Thanks for your note ariesq. My experience with headphonebar was not as good as yours, so I'd rather not deal with them.
Schiit sells direct. I like that option. I'll also consider buying directly from other US sources in the future, such as Audeze.
Of course there would always be the HST to pay, but no brokerage charge to collect it if you use FedEx or UPS express shipping, and no duty on goods made in the States. That's no more painful than ordering from B.C. and probably delivered faster too ;-)
