Damn, wish I pulled the trigger sooner on these... going to have to wait awhile now because the CAD to USD conversion is absolute trash at the moment. Feels bad man...
Just glad I got the majority of my higher end cans and gear before this happened.
If anyone in Ontario has a pair in very good shape that they want to sell for a reasonable price, let me know :)
lol fellow Canadians here (Toronto), I'm also eyeing this vs the Denon AH-D5200. Currently leaning towards the Denon AH-D5200 but if you end up getting these should definitely leave a review here, thanks!
EDIT: If I end up going with the Denon then I'll get it through Amazon Japan (about $641 CAD before customs and shipping), so at the point is like is USD conversion worse or JPY conversion worse LOL.
Both are up and down right now... at least it came back up slightly over the past week... it was in a nose dive last week. I'm hoping CAD>USD goes back up a little bit over the next few weeks so i'm holding out.. Also, I buy a lot of collectible figures from Japan too so I've been looking at the exact same conversions as you lol. A month ago $10 CAD was about 800 JPY, last week it was like 730 JPY at the lowest but now its back to about 775 JPY... I miss the old days when CAD was on par to USD, those were great days!
There was a store in Hamilton or St. Catherines area that had those exact Denons on sale over Christmas and I almost bought them... I wish I remember what the price was but I think it was around 700-800.
lol oh yeah definitely miss the time when CAD is strong. CAD hasn't been that good for a long while.
And yes I know the store you're talking about, I was there a while back at St Catherines, it was Gibby's Electronic Supermarket. I think they had to special order it and it was around $800-900 so I didn't go for it at the time. I just checked now it's currently $898 so ordering from Japan might still be cheaper (since Denon is a Japanese company).
Though I think DT177X GO which is about $537 CAD according to google, compare to Denon's $641 CAD which is still not bad.
Like you said we'll wait a bit and see lol.
