I will be responsible for on whom I pull the trigger
Schiit products get import duty in India. Vali 130$ shipped + 60$ Import tax
O2 has lesser/no chances of Import tax because its a DIY job
E12 comes from Hong Kong, declared as gift
HD600's too have risk of import duty, but I am sure FedEx guys will handle it well
I love living in the USA, we hate taxes and the politicians know it.
In my bag of toys is a FiiO E12. It sounds very good and can drive an HD600 (got that too) very well. I understand that at this point you can't spend too much, so don't let any audio snobs get you down. I use the E12 when commuting or in the backyard or out of the house. It sounds very good. It's built well too, metal case. There's no reason why you can't use it at home as well.
