They need to reissue the monopoly too.

Why is Australia so expensive?

While it's 599 Euro here it is $739 at storedj, list price. They'll probably keep it at that without a discount until demand slackens. They wouldn't move one cent on the Minibrute, but they didn't need to either.

Yeah I don't quite understand that either.
Awave is listing it at $799. It's like they forgot the US exchange rate is still pretty much 1:1.

You pay extra for having the most awesome accent. And because Mel Gibson is an Aussie.

It's coming up as 699 for me?

It's called isolation.


Could be worse. The mark up on some other things is a lot worse then that.

I too am excited about the MS20 Mini. But instead of buying that why not just buy the new Moog Sub Phatty? Its street price is about $1,000? For the $400 difference in price, I think it's totally worth it to save your pennies and buy the Moog.

Think of it this way: if you bought both the MS20 and a Minibrute (which a lot of people are saying they will), you could've saved $100 by buying just the Moog. And plus, you'd have a Moog! :lol:

Nah, the Moog phattys do nothing for me anymore. I'm done with simple 2-vco monosynths. It has to be something different like the MS-20's patch panel or the crazy filter/oscillator of the Minibrute to be any interesting.

Also, my modular system har a Moog 24dB replica filter, my Andromeda has a moog-clone filter, and I have a Creamware Minimax, which is a minimoog in most sense but the name.

You're done, but I'm just starting! I've never owned a monosynth. I think the Sub Phatty is a good place to start. Although I have to say, I'm not fond of the way they named this whole series of products. "Phatty"? Really? :shock:
