All i know is it went up on a "street price" level. thats what we call it here. The MSRP of 7000 didnt change.
For crying out loud you were disputing that there could be a price hike of 30% generally not whether it happened yet! It may well yet. I clearly demonstrated price hikes based on exchange rate were coming through generally early this year.
It's only early Feb, has anyone confirmed a fresh shipment has landed here as yet? Until someone can confirm they have, one dealers comment is still only speculation. I'm also afraid I've not heard of a retailer taking a margin hit like that and not passing it on.
I'm now going inquire using my own contact at Sony as whether more have arrived and what the pricing is at commercial and RRP.
