If I would have bought any Fiio product where I live (Israel), I would have to pay almost twice as much compared to its price on MP4NATION. We have a single Fiio retailer that sets the prices as high as he pleases and when he's asked to explain the difference in pricing between the local store and the prices from international retailers, he said that the import taxes are killing him. Every retailer in Israel is using the import taxes as an excuse to raise product cost and no costumer is questioning this excuse cause our government is known for its greed. What people here don't know is that the import taxes are not that high that the costumers will have to pay twice as much for the products. The real reason for the high prices is that the retailer makes a 500% profit on anything he sells. I'll be damned if a single Fiio product was sold in Israel by a local retailer. Most of the time, people that buy headphone amps and audiophile DAPs know where to got them for a fair price because from the start they cost more than an average consumer product.
im from the same place, and i never buy anything there except food and clothes :D
