    Or ring the CS number and see what they say.

    I went into a RS (Bromley) a few months ago to see if they had any HT2 bipole things.....they had one pair left and they charged me £19.95 for them.....i then rang the Sevenoaks branch to see if they had any and they did....when i got there he wanted to charge me £49.99 for them...i told him i had just brought some from Bromley for £19.95....he rang them to confirm the price and that is what i ended up paying......
    So i cannot see a prob if you tell them that someone brought a Servo from the Maidstone branch for £399.95 and maybe he should ring them to confirm it.

    I think you need to edit your sig Buns, thought the Servo had arrived? What do you think to it btw?

    I've just ordered a 2nd one, its obscene really but what the hell? - at least my front soundstage will look balanced now:eek:

    It's in the latest issue (October) cut the actual ad. out and don't show them the full page-read it and you'll see why, or pm me. it says brand new boxed, so worth persevering. I've lent my scanner out or I would have sent you the relevant bit but it's obviously worth buying a copy anyway-good luck.

    in the print at the bottom of the page it says 'available from 15sept to 24th oct.' but I've bought a few offers from them in the past and they've never held to those dates-also it looks like others have just bought this sub at this price, see chris 's post above.

    ah right.... ok well hopefully this shouldnt be too much of a problem then...... the concept of doing that is a bit silly..... the prices should be valid from when the mag is published!

    thanks

    When I bought mine from the Leicester store on Thursday the staff were aware of the ad and didn't have a problem with it. Looking at some older magazines I think Richers got the date wrong as they usually date the offers to start about a week before the mag hits the streets and run them for about 6 weeks.

    Now I've had a couple of days with my Servo 15 I'm over the moon with what it can do.

    Just been to RS in Cambridge, paid for my 2nd servo 15 plus 5 years warranty....£419:D

    Now lets hope the bugger turns up! I'm told it should be in the store on Tuesday, the day my M&Ks should be arriving too:clap:

    Looks like I might be in for a busy evening:)

    I asked at my local Richer Sounds yesterday. The assistant looked up the Servo 15 on their computer system and claimed there were 6 of them in their main warehouse and that the price was indeed £399.

    well i got my money..... it just seems odd to me that everyone else is being quoted £399 without prompt and i had to fight! Ah well, all is well that ends well i guess. Thanks for the help
