It seems to be on hold until they can do a run of 50, which they think will sell......so it's not discontinued, but you can't get hold of one either - That was what Neuphonix was told when he inquired.

Ah so. Thanks CnoEvil.
Don't want to doubt of what was told... But when I ordered mine they made me wait almost 2 months so had more the feeling they make them on demand...as I think it doesn't take 2 month's to ship one over.....

That is good to know...........maybe they have a different overseas sales policy for outside Europe.......who knows.
There's one here
Electrocompaniet EMC 1UP / Musical Fidelity AMS 35i / Focal Electra 1028be / MIT AVt MA speaker cable-Matrix 12 xlr / Chord powerchord / GIK acoustics/ Sennheiser Momentum
I was offerd almost the same price for an ex-demo so..... so think this is expensive.
Had mine for £3850 delivered in mint condition
Does the AMS 35i have some felt pads under their feet?
It's too heavy to lift out and look, but they have a "felt-like" feel to them.
Edit. If your pads have worn off, you could check these out: http://www.kronosav.com/valhalla-technology-vt-amplifier-feet-25-prices-...
Thanks Cno..im just a bit curious about the felt pad but when I peep it was really felt pads sitting in the middle of each feet.
I was able to grab the ams35 to my home for an audition driving 1028be. Love this amp!!! Very smooth, high resolution sound and great bass control.
Problem is in my country retail price is around $15k... probably I can grab the demo unit for $10k (after traiding in my m6i). I have a much better deal however for the Luxman 590AX, which is also a class-a amp. Have anyone compaired between the MF AMS35i and the Luxman?
I really like to join your club...however seems like price around here is too high.
Hi Mute and welcome to the forum, and hopefully the exclusive 35 Club.........to which a Luxman will also give you honorary membership.
I'm afraid I have not compared these two amps so can't help.
MF don't sell a lot of these amps, so bargain hard.
Be warned, this amp has a way of getting under your skin and becoming addictive.
Hi Mute and welcome.
Whereabouts are you?
If you are able to get hold of an Accuphase
E550 Class A, would also be worth a listen.
Accuphase E350 amp, Electrocompaniet EMC1UP CDP, Siltech 25th Classic anniversary 330I XLR Harbeth Super HL5 on Sound Anchor Quod ELS63 stands, Chord Odessey2 speaker cable. Grado SR60 headphones.
I live in Tel-Aviv, they tax us like crazy around here... Heard about the Accuphase but it should cost more or less the same as the MF.
Anyway tomorrow I should probably teturn the demo unit to the dealer, and begin two negotiation sessions, with the dealer about the price and with my wife to allow me buying the amp...
Indeed addictive staff. If the Luxman will give me a golden ticket to your club, I may go for it, but to be at the decision making forum , I will try getting the MF first. I could not believe it controlled the 1028be better than the 200w m6i, which sounds ok too, but the ams takes the sound sideways converting my focal to B&W-like sound
Nice talking to you folks,
Though it pains me to say it, I would probably get the Luxman if its a lot cheaper, as it will also sound wonderful.
In case you haven't seen it, here is a good review (also mentions Accuphase): http://www.audiodrom.cz/en-version/314.html
I hope you stick around and let us know what happens.
