A colleague of mine (who happens to work and live in the USA) asked for some advice on his first projector. I recommended that with his budget he purchase the Marantz VP 12 S3 (a £9000 projector which you can get here for about £6700 ish) he just called me to say that he has just placed his order for the Marantz with a "free" ceiling mount for an all in shipped price of $7900 !!! thats £4300 including a two year warranty!!! Here that would be knocking on the door of seven grand! Makes you think what the importers and distributors must be making here?
