    I didn't read the Reddit post closely enough. I didn't realize that people sold stuff on Reddit and was confused why he didn't include the ebay links.

    @VincentS - Thanks to @Scubadude for pointing out the Focal deals at Moon Audio in the related headphones thread. They are also selling the ELEAR for $699 if you still want a pair (and have an old junk headphone to trade it, but the discount is immediate).

    p.s. and $2999 for Utopias; I couldn't resist at that price + free shipping.

    Every focal dealer has this deal. Adorama seems to be the only one with no trade in requirement.

    Note a few things. The trade in has to be working, clean, in original box and MSRP over $60. This is what I was told by a respected focal dealer. Also, you can find headphones at Amazon that meet this require the for about $40 if you do t have anything at home. For example

    Also, adorama is still selling elears, they are just backordered. My guess is that they will be fullfilled quickly.

    I played around with the SD links and after getting to Adorama, if you remove the affiliate ID you get:

    Utopia: https://www.adorama.com/foutopia.html?sdtid=10519472&emailprice=t
    Elear: https://www.adorama.com/foelear.html?sdtid=10519472&emailprice=t

    Important part for getting this discount is &emailprice=t

    Thanks ...I've ordered from Adorama. Shipping out of the USA so avoiding the trade in is useful

    Got an email from the seller saying it was a mistake. The guy asked me (and I assume others who bought at that price) to return the item, or he will get fired, and that he need to fund his medical treatment and is desperate to keep his job.

    Just thought I should throw this out there.

    I hope we're all compassionate enough to cancel our orders after a plea like that..

    Mine already shipped so it can't be canceled. And Amazon charges $8 for return shipping. *sigh*

    Looking at the Reddit thread it looks like most of the orders were canceled by Amazon before they were shipped.

    I just returned it and ate the money. After reading reviews, I don't trust the stand anyway. Was going to use it at work.

    Of course, now some are saying the whole thing was a scam and the email is fake, so who knows.

    Whatever. My conscience is clean and lesson learned.

    Amazon seems to have the Schiit Magni 2 for $59 (presumably clearing out stock because of the Magni 3).

    Seems to be gone now.

    They're also discounting the Uber version for $79. (But $20 more gets you Magni 3 so...)

    At the time of my post the Uber version was available at a discounted price but that's no longer the case.

    Audiogeeks has some new Campfire Audio IEMs available on sale for the following prices with either code "FIRST10" or "PROMO3345"

    Vega - $1169.10/$1104.15
    Andromeda - $999

    Dorado - $949
    Jupiter - $749
    Lyra II - $649
    Polaris - $539.10/
    Orion - $314.10/$309

    Vega and Polaris price is about how much they sell for used on head-fi so they're the best deal here, the rest were included mainly for others curious about pricing for those IEMs since they can be had cheaper used and in the case of the Orion on B-stock.
    Deal has been going on for about a week I believe so I have no idea when it'll expire but I assume there should be some B-stock sales on Black Friday or possibly later.

    1st EDIT:
    The Etymotic ER4XR is also available for $296.65 with promo code "PROMO3345" or $314.10 with "FIRST10".

    2nd EDIT:
    Interestingly enough the Andromeda and Vega are now being shown as "Discontinued" instead of "Out of stock", Polaris is still available at the discounted price. (only actual deal left)
