    As the title states I believe Arcam are selling the AVR350 and DV137 as a bundle back at the moment, does anyone know what they retail for together?

    Cheers

    There is not a bundle on the AVR350 and DV137, there are however bundles on some of their other kit:

    Arcam AVR300 + DV79: £1755
    Arcam AVR250 + DV79: £1500

    bargain!:thumbsup:

    Whereabouts did you get it from and was that through haggling or just a promo offer?

    Cheers

    1 and a half hours of listening and haggling, spend a couple of weeks in marakech :cool: and hone the haggling skills.

    Yes, it is of course a combination of equipment that Arcam are keen to promote, but there is no special promotional price on the two together. You have to haggle just like the rest of them.

    I recently bought the DV137 + AVR350 + MA RS6 speaker package for £3900 which is more than a £700 discount. If you're thinking of changing your speakers at all in the near future, then you may be better off doing it at the same time so you can drive a harder deal.
    As I understand it, Arcam aren't too keen for dealers to be giving big discounts which aren't pre-approved by themselves and so dealers tend to offer the discount off the speakers to compensate.

    to be honest i'm not too bothered about discount per say, I ws liteally just wondering if Arcam had any promo packs on. As Crusty has stated in previous posts a lasting dealer relationship is more important than £20 here or there. I'd like to know that I can demo something and not feel pressured to buy it and also have good advice as well as all the other facilities a good dealer will offer. The price doesn't just include the goods, it includes all the after sales care and pre sales demo-ing etc (Unless they're just box-shifters - in that case better get the discount stick out hehehe)

    You must have a decent choice in London. I'm in Sheffield and ended up buying from a shop in Castleford as they were willing to make the effort.

    I see, that's a pity. Wish there's a promotion...

    All the Arcam kit here have a 20% at least mark up so I was hoping for a promotional offer.

    Where I live, there's only one dealer and recently I saw the AVR350 for the equivalent of about £1430-ish (adjusted to include tax), and that's meant to be a sale (20% off)!
