    have you checked out the prices on the pure distribution site??!!!

    A pair of K4s (CR1403) is just £372 a pair instead of the £499 they are in the shops!! An MX700 (MPS2810) sub is £1145 inc Vat!! In the shops that is £1600!!

    Is that right?? if so I assume there will be some discounting in the shops to compete with this, otherwise it seams a no brainer where to get them from.

    I also see that MK are selling direct via their site www.mksoundstore.com.
    It makes the uk prices seem a little ridiculous when -if you live in the states- you can get a pair of column surrounds for $804!! Thats £430!!! (www.xe.com).

    3 times cheaper than here!! :rolleyes:

    That $804 price is for a refurb model though. US list is $1200 but still a heck of a lot cheaper than here !

    Also the prices given on the Pure distn site are for the professional M&K models which have always been cheaper than equivalent consumer versions. Not sure why though.

    I have a Pure Distribution price list from a couple of years ago and it is interesting to note that the M&K prices are now some 15% lower than they were which may take account in the drop in value of the dollar.

    If so, it's a shame that importers of other American products haven't followed suit.

    so why on earth do people buy the consumer versions instead of the pro versions?

    The price difference makes obvious to go for the pro versions. It's not as though the domestic range is any better looking even!!

    Some even say the pro models sound better and the pure-distrubution price for a 2510 is £100 less than it was a year ago
