Hello,

I'm looking to buy a MiniDSP SHD. I'm based in the UK but will be happy to pay for postage from the EU.

Please get in touch!

Thanks,

Harry

Hi Harry,
I’m UK too.

It’s a pretty good USD to GBP exchange rate at the moment. I’m considering buying direct from miniDSP. Have you had a look at what it will cost you once import duties etc are added? Might be worth the extra for warranty/ peace of mind.

Edit p.s. when I bought my 2x4HD (now upgraded to ddrc24) direct I got a Santander zero credit card which doesn’t charge a foreign transaction fee and bought in dollars.

Hey,

Yes I did check and it came out at around £1150 which wasn't too bad, less than I thought, so am considering that also.

Thanks for the tip on exchange rate and card.

Pretty keen to get my hands on one of these!

Actually that price was based on importing from the US. I've now realised they're based in Hong Kong, and I assume ship from there too?

This lowers the tax which is great, comes out at £1090 by one calculator.

Hi yes that’s right. Off the top of my head Duty was ~4% then add 20% VAT. Oh then there is an annoying fedex charge of £12 for them dealing with customs on your behalf. Grrr.

I work it out as about £1050 so suppose it will be somewhere between that and the £1090 you calculated.

The magic number for me when I’ve said I’ll buy regardless is if the exchange rate gets to $1 = £0.68 that would make the final bill £1000. Come on Boris get the UK moving first let later get that pound stronger!

Btw when I took out the zero credit card you were getting 12months interest free credit so able to pay back in instalments which might help the decision.
