    Etsuro Gold MC Cartridge in house

    Wow! It isn't often I get to see such a display of self righteous hogwash. Taking two sentences and turning into some gross display of disrespect is one thing, but this takes the cake. Even the retipping, good Lord! It is laughable, really. I have to admit I have enjoyed the childish...

    Sorry 70 not 75% and when all possible we sell through our dealer network unless the geography is not supporting one in a reasonable distance. If there are no dealers then we can discuss that on a case by case basis

    They are not meant to encourage or discourage you to do business with me. I am merely doing damage control. If you find me to be disrespectful because I have found another instance of a distributor selling into the USA which by the manufacturers prohibition of it then I am afraid I have no...

    If there were a dedicated method of procurement factory direct everyone would just pay the air fare and buy it to avoid paying for the distribution or dealer markup. In the case of cartridge everyone that has inquired has been denied because we spend minimum of thousands on promotion and events...

    Apologies Mike, but I am afraid that is not what I meant to say. What I meant to say is simply what i have already said and I see no reason to retract that statement. In fact I will reiterate it. I am happy for you, but very disappointed that you chose to go the grey market instead. The...

    Well while I appreciate your advice I am going to have to add a couple of points of contention. 1) It is a hobby to you. It is a business for me. 2) As the distributor I certainly do not want to further the assumption that this can be done ongoing unless you have connections and those...

    That is an interesting philosophy. I did not realize that is was the consumers choice to forgo what is set forth by the manufacturer let alone the distribution that spent thousands of dollars to make that consumer even aware of the existence of the product in question. Personally I would...

    Well on one hand I can say I am happy for you Mike and the acknowledgment of the level of performance I have been reinforcing for some time of this lineup. On the other hand it is quite obvious that you did not procure this from me so this thread really sank my ship. I look on the bright...

    Apologies for the delayed communication, all of the responses were routed to my junk folder and I don't frequent WBF as much as I would like to. Always best to email me for a quick answer. Regarding pricing, there is nothing mysterious or sinister about it. In all of the world the number of...
