Price increases in every sector, have you noticed this also?

Recommended Posts

It was a news item recently: in Europe, consumer prices go up, with 10 to 30 per cent. Especially building materials go up. If you are in need of a bicycle, in Belgium delivery is expected in 2026, for some models!

I've been considering buying the iFi Zen Phono (preamp). Up to last month, it was €159. Now, everywhere, the price tag is ... €189

Keeping it Klipsch related, I've noticed the asking prices for used Klipsch speakers have gone up significantly as well.

 

On local craigslist for instance, I see Heresy I's going for $850, kg 4's for $650.

Ifi makes some interesting stuff. Make sure that is an actual pre-amp the Zen stuff I have not seen before. Had a $$ thing advertised as a pre with a tube in it that went inline with the signal. Could choose push/pull, SET, DECA and that was it I think. The first two made a big difference in the sound, but it was a "trick" I didn't need.

Enjoy it man! Don't wait too long, get it before the next hike hits.

Might be the best time.  Inflation means you pay back the loan with cheaper dollars.
