Random Pioneer question

Hi,
Am gonna buy a Pioneer NS-DV99. Just had a look on their website and noticed they're running a promotion where I get 3 free dvd-audio discs with the system.. Trouble is that Richer Sounds don't have the leaflets necessary to send off for the discs..
Does anyone know if I would be able to send off for a leaflet? Or just send the receipt with a letter?

Thanks in advance.. :)

I bought a pioneer dv-99 the other week from richer sounds, it’s a great system and it runs totally silent however long you use it for, because the amp is in sub woofer.

I purchased it from Richer sounds and I was impressed, although I had to drive 40 miles to a store with stock, because the week after I bought it they dropped the web price by £20 and I went back to my local store and they refunded me the cash.

And now you say I can get some free dvd’s, who do I contact for this leaflet.

hi,
the number for pioneer is 01753 789500 and the promotion is from the 10th Jan to the 29th of Feb. just explain they didn't have any leaflets and they should post one to you. did you say richer sounds will price match their web price? they've quoted me £399 for the multi region when its £373 on the web.

When I bought a jvc home cinema system they matched their web price, the guy just took my word for it didn’t even check ! But I took it back because of the noisy fan.

I paid 399 for the dv-99 then noticed on web last week they had dropped price to 382.95 so got money back. The offer on money back last two weeks apparently, so wont get any more cash back now.

Get Billion Dollar Babies. That's Alice Cooper the group not the 80's c*ck rock solo artist.
The drummer, Neal Smith, is one of my drumming heroes. Damn good album that one.

Please let us know how you get on with the DVD-A's as I'm hoping to buy a Pioneer NS-DV1000 before the end of the month and I'll hopefully get the same offer you did.

Cheers.

What Hi-Fi sound and vision reckoned the Dv99 Was better than the DV1000 you could buy a lot of DVD's and DVD-A;s with the few 100 quid difference

Better sounding or better value for money?

I must admit the flat panel speakers of the DV990 are attractive but the base unit is ugly in a 'kidding-on-it's-classy-Sony-stylee-white".

Besides the DV1000 can be found at seriously discounted price online, just a little more than the RRP of it's cheaper sibling.

Beter sounding they said check out the 99 before you go for the1000 they would choose the 99 the1000 sub lets it down. What about the 990 its got even slimmer speakers and they are NXT
