I've been having a little search around for deals on the marantz tt-15 s1. I've seen it priced at 1500 U.S. dollars, roughly around 965 gbp when converted, but I am struggling to find it in the uk for anywhere near that price. Most of the prices have been around 1500 quid. Which to me, seems a bit expensive.

Id like to give one of these a go, but paying a 500 quid premium is not something I am gonna do.

Anyone know of a place I could get one of these at a more reasonable price.?

any help as always is appreciated.

I was also looking at the Marantz earlier this year and came to the same conclusion. It is very frustrating when products are sold in the UK with such a considerable mark-up. It was a major factor in me deciding to buy a British-made turntable, the Analogue Works TT1.

Good luck with your search.

Another few hours of searching the Internet and I find a dealer in France selling at 1229 euro. Roughly 965 quid. So, I've just sent them a message, I'll see what they come back with..

i found a couple of dealers in the netherlands selling these also, i've had a response from one of them, offering me a unit in a damaged box for 1179 euro, delivered. which is roughly 915 quid. a stone cold bargain compared to uk prices!!!

why is it that these people can offer the same thing as uk dealers, with warranty for 600 quid less??

being a typical yorkshireman, i hate being ripped off. and to be honest, thats exactly what the uk prices seem like.

I'm getting closer to finding an outlet to buy one of these from.

£920.00 delivered, thanks to a weakening euro.

hopefully this time next week I'll have one in my hands.

It has arrived, I've had a quick nosey through the box, everything looks to be there. The platter is a right lump of acrylic. Just one last thing to do, and that's buy a plug adapter, as it has come with a European plug on the motor. Then I'll put it together tomorrow.

Im one happy guy. A tt-15 for £955 delivered. Saving a massive £540 over uk prices.

I'm glad all seems ok
I just googled it, and from the images, looks a nice piece of kit. Great saving too.

Sorry for making everyone wait, but I needed a beer tonight to chill out after a hard days work. Tomorrow, I'll be boring you silly with pics and posts.

But, I don't care. It looks gorgeous.
