Been following with a chennai dealer since last few weeks for a deal on a rotel amp and pre. He was very happy to send it over at my risk, wont take any evaluation risk, so I said alright, if I have a frd in chennai, atleast then its ok to have a look at it, he said yes no issues. So I spoke to Venkat and told the dealer abt this. After that day, suddenly the guy has developed chicken feet. Now for the last 3 weeks he has been giving various reasons for not being able to show it to Venkat. Its so one sided to deal with them. They want you to take all the risk.
I can personally vouch for hifipal4all (Ramesh) on these forums. He always has interesting equipment, decent prices and he's a great guy to interact with as well.
