    The subject says it all. I cant find one for less than MSRP of $159. And EBAY is a joke, people pay more than MSRP!

    And is the issue that you do not think it's worth list price or you can't see yourself paying list price for anything or a $20 savings will make (as opposed to break) the deal? The unit is in short supply (Behringer has production runs and if you're between runs you can literally wait months for a piece) and does what it does for hundreds less than the competition (Symetrix, Rane, Ashly, etc). $159 sounds like quite a bargain, don't you think?

    To Tony Genovese: Did you answer my question?
    In the future, Dont post to topics to just be a wise ass. [​IMG]
    But since you asked, I dont like to pay MSRP, especially if there is some quick way that I can find where its less (such as by taking 10 seconds to post this question on this board). I think 10 seconds is not too much time to make $20, how bout you? Oh well, now its been 30 seconds.
    And if its not less, then Ill pay MSRP.

    I wasn't trying to be a wise-ass. I was trying to provide some information re the Behringer and to put their pricing into context (as well as their production methods). In addition, I was trying to understand your motivation in not wanting to pay list price. Wasn't sure if you thought one of these was not worth the $159.
    These pieces are very hard to find (people wait months for them). Now if you don't mind waiting two or three months (rather than 20 or 30 seconds) to save $20 than that's your choice.

    I got mine from Dave's back when they were around $129. He's a nice guy and gave good service. He was out the day I ordered, but said he'd have more in two days. It arrived on my doorstep exactly when he said it would.
    $159 seems like a decent price considering the current MSRP and short supply. This is one piece of gear that's worth full price. You get a lot for your money.
