PriceJapan ordering question

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hey all,

 

Trying to order a SRS-2170 system through Pricejapan for the first time. So I'm not familiar with the whole ordering process although from all the feedbacks I do feel confident in the site itself. However, just want to make sure I'm doing everything right here...

 

So I've done the automatic price quote, and got the total price after everything. Then I filled out the order form and sent it to their email, and got an email back right away outlining the order, but that was it. 

 

At this point, do I go ahead and pay to their paypal address?  Or do I have to wait for some kind of response from them first? Wasn't sure of this next step.  I've read that you can request for lowered customs value, should I do that on the Paypal payment comment?

 

What is the typical turnaround time from them? Is about a week's wait time a reasonable expectations?

 

Thanks in advance.

I bought my first Fostex th600 thru PJ
Once I got the email, i paid via Paypal plus fees and they took another day or two to ship . I received item about a week after shipment to US
Value declared was low but I do not remember the exact amount

One thing to point out is- warranty might not be offered on items thru here since they are only providing a service
Sennheiser offers worldwide coverage but other companies might have their rules, at least this is my understanding, I could be wrong

Thanks for the response. I've made the payment through Paypal, hopefully they ship it off soon.

 

As for the warranty, IIRC the warranty would still be vaild in Japan, and I'd have to go through PriceJapan for any warranty claims.  Potentially costly due to shipping fees involved, but from what I've read for Stax in particular, the Stax distributor in North America, Yamas, is apparently a headache to deal with anyway and many users get it serviced elsewhere anyway... so I think I should be good.

PM coming your way
another option is to order via Amazon Japan, thanks to another member's help

If one orders through Amazon Japan site I'm guessing you'll get hit by customs charges, as they (Amazon) will declare the full value of what you pay for the headphones on their mailing info when posting out the item!!!
