This is what put me off ordering direct - from the FAQ:
"Do you ship outside the United States?
Seems to imply that if you are in the UK they wouldn't ship. If I hadn't found an alternative I would have gone ahead and tried anyway but I wouldn't have tried to find an alternative if that FAQ answer hadn't been there...
But audiophonics looks good. I can see a few orders going their way from me. Are you on commission?
I don't think it implies that they won't ship. I think what it means is that if you have a problem and you bought direct then you would need to send it back to them for repair and not to the UK distributor.
