Not too high if you look around. 950 USD and up it seems.

Some at fantasy prices. Ah well.

Any news on the reason for Wavecrest disaperance? I haven't seen any 
real news on being bought or folding... althought I would not be 
surprised about the later.

They are still current, so it does not match the hobby folks, but quite 
nice. As always there is something to wish for, but that is what I 
always nag about. The live update graph mode is very useful. A Zoom 
feature and cursored read-out (as well as delta-cursors) would be nice, 
but that is left out for the TimeView software.

You might have better success with finding them rebranded as Fluke. This 
is a result of the old Fluke-Philips cooperation.
Look for Fluke PM 6690.
