  1. Further information: Purchased this from SNA 2 months ago as my first DAC/Amp. Very flexible DAC with plenty of input / output options. Perfect for starters and it's no fuss device that does your DAC and Amp as one. Powered my headphones with ease, BeyerDynamic DT990, Sennheiser HD700 and HIFIMAN Sundara. Inputs: - USB - Optical - BNC - SPDIF - XLR AES/EBU Outputs: - RCA - Balanced XLR What's included: - Matrix mini-i - Power cord Reviews: https://www.techradar.com/au/reviews/a

  3. I completely agree on supporting the locals. However, there's no stock anywhere and the usual 'stockist' has no idea when the next shipment will come at least in 2021.
  4. I've orderd the Magnius and Modius from Schiit, shipped on Friday and arrived the next Monday. Crazy fast shipping with the Fedex Prioirity, 4 days over the weekend from US of A. No GST and import duties too.
  5. I've got one and love it. Great price for a pair at this price! GLWTS
  6. It seems that the $1,000 threshold is no longer a thing and GST will be charged even for a $1 item. All my eBay items from overseas have a GST charge on it. I’m just worried that the customs will hold the item if the parcel has a commercial value and GST has not been paid.
  7. Overseas shipping are much more expensive now as a consumer because it's only limited to Courier companies like FedEX, DHL, UPS etc. These are because we have blocked all passenger flights and there's where sometimes our normal air parcels will tag to.
  8. That's a good thing! You've slipped through the crack
  9. There aren't any stocks from local retailers at the moment as they are also impacted by the expensive shipping costs?
  10. OMG that's crazy money. I read that the 10% GST, 5% and customs fees are calculate with the inclusion of the Shipping as well. Comparing the prices of importing vs local: Magni: Local = AUD$260 from A2A Import direct = AUD$238.56 [USD$174.78 ($99 + 20%)]
  11. My bad! Many apologies. It should have been FedEx and USPS. Here's a comparison of shipping one of the smallest unit from Schiit, the Magni: SHIPPING OPTIONS AVAILABLE FedEx International Economy $46.65 USPS Uninsured International $46.98 FedEx International Priority $52.31 USPS Priority International $69.98 USPS Priority Express International $93.63
  12. Initially I'm after the Jotunheim, missed out a few sales recently. While doing a bit of research, I'll probably go for the Asgard 3 & Modius stack.
  13. How much importing fees and GST were you charged? I'm trying to take advantage of the strong AUD conversion rate to buy directly from them. However, the expensive shipping and fees might not cut it.
