    It took me a while to even find the ad, it was HEAD-Fi F/S section, but US only shipping, so yeah SoL.
    If i'm bored I look up Head-Fi, Audio-Mart (AUS/UK/US), Ebay, Gumtree, Minidisc, A2A...sometimes i check 2 or 3 times a day..LOL

    I'd stick with Ebay for decent stuff but slim pickings....best atm is LCD-3 for $1650, get a bit cheaper and price is pretty good...Focal Clear for $1800 imported.
    Jus reme that anything imported is +10% gst, and over $1000aud is +$250 on top of gst....I bought most things before the taxing so pretty happy.

    +$2000 cans.....You better know what you want coz most the time it's not worth the money, $800-$1500 gets most nice things.

    I agree with that last part: $800-1500 statement.

    Just found out Headphile is still in business.

    Only thing I want now is a dreamy smooth pair of open cans and a Oppo HA2-SE or Mojo type unit.

    LCD3 maybe?

    Thought Oppo completely discontinued there audio line and only focusing on there smartphones?

    I wouldn’t mind a fazor LCD-3 as my updated original LCD2 rev.1 sound similar to some non fazor LCD-3’s.

    A pair of aussie LCD-X came up on scambay for $1500 +2 AF cables, saw it after 1hr post...thought about it but 5hrs later were sold..was thinking/hoping you got them..:D

    I jus sent off my M1060 + JDS-o2 to my sis, she's got a big cd collection like me but has no decent system at all, like I used to, so eager to get her response.
    Either it'll blow her mind or think meh for some dumb reason.
    Worst case is they get passed down to the kids, which WILL blow their minds....they like 8 and 6 or something..IDk :lol::lol::lol:

    Nothing like $500 worth of gear to spark one's interest.
    If it's all good feedback, I might give up my akg 712 at christmas to them, that is if no one make's ME DECENT OFFER.
    I'm trolling for cheap hd600 / hd650 jus to hear them, if I hate then they get passed on to the kids....:lol::lol::lol:

    Primary school kids with a audiophile collection, what could possibly go wrong..:D

    Doubt the kids will treat em with respect, most likely it’ll be thrown around.

    Do you have a solid link on the import GST? I've been buying stuff online without having to worry about it at all.

    BURRITO-go to your EBAY, find something over $1000aud in another country, it says 10% GST may apply plus import duties may be payable.

    If you buying $5 cables from China, customs couldn't give a rats, if you're buying +2k cans from another country, be prepared for a customs letter in the mail.
    You can dodge all day, but it sucks when you have to pay $320 in taxes.

    PROPER10-10% off for 2 days.................SONY zr-1 inbound.....down into the hole I go once again.

    I thought i'd buy some of these flash new Canal-type buds, FINAL 3000.....I now call them Ear Dildos....
    They sound awesome if you don't mind having your ear canal getting rodgered by a foreign object....I leave them half out.
