I actually got a very fair price on the KN7000 from a local dealer... Will still have to wait 30 to 60 days for it though.

It maybe the only one he sells he has never sold anything but the Technics Pianos..

BTW they are more than $2000.. as for the other boards we all know nothing really compares to the KN keyboards... Or we'd be buying their $2000 keyboards

And Sam Ash did sell Technics Keyboards at one time( it was about 12 years ago I believe) but lost the franchice for discounting them and selling out of his territory

Today I get to know what price there is to be payed
for a KN7000 here in Norway when it shows up sometime
in October.
It's not what I call any good offer, the most expensive
KN ever in this area.

Norwegian Kroner 32.995,-.
Todays currency will be in some other values:
2845,-
Euro 4470,-
USD 4395,-

The next question is what prices we will see for the
addons such as SD card, cardreader, soundcards etc.
Lucky you who don't live in Norway. (or Sweden)
I'm really sorry, but to me it looks more like:
Bye bye Technics, hello Ketron SD1!

Horray to all those who "dive in" and buy when the instrument first comes out.
We have waited months now for the KN7000 to hit dealers shelfs and have read anything and everything about them.
Those who are afraid of the "bugs" are those who worry too much.
These problems get solved and the first owners get to find them and report them.
To each his own but I cannot wait to get a 7000 ASAP. Guess that's what makes the world go round. Lloyd

I finally got to touch a kn7000 today, and was impressed with the looks of the unit - it reminded me of a big Cadillac with chrome bumpers. The sound was also impressive compared to the kn6000, and I will probably get around to buying one in the near future as soon as I can find a buyer for my old keyboard. The price of the kn7000 in North Carolina will run from $3000 to $3995 depending on the condition of your trade-in. Maybe cash will gain a discount, but it will be cash and carry. Phone orders will bring top dollar. Sooooo.....

That's an old used car trick to change the price based on trade. It's alot of crap too. The price should not change if you're trading or not ...... anyone that thinks they are getting a great deal because the trade is inflated needs to educate themselves in the art of consumer protection and smart shopping.
I can get any of you a new 7000 for $3000US. Trades are accepted, and will be quoted at wholesale price ... if I SEE the trade. No trades will be accepted unless they are seen and tested first. The kn7k will be new and in a factory, unopoened package - full warentee ..... full Panasonic support.
Don't fall for that hype and unfair inflated prices. It's just a keyboard, not a car!

I just checked the KN7000 price at SynthPlanet (Belguim): $2535.36 US dollars (3130.4 EURO). Shipping to USA is $94.64 + customs duty (approx $100) SynthPlanet also confirms that the KN7000 is currently 'in stock'. Pluses: SynthPlanet's low price, and no sales tax for US purchasers.

Potential problems/risks: No US Warranty (must be shipped back to Belguim for warranty service coverage); requires a voltage (step down) converter to work in the US.

Is the $ savings sufficient enough to warrant the risk of purchasing overseas? hmmmm.

I doubt it Scott, saving about 270 bucks is probably not worth it with no warranty and the possibility os shipping damage. Also the requirement for a 230v to 110v transformer will add to the cost and of course, discovering that you've left the transformer at home, when you unpack at a gig
I think I'd be inclined to try Uncle Dave's offer.

Scott, you have calculated with the wrong exchange rate. current rate is 1 US$ = 1.01, so the price for KN7000 if bought at Synthplanet will be about $ 3100

Hi Bert, the price I gave was NOT calculated by me. Both the $2535.36 US dollar amount as well as the $3130.4 Euro dollar amount are shown on the SynthPlanet site itself. Go to http://www.SynthPlanet.com and then enter 'KN7000' in the database search to see what I mean. I admit that even at $2535.36 plus shipping & customs duty charges, and then having to purchase a step down voltage coverter, it may not be worth the savings to risk not having any kind of US warranty coverage. The determining factor is just 'how much' the KN7000 will actually be selling for here in the US. The higher the US selling price, the more attractive the SynthPlanet alternative will be. You need to determine how much the warranty coverage is worth vs possible out of pocket expenses for repairs. Your decision will also be based on just how much of a gambler (risk taker) you are.
