    Hi
    I have been building a M&K system made up of Ex-Dem gear and now I have bought most of it I'd thought I'd share what I had found with anyone else who maybe interested. I managed to pick up a pair of 750 MkII (L&R), manufactured in the US, for £299 and a pair of Xenon SR26s for £325. In addition I got a VX860 for £400, which was £100 less than the site has advertised when I rang. Lesson being always ring and let them mention the price first. All of the above came with at least 1 year warranty and I advise to haggle on that as I was offered less than 6 mnths in some cases.

    I do not take any responsibility for the accuracy of any of the links and their contents but it may save you hours of trawling the net and ringing. I would also advise ringing around several of the Sevenoaks staores as they occasionally have other items not on their clearance sites.


    Heres a list of some clearance ex dem sites:

    http://www.audio-excellence.co.uk/?section=brands&id=42
    http://www.audio-t.co.uk/?section=brands&page=brands&id=42
    http://www.hdsound.co.uk/clearance.asp?cid=0&man=M&K&typ=All+Product+Types&page=1&pagesize=20
    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI....m=110217295722&ssPageName=STRK:MEWA:IT&ih=001
    http://www.sevenoakssoundandvision.co.uk/clearance.aspx (note, search page by page as the brand filter seems to mess the search up.)

    In addition, I also found others if you ring the stores :

    http://www.thehomecinemacentre.co.uk/index.html have 3xXenon LCR26 and 3xXenon LCR36 with stands. I was quoted £650 for the 36s with stands.
    http://www.hdsound.co.uk/store.asp?id=57 have a whole set of beech/silver 850s inc sub an a pair of M&K beech stands for £1800(which I would have dearly loved if I hadn't akready purchased some and could have afforded it). They also had a set of Xenon 26s plus sub for just over a grand, I think.
    http://www.audio-images.co.uk/secondview.asp?Second_ID=223 Can't remember the price on these but they are 2nd hand as opposed to Ex-dem. They are not MkII's and I believe are a full 5.1 system

    Finally the guys at http://www.hifigear.co.uk/site/index.php gave me the cheapest quote for NEW Xenon 36s at £860 plus free delivery.

    I've got w8 until my AV room is complete in several weeks to find out if all of my ex dem gear works ok and if my frankenstein M&K system sounds good.

    Anyway, enjoy and I hope that someone finds this useful even only to find replacements for damaged elements in their systems :)
