    Sounds like a good buy !

    You would need to check , age, condition etc, as some of them are known to have faults.

    I was one of those considering this sub on eBay. It's currently £129 less than it would cost to buy one new and once you factor in warrantee issues (these aren't the most reliable subs in the world) and shipping costs it doesn't look like this will be such a bargain.

    Just my opinion.

    Mark.

    I always sell my old AV gear on Ebay. You usually get more than the internet price of the newer model. I sold a Sony 940 that was 18 months old (although perfect) for more than I paid for it new and got a brand spanking 1080 for £15 more!

    Buyer beware.

    I thought I'd go to £400 to be honest but by the time I'd decided to do that it had already gone above!

    These aren't listed on the RS site, does anyone know a shop that has stock? I'm 20 miles north of Oxford so please don't tell me they have one in Newcaste!

    Thanks

    You need to contact the mail order department at Richer Sounds to get the Servo 15, I think the number is 020 87434680.

    regarding the controller, if you are lucky they will send you one anyway. When i ordered mine, the guy at RS asked me if i wanted the X30, i said no, paid £525 inc delivery and received the X30 anyways! :)
