Dear Anil Kumar,
You are quite right.Since audio products of good quality could be imported only at exhorbitant prices,lots of home grown companies came into being-Cosmic was one with their lab 3000 and lab 5000 amp,Enbee existed in Delhi along with wood stock speakers.Norge and sonodyne continue from those days.Then speakers always meant floor standing.In fact i still possess a belt driven turntable with an sme like arm produced in poona which could give any Lin sondek a run for its money
I agree with you completely.My present amp su 8600 (Bought in the 80's) is built like a tank with big beautiful knobs and beautiful sweet sound .
Look below for picture of my amp- click on attachment.photo-0334 in manage attachments below
How do you get the amps you buy shipped from the U.S.A.? Are there any customs problems/duties when importing these amps.
I would love to buy some amps from ebay but have been worried about shipping and customs problems.
Inspite of the explosion of HT/Surround sound, there are many audiophiles who are perfectly content with good "old fashioned",stereo sound.
In fact I would hazard a guess that true Hi End consists mostly of stereo.
Hi, i got my amps through USPS, insured. Custom duty is 36%, works out very expensive, but worth the money.
Is it compulsory to pay custom duty? or is it because you got it insured tht you had to pay? because my frds order books from amazon thru usps, but havent ever paid duty.
