    Our dryer was only around $1000, which any tumble dryer should be (they are extremely simple - a heating element, and a belt-driven tumbler) so I wonder if I can find a condenser for $2000 or so...
    Was your dryer second hand? I don't think you can find them in HK for that cheap. ANyway, condensor dryers are usually from Europe, and generally quite expensive. You can have a look on the fortress website to get an idea of the list price of them.

    Nope, bought it at DSC a few years ago. Brand is Fisher Paykel. They had one with a timer, and one with an auto-dryer (senses the dampness and turns off, I guess) for a little bit more.

    tumbler dryers are extremely basic, there's no reason for them to be more than $1000
