That's something you should ask Dale. I don't wanna disclose prices much more as it seems to have a negative outlook on a great product that's absolutely beautiful. I've worked it out with Dale to pay back some of the costs for upgrading my chrome plates like he did (and plan to pay it back completely in the near future), so I am not even 100% sure about the cost of the black and red aesthetics myself.

I should be receiving the AS-1's in about two weeks or so, I'll be burning them in partially by listening and partially by letting them run. I wanna get them burned in quickly so I can add to my review how they compare to the already well known AS-1 series.
EDIT: Also wanted to say that the Black and Red aesthetics is quite involved. It's hand painted (AFAIK) and other things are done to them. You'll get the full effect when I get them photographed by my photography major friend at college.
