    If I'm not mistaken, Luxman dropped prices on their top line gear about 25% when they went from an independent US distributor to company-owned US distribution several years ago. That said, I think I'm also hearing that Accuphase's US distributor may charge a higher markup than Accuphase distributors in other geos (?).

    Correct GSOphile. The main factor is the US importer's approach to business.

    Re: Accuphase E-800

    I honestly donít know the details but if what mentioned is true, this US Accuphase distributor is solely responsible for preventing many interested parties to enjoy the Accuphase gears in the US.

    Iím not sure what his or her calculation shows, in terms of comparison between less quantity with super high margin vs. more quantity with lower margin. But decision to go that route is an insult from consumer point of view.

    Maybe, some of you will say to me that I have no idea what Iím talking about, which is true. But Iím waiting to be enlightened.

    The details (pricing) are right on the internet for anybody to see. Here is the link to Audio Union in Japan https://translate.google.com/transla...p/&prev=search Just convert YEN to USD.

    I guess if you are loyal to brand, price is not relevant. I've owned a couple of Accuphase intreated amps - nice gear, well built. I prefer Luxman and think it offers better value.
    This is the same Dealer that banned me for raising issue with the fact the Axiss ships all Accuphase gear by Ground Service, that is a slap in the face when paying this kind of money. Its also true that Accuphase NEVER made any power cables... they were all knockoffs, yet he was selling them proudly.

    Another question is why Accuphase is okay with this?

    Why should that dealer remain "nameless" considering we all know who it is (At least to those that are members here and also that "other" forum, of which there are quite a few) and although there has been mention of a sell-out, never a peep about a price increase. Not sure why you would have a price increase when it just came on the market.
    Just to keep a perspective there are many examples of high-end integrated amps selling for far more than 21k. So,really no big deal here.
