perhaps it looks like they're expensive at first glance, but it's all for a reason.
you don't pay them just for the gear, but also for customers' support that is hard to beat (at least in germany).
It does not LOOK like they are expensive, they definitely ARE expensive.
Akzent audio has demo-units to ship around, just like a lot of other companies who sell hi-end.
That`s no big deal and does not justify their high prices. It is part of the game.
(I know another german distributor who actually drove some units to my front door for testing).
There is this other seller who gave me his demo-unit while I waited for mine to be shipped.
This guy also guarantees replacement units while repairing yours in case it is broken.
There are some good people around.
Last time I bought hi end I saved about 800,- € for ONE single unit just because I didn' t buy from a.a.
I felt that this was a little bit too much for "good customers support".
