Your rebate can buy all American audio like this Outlaw Audio

The Federal Economic Stimulus program checks are in the mail. When you get yours try and be a good consumer and spend it right away. That'll help our economy and remember the checks will do the most good if they're spent on made in America products. One of my favorite high-value, high-end audio brands, Outlaw Audio, would be a good place to start. Its multi-channel home theater power amplifiers are in fact proudly made in the USA. Outlaw sells direct on its website and all of their amps are now on sale--with free FedEx Ground shipping! If you're single and getting the $600 check you might want to pick up the $599 Model 7075. If you're married and lucky enough to get a $1,200 check the $899 Model 7125 would be even better. Hey, it's practically your patriotic duty to buy American audio.
