Marantz has joined forces with the Chord Company to offer customers a free set of cables worth more than £1000 with every purchase of the NA-11S1 network player. The deal is available from selected UK dealers until 31st August.

The NA-11S1 made its debut at the 2012 High End Show in Munich, before launching in Spring 2013 with a €3999 (£3499) price tag. One of its main features is its ability to support high-resolution audio.

In addition to catering for 192kHz/24-bit audio files, it can also handle 2.8MHz and 5.6MHz DSD files over an asynchronous USB connection from a computer, and features built-in Apple AirPlay.

The £3,500 price put me off

The £3,500 price put me off this network streamer. I've been waiting for it to come down.

Can't help thinking this deal indicates the realistic sale price of the unit is somewhere around £2,750 ... but it's too early to do this as early purchasers will cry about it.

£1,000 worth of Chord Cables ... £400 USB, £450 RCA, £190 power mains cable and a £65 ethernet. PMSL.

Can be found as cheap as 262

Can be found as cheap as 262,222 yen in Japan (equivalent to about 1519.31 pounds), down from its original price of 356,400 yen (around 2064.98 pounds), so given a bit of time I expect there is room for some significant discounts on the price, even in export markets like the UK.
