    I ordered from Peter Tyson too a couple of weeks ago and got a call to say it was out of stock but Denon was saying stock would be delivered the following week.

    They offered a "graded" version saving about £100 which I had noticed on the website. This is apparently a previously repaired and tested set offered with a year's warranty. While the salesman would make no guarantees he said they had sold other models this way but had had no marked additional problems over normal sold items.

    I decided to take a chance and it arrived the next working day as anticipated. Happy with it so far - nothing which makes it obviously used stock.

    I was keen to order from Peter Tyson as their customer service is good but had I noticed it was out of stock on a couple of other sites.

    Same story from superfi, out of stock, expected 9-10 (bizarre as 9th is a Sunday) and then out to dealers for about the 14th.

    Not really on I feel, theres nothing to stop dealers making this obvious at time of sale. To accept an order at the time with no stock and no idea when you are getting new stock is a bit much.

    Just hope its worth the wait :)

    glad you said that, as i was about to cancel with peter tyson and order from them, surely they should say OUT OF STOCK on there websites as waiting 6 weeks is far to much

    Yeh, it seems retailers arent keen to advertise the status of thier stock. Bit sneaky I think, surely its the customers choice to wait or go elsewhere.

    Like you say an email days or weeks after placing an order to say the goods have been delayed isnt really good service.

    Good luck ;)
