A popular audio product seemingly doubles in price overnight (as advertised ON CANUCK) and we aren't supposed to ask "why"?

Right, ok.

I aint razzing you, Man. It's a valid question and as Toby says it's CAM forums' raisin deeter.

Based on the international hype started by old Rusty :mrgreen: , I ordered 2 on spec from Comet. After a couple months they refunded saying they were forced to drop the line owing to massive price increases from Denon most notably for the 110. Denon decided to cash in and now that it has significantly cooled they will probably backtrack.

Several years ago I contacted Denon Canada about where to buy a 103. The marketing chick's response was, 'what's a phono cartridge?' :lol:

There's a seller on that auction site that has the DL-110 for $219 + 8 shipping. They're Canadian based.


Ummm. Guess what, it's the same seller that's advertising here with a banner ad that takes you to this;

So it's $220 CDN on eBay but the same cart sells for $399 on their website. :shock: :shock:
Btw, I've seen this vendor do the old bait'n'switch ebay advertising before, with the DL103/103R. Caveat emptor.

That's really crappy. They advertise the same price on Amazon.ca. I'm going to check and see if it does the same thing as ebay.

Not considered one of their best albums, but excellent all the same and one of my favorites, runs a close second to Big Beat...
The post with three why's in the first sentence brought the earworm home...

Well you answered yourself in your 3rd sentence... That's WHY

And, as I said, because they can ask whatever they want.

:lol:

Never a beef with you, amigo, it was someone else.
I changed the topic title so everyone can untangle their panties and be happy again.

+1 That's a very decent deal and the DL103 is completely in another league from the DL110. Doesn't look like they ship to Canada though.

Your link was messed up, this one should work.
