is that price seems to have a high street price of $4000 in us,so maybe as little as $3500 on amazon,do they expect uk to pay double the amount?

As I am sure you are aware, buying a US made product in the US is always cheaper than buying the same product elsewhere in the world, in just the same way that buying a UK made product in the US is more expensive than the same product in the UK.

Look at the Chevrolet Camaro that retails at $33k in the US but £35k in the UK for the same spec car.

Unfortunately, it is not quite as simple as comparing the US $ price to the UK £ price for any given product. You also need to take into account any local taxes that vary from state to state on products. You then need to look at shipping from the US with sufficient insurance cover should the product be damaged or lost in transit. Then you need to pay import duty once the product arrives in the UK and remember that your warranty is supplied via the dealer that you purchased it from so if you did need any support you would need to arrange to send the unit back to them etc.

The LS-1 purchased in the UK is supported by a local dealer network, with a 2 year UK warranty and is inclusive of VAT currently charged at 20%. Your Runco dealer will also have full access to the ISF menu's for detail calibration and will be able to advise you on recommended screen size, material, gain etc for your room.

The LS-1 delivers superb performance and value for money, I am sure you would be delighted with one.
