What about it? You can only pick them up or have them delivered and set up in the Houston, Austin and Dallas area since there are stores in the region. No different than buying from your local audio store and having them deliver and calobrate them in your home.
frankly... i don't know much about it. i just found them on the web recently and it looks like you can fill out a on-line shopping cart with shipping costs, etc. included
so i just figured they would take the order and ship it. but i have no confirmation that this is, in fact, the case.
Didnt mean to come across harsh. B&W has a thing about online distribution. They want the speakers sold through local distributors in the US. There are a few European speakers that have taken that position.
