Is the market changeing?

In every economic cycle there are ups and downs, (Yes, I know it is very profound statement). And so some people tighten up their spending while for others it becomes an opportunity. I certainly see that prices are not where they were a year ago. Stuff is being lowered. Is now the time to pick up that dream piece?

I think it is. I think we are going to see stuff hit the market at lower price points than in the recent past. I�m looking for a TT and also trying to decide whether to upgrade my pre or simply replace it. What would be your dream addition?
Which products are now cheaper from a year ago? A pair of Thiel 3.7's went from just under ten grand a pair to over 12 grand in a matter of months. That doesn't happen because of a lack of interest or a down market. Unless you're talking about economies of scale, such as plasma tv's, the market the way it stands now is doing quite well based on what I can tell from the latest CES.

Companies have been, and will continue, riding the highs and lows of economic cycles without having to discount inventories. People who can afford big ticket items live in a different world than the paycheck crowd. It's an election season - take all economic "news" with a grain of salt.
Traditionally prices in the summer drop due to people spending more time outside. It will be interesting to see what they do this year
I really havent seen used prices drop but what I have seen is retail prices skyrocketing. The used equipt I see almost always reflects the new higher retail not the retail when the equipt was purchased. I think most of it is due to gas prices (transportation costs) and the american dollar falling. It will be interesting.
