    Re: Accuphase E-800

    From the FAQ Section of Audio Cubes

    Are products carried by AudioCubes Japanese models (100V)? Will I be able to operate them?
    This question is often asked by customers so please please note the answer: YES.
    All items requiring the use of electricity will come with a high-end matching Japan-made transformer, free with your order. There has been no report from our customers with sound degradation nor short-term/long-term issues affecting your equipment. Some products may be able to configured to operate in your local voltage. Please see the product page for availability and information.

    With all due respect that's completely inaccurate. The Grey Market models sell USED here in the USA for slightly less than what they cost Brand New in Japan. My friend in Jersey has dumped numerous ones on EBAY when new models comes out. Last one I remember him selling on EBAY was a E-600 and he got 4500 for it. Didn't take long to sell either. Believe that was slightly more than he paid for it in Japan. No step-up transformer needed.

    Interesting. Thanks. How does everyone feel about this? I wonder why Accuphase hasnít shut them down. Weird.

    Re: Accuphase E-800

    Probably because they don't care or its simply not worth their time as its the US and Canadian Distributors issue. I would never buy a 100V unit... I guarantee it wont be factory sealed and who knows its history or whats been tinkered with it.

    I really do believe their gear is engineered phenomenally well... they are as dead silent mechanically while turned on as any other piece of gear thats turned off. That is impressive, no transformer hum or buzz at the case or at the speakers. This takes effort and serious quality control. Would I buy any at the US pricing? NO... but I can certainly see why they sell.

    Exactly... An just try to get Accuphase to do ANY work on it... Won't touch it with a ten foot pole!

    Yep that's true. The statement about the boxes not being sealed or tinkered with is ridiculous thou. Everything Audio Cubes sells is just like buying in Japan except your gonna pay a few grand more. Ive known many Accuphase owners...none have ever needed any service done on their gear to my knowledge. If one is going to gamble on a piece of Grey Market gear Accuphase is probably the safest bet.

    ^ Absolutely agree.

    The way I look at it, using E-800 for an example, rolling the dice for $10,400 can result in 2 scenarios.

    1. I flip it after few months/years at half the price, which I honestly donít think itís that hard. This could cost slightly more expensive than buying/using/selling other high end brands. But it could also be similar.

    2. Somehow my unit dies, canít find someone to fix and I lose all of $10,400. But then again, youíd have to pay $10,600 more out front if you buy it at $21,000 for service and whatnot. Besides, is it guaranteed to recuperate at least half of $21,000 when the time comes and you sell. Probably not because, with units at $5,000 on the used market, it just wonít sell at $10,000. I do acknowledge that there may be a nice discount you could be getting buying at $21,000.

    Either way you lose, just like many other high end brands. Everybody is different, but I do get antsy if the cost Iím looking at is at a level where I donít feel too bad of losing (only somewhat lol). Iím very interested in comparing E-800 vs. Diablo 300 in my system.

    Or...forget all this and just continue ďpenny pinchingĒ for a set of M2s.
