I had a look at some of the Naim prices starting April 30th. I wonder if the Nac 282 really sounds $1K better now (at 9K). If Naim can't get their costs under control (or the distributor can't), it's really Naim's problem..
Or maybe they don't expect/want to sell any of the classic pieces anymore... - or want the uniti stuff to appear cometitive.
The 282 was already overpriced 5 years ago - now it's just pricing itself out of the market.
The stageline is $900. That's just a joke - it was already not super competive at the $500 pricepoint.
Just a rant - I'm not in the market for anything, but can't recommend Naim to any of my friends at these prices.
Or maybe dealers will have a bigger margin and will be expected to give 20% off..
