The price differential between an R-13 and Festival was about the
same here in the States, too - I think it was $700.00 for the Bb and
$750.00 for the A (this is the differennce I _paid_, not the difference
in list price. I think the list for the Festivals was around $5000.00
each - and you can get a pair for very close to that cost.)
