RE: Linn Majik DSM/3 price
It won't be Linn's doing. The price is in GBP. Oversimplifying, but a distributor/dealer pays Linn £x for a DSM. If € buys more £ because it is weaker, then they can choose to pass on the saving to the customer. It may be volume of sales of Majiks are higher than anything else, so supply and demand mean they've done the maths and are able to re-price them lower.
Nothing to do with Linn.

RE: Linn Majik DSM/3 price
Initially I thought that the price drop of the Majik DS/DSM was an anticipation for Katalyst.
But the price of the Akurate DS/DSM is the same.

Remember also that distributors and dealers may well buy from Linn in batches, and will place orders (which are typically delivered quite quickly if they are standard items). The price the dealer will charge will relate to the exchange rate at which he paid Linn, rather than today's rate.

Also, as I understand it, dealers are free to set their own markup. A Linn dealer has significant costs, and is also trying to turn a profit on a (relatively) low volume product, so it should surprise no-one that the markup is a significant proportion of the total price. So with exchange rate fluctuations currently helping European dealers, it should not be surprising that some dealers mark prices down to increase sales volume, or maybe just to shift stock.

Time to pick up a new Majik DSM for every room in the house?

At that price, they are cheaper than chips. Tongue

The suggested retail prices in the previous official price list (effective 1st July 2017) were 3850 € for the MDSM and 2600 € for the MDS. Do you have a link to the most recent one?

RE: Linn Majik DSM/3 price
The difference in the exchange rate is way too low to solely justify the big discount Linn now gives for the MDS(M)s. Selling an MDS in Germany 745 € cheaper than before is equivalent to a discount of 28.6% in relation to the previous suggested retail price of 2600 €, but the exchange rate in the past twelve months did only roughly change in an +/- 5% window.

The biggest markup happens on the Klimax range, not the Majik one, although its volume is the least. During my source upgrade path it has become obvious to me, that the negotiating range is much more higher when it comes to the Akurate and especially the Klimax level.

Unless you have no negotiation skills at all, you won’t have to pay the suggested listing price for any Klimax gear. Besides that the amount of money you’ll get for traded-in gear of lesser level will be much more higher than you’ll ever be able to get on the free market.

RE: Linn Majik DSM/3 price
This amount of price drop is unreal, has nothing to do with exchange rate.

RE: Linn Majik DSM/3 price
I think it is due to drop in sales, caused by competition (e.g. the Naim Uniti Atom finally being released).
Good times for customers.
