I have just visited an authorized focal dealer in my area. and the dealer happens to have a pair of focal 1027be in an opened box. I know that this model was replaced by the newer one - focal 1028be. 1027be used to be sold at $US7,500.
It will come with full factory warranty.
- The dealer gave me the price. yet negotiation is still open.
- I used to see the dealer price list (Factory selling price to dealer ) of B&W speakers. local dealer profit is around 50% of its retailed price.
- Do you believe the replaced model should sell for "Half the price" of the orignal? $US7,500 / 2 = $US3250.?
Thank you a lot.
