    Yeah, just bought a Denon amp and Mission fs2 package last week via the web. First time I have ordered from them, the complete order was delivered within 4 days.

    Empire Direct are great as long as they have what you want in stock, if they don't you are in for a looooooong wait and a real battle to get any meaningful info out of them. Check the stock availability before you buy!

    My mother wanted a Camcorder from them for last Christmas and called to order it.

    They didn't have stock and claimed it would be available "soon" :) once they'd had a delivery from Sony.

    Eventually after they'd received many deliveries (seemingly without any of the Camcorders we were interested in) I called to cancel the order.

    5 days later the camcorder arrived at my parents house.

    We also ordered an accessory kit and asked if it was suitable for use with the Camcorder. They claimed it was but when it arrived we found that the battery wouldn't fit the model we had ordered from them. Duh!

    Not impressed with the stock management or product knowledge. I personally will not ever use them again, but you may have a better experience with them than we did.

    Just bought a VCR this week, arrived two days after the order. Pretty impressive.

    Although I got no information about it being shipped, when it would arrive etc.

    I agree, they are great as long as the item is in stock. I ordered an Amp and DVD from them a while back and got the amp in a couple days but the DVD was out of stock and I just got strung along for ages until I cancelled and got it elsewhere.

    Make sure what you want is in stock.
