ZYX Cartridges – All New Pricing, Back to Sanity!

September 16, 2011 :: Tags: , , , :: Comment

Thanks to the support of our customers, SORAsound is back to distributing ZYX cartridges again. Our costs have gone up much higher. Weak dollar and strong yen are hiring us bad. But we have introduced all new retail prices for ZYX to gain your business. They are all below Japan retail prices!

How could it be possible? Well, we are cutting our own profit. In fact, in some cases our margin is less than half of a dealer (yes, you read it right, a dealer, not a distributor) representing some competing brands.

The two years that SORAsound was not representing ZYX Co, prices of ZYX cartridges rocketed up, retailing from $1,000 to $16,000. ZYX Omega retailed up to $8,300. Gold coil had a premium of up to $1,100. ZYX mono cartridges had a significant premium over their stereo siblings.

Now, for the same models, we have the following pricing:

  • $795 to $9,995. For details please see (ZYX North American Retail Prices).
  • Copper, silver, and gold coils are priced equally.
  • Mono versions cost 30% under (yes, below) their stereo siblings.

Essentially we have done our best to offer prices as close to what we used to offer (factoring in our extra costs and the exchange rate).

We are also offering generous trade-in, trade-up, and MOVE-to-ZYX packages. For further detail, please contact SORAsound.

Announcing ZYX North American Retail Prices

September 6, 2011 :: Tags: :: Comment

We are happy to inform you of new ZYX retail prices for the North American markets. We have done our best to absorb our extra costs, and the pain we feel due to the weakening dollar. In the last couple of years, we have seen dollar subsided in value by over 20%. Despite all this we have made sure our prices are at the fair level they were a couple of years ago, and at or below Japanese retail prices.

SORAsound is also introducing generous trade-in, trade-up, and MOVE-TO-ZYX programs for our loyal customers.

ZYX Warranty, Grey Market — Important Note

June 3, 2011 :: Tags: , :: 3 Comments

Please note that ZYX cartridges carry a one year non-transferable direct manufacturer’s warranty when purchased from an authorized distributor or dealer. We have seen un-authorized individuals or businesses claiming to sell new cartridges (at times claiming warranty). Please be cautious.

We are aware of altered serial numbers, used cartridges sold as “new in box,” and downright damaged cartridges. If you have doubts, please ask for the serial number first and let us know. We can provide appropriate information for you such as the date of manufacture, country where warranty is valid, if at all.

ZYX – Welcome Back. We Love you.
