To my knowledge, Vector system deals with it.. you can try reaching them using the Bangalore contact details available online.

When I contacted Vector-Hyderabad, I was quoted around 85K for pair of 684 and 683 must be costing even more

i found from links that price is around $650...30K. So 20K is a big difference, this should include the import duty & shipping. But, one should consider that they get it at much lower than the MSRP of $650 from the manufacturers. Then you start wondering
Any one has any idea how much can one bargain for these? Max to pay?? I agree 52K is not happening.

You wana compare "apples to apples"? lets do it!

Speakers priced around $650 MSRP (30K). Lets see, why would someone be in the market and sell products if they dont have a profit to make. So the manufacturer is selling lower to the dealers in their country itself! From reliable sources....Profit margin 40%-50% in audio.
So any 'not so smart' Indian dealer will be able to negotiate a price around 20K and now with shipping included, means pretty much import tax exempt...negligible at most. So Lets making it a higher 30K + 13.5% tax equals ~34K. Which of course is still a higher side in my calculations!
