Today I ordered a new 800 at amazon.com for $407 including shipping.  I was
shocked to see the price.  Has this been their price for a while?

I saw that too.  It sure made me feel like an idiot spending about $500 this
summer to get one from them.  I was shocked by the price.  Is this a sign
that perhaps the 800 is going away soon?  Maybe to make way for the elusive
900?

ANON,

Currently the three-four main eBay Sellers have 'fixed' the "PRICE" of
"New-in-the Box" Grundig Satellit 800M at $350.  Plus $20 for Shipping
and Handling.
- Due to this 'jack-up' eBay Price.  
- - Most of these GS800M's are Bidding Out with a single (1) Bid.  
- - - Timing your eBay Bid for the last hour of bidding
- - - - Plus "Only Bidding Once" can Save You Money.

Concerning the Grundig Satellit 800M and Grundig Satellit 900:

GS900 - The Grundig Satellit 900 is by design a 'large size portable
radio' in the tradition of the GS500 and GS700 Grundig radios.  These
radios have features that designed to 'fit' the portable radio Market
with a Target Price.  It is a "Niche" product within the Grundig Radio
Line.

GS800M - The Grundig Satellit 800M is by design a 'large size table
top radio' in the tradition of the GS600 and GS650 Grundig radios.
These radios have features that are designed to 'fit' the table top
radio Market with a Target Price.  It is a "Niche" product within the
Grundig Radio Line.

FWIW:  Tecsun/Grundig/Eton have many products that each have selected
features (product niche) that are offered at various target prices.

TBD - Grundig Satellit 900 {Portable}
CY-2000 - Grundig Satellit 800M {Table Top}
CY-2000 - Grundig Classic 960
CY-1998 - Grundig Yacht Boy 400 PE
Grundig Yacht Boy 300 PE
CY-2003 - Grundig Yacht Boy 550 PE
CY-2003 - Grundig S350
Grundig G2000A
CY-2003 - Grundig G1000A
Grundig FR200
Grundig Mini 100 PE
Grundig eTraveler VII
CY-2003 - Grundig M300PE Mini World

IMHO:  The Grundig Satellit 800M {Table Top} will be 'replaced' in
CY-2005/6 by the Grundig Satellit 1000 "DRM" {Table Top}.  The
GS1000-DRM will be an up-graded GS800M with a built-in "Digital Radio
Mondiale" (DRM) reception processor, a 'New Generation' of
"Multi-Mode" Full Coverage AM/FM/SW Receiver.
