    Just been to client in london and decided to take a look up tottenham court road, found a shop that has 4 in stock, priced at 350, however, they definately will haggle as he did a price check on a plasma for me.

    yep, if they have them in stock, I thought they were all out, however as I say, you can haggle with these guys anyway. I will check with RS, in about 20 mins when I get off the train as they are next to MK station.

    Been there, lowest he would go was £320. I’d rather wait for RS and save myself £30. Thanks for the info anyway.
    I also tried MK RS and they told me they had none in stock, I’d have taken an open box one if they’d offered it to me.

    Have you seen the "Official Reply" from Yamaha on the Whathifi forum regarding low stock? Seems they are air freighting some in.

    Also anyone ordered one from Superfi and know when they might be getting them in stock?

    Thanks for the heads up Mart, see below. Fingers crossed the plane can actually land in the UK!!

    From Whathifi forum:
    "As there have been a number of threads discussing the difficulty of getting hold of the Award-winning Yamaha AV amps - plus some other receivers - I've got an official update from the company on the stock situation. Here you go:



    "It's been a very good year for Yamaha and yes we have been caught out by
    the demand for AV Amps and Receivers. We are of course delighted with this
    reaction which has meant that we have been able to sell everything we planed
    to sell and much more, but far more quickly than we imagined.

    However to help meet the demand and despite the difficult economic times we
    have been taking the unprecedented decision to air freight products into the
    UK. We are pleased to say that this last weekend saw yet another arrival
    with several hundred extra units of AV Receivers. Amongst the shipment are
    the very popular DSP-AX863SE and DSP-AX763 with more arriving later this
    week, and even then it's simply not enough.

    The only advice we can offer to consumers is to keep in close contact with
    their local Yamaha Retailer. Of course we are not able to comment on an
    individual Dealers ability to supply or what their current back order
    situation maybe with their customers.

    This is a unique experience especially given the difficult economic times
    and recently has only been associated with products such as Playstation and
    Nintendo Wii where simply the demand also out stripped the supply.

    We really thank our customers who have helped Yamaha become the No: 1 in
    demand product for this season. We would also like to re assure them that we
    are working very hard to keep pace with the demand going forward"

    well I only went in there about 3.30 today, give ben a call there and grab an open box one, I would but I have decided on a different model for some extra HDMI inputs. He is a knowledgeable guy and more importantly enthusiastic about AV, unlike any of the others I have spoken to in there.

    The ex display might worth haggling on, particularly as they do not do demos so it hasn't been used, just sat on a shelf.
