You can be peaceful on buying form your home town with known vendor.. If any problem it is better to take the local help. Buying electronic goods is again a luck as like getting different panels indicated in other forums for Plasma
Today, I went to Hamsaveni Electronics and ordered an Onkyo HT-S3200. The price was Rs.22000. I think it is the cheapest price for 3200 in chennai. The package is getting delivered this thursday. So I am waiting with my fingers crossed.
The owner of Hamsaveni Electronics helped me have a demo of both 3200 and 5205. The price for 5205 was Rs.30000. Though 5205, which had active sub sounded just a little better than 3200, It was not good enough for that extra Rs.8000, so I went for 3200.
The customer care at Hamsaveni Electronics was also very good. When I asked for a Co-axial cable, they said they don't have it, but still, the owner(Mr. Sudharsanan) was kind enough to say that he will get it for me from other shops and send it along with the HTB bundle.
