Talking picture of the inside of the ML rosette! - This is fun! Compare it with korsun u2

Take a look at this!

Click the image to open in full size.

and compare it with the pics of the korsun u2 on the page : http://www.geocities.com/super_bq/Korsun.html

the price tag for the ML rosette in denmark : 29000dkr.

I do not know what the price is for the korsun but certainly not 29000dkr!!!!

The Korsun sells retail for about $200 USD. The Rosette for $2,000 USD.

yeah, a lot of people have asked Mark Levinson about this, and he said he does use the same factory as the Korsun but that everything is produced "to his elevated standards" etc. etc. i read a letter from him to someone saying how he had the "highest regard for Chinese engineering ingenuity" or some BS like that. so basically yeah, it is a Korsun marked up 10x. i think some parts are upgraded but it is virtually identical. i know of one person who actually took a Korsun he modded a little (just parts substitutions) to a Red Rose dealer and A-B'ed them, and they did sound a little different (parts differences?) but they were about equally good.

incidentally, as soon as the Red Rose came out, the Korsun was no longer exported to the US. probably some exclusivity contract with Red Rose. i tried to get my hands on one, but to no avail. a friend who has relatives in China said he might try but chances are slim at the moment. too bad, it looks like a really sweet little piece, i'd buy it for $200USD just for the nice little chassis and heat sinks.

If it retails for $200, then it costs $100 AFTER shipping
and customs.

well the equiv. retail price here is $200... i.e. it sells for US$200 in China (actually maybe more like $240). if they sold it here it would probably be at least $100 more as you mention. figure it would be ~$400 if imported to the US by a reasonable distributor.

The $200 is based on its retail price in Hong Kong after converting to US dollars. I don't know that it ever retailed here in the US. Well, other than with that $1,800 Red Rose badge on it.

Oops. Korsun's retail price for the U2 is 1,560 Yuan, not Hong Kong dollars. So instead of $200 USD, it's $188.48 USD.

Default So they are probably identical.

But what I wonder is, are they any good?

If they are good, is it possible to get the inexpensive one in the US?
