Posted by Len | No Comments on Turning up the volume on Christmas Specials

The number of specials on offer at the moment continues to balloon. Only a couple of weeks ago we listed what was on offer at the time, but this has expanded so rapidly that it warrants a recap.

I don’t recall a Christmas period when so many wholesalers were falling over themselves with specials and promotions leading up to the festive season. If you were looking for a great deal, this is your opportunity.

Yamaha – the two big ones.

  • One of the best kept secrets in this industry is Yamaha’s ‘A-S’ series of integrated amplifiers and ‘S’ series of CD players. The build quality of these is exceptional, and the performance first rate. We have a limited number of all models with specific side panel colours at heavily discounted prices.
  • AS1100 RRP:$2,599                          Sell: $1,699
  • AS2100 RRP:$3,999                         Sell: $2,499
