I've heard mention on the forums about a 5-15% pre-order discount on the Kronos. Is this actually doable? I was gonna wait to try it out, but if I can score a 73 for 15% off on a pre-order (I'm in the US), I'll pull the trigger. Worst case scenario is that I can demo it extensively in my home, and then sell it on Craigslist without losing much (if anything), assuming I don't dig it.

Usually the discount is off of MSRP (not MSAP).

Just to give you an idea on pricing, Nova offered the 88 key for $3599 and Sweetwater has been matching it.

IMO, there is no point to pre-ordering other than to ensure you get one of the first ones available.

I'd say there's a good chance the first Kronos shipment will sell out quickly.

They need capital money to fund their enlarging of their service shop when all of these klunkers come back DOA.

So we can get one of the low serial numbers. It's pretty cool feeling.

The point is that I've sold my keyboard (XF8) to finance the Kronos, so I'm in "keyboard withdrawl" at least for synth type work! The sooner I can get the Kronos in the better.

In the meantime, I slum it with the N3!
