I'm pretty broke this month as well. Spent just shy of £2000($3100).

 

Ouchie. Glad I live in a capitalist country then :D. Probably mostly from customs and fees, that's what I got from reading the toxic cables appreciation thread atleast. Apparently if you buy the HE-6 from the U.S. and ship it over, by the time you pay all the fees it's more expensive than the UK pricing.

Either way it's utterly killed my enthusiasm for Audeze and Hifiman.

Direct $ to £ ratio. So the $995 LCD2 is $1545.

 

Putting that into context, I calculate the import cost at £835/$1300 with a 20% VAT and 2% customs duty.

Pretty much every package I've got from Asia (that had tracking, the exception of which being my friend's 4As which went through Alaska) have come through California. Iirc my cd from Japan went to HK, then to LA, then up to Seattle, then Portland, then to my little hole in the wall town...

Seems like TTVJ imported these from china... Half the manual is chinese and all the markings on the cardboard box were chinese. Makes me slightly worried about quality.

The HE500 is made in China no matter who sells it?

So far I'm really liking the game. The artwork is great but the 3D models still have the infamous Nintendo DS "jaggies" if that matters to you (I don't mind it). I haven't played too much of it yet though (just about an hour's worth), so I can't give you a solid answer as to whether it's worth getting the 3DS. I'm also buying The Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time from a friend, so those two games alone will make it worth it, for me, to get the 3DS. The 3D effect does take some time to get used to and you really do have to have the 3DS directly in front of you for the full-depth 3D.

If you're a big Fire Emblem fan, I think this is a great game in the series. It's got Path of Radiance/Radiant Dawn's 3D-ish battle map and battle animations, Sacred Stone's world map, and classic Fire Emblem strategy gameplay. The dialogue seems to be more engaging so connecting to characters will be easier if that's your thing (kind of reminds me of Tales of Symphonia).

Hmm that sounds interesting. Nah i'm not that "invested" emotionally in most of nintendo's core franchises.
