M&K - no buyers

Seen a couple!! of posts about M&K and also prices in the UK. I thought I would share a message I received concerning the distributor for some European countries.
"
We of ... don't cary M&K anymore... Due to the high prices over in
Europe it was inpossible to sell them.
We have an alternative line namely Definitive Technology.
If you want I can send you info on those."

I am not a Gecko supporter but maybe M&K themselves are pushing the pricing policy, and I was quoted over GBP 900 for a pair of S85's.

I think the distributors should go back to M&K and ensure that they are aware that the pricing policy has put many people off buying (and even selling) this brand, which is a shame.

( PC - can I have my discount now!!)

Just another perspective!

The amusing part about your post is that in UK, Definitive Technology speakers are also distributed by Gecko

I´m sure there are plenty of potential customers...........just not at their inflated prices.:p

Agreed, the kit is excellent and consistent but the prices and ethics at Gecko are ...........questionable. I must admit to being a touch envious of the americans on this one.

I parted with my cash long ago for my M&K's.

I like them alot there's no getting around this, however when I did buy them I was not aware of the price discrepancies between the US and UK. This did annoy me at the time when I found out and I know annoys alot more people out there now.

As a product I can't fault them though.

Does anyone know what distributor prices are like in continental Europe or are Gecko responsible for that too.

Regards

Ian,

Do you happen to know what other products are distributed by Gecko?

A list would be most useful:devil:

is this a gecko thng then, or is it M&K themselves bullying the importers/disrtibutors? i bought a high end m&k system earlier this year and it cost £4k. i am not gonna mention the dealer, but they DID give me discount, albeit a small amount. i think its crap that this happens but its the same with most of the higer end brand isn't it? P.S. as much as i love m&k, i will no longer be buying from them as putting a stop to the powerbuys was going too far:mad:

I'm not sure as they dont have a web site (probably can't afford one :D ) but Runco is certainly one brand. I'm not into projectors but I believe Runco's to be rebadged Barco's with a huge price hike.
