    I'd also like that Denon CD player that is also an SACD player.

    If you mean the Denon DVD player that is also an SACD player then I wouldn't bother. I had a 3910 and didn't like it at all. Inoffensive but boring. YMMV!

    LOL, yeah, understand what you are saying. I just gave up on Spendor S3/5R2's due to the fact to my ears that they were just so lifeless. Gotta be careful though that dynamic and exciting doesn't result in hard and aggressive.

    Would you entertain a dealer that seems to know nothing about a product he sells? I just enquired about how many Rack spaces a certain Mixing console takes up, for the dealer to say its not rack mountable. I know full well it is and that the brackets are 100% included with the products..

    Andre, you've gotta wonder. Can't be bothered or doesn't have any knowledge of the products..?

    Take your pick I guess.

    I visited Gear4Music in York the year before last to buy a Tascam 24 track but came away with nothing because basically they had nothing of that sort on display. Given the hype that friends had bestowed on the place I was really disappointed. Another notch on the bedpost for ordering online and saving the fuel. A bit of a bugger though if you want to play before you buy.

    As a mail order company i always use Gear4music for studio gear, they have always been cheap and excellent service. Didnt know they had shops!

    I remember posting about this company a good few years back, might possibly have been in the Wam it’s so long ago.
    Stayed overnight in York having visited a possible choice of schools for one of my offsprings, and had a day in York, and came across this dealership. At the time I was looking for a quality integrated amp.

    Went in, 2 members of staff I recall, they totally ignored this ‘intrusion’ in their shop, give them time I thought, the phone went, one of them answered it, and began his lengthy conversation.

    I continued to browse, and continued, and continued, no acknowledgement of my presence at all!

    I left, making a mental note to never bother doing business with them if I’m seemingly a pain in the arse to them.

    Fanthorpes are an excellent dealer, dealt with them several times.

    I've recently had a very good online experience with Hyperfi, bought a Bstock Denon soundbar, Bstock in this instance meant the packaging was a bit pants, good coms before I bought, saved 85 over all other dealers and great coms after I got it and was stuck with TV settings for ARC connection, Bobby dazzler
