This thread is intended for Canadian shoppers, looking to purchase speakers.

Inspiration for this thread:
- Since I tend to visit the same websites everyday to check for a deal, I figure I'd share this info to save others time

Limitations of this thread:
- I'm only posting links for speakers that you can buy directly.
- For certain brands like Revel or JBL, most dealers/resellers don't have a page for each speaker model, so they just specify they're a "Revel authorized dealer". See my list of Canadian speaker resellers/dealers.

Items I'm not including:
- Wharfedale Diamond 220 [with Golfing/Soccer Award]. No longer sold in Canada.
- Revel M55XC (Outdoor speaker) [with Golfing/Soccer Award]. Not for traditional 5.1 channel system, but for outdoors.
