BUYING, SELLING or TRADING indicates your automatic and mandatory acceptance of HiFiVISION.COM Trading Rules and Guidelines!


Do not blindly trust every seller or buyer! Protect yourself by following the below safe trading tips.

Safety Tips

For Buyers

  1. Always meet the seller at a safe location and inspect the item before purchasing. Following this one rule will help you avoid most scams.
  2. Watch out for unrealistic offers. If it appears too good to be true, it probably is. Unrealistic offers are used to motivate purchasers to make hasty decisions.
  3. Always verify the seller's credentials. Ask the seller to provide a photo ID and proof of address.
  4. Ensure that the product you are buying is not stolen or fake. Always ask for a purchase invoice.
  5. The best way to transact is to collect the item and pay at the same time. Never transfer funds or use a debit/credit/atm card to pay someone you do not know before collecting an item.
  6. Ask for clear information on condition of the item, price, payment and delivery method.
  7. Use only those payment methods that you trust and are familiar with. Never give out your financial information.
  8. It is recommended to purchase items directly from the seller.
  9. Always test the functioning of the item before purchase.
  10. Do your research on comparative prices for the product.

For Sellers

  1. Try to take the full payment at the time of the delivery. Remember to use a safe location to meet.
  2. Watch out for fake currency and money orders. Be aware that banks will not honour fake currency/money order and will hold you responsible for it.
  3. Verify the buyer’s credentials if necessary.
  4. Ensure that your product meets the features you list in your ad to avoid any misunderstanding with the buyer.
  5. It is your responsibility to prove that the product you are selling is genuine and not stolen by providing the necessary proof of purchase.
  6. Do not share your financial information except the one required for payment.

These speakers I have seen and heard at Mr. Kishore’s home in Pune. At the price he is offering it should be a blind buy.
Thanks for the +1, Derek. I have a second home in Goa and have no problem delivering personally on my next trip there, but I would definitely like him to see and hear them first.

Planning on the Marantz PM 6006
Well irrespective of your room size .....

If you have short-listed Marantz brand and planning to buy floorstanders then I recommend either the PM8005 or the new PM8006 bcoz the peak wattage of PM6006 is just 45 watts @ 8 ohms and this power rating is not enough to get the best out of any floorstanders in general, specifically while listening at lower volume levels.

If your planned budget is permitting only PM6006 then I suggest you to look at high-sensitivity bookshelf speakers instead of floorstanders ... Technically it will be a good match and even listening at slightly higher volume level music won't get disintegrated.
You can consider the following bookshelves OR any other brand/model of your liking ...

Hope this helps ... Cheers

Thank you. Appreciate the info. I had the same doubt at the back of my mind.

I would like to get a floorstander since I have a large room now after years of living in tiny rented apartments. Was considering the wharfedale 230 from Hifimart (or something similar in the 50k range).

Could you suggest a budget amp that will do justice to it?

Wharfedale 230s are decent sounding and value for money speakers for it's pricing. Since you are setting it up for the first time at your new home/room, I suggest you stretch you budget and go for a slightly more better speakers for two reasons ...
The primary reason is, speakers are CORE component in any setup followed by the partnering equipment. After setting up a system, even in a short period of time you can do changes/upgrades in your partnering equipment but it should NOT be the speakers unless and until you are ready with the $$$s ;):D
The secondary reason is, you have to be completely satisfied with the product that you are investing keeping in mind that it should stay with you for at least a minimum period of two or more years before think of any upgrade/changes especially when setting up for the first time.

My recommendation ...
Product details: http://us.kef.com/q500
Reviews: http://www.theabsolutesound.com/articles/kef-q500-loudspeaker/
Pricing from the Indian distributor: http://www.profx.com/detailpage?bra...14&Id_detail=176&aclass=2&menu=1&calledFrom=0

Cheers

If you have the budget you can go for brand new one OR any pre-owned amplifiers from any known/genuine sources but keep in mind that to drive floorstanders it is always better to choose an amplifier of minimum 100 watts or anything above that @ 8 ohms per channel.

Thanks for the useful replies. The feedback has made me reconsider the floorstander option. A 100 w amp would blow a substantial hole in my budget.
