We have already detailed some major price increases from Naim Audio and Linn, but brace yourselves for forthcoming rises from Rega, Fyne Audio, B&W, Naim service, MOON, Nordost & Quadraspire 😨.
The escalating costs of components, raw materials and transportation across the globe have been well documented this year, so it comes as no surprise that the majority of manufacturers are now giving notification of price rises in their products. The good news is, all of them are honouring current prices until the price rise date, in most cases 1st January 2022. Which means you have two weeks to decide and order any products, upgrades or systems before it could cost you a whole lot more! There is no rush to have purchases delivered or installed – lead times vary from a few days to a few months – but your order does need to be in.
