In all honesty I was hesitant when I saw it was on Aliexpress but given FiiO is reputable company I decided, why not. Now that there's this whole fiasco I'm discouraged to even try. The X3-II is nice and all but maybe I'll just catch it in the local market or wait til its on sale. Kinda wish they'd just give WA residents a coupon code for their site to use when it goes live on Fiio.com but oh wells. :confused_face:
Yeah I paid $285 CAD shipped from Treoo. Our dollar got a little worse in the mean time. I agree about Amazon Canada being crazy over priced on some items. I can by the exact same items on Amazon.com and have them shipped to Canada cheaper than buying from Amazon.ca. Isn't that veird?
Yeah, I wouldn't worry about Fiio shipping it on a slow boat. The super-long shipping time horror stories are because people are ordering super-cheap stuff with free shipping from China. What do they expect? That's not Fiio's game - especially with their new, highly-visible product at launch!
FYI : I ordered one on Friday night, got price adjusted on Sunday night, paid for it Monday morning because of payment issues on Sunday night, payment was processed sometime on Monday and I am waiting shipment.
