Seems to be across Europe. Finnish retailer Musamaailma also increased the price to that. I wonder what's going on there, are they in such short supply, has some component become exponentially more expensive that they need to raise the price or what? That's a big price increase for a brand new product. Personally I would not buy the QC at that price. I felt the 1600 euros was in line for a product that is modern and powerful but is going to need some software growth.
