Did anyone notice these crazy high prices on the TE store?
I also noticed this after purchasing my unit in eBay for $840 USD new. I checked the site for accesories and was curious about the price increase. Quite weird…
Exchange rate fluctuations?
The euro rate has gone up quite much compared to SEK. Maybe that the reason?
140 euro of fluctuasions?
That does seem weird, probably a bug. The price I see is $849 USD which should be around $745 EUR.
looking in germany… its €949 here for the OP-1 and €69 for the PO’s….
Could it be VAT-related?
I’m seeing the inflated Euro prices now and I’m in the US. My guess is, their customers (other retailers) have probably urged them to only sell direct at a higher price (retail).
Strange. At one of the major resellers in the Netherlands (www.bax-shop.nl) it’s €789,-.
To me it seem very weird…
Maybe that messy POs thang it’s makin’ TE goin’ crazy XD
And their store it’s almost impossible to navigate from the smartphone.
€ value it’s higher than $
C’mon guys, these prices are crazy! Would you pay 949€ (1082$) for an Op-1? >_>
Please don’t talk of exchange rate fluctuations or taxes, it’s ridicolous. If it’s a site’s bug (I hope so but I don’t believe it) it’s better that they fix it soon, if not I think they’ll don’t sell many others Op-1s in the future…

I guarantee this is the reason. I’m a musical instrument retail buyer and in my experience manufacturers who sell direct do so at a higher price so they aren’t competing with dealers. I’m surprised TE hasn’t implemented this sooner.
I believe you, but so it’s better they don’t sell directly, 'cause those prices are… well…you know…
Well, the price here (brazillian IP) is $849 (USD). The dollar valued on the last months and the euro devalued, so it seems weird that it´s a rate fluctuation.
Yeah, an EUR 150 increase in the retail price and all that presented in the super-sexy typography & design TE have been known for…well, this seems just way more than a bug… not that I’d call EUR 800 cheap or even reasonable, but that was as much I could shell out last year for this project and now I’m kinda glad I’d done it. Does the nearly 20 % higher price mean that used OP’s will also sell for more than before?
