I was referring to the F5. They should be going for about $550/pair street price right now, so not too bad in terms of affordability. If you shop around by emailing some retailers (SonicSense, Zzounds, etc), they might be able to offer you an even lower price, as there are restrictions that prevent them from advertising a price below the MSRP. My new F7's are coming tomorrow, and my new preamp is coming today. I can't wait - it's going to be a great week!
