1871Re: [perseus_SDR] Re: Are there any more Perseus radios to be had?
- May 14, 2008I can answer my own question, I think. Taking out the 17.5% VAT, the price is very comparable now.....still a bit pricier than the 666 Euros, but barely. Via ML&S, I now get $1084 without the VAT. Still a few dollars pricier than via Italy and the Euro, though.......Walt.
PS: I haven't included the shipping charges, though, so this might change the bottom line as well. ......Walt.

>John, I note that they now say that they've upped the price due to the poor UKP performance against the Euro. They're advertising UKP 649.95 which equates to about $1274 Cdn (which today is at par with the greenback). This compares to my 666 Euros from the Italian distributor last December, which is only $1034. Did you get a better deal or something? Either way, it's still a great deal for everything it can do. Still hoping for the built in multi timer function, though!!!! ......Walt Salmaniw, Victoria, BC, Canada.
