I also sold Tim a set of L3000, these balanced with APS V2 cable. Very good communication, prompt payment and an all round great guy. Highly recommended.
Dealing with UPS on this shipment on the other hand was not a pleasant experience. The fee was around $380 for second day guaranteed. Once the phones got to the US there was however a problem. When I booked the shipment on the UPS site I got told that I had to do a commercial invoice for the phones due to the high value and the site helped me prepare this and then told me to put 3 signed copies in the address pouch. What I was not told was that prior to pickup I also had to fax a copy to UPS and this was the reason for the halt up which resulted in the delivery taking another day. When I called UPS to claim the money-back since they did not live up to the guarantee they said they could not do that as I had not done the paperwork properly, but how could I when they don't tell me that I have to. The reply: "Not our problem, you need to know this yourself when sending something". And then when they are being delivered to Tim he is charged another $200 in "brokerage fees" on top of the $380 that has already been paid. We have no idea what that is but does seem outrageous.
