Angry CDPRO2 at diy-high-end.com

I wrote this message only for warning to all people.

If you have thinking about buying a CDPRO2 unit at http://www.diy-high-end.com/, you should be aware of how hard is to get it.

Last month of may, I made an order to Nico Thevissen, and he was very fast getting money and send me the invoice. When I was pay, all was another story completely different. E-mais was not responsed any more, and Nico T. only was by phone.

Time was gone, and every telephone call, I get an “…next week I send the parcel…” but none was sent. It was dozens of e-mails, telephone calls, etc.

Five months later, the packet arrived at home, but one more time I was boring by the facts: Remote Control Unit was missing.

Finally, I have no doubt, this is the worst experience I have had in this business. If you are thinking about CDPRO, please, you should be aware of this.

regards,

Luis.

The guy is definitely giving on-line shopping a very bad reputation and he should be fined / jailed! But, who is to regulate this? It's bloody mayhem out there....

Thanks LuisMCP for the warning - always consider ordering the parts straight from the relevant manufacturers, it is much cheaper + you'll get them for sure!

...and if you are modifying / designing for some extra cash on a side, the mark-up stays in your pocket

Hi Boky,

who is a "relevant manufacturer" for CDPRO2 ?

Maybe Daisy Laser ? (http://www.daisy-laser.com/)

hasta luego,

luis.

You can get the PRO2 mechanism at even better price from Service Departments, usually authorized Phillips CD Player repairers, but they do not have to be authorised. It is worth a try...
