HSU STF-2 Subwoofer ($349+transport $130=$479(Rs.26824)) where can I get at INDIA and what is the price..

Is it worth to BUY Marantz SR-6006 ($799+transport $130+Stepdown transformer with stabilizer 1.5KVA(approx. Rs.5000)=Rs.57000) at USA..

My major concern is warranty is not applicable to INDIA and electronic devices are unpredictable.. Because here I bought Yamaha RX-V671 and Rx-A710 AV receiver and returned due to hardware Defect.. So I am fearing to buy high cost items (>$200) here...

I am thinking better to buy Marantz SR-5006 100W/ch (Rs.48000) (or) Marantz SR-6005 110W/ch (Rs.42000) in INDIA

Guys can you please share your views, experience and suggestions on AV Receiver and Subwoofer

As far electronic goods are concerned it is always better to buy it from India with warranty.. I agree it is expensive than most other countries...But local warranty is always better when u endup with a defective product...

My vote is for Marantz Receiver any day... Most affordable with clean sound....

For your room size 22X20, Energy take calssic might be very small.. Just my Opinion... You need to go for good bookshelf (or) Floor standing speakers...

Finally i have concluded to buy Marantz SR-6005(40K) AV Receiver at India due to budget...

Also i am looking to buy Definitive ProCinema 800 with ProCinema 1000 subwoofer...Let me know your views...Is it worth compare to Energy Take Classic..

Because Definitive ProCinema 800 cost is around 70K...It is too costly, but i am getting full package(5.1) and existing energy can extend to 7.1...

Please provide your suggestions...:)

Sorry Dude.. Everything I bought at USA
1) Yamaha Rx-A810 => $550
2) Emotiva Xref-10 DSP SW => $399 (big advantage X-Direct=>which allows AV receiver to control the Subwoofer) and I liked very much and this is not earth shattering. But it is delivering awesome bass for music and movie for very less SW volume (Small-Midsize room). All my friends are told awesome bass accuracy, SW quality and depth is good.
3) Energy V-mini 5.0 series=> $600 (Bookshelf=>90.5 DB sensitivity and Center=>93.5 DB sensitivity)
