There has been some dramatic price reductions. It is not a set amount across every model.

Dealer margins have also changed substantially, so prior discounts are a thing of the past.

The Yen/dollar ratio yesterday was 170/1. Japan is depending on its exports more and more for income. I believe this yen /dollar ration if it continues in the wrong direction will be significantly harmful to the world economy. I also believe it to be the driving force behind the Accuphase price reduction, not necessarily to "gain more customers".

Ivan I hear what you are saying but I think a yen of 170 is unheard of in recent history. Any unit Accuphase sells even at a 25% price reduction will result in a large increase in profit margin, don't you think?

Good to hear. Also the yen is at 147.8 today. I must have heard incorrectly yesterday.
