Loads of really good products only had a limited life - and it still goes on as comments on Stereophile about some 'significant new' Japanese sourced speakers have attracted the same comments. they come, get rave reviews and are really liked, and then they're gone eighteen months later with any hope of spares a very few years after that.
Looking at the one for sale, it's very old memories, but for me, nothing short of a Spacedeck/Acespace would equal it, let alone better the sonic performance of this model (ignoring the beautiful finish and slick operation of the 8750), but obviously, should spares ever be needed, forget it as I don't think many were made, let alone sold in Europe...
Spot on with that comment Dave, one of the things that put me off Japanese gear._D_S_J_R_ wrote: The problem for me looking back is that decks like this would only have a year's production if that, so if a network of dealers really got behind it, it wouldn't make much odds as the replacement would be in the pipeline for the next 'season.'
I'm sure that I remember reading something, during the seventies, about Japanese companies chartering ships to dump "last years models" in the sea so that they weren't available at discount.
