Home Speaker Asylum

General speaker questions for audio and home theater.

Don't confuse British speaker prices with distributor markup

A speaker like the the Harbeth 30.1 is very reasonably priced-in Britain.
In America it costs $5600. In England they are about $3300. This has very little to do with currency rates, shipping or duties. Or Harbeth. Prices are set by the US distributor based on what he thinks he can get. If someone feels comfortable with that here, then they buy the speakers. Personally, I don't.
(Check out Accuphase Japan vs US prices. Unbelievable!)
