I don't know much about the 9525, other than that it has been replaced with the 9527 (Pixel+ with Dolby Surround). The 9607 is an even higher spec model (the same but with Dolby Digital instead). The 9527 is a good choice for Pixel+ if you have separates for audio.
I must say that $2740 does seem very expensive. In the UK you can get the 9607 for as low as £1450 ($2175). If shipping and import tax isn't to high you could get one from here.
I think we're editing/posting at the same time. Try http://uk.pricerunner.com/ and call up some dealers. I don't really have experience of international shipping. Don't some British Depatment stores have branches in the Middle East? e.g. Debenhams, John Lewis, House of Fraser. They may be able to help too.
