I have placed an order for Buchardt Audio S-300 MKII and would like to know if I should pair them with a NAD c316bee or Emotiva A-100.

Any suggestions between the two amps?

If Emotiva, should I consider A-100 or A-300? Ordering A 100 is half the price including customs

Hey Kapeel,

I had enquired about Buchardt in August and this was their reply:

"Hi. We have so much interest from India, but we sadly can't ship there due to the very strict import rules. We are desperately looking for an company to carry Buchardt in India. If you have any ideas to who might be perfect for that, please let me know."

Kindly let me know if you have received the package. If yes, did you face any issues with custom clearance?

Regards,
Abhishek

Last when I checked, speakers were to be shipped around 15th Nov, will update once I have more details.

I have another question though, I have recently also received a pair of chord company speaker wires from UK and the customs has charged me over 42% as import duties. Does this % sound normal? I was under the impression duties as max 25%.

Regards,
Kapeel

Electronics for commercial use attracts 42%
For personal use it’s lower, but authorities have final authority to decide personal or commercial
If can meet them personally can do some Jugaad

@Smo - thanks. Are you suggesting I go to the customs office for overseas parcel and discuss once the parcel arrives in Mumbai ? As per my understanding, I cannot collect the parcel at the customs office, the courier company or India post has to deliver it.

The courier company will not deliver the parcel unless customs amount is paid. Can I dispute the customs duty after I have paid and seek a refund?

Postal Customs are at post office only
My suggestion wouldn’t work for courier
