    This can be billed days, weeks after receipt. But at least you can pay it online, although sometimes your need to collect the item at the Depot and pay before they hand it over.
    Yeah I've had quite a few things from Japan. The re-packers I use usually do a good job on the invoice and last time I paid a very small sum in fees to get the H-Z1 MC head amp, here's hoping for the same again!

    Very few units in that series made it to Europe at the time sadly.

    Blimey 60w class A amps putting out 0.3w of sound, must get pretty toasty.

    Do you have much room treatment Wayne ?

    Yes it gets warm!

    No room treatment required as the Avantgardes have enough adjustment to the bass subs and the horn crossover that you can get them sounding great in almost any room - mine are stuffed into corners for example.
