ok... so with all the TV talk going on, I've a question. A friend of mine is buying a house and the current owners have a 42" HD ready plasma TV with Yamaha 5.1 surround sound system all wried into the living room

they're willing to rip it all out and take it with them or leave it in for an extra £1500.... is it worth it? I'm sorry I can't provide much more info but what do you guys think?

Let them rip it out. For that sort of money he can get a 50" HDTV LCD (better than plasma) and his own 5.1 surround set.

I agree with Syzable..it's a rip off for second hand electrical goods...I'd offer £500 max if I really liked the kit.
#3
hmmmm, but all wired in? hidden wires? sure, £500 for the electricals, but whats the labour on a decent fitting??
#4
Are they allowed to rip it out as it is wired in? surely it is like light fittings? If they do take it out they would have to pay to make area safe and within safety regulations

very true! i like the way you think!!

that's what he was thinking... i've seen the place, no wires are visible and the apparently the yamaha speaker setup is a high quality one as well.

i get what you're saying, loose electrical wires are a hazard, let alone how unsightly they'll look

£1500 really includes the price for the setup & the convenience of just leaving it there. i'll suggest that he tries to negotiate the price a bit....

Say he doesnt want it because the price is too high and he can get one for £xxx - the owners will probably lower the price to save themselves the hassle!
#7
that's a good idea, actually! they r being a bit petty tho, taking out all the fixed appliances from the kitchen....!?!
#8
Plenty of room for negotiation - the fact they are considering leaving it shows that they intend to buy a new one at their new place and have it all fitted in, they probably don't want to have the old set! The price is a bit steep, it's not that hard to run a few wires under the carpets or through any channels they may have had put into the walls.

Offer £500-£750, no more.Sounds like they want to be rid of it and remember
T.V. specs are always changing, new today old tommorow so what does that make his? :thumbsup:
