TAD launches a new floorstander : TAD-E1TX-K
 
TAD-E1TX-K :

Very different from the past E1.
Much more beautiful externally.
Probably a total re-design internally too.

It has been launched in Japan since Sept 2018.
I read several Japanese audiophile blogs, all praised it highly.

Wow...that's one hell of line-up!

I read a number of Japan audio news websites & Japanese audiophile blogs and there was no mention of such a plan for R1.

The list price in Japan is 2,200,000 yen per pair.

Sad to know that there is such a mark-up in USA.

In Hong Kong, the net prices of Japanese audio products are lower than the Japan list prices, usually by 10-20%.

The most extreme example recently is the Pioneer UDP-LX500 4K BD Player.
Its list price in Japan is 185,000 yen (i.e. around USD1750).
However its net price in Hong Kong is HKD6980 (USD900) and this is the price quoted by the official dealer of Pioneer in HK, not parallel import.
