As you may all be aware the poor old GBP has taken a beating lately, in particular against the US Dollar. Down from around 2 Dollars to the pound to 1.45

So the pricing in UK doesnt seem quite so bad by comparison at the moment, but there is still some odd pricing going on.

As I understand it the "official" UK price seems to be around 1272

The Slimdevices US price = $1,999.99 which is aprox 1,453.63 ( + tax and duties ) so no bargains there

Now a quick search on the web throws up the following :-

Superfi website :-
http://www.superfi.co.uk/index.cfm/page/moreinfo.cfm/Product_ID/3229
1,076.55

Logitech official website :-
http://www.logitech.com/index.cfm/speakers_audio/wireless_music_systems/&cl=gb,en
1499.00

Amazon website :-
http://www.amazon.co.uk/LOGITECH-Transporter-Network-Music-Player/dp/B0017QN3ZU/ref=pd_rhf_p_t_2
1,726.01

Think I know which one tempts me ...

At 1299 why would you want to? I'm mad but not that mad!

Second hand ones come up from time to time in the region of 800. That's how I got mine.

The Superfi deal is good if you want to go new, however.

Are you suggesting there is some haggling room?

Indeed! I did.
