Well , name me a price ......
We are not second hand dealer , all items we sell as used are tradedin from our customer and we don't rate it condition but for the buyer to decide on it own.
From time to time we may sell off some New but open up used for rental/standby/loan items and to ensure they cant be sold as Brand new , we will dispose off the box.

I see that storm audio list Absolute Sound as the distributor for Singapore. @econav, are your storm audio units from them?

wow...  :o
I would rather use my money for good speakers and/or subwoofer then buy Japanese flagship model (around $5k to $6k range)
The issue is whether the benefits justify the costs.

5k is the max I can swallow for AVR based on my limited setup.

It's all relative. $20 to $30k for a receiver is reasonable to some.

I was told the RRP is SGD29k here. Street price could be lower :)

It’s not for the faint of heart imo. Furthermore, one needs to be proficient in the use of the Dirac suite to fully appreciate and get the best out of those “value” invested. If the user merely content to play with the basics and have no complete autonomy to take full advantage of such prowess, then I agreed with bro Whitesox, this is an overkill. But for more pro users, this is probably as good as a full fledged high end flagship (much like Trinnov) that money can possibly buy.

For me, I guess I will keep on dreaming.

If MSRP around $29K, then street price probably half of that and still considered very high for ordinary folks UNLESS of course we manage to get a second hand unit for less than $10K.

Half of that may be pushing it. I would think 22 to 24k? Hence, my question to econav is if their units are from Absolute Sound? What is  the support for breakdown and issues?

Any Bros here, besides Ralfale uses StromAudio? Care to comment on its performance and share your findings on the features and tweaks with everyone?
