I ordered the 009,s on June 2..with EMS shipping & Paypal it came to $3550.00
How they ended up for you to be $4300-,I don't know
Unless,the yen went up a by a huge margin..
By The By--I just got delivery on the 009's,this works out to be a 5 day delivery,from Tokyo to NY.--amazing,and I tip my hat to Kaneda,,for an excellent product and immediate delivery
Yes,this is a major invest ment for me as well
I sold all of my other Stax gear,to do this,but,man,am I in audio Heaven right now
Its end game for me,unless Kaneda comes out with the 0010's...then I'm screwed,and its divorce land for me.
That 4300 included the amp too.
