went to a missing page on B&W's site... so looks like this is the only place now to get them!
Yeah...thought on it for the day and eventually bought one -- too good a deal to pass up! Plus traveling to the UK in a month; so, when in England... :wink:

Seriously though, 2 year warranty, Apt-x, B&W sound. TBH, almost bought a wired set a while ago when I got a chance to listen to them but they were $299 at the time -- like the sound but was saving for some other gear.

That said, for $136 with wireless, think I'll be pretty happy with them. :beerchug:

Besides the HE6SE, Hifiman has another great deal for Andiophiles. It is Ananda-BT. Amazon has it available now.
I love it, the sound of Ananda is so nice. It makes sense to get rid of wires and I can walk everywhere. There are two sellers on the Amazon, be sure to choose Hifiman Official.

Enjoy Amazon Music HD is running a 90 day FREE trial with Hifiman Ananda-BT.

Is $999 the regular price or a discounted price? I guess if you can afford it buy both but if you had to pick one, and I get the BT convenience, but won't HE6se sound significantly better for $100 less?
