In Reply to: RE: I found an Aesthetix Calypso for under $600. What's a reasonable price for this line stage? posted by Ron P. Stewart on March 11, 2017 at 17:27:47
Checking around the going rate seems to be around $3,000 for a non -signature version. Getting it for under $2,000 tomorrow when the bidding stops will take a lot of luck.
In that case - wish me luck!
$123.49 For shipping is a bit much , even though they say this in the listing :
" Important shipping note: Due to the nature of this item, I will hire an established shipping company to pack and ship the Calypso professionally. I have used them in the past to ship other audiophile equipment and they are excellent. The Calypso will double boxed and reinforced with professional shipping materials."
I have shipped a pair of Magnepan 3.6r's that were double boxed that didnt cost this much to ship, and I know that the Magnepans weigh more than this Calypso does.
I wanted the item to arrive without being damaged. FedEx Air is really the best IMO. So I paid for it to go air freight.
For a item worth $3,000 why try to cheap out on shipping?
Sending it regular UPS is like giving the item an immediate death sentence!
Agreed, FedEx Air is a superior shipping method.
I suppose that is a high price, but if I can get the Calypso for a reasonable price I won't be bothered too much about that.
