    i also went to richer sounds today the one in prestwich in manchester to enquire about the 3200, but the manager said he will never get them in due to the prestwich store being so small, and saying people who will buy the 3200 will want a demo but they cant offer them one, so theres no much point in stocking them.i was pretty surprised.does anyone know where you can get the 3200.Im after one now

    hmm.....i seem to remember Richer Sounds used to be happy to order something in on request, usually they'd get it sent over from another store nearby that had it.....

    try emailing Richer Sounds HQ and ask if thats possible.....if they say yes, then go back in to the shop and make the request mentioning you've been told by their Head Office that its ok.....(assuming it is..lol)

    they dont list the 3200 on their UK website so i'm guessing they are not going to be stocking it at all.......unless its something they plan on putting up in the new year....

    as for £800/900, i'd say he had no clue what he was talking about and just pulled a figure out of the air hoping you'd plump for the 1200 on the spot....

    that would make it as/more expensive as the 5200 unless i'm much mistaken..lol

    I just picked one up from Richer Sounds Ealing store for £299. They had it marked up at £399 but I mentioned their ad in What HiFi and he matched the price.

    Guys go easy on me, this is my plan

    As most married guys will know, my budget is limited.

    I bought a Sony KD -32DX150U Trinitron Wega Screen 32 inch about 2 years ago when it first came out, it cost me £1400 back then and apart from being massive it is a great TV.

    Now she has recovered from that expense I am looking to add an amp and speakers, reading what you guys and others say about the STR DA1200ES it looks like this is the one, and with Richer Sounds giving it away at £300 it sounds a bargin.

    My problem really comes down to the speakers, I have looked at Q Acoustics 1010 5.1 system and Sony's sa ve835ed, but both are £500 ish.

    Can you guys either reccomend a cheaper set or tell me if I can get them cheaper.

    Are the KEF KHT1005 any good ?

    Thanks

    http://www.hifisuppliers.com/website/av-speaker-packs/tannoy-efx-5-1.htm

    Try these EFX 5.1 Tannoys. Have set up my system with Sony STRDA1200 (in black) with the black tannoys. V Good sound, discrete(ish) and a pleasant subwoofer with loads of detailed bass.

    £219 inc a free pair of stands

    Good Luck!:smashin:

    That isn't a bad deal, I have purchased the STR-DA1200ES from Richer Sounds at a great cost of £300, then I bought the KEF 2005 at £450 (down from £600) from Sevenoaks Sound and vision. The KEF's come with wall brackets, just need the leads ect now, but for £750 + leads I'm not complaining :clap: But the wife is :oops:
