See points 1 and 2 of the "lessons learned" above and apply lesson 4!

They are overchallenged with the price discovery at the moment.
They try to remove a ring w/o resulting in two unlinked rings ...

Go back to the previous page and read the "leasons learned". It's obvious what is meant.

I believe you, honestly!
I think they really believed they can make money with these fantasy prices e.g. 4000€ for a Kronos 61, but now they face a different situation: everybody knows the US MAP prices and expects similar prices in Europe. It looks to me they are not willing to accept the reality (yet). Thus, I'm not surprised about such replies. It's irrational, I know.

The whole price discussion in Europe is f...ed up!

nothing can make the Oasys-owners feel better. Life doesn't make any sense for them anymore.

They are in full sulking mode Crying or Very sad Embarassed Crying or Very sad , wide-screen, HD, surround, THX downfall depression with hints of Egyptian crowd resentment.

15 days more of their "abandoned teenager" mood,

and the O will become a housename on Emo stages... Rolling Eyes

Think of the mascara-stained keys on used Oasys Shocked

I got answer from my swedish korg reseller today and they said that Korg doesnt allowe US-resellers to sell there products outside US. So If I buy from US anyway I see it can be a problem with the warranty.

euro 3219, a little high still but nearly ok

I am tracking the Kronos prices reported on this forum, and it definitely looks like it's linked to the S&P Eurostoxx 50 Index [for the 61 keys, in euro], with a 72-hours delay

During the Korg Kronos VIP Event in Scheveningen/NL, some price indication was given.

Price range (for all models): 3000-4000 EUR.
Target price for the 61 model shall start with a "2"! Very Happy
Availability: May 2011

Sources (in German language):
http://www.bonedo.de/feature/keyboards/korg-kronos/details/kronos-pre-seite-2/index.html
http://www.amazona.de/index.php?page=26&file=2&article_id=3295&page_num=4

This is in line with the message given by Frank Sawusch, Marketing Director of Korg&More Europe (in the youtube video referenced somewhere in this thread).

I hope that stops those fantasy price announcements.
