    I can't speak for those speakers specifically (I considered the Monitor 11 but ended up deciding to go with the Studio/60 instead), but I think typical figures have been on the order of 30% or so below US prices. If you're not picky about which finish you get, and you don't haggling with multiple dealers there, you'd likely do a bit better.

    Well here are some prices that I have seen up here in Canada in Canadian dollars. Note these prices are after talking down the price a bit with the sales people, if you walk into the store and get these all at once you should get the same deal or at least something close.

    Monitor 11 $1050 ?

    CC-370 $330

    ADP-370 $575

    PW-2200 $800

    Total $2755 Can or converted to US $$ $1,721. Also note that you will have to pay tax when you get them up here. That will add another 15% to the above total, but you will get the 7% GST back at the border and the other 8% back when you file for it in the mail. Anyway hope this helps.

    What about Studio-40 and Studio-60 (laminate) in Montreal, how much do they cost there?

    Here in Boston S60 in laminate runs around $1000 USD
