I'm actually really interested in the Fostex myself, but I do not like how the price went from $99 in the pre retail phase all the way up to $150. It's not a consumer friendly move in the slightest. I'd rather demo it than buy it, and if it was that good, I'd own it.
Havi did the opposite and mentioned they were doing a promo price of 239 Yuan ($40) back when the B3 was released, and bumped it up after 3+ months. I like that approach much better.
More comparisons of the Fostex, Havi, Doppio, etc.. are always appreciated. Helps (or hurts) wallets everywhere.
The next big thing might be the Dunu 2K for me, if they stay under $250.
^ Same here, will only buy those Frosties for $100 as promised, nothing more. I can MORE than wait it out.
But i will get to audition them soon, so will see..........
If those Havi B3s didn't look so damn fugly and cheap despite it seems to be well built i would be interested in a set, but just can't make myself to buy a set cuz of my personal standards. Pheeeew thank god cuz that helped me to avoid all the BS different variant nonsense. So may gut instincts helped me out there. : P
