    In shops the prices are only likely to vary by a small amount, but online they can be vastly different.
    I bought the Marantz RC9200 as I prefered the extra hard buttons that this remote has. In the shops they were generaly around £700 - £750, but I got mine online for £600. I could have (subject to availability) got a refurbished ex-demo unit for £500, but none were available at the time so got a brand new one.
    I can't remember off hand where I bought it from but found the cheapest price by searching the internet via Google.

    Mark.

    Remember though that the Marantz RC9200 only has a 256 colour screen. Also, the new 9400 will be out in a couple of months meaning you could wait and either get a better remote or the 9200 for less money.

    Build quality on the Marantz is, IMO, better than the Philips but I am delighted with my TSU7000. Just remember it doesn't actually do anymore than the TSU3000/RU950 but the screen is nice.

    I sometimes wish I didn't hanker after the latest and greatest all the time :) It's costing me a fortune :(

    What is the 9300? Not seen that one. We are talking remote controls here not Marantz amps or receivers (their naming convention leaves a lot to be desired)
