It will be interesting to see if it gets released here. Pioneer seems to have given up on Australia these days.

Well it is on the Pioneer Australia website, and shown as retailing for $699.00 - wish I could buy one before they realise they have made a mistake.

 

Good to see Pioneer taking 2 channel more seriously these days. Can't wait for a PL-61 2018 TT :)

Scarily according to pioneer website, the only dealers in WA for this , are the various job hifi - not listed in their website (yet?)

$699 price has gone from.pioneer website. 

 

£2000 at the moment, is about $3400, which pouts above the Yamaha cds2100 and the similar priced Marantz unit (sa14s1?), but below their top spec models cds3000 and sa10s1

But got this reply from.Pioneer electronics Australia.

 

Hi Dave, in short, yes it is because it's featured on the Pioneer Home Aus website - https://www.pioneeraudio.com.au/products/pd-70ae-super-audio-cd-player

That said, Pioneer sold it's home business around 3 years ago. It was sold to a newly formed company called Pioneer/Onkyo. This new company is completely separate from Pioneer Corporation. The new company has appointed Powermove as the Aus distributor, therefore we have no control or influence over their communication/responses to customers. We can only help as much as we can

Like I said above, Pioneer has given up on Australia.

 

Its all down to grey imports now. Dont expect any support other than what a retailer will give. I'm a long time Pioneer fan and am quite disappointed at their decision to diss the aussie market.

 

I cant see any reason to support them anymore it they cant see a reason to support us.

 very odd - I've sent powermovepower ive AV 4 emails and commented on their Facebook page without a single response . 

 

And its its still makes me laugh, when business  go "oh you get better support from a bricks and mortar business" 

 

if if this their response to a sales enquiry , I'd hate to see what their after sales service is like.

Exactly, I was after a pioneer n50 for ages and couldn't find one anywhere, finally got one from greys online when it was a discontinued product, I also got burnt by a rude individual on here for buying a grey import and not supporting local stores.....some people.....

I think to buy a grey import is totally fine. If you ever intend on selling it that should be advertised in the ad.

Retail margins through dealers in alot of cases are just insane in every sense of the word. In alot (not all) of cases they get the stock in when ordered. Profit is not a dirty word and sellers have every right to make margin. Im in business myself and appreciate customer support but  if my pricing isnt sharp the sale flys away..end of story.
