^^ They have good suggestions, But if you do not live in the united states then you cannot order from Newegg, They only ship if you have an American Credit Card registered to your House with the same shipping address. So Amazon ships to hotels though! (talking from experience)

Without some fancy footwork Rebates don't generally work for oversea customers either.

he says he is going to get the parts from the US and i dont know if that means he is going to US and buying things.....

and here is another review of the z623's-,2817,2368209,00.asp

here is this review on the z506- "When compared to the similar priced ($100) Corsair SP2200's recently reviewed, you lose a lot of audio quality for the sake of a couple extra speakers. Admittedly, this is not too surprising, but I was honestly expecting better with these Z506's. There have been wide-spread issues regarding hiss with other reviews too."
