CVP3xx MSRP vs. street prices (USA)
 
Just thought I would pull these prices together in a single post for those still contemplating. The following table shows all the MSRP prices I've seen posted, along with the infamous FL-based EBay shop's prices, and the percentage of MSRP the eBay shop are charging. As expected, the higher up the model, the thicker the margin, and therefore the deeper the discount a discount seller is willing to take. All prices are in $US. The MSRP prices are not authoritative, but gleaned from past posts. Can anyone confirm them?


Model....MSRP....FL-EBay...% of MSRP
301......$4195....$3190.......76.0%
303......$4995....$3595.......72.0%
305......$???......$4295........??.?%
307......$8395....$4995.......59.5%
309PE..$11095....$6149......55.4%


I don't believe I've seen the MSRP for the 305 posted, but I would guess it would be somewhere in the neighborhood of $6600.

Several of us have purchased 307s at close to the FL-eBay price above, and I would anticipate the other models could also be had at similar "discounts" but it may take some work. It is definitely worthwhile letting your dealer know you are willing to shop around - even out of state if necessary. But I also think it is worthwhile being nice, and coming out of the deal with a decent relationship with the salesperson (of course, this may not be possible if they refuse to be reasonable). I spent considerable time at the dealer, playing their instruments. That experience was critical to my decision making, and definitely has value. Internet dealers don't have that overhead, but in my book, it is worth paying (some) for.

Another important bargaining note is that if your dealer doesn't have to "floor" the instrument, they can save something like 6% off their price. Flooring means they order one just for you, and therefore don't have to pay "flooring", or interest charges. If they're stocking them, this may not be the case.

The street price for 305 is as follows:

Model....MSRP....FL-EBay...% of MSRP
305......$6995....$4295.......61.4%

Note to prospective buyer: Best Price Inc. claims that it sells the Yamaha Clavinovas with full US warranty. Read about the personal experience of Steve on buying a CVP-303 from Best Price Inc:



His CVP-303 did not come with a warranty card. However, Steve was able to register his instrument on-line at:



The Yamaha Database accepted his Product ID, Serial Number and Company Name.

I understand that the warranty documents aren't packed with the Clavinova, anyway.

We ordered one 15 days ago from a local dealer who was nearly sold out of the 3XX series. At that time, he gave us a warranty document "Conditions of Warranty", and a microphone, a headset, and some Christmas software.

Like most modern warranty documents, this Conditions of Warranty certificate has no value; you only need the original sales receipts to prove that your item is new enough to be under warranty (and prove that you paid for it).
_ _ _

I did find the above pricing info very useful.
We made a deal for a CVP-303 at $200 over the Best Prices quote. For that $200, we get setup, delivery inside the house, the bonus stuff mentioned above, the notorious "US firmware", and (hopefully) access to hassle-free service.

At the time we made the purchase the dealer only had a CVP-307M, a CVP-301, and most of the CLP series of Clavinovas on the floor. We also checked with another dealer, who was closer, but wanted almost full list price. (The high price dealer still had a 303 on the floor!)

 

desipianist 01-21-2005 12:49 AM

I got my 303 for US$3200 + taxes. Had to haul it and fix it up myself. I think I got a great deal on it.

 

dalgety 01-21-2005 01:02 AM

desipianist,

Yea, sounds like you got a great deal! You say you had to "fix it up" - what does that mean? Was it broken? Or do you just mean you had to assemble it?

Congratulations on your new CVP! Let the good times roll!

-Ross

 

desipianist 01-21-2005 01:08 AM

I meant I had to assemble it myself, which is really easy.

Those who live in the San Francisco Bay area can email me and I can tell them which of the local stores gives these great deals.

 

dalgety 01-21-2005 08:21 AM

desi, you indeed got an awesome deal! Was this the price they had listed (would be truly amazing if so!)? Or did you have to break some knee caps to get the price down there? ;-)

-Ross

 

tmcasey 01-21-2005 10:56 AM

desi - bay area dealer
 
Desi--
Hi. I tried to email you to get the info on the Bay Area dealer, but the system said your account doesn't accept private emails. Of course, I'm a newbee and may have done something wrong.

I would love to have the dealer info as I am hoping to purchase a Clavinova soon.

Thanks
Tami

This is in San Antonio, TX. These prices were quoted as sale through March 28th for stock in hand. I don't know what the dealer's regular prices are (after 28-Mar-10).

I think the list (msrp) prices were CVP-505 $8999 and CVP-509 $11,997.

Hello. I'm looking to buy a CVP509 and the sale price here in Houston is $9980. Do you think I can get a better price elsewhere? Has anyone paid less so far?
Thank you.
