Stellar series prices in Europe?


#1

I’m interested in buying SGCD but the price (difference) is so much higher compared to M700. I’m curios, is there a smaller discount for dealers for SGCD vs M700 or is it something else?

Example:
M700 in US - $4399 (w tax) is about 3585€ and I bought for 3200€ in EU. Price is 10% lower.
SGCD in US - $1869 (w tax) is about 1522€ and I see dealers online prices between 1900-2240€ + shipping. Price is 30…40% higher.

What’s the catch here I’m missing? I think these SGCD’s would sell like hot cakes for 1500€! Smells like cartel agreement to me…

Are you factoring VAT in?


#3

I don’t understand your US numbers. A pair of M700’s is $2998 and an SGCD is $1699. That’s without VAT (which we don’t have).or US state sales taxes. Your numbers in dollars reflect a 47% mark-up on the M700’s but only 10% for the SGCD.


#4

Yes, I writed that US prices are with sales tax ~10%, because all EU prices are with VAT.

Screenshots with US prices:

etc.

As I said, the US price for a pair of M700 amps is $2998. For $3999 you get a pair of M700’s and a SGCD. That’s direct from PS Audio. I don’t know where you got that screen shot for the M700’s but it is wrong.

PS Audio home page: Products -> Audio Components -> Stellar M700 -> More Product Details

That explains where you got it but it’s still wrong (PSA needs to fix the site). If you go to Products/Audio Components and then select the M700 you get the correct price of $2998. See https://www.psaudio.com/products/stellar-m700-power-amplifier. If you select the M700/GCD combo you get the $3999 price.

Yep, both links take you to M700 with combo price. Now I get it and understand @michael-denmark’s complain about EU dealers with crazy prices in another thread. :wink:

Thanks @stevem2 for explaining.

Definitely confusing.
