Custom is $800 yeah. You can also trade in your old ASG-1 and upgrade to the G-2 for $300

Gotcha. Someone recently said 2 weeks is what they heard and I hope that's accurate. I lack certain virtues =/

Not as smitten with the H200 as everyone else? Just curious.

So Musica Acustics likes to have a BIG profit margin?

Guys, the frosted ASG-2 with bass port costs $550. The CUSTOM version costs $799.

 

 

 

 

 

Musica Acoustics' ASG-2 price is 25% higher than MSRP

When you say the CUSTOM version, you mean AS-2 right? The website list them at $799. Is that price with added aesthetic options and 700 is frosted version? The options are all on "standard" in the bottom and price shown is $799... It says frosted.

Lol, nvm. u Fixed it wile I was editing.

So the thing Musica Acustics is selling, is the custom version?
I might have skipped that, but this "The Asg-2 is based on flagship Custom monitors AS-2 and is now finally available as Universals." sounds like they are selling the universal version.

I believe you that the universal version is $550, but that means that either I'am to dumb to read a few lines of product describtion or MA is a bit unprecise.

It seems they are selling them for more then the Aurisonics official website.

The AS-2 starts at $799(custom)
The ASG-2 starts at $550(universal)

MA is selling the ASG-2 (generic). They are selling the frosted version for $650, and the Stealth for $800. Each is $150 more than MSRP. You can buy them for $550 and $650 from Aurisonics and other dealers.

They probably have high fixed costs. Not everything they sell seems to be at a high markup so it's hard to gauge.
post #746 of 5473
What was the turnaround for your ASG-2's eke?
post #747 of 5473
I enjoyed the H200's sound. Driver flex and comfort were too much trouble however, latter more so then the former.

I wasn't letting anything go for $270.

It seems I am never going to get a response. Three messages and still nothing. Sucks for me I guess. I was going to inquire about the possibility of a refund.😐

Oh that is good to hear :)
I was not just a bit sad when I saw the $700 price tag.
Too bad I won't get the DigiZoid amp if I order from Aurisonics directly
/sarcasm

I really need someone to compare the ASG-2 to either the SM64, 4.Ai or EX1000.

I found my GR07 MKII and the 4.Ai technically even, and the ASG-1.2 head and shoulders above both (with treble eq applied). Since the ASG-2 is head and shoulders above the ASG-1, then I deduce that the ASG-2 is chest and torso above the 4.Ai.

I would offer the same suggestion for the TG334, and have done so with both earphones... the Ortofon tips on the 334 significantly open up the treble. I also find the Ortofon tips to be the best (to my ears) for the ASG-2. With both performing at their best due to the Ortofon tips, the treble comparison is exactly as I described it. Sorry if you disagree, but that is my finding.
