    Where have you seen it for £760? The cheapest I've found so far is £790 inc VAT & delivery, and not in black either!!!???

    That does seem like a good price doesn't it.

    Don't want to sound all doom and gloom but there seems to be a fair amount of -ve sentiment on here towards that retailer - just do a search and Im sure you'll find stuff. Apparently they are not too interested in after sales support if there are problems.

    Additionally I heard (can anyone confirm this) that they may be grey imports, not UK models.

    I was thinking about buying somewhere reputable for, say, £850 using my barclaycard and then getting them (barclaycard) to refund the difference to the robert whyte price. Apparently barclaycard offer this service for differences of up to £500 wondeing how much proof etc you need.

    Opinions?

    Codethief, could you let us know how it sounds (esp stereo mode), as this is on my shortlist?

    Cheers.
