just decided to visit the forum here and get some up to date info, ended up reading a thread about someone bying an arcam dv89 for £599??!?! i couldnt believe it, checked it out on creative audio and lo and behold an arcam dv89 for £599. now, i purchased this dvd player 11 months ago, and it cost me £1200. am i missing something here? come on arcam, why the sudden drop in price? i bought this player due to its reviews on here, and yes, i know it was a massive investment but i thought i was getting value for my money. i wasnt thinking of selling it on as i spent massive amounts on my av setup and would like to keep it for as long as possible, i havent got time to upgrade a new component every few months and keep track of all the ongoings in the world of av. i bought this player with a secure thought that i am getting something special, something that is worth £1200. now i see what a fool i have been. thanks arcam for suddenly doing a "half-price special" bonanza now after i have spent all my money. its good to see that my pioneer vsx-ax5 held its price as well as keff speakers, even the panny pw6 didnt half in price. i guess if i was planning to sell it on i would have felt gutted twice as much as i am feeling now.
