Re: the Fiend



One positive Fiend comment.

I was after the Korg DL8000R and AM8000R, and MF had supposedly 
discontinued
it. On my second call, the sales guy muttered something about being able to
check stock and found 10 of the DL's hiding there... No mention in the
catalog or on the website anymore, and he was confused as to why. Anyway,
they matched some ridiculously low price I quoted. I got the AM from
Audiomidi.com for around $250.00 and I think I got my DL for closer to $200
from MF! (I'm old so my memory is failing... )

I think at least trying to have a short, calm discussion with *whoever*
you're dealing with can sometimes produce great results regardless of the
vendor. When you expect the worst, you sometimes get it.

Caveat Emptor!
