Hey Warrior, thanks for the reply
I don’t think its just VAT, all A&K products retails at way above the US prices in Europe. For example the Astell and Kern AK120 II model above retails at £1,499.00 (Incl. VAT).
£1499 = £1,249.17 ex VAT. = $1,956.29
Cheapest price on Amazon is $1,379.00, most expensive is $1,699.00. That’s a fair difference (between $257 and $577 depending on where you buy).
I think A&K need to revisit their RRP pricing strategy in Europe...
