I am surprised very few have commented on these. An alternative to the SRX, QRX212, d&b Q7,  in a lighter scaleable format with better SQ and can be run passive would create quite a stir?

Danley SM80- first impressions
« Reply #31 on: December 30, 2012, 11:58:20 am »

It's mostly because you can almost buy 2 srx cabinets for every 1 SM80. It is widely known that the srx is the most widely accepted BFH that can be sold to artists an promoters alike.

Sometimes it doesn't matter if the product is better. If it costs more, but is harder for me to sell, it doesn't do me much good. Which sucks, because I really liked the box.

So how much does the SM80 go for?  A five minute web search yielded no results.  This shouldn't be a sensitive subject, I understand Danley insists its dealers charge a standardized price.

Thanks

MSRP is $2999 - I'm pretty sure Mike has also mentioned this on here when it was released?

That used to be the case-but that was done away with awhile back.

Here is a link to a video of part of the Atlanta WFX I shot with a stereo mic. I have a few more Danley products on other vids on my YouTube page.

Thanks Wayne, These Dnley Products certainly have a "dynamic" about them. They sound so open and detailed even thru my Bose laptop speakers.

Try using headphones-it makes a big difference.

The whole idea is a SINGLE source of sound.  Whenever you have multiple arrivals-you get a "smearing" effect.

This is most noticeable in speech and percussive sounds or instruments with lots of harmonics.

The attack of drums-the overtones of trumpets-the "click" of the piano keys and so forth are things to listen for.

Which would be illegal. You can insist on a minimum *advertised* price (MAP), but you can't insist on an absolute minimum price.

OTOH, if you're selling a boutique brand like Danley (i.e., you're not pushing a ton of boxes out the door every month), there generally is no financial incentive to steeply discount the units.

Cheers,

While I'm not a lawyer, I have observed that it apparently is possible to insist on a final sales price.  My beloved Festool power tools are this way, my Canon cameras and lenses are this way, and I suspect other things.  I've heard from dealers of these brands that if they sell for less than the designated price, they will almost certainly lose their dealership agreement.
