    Didn't china club go bust like 2 years ago?
    At least that's what happened to them in Tuen Mun and Yuen long.
    And the customer service in TM was shite, to put it mildly.

    You could walk into the shop holding 200.000HKD in one hand and a sign that says "i want to spend!" in the other, and still be completely ignored by the staff.

    And if you managed to get their attention (presumably by punching one of them in the kidney or similar) there was always an up sell speech given, no matter what.
    If you came there to buy a battery for your watch they would try to sell you one for a car instead.

    But in all fairness they where cheap.........in all aspects of the word.

    I bought some of my gear here:

    Home Theatre Pro Shop
    2/F Grancastle Commercial Centre
    2T Sai Yeung Choi Street South,
    Mong Kok.
    ph 2388 9394

    Lots of other specialist audio - video retailers in the same building also, and definitely one of the most price competitive for mid range to high end gear.

    Serious gear But mostly non user friendly, so if you have difficulty programing the timer on your DVD recorder, might want to consider that... Gear thats badly set up, won't sound good, no matter how much bunny money you throw at it.

    Make sure you get some on site specialist advice, Lawrence Lau is very good, I forget the name of his family's av store in Sham Shui Po, but if i can find his card I'll post his details, excellent to be honest, and a well respected McIntosh Audio dealer, he's Crestron and THX certified too..

    I went to China club yesterday in Mong Kok, just to take a look.
    Indeed they havent gone bust (there) but the staff was just as useless as the one in Tuen Mun.
    One guy was lying in a sofa watching a movie and didn't even bother to look as if he cared that there was customers in the shop, and the others im not really sure which of the 5 ppl in there actually worked in the shop.

    Only one of the people in the shop noticed us, and he asked my friend to make sure his bag doesn't scratch the piano finish on the speakers, i managed to hold back an urge to slap him.

    It always surprises me that shops like this don't tank faster.

    I used to like China club some 5 years ago, when they had the small glass box shop in Tuen mun, prior to moving down opposite to where Gome is now. after that move they it all went downhill.
    And every visit to china club after that has been a major disappointment.
