    Yes, but considering that the 400s will continue as a product, until perhaps upgraded, it's not an unreasonable asking price

    They are both current products, and only a few select dealers can carry the 500s.

    Any Eta on your pair ? Btw looks like the 300RS is being replaced by the 300SV. Which should be a 500 tech wise in a stereo amp configuration.

    My pair arrived but I won't buy until I sell my 400s at a reasonable price. I am surprised that no owner of the 500s - and there are many - has not provided any listening impressions so far. For my impressions, you will just have to wait but for now, I will just quote the dealer's characterization as "pure and natural", and I am not basing this on what I hear in the store and with the Magico M3s.
