Google ONKYO TX-NR5008 or 5007 then check search tool marked (more shopping sites) this is the fastest way I have found to get best prices on any product available In your country of choice and denomination. You should be able to find the MSRP on the brands site but I have recently run into a certain brand's reluctance to give an MSRP for Canada and the US but with the only distributor in Canada is setting an SRP price not MSRP at ($43000.00 in $CAD)
($31500 is the $USD MSRP) If this price discrepancy is condoned by the parent company something has to be done it's a huge money grab.
I have not one reply from the head office of the parent company after almost 3 weeks of pressing all parties involved on the reason why the MSRP jumps by $13K at the border on a $32K system.
What do you think should be my next step to resolve the $13k question.
Dealers in US offer minimum 30%-40% off US MSRP for complete speaker system purchase bringing the price down to
$20475 $USD compared to $43000
There is no retailer discount for a complete speaker system purchase in CANADA.
I think this marketing practice needs to stop as soon as possible.
You better sit down when you do any price comparison checks and MSRP on anything sold in CANADA and the US.
The MSRP for the TX-NR5007 at one dealer in CANADA is $3199.99 $CAD thats = $3050 $USD.
The MSRP in the US is $2699 for both ONKYO TX-NR5008 or 5007
The lowest prices for new that I found are in the $USD
$1499.99 for the 5007 and $1899.99 for the 5008.
Used or refurbished 5007 are as low as $1299.99
I could realy cash in if we CANADIANS were as stupid as these companies think we are.
oops !!! better get a flack Jacket and move to Kevlar country
