8351B Coaxial Driver Replacement

8351B Coaxial Driver Replacement

Youngling Posts: 0 Join Date: 4/21/20 Recent Posts

Hi. 

I am a user using 8351B, 7370A. 

Recently, the coaxial driver of the 8351B was broken due to an unfortunate accident, but when I contacted a local distributor, I was charged about $900. 

The international price is $4,000 each, and it costs almost a quarter of the price as? 

Does the cost of replacing the coaxial driver incur this much? 

What is the situation in the manufacturer's home country and other countries?

Usually, if you buy a product, part by part, it will cost you much more than the complete product. Another factor that raises the price is the scarcity of the spare part. I guess that the driver is not a fast-moving part, it doesn't fail much and therefore would be more expensive to keep a stock out of it. Anyway, I hope that the accident will not happen again and you will enjoy your fantastic speakers.
