I believe Norm over at Headsave will ship internationally. HeadRoom does, I believe Todd the Vinyl Junkie will, and I will as well.

JMT, I would like to buy it internationally (in fact I did ask headsave about it) but worry about the tax imposed on the electronic products. Sometimes the import tax here could be crazy.

You can also check Meier Audio which makes great amps. They also sell cables and headphones. The prices include worldwide shipping and customer service is excellent.

zenz,

Head-fiers are from all over. Do some searches in the forums and you will find discussions posted about which vendors ship internationally. You will also find lots of information about strategies for minimizing duties. Lots of head-fiers buy used equipment from each other in the for sale forums. Sellers will often indicate if they prefer to sell locally. (CONUS means continental U.S.)

Hey knuxed, glad to meet you here (see you often in lowyat.net too

). In fact, I've already asked the edifier fella, they said their amp is still out of stock, so no luck for now. I know one of the shop in ly is selling x-can v3 (hope I never spell it wrongly), but it's out of my budget and I heard it isn't that good.
