ME66/K6 - Found a great price...

While searching the internet, I found a website www.mvpav.com who is offer the ME66/K6, plus the K6C-SM Case all together as a kit for $362.00

By comparison, these three items would cost $407.90 if purchase through B&H ($45.90 more).

The question is... is www.mvpav.com reputable? Has anyone heard of them or had any experience with them?

The price is the cheapest I've found, so I figured maybe it's too good to be true...

Good price but note that it's the K6P. Requires phantom power. If thats not a problem for you then I would go for it.

Regular K6 available also...

I just checked the site again and they offer the K6 (not K6P) for the price I mentioned. They offer both.

The nice thing is, they include a $28 case with the kit, plus a cheaper price on the mic.

Not sure if they're a vendor that can be trusted or not. Just trying to get some idea...

Check their local BBB, that can give an indication if there have been a lot of gripes about them.

ZGC has the combo for $379 and they are REALLY nice people. I have been burned by the "cheaper" guys. You get what you pay for.

They're not cheaper. This guy has posted in the "Support your camera" forum with the same message.

They do sell the mic for $362

But their 2nd day air shipping was $34 compared with B&H's $14. That makes them $2 more expensive.
The ME66/K6 kit come packed in a cheap plastic case and has an unuseable plastic mic stand adapter included with it . It's not worth what is claimed and comes with the mic anyway.
