Does anyone know this seller?

I'm interested in getting some KEF R300 speakers and the problem is there aren't a lot of locations that deal in KEF speakers. On their official site they only seem to list 3 online retailers, all of which either have very few choices or at most, just sell the Q series. The price difference between that site and the official site is $500 and I can't seem to find much information on them other than maybe 2 reviews saying that their service was fine and another review saying they got their product DOA and they wouldn't accept a return. Two reviews is practically nothing but from those two, it seems like they do have and ship the product out in new condition so maybe not a "complete" scam but that aside, I was wondering what their service is like. $500 is a big difference which makes me very iffy about them. I'm not too worried about perfectly working speakers dying after use but I'm more worried about them arriving DOA with a seller that won't do anything about it. It's a long shot but if anyone has heard anything about this site, it'd be greatly appreciated. If I can't get any kind of clear answer then I'll most likely wait to get enough and order from KEF directly.

looks like nothing special other than they specialize in in-wall speakers.

make your post more legible by not having a wall of text.

shoot an email about your concerns or ask a local retail shop about the brand whether or not they've heard of them. its always good to get a second opinion.

Well obviously there's nothing special about them aside from being essentially the only other location that has the thing I want. Not too many options in that sector.
Overall I don't see what's wrong with how I wrote it. In terms of word usage, it's a very short paragraph and there are plenty of long posts with longer walls that goes unmentioned. For instance, that's hard to read but if I had 10 paragraphs of similar or longer lengths but that'd be more legible than one? It's all in perception and I think some people are so used to reading short spurts of information online and don't often read articles or books. As long as it's not a grammar horror situation or a paragraph that's just essentially one really long run on sentence, then I don't see how it would be difficult to read. It's not like it's 100 lines of words. And for that last bit, I'm very confused about your links. What do they have to do with this? I'm not looking to buy the m500 headphones so I apologize but that just went over my head completely. It seems like you're giving advice based on me not knowing the company KEF. I know KEF has a long history and they themselves are reputable. My question was about the reseller that isn't authorized on KEF's site.

Would that be the full 5.1 setup or are you just interested in a 2.0 setup (ie just the front L/R speakers)?

Either way, I'm sure any brick and mortar high end audio dealer that reps fro KEF would be glad to ship them, perhaps even on a trial basis.

Right now I have the KEF Q300 dual amped from a 7.1 receiver along with a subwoofer. In short, I'm running 2.1 right now. I'm merely interested in a bit of an upgrade to the R300. I'm thinking of dual amping those as the front two speakers then moving the Q300 to the back to possibly do 4.1. The main problem is that there seems to be only one brick and mortar store in the US (This is according to their website) and it's quite far away in a different state. There seems to be one in Canada as well but most of them are in continental Europe. I was mainly asking because that site has it for quite a lower price. With that kind of price, my main concern is if something goes wrong which is why I'm asking if anyone knows anything. Without a discount, the brick and mortar stores will be essentially the same as ordering from KEF since it'll be the same price but with the warranty. As of right now, I'm leaning towards not buying it from that site because I've sent them an email with my concern and it hasn't been replied to as of yet.
