Hi,

In Hong Kong/Singapore, Marantz CD Player 6002 is available at £135, half of the UK published price of £270. Still much lower than what Richer Sounds is offering at £199.

So at this low price of £135, would you give this product six stars, if you could exceed your limit of 5 stars?

Perhaps yes. Since this magazine had given such a compliment to Azur 640C and 540C some time ago, I was wondering whether this product would also qualify for such or a similar compliment given the low price in Asian markets.

BTW, I own 640C version 1 and live in India and have recently started reading the local version of your magazine.

Would it be the same player available in the UK? It's often said that the UK market is different and maufacturers taylor their audio products accordingly. Not sure, but would think the CD player available in HK is different from the player available in Richer Sounds??

I don't think that UK market is served with a different CD player. This CD player is manufactured in China and from the pictures posted in both UK and Asian markets, they look same (front and back) and have same specifications.

Maybe some video products have different outputs in the backside (such as scart to serve specific UK/European markets).

Same model number, I'm sure it's the same player. Everyone knows that goods in the US and Middle East/Asia are much cheaper than they are in the UK, often half the price. It just goes to show how good these items really are if they can get such good reviews at twice the price. Then again, it also goes to emphasise just how much of a rip-off the UK is!

I purchased a CD 6002 from richersounds and i noticed the power cord it is a euro type connector and these have been fitted with a UK Style plug adaptor. Also when you buy marantz equipment in the uk the boxes are opened and resealed when they have these UK Plug adaptors fitted. So it seems there is no difference in product.

Marantz is not make in UK so importer need to pay import tax, shipping cost etc etc.

I remember try to sell a pair of Thiel speakers which rrp in UK at £4,000 and one of the potential buyer said he saw the rrp for the same pair in USA for $4,000 (about £2,000) so I told him to fly over there and buy a pair!

You must be realistic guys! Naim which made in England are cheaper here than anywhere else! The SuperNait cost ?4,000 in many EU country! A pair of, again British Made, ProAc cost nearly twice as much in Thailand.

Exceptions to every rule Thaiman. You won't find many examples of goods that cost less in the UK than elsewhere - even items made in this country! :-/

Let me also add here that Hong Kong and Singapore are also expensive cities to live.

But my original post was more about the great value of this CD player at such a low price in Asia.

Are there any other competitive CD players available at this price?
