    Hi,

    I have finally decided what to buy for my home cinema setup. I am intending to purchase a Marantz SR6300 receiver and the Mission FS1 speaker package. Now I am looking around at best prices which is another thing. Are Unbeatable and QED electrical decent retailers to buy from? Plus is the amp from these people be like a grey European import or a UK spec machine. I've read a few horror stories about these firms over the past months in this forum.


    Thanks

    Martin

    I used to own an SR6300 - bought it of QED.co.uk and had no problems. Service was good, they had it in stock and delivered on time - though I did place the order by phone so I could confirm all this. The SR6300 from QED was UK stock, not grey import.

    Another place that may be worth a look for feedback on the stores listed is www.ukpricerunner.com

    Not only do they provide comparisons of prices,but they also provide feedback from purchasers....there's a large amount of feedback on both the retailers you mentioned there.

    I have bought from QED.uk. I bought both my amp and speakers from them, apart from a long delivery time tehy were fine, quing on th ephone takes ages but they sorted the out a fault with one of my speakers ok with 3 days left on the warranty!
    I would use them again but i suggest you have a good look at their feedback and decide for yourself.

    Got the amp on Friday from QED. Got a miffed as it was a grey import. Suppose what you pay is what you get.
