I've been asking advice about a DVD player on another thread and, after much deliberation, I decided on the Harman Kardon DVD31, which I've now downgraded to the DVD22 as I've decided I can live without DVD-Audio. So I went looking at prices. All the online retailers in the UK are quoting £300 (bar some piddling number of pennies). But I also found a retailer in Germany quoting (wait for it) 217 Euros. At the current exchange rate, that comes in at £145 - less than half the price! But, even though they'll ship to the UK, you end up getting the German version. I imagine that getting an adapter to make this work with the UK main supply will be dead easy, but I was wondering if there would be any other issues. For example, do Germany and the UK use the same flavours of PAL? And am I going to get stung for miscellaneous taxes and duties if I import from another EU country? If anyone has been down this path, I'd appreciate any advice as to whether the hassles and hidden charges involved make it worthwhile or not.
