This is actually good news for the consumer - it means that SD do not inflate the prices so the dealer makes a massive margin and then discounts it into the ground.
It means that SD have a sensible margin for dealers who then sell at a sensible price - and likely no more than if the price had been inflated and discounted.
There are quite a few professional equipment manufacturers who prefer to keep their equipment out of Thomann.
