I think I should be able to order it this week and get it next or it will take 2 weeks to arrive. I have to do it through a friend in Japan as the person won't ship out of Japan (or at least it seems that way).
And, if a vendor wants to charge 135$, there will be people to buy it - that is between them and the customer. Obviously, there are other options. Just like buying a Colagno or a Trek. Both are made in Taiwan, but those who'd rather not get their feet dirty with a Trek will opt for the 'Italian' brand.
It's the same in audio as it is in every single market. As I said though, I'd really not be prepared to pay 135$ for a dock.
