In another thread people are talking about the best prices in US/Europe for an S90.  Since I’m looking to buy an S90, but import duties & shipping would be a killer to buy from over there, I thought I’d find out what people are paying on Oz.  Where did you buy your S90 (& which state was the shop in) and what accessories did you get thrrown in for the price?

Re: S90 prices

Try Pro Audio in Canberra. They quote very competitive prices over the phone. I have found them a cut above most in the music trade. Their site is at [url=http://www.proaudio.com.au]http://www.proaudio.com.au. [/url] They stock many Yamaha products including the Motif etc.

Re: S90 prices

I’ve recently purchased a S90 from Turramarra Music store in Sydney for $3500.00. I thought it is a pretty good price. It’s about 25% discount from the retail price.

Hope this help.

Re: S90 prices

We get them in the U.S. for under $2,000.What is a dollar worth in Australia. And buy the way did any of you guys in Oz ever hear about Robert Theobald, a futures economist who passed away (in Dec. 1999 I think). In April May 1998 He was interviewed on Austrailian Radio for 6 Sundays.Very interesting.

Re: S90 prices

$2000 US = $3012 AUD so you get them for less than $3000 AUD ....
Pretty sad really.
No wonder I can’t afford Yamaha gear anymore /forums/images/icons/frown.gif alt= .
Gotta admit though the sound quality is spot on in nearly all their products.
Love their DAWS immensely and their Bass guitars are rather nice.
Motif 6 Classics are around $3795 now (which is a significant price drop but probably not significant enough). Especially considering Korg have just had a huge price slash and Triton LE’s can be had for $1600 AUD , the Karma has dropped by well over $1500 AUD too which isn’t a bad deal if you get two expansion boards and moss capabilities fitted IMHO.
Mo Racks are about $1000 AUD more than you’d buy one for in the States too /forums/images/icons/frown.gif alt= . Pity ‘cause it’s a damn nice unit .

Re: S90 prices

Our dollar is around 66 US cents. More to the point it is about 80 Yen and the $US is about 120 Yen. In both cases it is about 2/3 which means comparing our prices with the U.S. prices is fairly valid. It would be interesting to know the prices in Japan so we could make a more direct comparison. I think we pay 30% import duty as well as 10% GST, which is on the retail price. I guess that means we’re paying tax on the import duty as well as the original price of the item. Sigh.

Re: S90 prices

Arfreaf,

go to [url=http://www.turramusic.com.au/]http://www.turramusic.com.au/. [/url] Get their phone number there. Give them a call. I am sure they can sell you a S90 at that price.

Have you consider the new Motif ES which has been recently announced by Yamaha? If you want to find out more about it go to [url=http://www.motifator.com]http://www.motifator.com. [/url]

Re: S90 prices

whoa! only recently noticed this post!

thanks bc2/Ta.  Yeah the ES looks nice. I don’t need all the sequencing and stuff and I’m sure I’d be paying more for that. Thanks for the info and I will look into it.

Matt

Re: S90 prices

If you’re in Melbourne definitely go to Troy’s House of Music, Prahran - they also do a very good deal (3500 if you cough up on the day)
