Default Head's up, Fostex Price Increase

I've been chatting with Adam at Madisound, the continued weakness of the USD has had the expected effect -- prices of Fostex are going up.

The prices on the Madisound website will be going up on Monday, any orders before them of in-stock drivers will be at the current (soon to be old) pricing.

I'm told there are 127, 166, 206 (and not many of those) and probably some of the drivers that get less attention. No 126, 167 or 207.

Any idea of how much they are going up percentage wise?

I only have a price list for OEMs, not retail... but the couple drivers i looked at indicated that the percentage is not uniform, but on a driver-to-driver basis.

Also if an unsubstantiated piece of info i got from an Oz forum is correct we could see some slight changes in some of the drivers (a slightly different whizzer on the FE167 was the mention in this particular case). If that is true, lon i'll have the mate for your single.

Hopefully they don't go up too much.

Price increase + recession + collapsing currencies = economic suicide.

Hey Dave, maybe we can apply for some bailout money?

Cheers!

My prices (on regular stocking drivers -- FE126eN/FE126eN/FF85KeN) will hold for some time -- before i started this thread i stocked up at the old price,

And I, for one, prefer not to think of the state of the UK these days. We're going to be paying the penalty for this idiocy for many, many years. The responsible parties should suffer for this.

Crikey!

It wasn't that long ago when the GBP was $2.50 CAD. As of this post, it's a $1.68?
