I just noticed this comment, because of NAFTA very rarely is duty charged on items coming across the border from the US, with all the things I've bought on Head-Fi I think I may have paid duty once or twice but that would be on items coming from other than the US like China. Alberta may not have to pay any provincial sales tax but they should still have to pay all other charges like GST and brokerage. Prince Edward Island is like this, at least until the new year when HST goes into effect, for whatever reason PST is not applied to packages from outside of Canada so until HST goes into effect here next year we only pay 5% GST and whatever brokerage and, in rare cases, duty that are applied. It's going to hurt having to pay an extra 9%.

I was perhaps wrong calling it duty rather than just customs or tax. I have probably been charged 40-50 times ordering things or receiving gifts from relatives in the US.

It's a rare shipment from the US that I don't pay tax and brokerage fees on.

13 years ago I sent my fiance in Montreal a $10 laser pen with the various tips that said I love you and other things. I valued it $50 for insurance purposes. She had to pay $25 to pick it up.

I'd like to know what case people are using if any for when they travel? As the one heir sends looks kind of big. Thanks.

For now, the iPhone 5 and Macbook Pro will have to do. 

 

What DACs are y'all using with your Heir?

 

 

Using HeadStreamer II out of my laptop (foobar2000) into a Class A CMOY amp.

 

On the portable side, I have a Rocoo BA and Studio (in for repair) and a Galaxy S II (Neutron and PowerAmp).

Well in an attempt to get this thread back on track.....I have been listening to the 8a's for a couple of days now and they sound absolutely fantastic.

For those of you that didn't go the expedited route, how long did the production process take.  In other words, I got an email last week that they had received my impressions and would be starting production, so how much longer should I be expecting before I get the happy email with a picture of my new 4.A's.  I am a patient person but I like to know how long a wait should be so I can keep my expectations realistic.

I think we should put this at the beginning of the thread as this seems to be asked at least once a page at this point. Customs take anywhere from 3 to 6 weeks to make, depending on how busy the manufacturer is. Mine took about four but they've gotten busier since then.

Depends on how busy they are. I think it is generally 4-6 weeks. Please correct me if I am wrong.
