CD3000 group buy thread - Page 2

post #16 of 290

Our plan:

Someone with business background set up a front company, then purchase 10+ CD3000's, at whole sale price, either directly from Sony or from one of Sony's distributors.

The rest then will be history.

Of course we NEED a VOLUNTEER!

Looks like we should have enough people for this group buy.

Now, someone PLEASE volunteer your service to organize this thing
Now that guy would have to handle a lot of money!
Anyone with prior experience we can find? Like those guys who organized the amp group buys....?

LOL, I highly doubt you'll be able to pull this through. But if you DO and the price is sub $220-230 shipped then I'm in.


PS, lol 19 views and 18 replys, everyone is hopping on the deal...

That's why we are looking for a guinea pig.

Oops, did I say guinea pig? I meant to say VOLUNTEER.

Yeah, $200 wouldn't be too possible, but it won't hurt to try. My feelings tell me that when we first ask for the price, they'll give us something around $400. Its tough....


Gotta tell them IF the price gets to $250, they'll get 10+ orders from us, else why would we be interested at all?

I'm not gonna be the guinea pig fo' sho.

List so far:

JazzJackRabbit
highflyin9
Salt Peanuts
jhawk22
lojay
slug
ayt999
Zuerst
gastro54
KenW
psxguy85
Sovkiller
ampgalore
Shafu

People need to figure out the maximum they would spend if they have not decided already.

If the regular price is ~$400 then I'm guessing a group buy if sucessful would be more in the $270-320 range.

You'd be insane to volunteer for organizing the shipment. I don't have enough space in my dorm to hold this many.

I am in if the price is below $250.

The key thing is that we will have to qualify for whole sale price.
post #25 of 290
If the price falls below $200, I'm in. Maybe even under $250.
post #26 of 290
lojay: MAX. ranges from $250 to $265. No more than that.

Whoa, the number of views soared from 26 to 148 in split seconds!?
post #28 of 290

First things first: We need a volunteer (guinea pig)

The last good price I saw was 349.00 plus shipping, from a dealer, take out the mark up, and it leads to a maybe a 200-225 and he had gotten about 10 pairs only IIRC. OTOH CD3000 batches according to him, runs about 1000 at a time or so, they do not have a huge warehouse full of CD3000 there in Japan neither....it is not a piece of cake to sell headphone (cause the price)

Again, if it falls around 200, count me in, maybe to modd one etc...
