    I phoned up their customer services people to check that it is the correct price, its coming up apparently as being £473.99 and she had to confirm the price on their werbsite which is £199.99. They said its first come first served on these Puppies...

    Heres the specs on the pioneer site:

    I couldnt help myself:

    5-disc Home Cinema System
    This full-featured home cinema system has everything you need: a 5-disc DVD/CD/VideoCD carousel with a built-in amplification for the 5 speakers and passive subwoofer for great sound and both Dolby Digital and DTS decoders. The big front satellite speakers provide excellent 2-channel audio reproduction. It sounds great. Looks good too, with a slanted front panel giving the unit a slimmer appearance. The 5-disc carousel allows you to keep 5 discs (DVD, CD or DVD and CD)in one “drawer ”, so that you can enjoy many hours of uninterrupted audio and/or DVD Video entertainment. Centralised function keys on top make this system handy to use when placed in your rack. There is also the added benefit of easy installation thanks to the colour-coded speaker terminals.

    Correct me if im wrong but £199.99 for a 5 disc DVD/CD/CDR/VCD player with 330watt RMS surround sound, with built in Dolby digital/DTS amplification is a steal isnt it?

    Only draw back is its meant to be chunky, but frankly i couldnt care less.

    Just thought id give people the opportunity, and they havent got many i dont think.

    **NOTE**Ordering via the website takes 3 days to process before they dispatch it by the way, However if you oder over the phone it will go through instantly. I ordered over the phone at 4:30pm today, its being dispatched tomorrow and delivered inside of 5 working days. Basically you order tomorrow by phone your only gonna have to wait 1 wkend.

    Have fun lads.
