    Very good deal, best yet I think. If you were to buy it 'retail' from a shop you'd be lucky to get it for anything less than £800. Buying Yamaha from Germany is very good in my books.

    Hi there,

    Just read this thread today.

    Could you confirm if you received a UK plug and if it is covered by warranty ?

    Thanks

    You get a euro plug, but as its a detachable pc style plug it can be swapped with a standard uk plug. It also alows you to buy an expensive 'audiophile' cable too, if that would take your fancy.

    You could also get a euro->uk converter plug thing, if you feel you need to use the supplied plug.

    Yamaha UK are happy to accept the warranty where ever it was bought in Europe.

    So it's one of those three pin 'kettle' leads ?

    Yea thats the one. The only difference is the plug/socket end, which is euro 2 pin but it is easy to swap it over for any other 'kettle lead'. Might want to check the fuse if you use another one, although i think i've got a 13amp in mine and its working ok.

    And one more thing.

    Do these guys accept orders over the phone ?

    I couldn't find obvious contact details and do not feel comfortable buying stuff written in 'hirdy-girdy-birdy'

    Hi,do a search plenty on buying from Germany(especially wasabi's good work,there was a post in this forum section not long ago)it even say's in 2500 manual on front page to cut plug off if in UK(use a computer main's lead if you want to)I bought mine from technikdirekt.de for a bit more than this(a while ago thou)Top grade company cheap to phone them( ie in EEC)also speak good english.And take credit card if that's the way you want to pay for it(cc payment a bit rare in German web shop's)I think they are now selling Yamaha2500 for about £500 + about £15 P&P (cost about 2.75% CC charge with your bank for buying abroad)I fitted a 5amp Fuse.

    How did you get that price? The site that you put a link to, is advertising that receiver for 798 Euros which is over £540 by itself!

    Most of those sites change their prices every so often, you just have to keep checking back. I got my RX-V1500 from hificomponents.de for £384 incl delivery and a £14 bank charge, the receiver itself was £340, whereas now it's £410 just for the receiver (still a great price though.)

    Hi,ya right price up again!!!but they are a company you will get some service from.Easy to phone etc and one of few German company's that take Credit Card's.(if it make's you feel more secure).There are cheaper like 'hificomponents'(technik won't price match these,but ya can try)but if anything go'es wrong you should be OK.However most people seem to have been OK with the German web shop's,check past thread's.See Wasabi's post(star man)and use the German search engine's.

    How does c.o.d. work on deliveries from Germany? Can you pay by credit card or do you have to hand over cash or a cheque?

    Thanks

    Rezillo,

    COD, means that you pay cash on delivery, to the delivery guy.

    Very effective way, thats the way I paid when I bought my pj from Germany.

    Thanks Wasabi - I was wondering if there was the option to pay the delivery guy by credit card but apparently not. I guess I'll have to find a German supplier that is both cheap and takes credit cards online.

    the guy was also selling on ebay so could be worth a look on the german ebay as well as stuff is cheaper on there than ours...
    same for all other ebays i allways check what they have them on on the us site etc..
    but that was the price £508 on the door cash...and its excellent!!
