    Now that KEF have knocked 25% off the eggs (here), Creative Audio are doing them for £600 with 30m QED Silver Anniversary single wire speaker cable (RRP £165) and a 5m subwoofer lead (RRP £10), so does anybody know if anywhere in London is doing them for £425ish (i.e. without the cable)?

    Not likely, beacause although Creative Audio are giving £175 worth of cable with the system it will not cost them that much for the cable. You couod ask them if they would give you their cost of the cable off the system, which would equate to £80 at the most.

    Previously they were doing the eggs for £800 with about £200 worth of cable and you could find places doing them for £600ish, hence my question. I think they were having to do this due to KEF's pricing policy.

    I bought mine from creative audio, they are good guys. I can't see them them going for that though.
    You could buy them and then sell the cable.

    As I said in my first post I'm in London so Creative is out of the question.

    Note that these are warranted by Play and not Kef. Make of that what you will. :)
