    A tragic comedy?

    Pair is $59k in the US, $22.5k in Japan.

    The pricing around the world makes me believe that Accuphase doesn't really want to sell much outside their domestic market.

    You feel like Accuphase is making you a favour for selling its products to you, but only if you're willing to pay a substantial premium over what the Japanese are paying.

    In the EU the price is roughy the same as in the US. IMO Accuphase gear still represents good value for money compared to other European and US hi-end offerings (most of the time surpasing them in built quality).

    In Japan the value of Accuphase gear is simply extraordinary. I'm actually surprised US and European companies can sell anything in Japan, when they have to compete with Accuphase gear.

    So why not spoil your compatriots.
    My point is...! Is it as good as D'Ag, Soul.., Pass, Vitu.., Dart... & quite a few many more. Around the world, you will pay the piper. In their own country, as Plinius has done, you will pay a discount for fellow countrymen..

    There have been A-100 monos before the A-200.
