1. My first question, Is BOSE soundtouch 120 model going to be discontinued this year ? I heard from one of the Bestbuy rep...
Right now am in Nevada and nearbuy Carson city and Reno - where i dont see the demo/display of the products - which is bad part to make choice.
2. Actually i have one soundtouch 120 purchased last year from Bestbuy ( Dallas Location) and It is awsome, which you have to experience it.
3. Now, Am referrring many reviews and thinking which one to purchase this time, 120 or 130 ( because this is a sound bar and pricing less budget of 899 @ Best buy and aslo have one more 5.1 channel that is 520 @ 1349)
Above all this which one to make a choice to purchase ?
I have known the performance of 120 Its Too good, what i want to expereince is above this i:e 130 and 520
Experts out there ...Hope i Get replies all questions logged above.

Thank you for posting your questions hopefully I can help you answer them, or point you in the correct direction.
Yes we're in the process of not carrying the BOSE Soundtouch 120. Hopefully, in doing so we'll be picking up a different product from their line-up. You never know, just keep checking the website often!
I personally do not have any experience with the Bose® - SoundTouch® 130 Home Theater System - Black or Bose® - SoundTouch® 520 Home Theater System - Black. Have you check out the reviews? Both rate extremely high for reviews on BestBuy.com. Also I always comb through the Q&A sections too while I'm researching my potential purchases.
Bose provided this information publicly in the Question portion regarding the differences between the 120 and 130:
The SoundTouch™ 120 and 130 systems have the same connection and
control capability, as well as the same bass performance. They also ensure
optimal sound performance for your room because they feature the
ADAPTiQ audio calibration system.
The difference is in their soundbars.
The SoundTouch™ 130 system:
• Delivers the highest level of audio performance from a Bose soundbar.
• Soundbar has six transducers and two PhaseGuide® sound radiators, as
well as audio processing and amplification built in to the soundbar.
• Features a slim profile and Flexmount® technology, offering our highest
level of elegance with an unobtrusive profile, whether placed on a
table or mounted to the wall.
The SoundTouch™ 120 system:
• Features a five-transducer array and is in a fixed orientation when wallmounted
or placed on a table.
Please let the community know once you've chosen, and the reason!

Appreciate your kind feedback, Mariah
That was a helpful for me on my plans to buy.
Meantime, I was searching online for couple of models of BOSE - The eye catchy part was as Best buy are selling the 120 at 899 without tax and there is one more seller ( Brandsmart USA) it was shocking to me - they are selling for flat 699 with no shipping and no tax. I wonder and keep on asking myslef how come so the price is difference.
Am not sure if i want to take a chance to buy, addition to that outlet is located most of the Florida/Miami/Georgia locations.
Hope, I will get a convincing answert to it (Smile...) am not sure this post can be helpful to other bloggers/customers.
Looking forward for your support and opinions...Thanks Hava a good day.

Are you looking for a possible price match? Brandsmart USA wouldn't be considered a local competitor in your area since there's not one in your area. Additionally they aren't considered an online competitor either.
I hope you have a great weekend.

If you're serious about possibly purchasing from BrandSmart USA or any other retailer I'd suggest looking into the follow:
Are they an authorized by the manufacturer to sell this product? If they are not the item you purchase may not have a one year (limited) warranty.
Look into their return policy? Please pay special attention to any re-stocking fees, or how one can be performed if need be.
Is the model they are offer are offering the US one, not the EU one? Often times some sites were you see drastic price difference the product may not be the model intended to purchase in the US. I've seen European models are offered .
Sometimes the answers to these questions may not be apparent. You're more than welcome to call Bose to ask if BrandSmart USA is an authorized seller. Or call BrandSmart USA to inquire about the model and their return policies.
Another advantage of purchasing with Best Buy is the option of purchasing an extended warranty through Geek Squad that does cover blown speakers.
