Last time I heard was $2500USD for a pair of TC drivers. They are only sold in pairs for driver matching purposes IIRC. I suppose pricing
could have changed due to covid shortages and stuff, not sure. Best to ask Abyss.

Actually what’s crazy is that the Susvara was always $6k. Putting sound comparisons aside, there is no comparison in the quality of the two. It’s like a BMW versus Chevy.
difference is the street price of the susvara hasnt been anywhere near 6k for some time now....

seriously?
Yeah, I just checked. THe Susvaras are $6K, but you can easily get them for $4200. I doubt that you can get the TCs for that from a dealer with this new price increase

The Bartok is $18500 now too on their site. It's $16K elsewhere. What's Abyss doing?

(nevermind, it's $18500 at other place too)

That $7k we were hypothesizing about the as yet unnamed hypothetical successor to the TCs seems realistic given this new price. It'll probably be even more now :fearful:
