    AlsyVox Botticelli with external crossovers

    AlsyVox Botticelli with external crossovers

    I don't know who does your checking but this is factually incorrect. There is no import duties of 5% - there is a fee that ranges from $33.00 AUS to $192.00 AUS - there is GST of 10% on the landed cost freight inclusive. I live in AUS & have imported HiFi equipment from around the world for over...

    AlsyVox Botticelli with external crossovers

    Your statement about AUS import duties & taxes is not correct. GST is 10% plus a small Customs Fee. It is significantly cheaper than the EU for example. All other variances - after exchange rate calculations - are solely due to importer & reseller increased profit margins. As no stock of most...

    Diesis dipole

    Presentation - presentation - presentation. Investing in the flight cases is a pittance compared to the price of the speakers - BUT - the presentation on arrival compared to cardboard or cheap HD boxes - in my opinion - makes a world of difference. Well done Diesis Audio - you guys get it.

    Hi - what are your thoughts or experience using carbon fibre as a 'noise eliminator" - eg - "carbon fiber braid, was chosen for its "better shielding properties than copper and aluminum", because it does not generate a magnetic field and does not create eddy currents in it, distorting the useful...
