Hi,

My 1st post in this wonderful forum I need some guidance from all of you specially who are from Kolkata.

I am putting up an audio HIFI showroom in Kolkata.The brands which I wish to showcase are not those easily available ones like Sony,Panasonic or an Onkyo.I am interested in stuff which are exclusive but has a market for both low ends as well as high end.

Products where I wish to invest in are:
Amplifiers/Home Theatre
Stereo Amps
Receivers
Tuners
Speakers

Can you friends guide me as which are the brands which I should go for dealership in Kolkata which should honour the following:

1)Should be exclusive so that its not easily available in Kolkata

2)Should be compatible with each other in terms of mix and match of different audio components.

Please suggest.

Well, although I haven't explored the market here in depth, I have a feeling there's a lot of brands that have minimal to no representation. Some dealers do have tie ups with multiple brands, but do not stock items.

You may consider Monitor Audio, Mission, Usher, PSB, B&W, Klipsch (both under onkyoindia iirc), Rotel, Musical Fidelity, Dynaudio, Krell, Primare ... Blah blah blah ... It sure is a long list.

You must have done some indepth analysis. Do you have any shortlist to start with?

Hi. Who stocks MA?
I think SKS stocks Dyn. But they also do CA, NAD, DALI, MS, QUAD, Epos, Wharf. Marantz and Jamo are handled by Cinebels. Yamaha by Nippon enterprises.
Haven't come across HK, JBL, Tannoy.

Are Cinebels & Nippon existing dealers in Kolkata?

I've heard Cinebels = shop 21 e-mall, chandni. They apparently stock Jamo, Marantz.

Savoy Electronics Mumbai refers to Nippon for any Yam queries. But I don't think Nippon has a showroom.

I think you are at a wrong place. We are music and/or equipment lovers and I believe most of us don't know much about import, export, excise , this tax and that duty. And even if any forum member is professionaly qualified for such consultancy s/he won't be doing it for free and that too on a public forum like this.

Why not check with some tax consultant , I am sure in your city (or for that matter even a district or taluk places all across the country) there are tons of professionals more knowledgable and competent enough to provide (paid) advice on tax ,company laws and other legal matters.

We are the importers & all over India distributors for many HiFi AV Products, so the duty/tax/excise is our day to day work...
