    Your proclamation that NOBODY can get one for $12,500 was dead wrong as confirmed by my longtime associate accuphase dealer. Nobody needs to see your Canadian Price Sheets. Just make your excuses and run away once your eating crow. How gallant!! LOL

    Not true. AudioCubes price on the E800 is not even 1000 less than what you can get it for here in the states. E800 in Canada can be had for less than 12K. I bought my E800 here in the USA for 12,500. You cant go by MSRP which is a total joke
