I bought K2 and it crashed Pro Tools all day for 8 months so I sold it at a massive loss. I just bought K5 because I heard they were going to be RTAS friendly and then a week after I bought it they drop the price by $600. **NI
This price is simply crazy.

I just bought it and I can't believe how much you get for the price. Obviously they are about to release K 6 and need to move these boxes - but WOW. Most of it is good too. Acoustik Piano is painfully bad, but B4 II is practically worth the price alone. Not to mention Kontakt and Elektrik Piano. All seems to run fine for me in PT 8 too.

I bought mine a week before the price drop. Excruciating. You don't just drop the price from 999 to 399. That's such a MAJOR "*&$# you" high paying customer!

Have you tried contacting them to see if they will honor the new price since you just bought it a week ago? Not sure if they will, but I know some other companies have done that. GC has a 30 day price protection which I've taken advantage of in the past. It's worth at least inquiring.

I just own R5....couldn't pass up on this deal. I already placed an order thru ams and then I started finding a couple of these coupon deals for MF & GC, and considering having to pay state tax, I guess its worth the lesser 20 buck hit for the convenience of their 3 payment option.

I can't wait (back-ordered) *gear ******

yeah - your dealer should totally hook you up in this case. it doesn't benefit them to screw you so badly.
