Thanks for the info I would like to purchase one in the future is it worth shopping around or are they roughly all the same price from shop to shop.

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.

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)
