Talk about an importer's nightmare.
Granted, those interested in Korg DS-10
will still be able to import this intense synthesizer/music-creation software
, but being an Amazon Japan exclusive will make it that
much more expensive (as if imports didn't already
make our wallets bleed). As much as we love Amazon
, the retailer doesn't ship outside of its respective country or region, meaning a direct purchase from the site is impossible.
Going through some of the normal channels (like NCS
) will still work, but since they have to pay extra for retail, taxes, and shipping, the cost of the software went up $14. Now, instead of paying $48.90 for the import, interested parties have to pony up $62.90 -- and that doesn't even include shipping costs. Our wallets are crying
Of course, if you don't need the software this month, you can always wait for Korg DS-10 to release worldwide
-- whenever that will be.
