    After months of browsing i have decided on the Pioneer 506XDE, the B&W mt30 and the Yamaha 2600 amp. Has anyone had any joy price matching the 506XDE as Ive been quoted £3795 from JL. And are all their stores different in price matching.

    Any help would be great.

    They don't sell the XDE models only the cheaper FDE.

    Whilst casting about trying to find a Sony KDF-E50A12 LCD back projector I came across this:

    http://www.woolworths.co.uk/ww_p2/product/index.jhtml?pid=50502915

    and they are currently running an TV ad campaign which claims they will be having an extra 10% discount across the board, both in store and website, over the weekend. I know its an unusual source but maybe worth a look on Saturday if it gets the price down below £3200.

    I hope this is the correct model and is of use, apologies if not.

    Tony,
    See Chewbacca's thread.
    JL will match 506XDE. I had it price matched @ 3299 with krishav.co.uk, who have store.
    I went for 436 in the end though

    I might be wrong but does PDP-434HDE doubt the posters who have managed a pricematch on XDE's.

    Ive already stated that JL couldn't offer me a 436 XDE to replace my faulty 434 HDE as "THEY DON'T SELL IT". I'm just trying to gather evidence so that I can approach my local friendly JL person to say "funny that, seem like JL in X, Y and Z sell it!?"

    Not that I don't believe you guys. Honest.

    Which JL are you dealing with.I was told by Sheffield and Cheadle that although they will not be stocking it,it is on the system available to order direct from the factory.The screen has been ordered for me and agreed the price match 2 days after ordering first at Sheffield who then passed it on to Cheadle.

    Do JL Glasgow deliver to Manchester?

    I can only re-iterate what they told me: they don't sell the XDE model, so I got a partial refund. However, the more I hear of people getting XDEs from JL, the more this irks me, as under their 5 year guarantee, I should have been offered an equivalent model (was offered 436 FDE or PV500). I've now lost a fair bit of cash thanks to JL!

    No but the pricematch included delivery.Now Cheadle were being a***holes at the time so I completed the deal with Glasgow.Not sure if your aware but JL dont usually have stock in store,its all at the Milton Keynes warehouse so I arranged with Glasgow to send it to Cheadle and let them deliver it.Glasgow was more than helpful with me and Cheadle was a bit ****** that they had had to deliver 'another stores sale' but they had to oblige.

    I must say dealing with Cheadle this time has been much easier.

    So, are you saying that JL in Glasgow do actually sell the 436 XDE?

    Just to let you know:

    John Lewis Welwyn Garden City have a 436XDE on display
    John Lewis High Wycombe have a 436FDE on display

    That should put paid to the argument that they do not stock them.

    gateway2k - £2795 – That’s with speakers (Side) and stand.

    dali1020 – I’ve got until I paid for it to find someone selling it cheaper you also get a small period of time after you have paid for it and they will still price match it. No plan of attack just going to keep asking when/if I find it cheaper. Not sure this is going to be likely this time of year but I need a TV. old one when up in smoke. Even if I can’t find it cheaper I still think the price is ok with five year insurance (just add this when comparing prices and it will look as if you have got a bargain) I’m very surprised John lewis don’t give this a value in some way as it would stop us price matching.

    Good luck.

    Early days dali1020 but I'm well pleased with it.A huge improvement over my dodgy Sony its replaced.Ive fitted the side speakers with a gap down the side which looks great against my light coloured walls.
