They say up to 75%; I may have to call my dealer and see how much it would cost to bump up to a Ref Phono 3.

Bill - that's what I was thinking as well....I'd be interested in hearing the difference between the 2SE and the 3. The 2SE is so good it's difficult for me to see how much better it is, but we'll see.

I talked to my dealer and they said the price of the new product had to be well above the MSRP of the product I was trading in, so I would not get a 75% trade-in on a Ref Phono 3 but I would if I decided to purchase the $30,000 Ref Phono 10.

Alas, that's a bit more than I want to spend, so I suspect the Ref Phono 3 will have to wait.

Whoa!! 75% of retail on a trade-in is quite generous. Are you gonna do it?
