Nice - certainly one can see its a real DIY project
I was just hoping to pull out a few $$ to move the project from the workshop to the living room!
Thanks,
Nic

Thanks, btw it sounds very good maybe the best I ever have had. I use BNC connectors instead of the usual Cinch connectors. Very cheap 75 ohms cable that I wish to upgrade in the near future.

Yes - No shipping to Italy because of lost packages in the past.

Unfortunately it is well-known that the Italian post system sometimes is not too reliable. A lot of eBay sellers clearly state that they do not ship to Italy because of bad experiences.

This is really a shame for the Italian citizens. Hm, what to do? Will it help if the package can be shipped via DHL, UPS or similar? I haven´t checked the shipping cost - maybe it will be too high?

However, you might be lucky that the seller is willing to use one of the mentioned companies when shipping to Italy. It might be more relaible than the Italian post/mail system (?).

PS! NicMac. If you are coming to Denmark (Christmas???) maybe you can have the package sent to Denmark. If possible, I will be happy to help you in this matter.

The Italian post system is not that bad. I did not yet loose anything and as a audio DIY'ist I had a lot of stuff shipped from all over the world
The problem is the customs. Everything coming from the orient is opened controlled and assigned a "statistical" value. This takes a very long time and often make it cost quite a bit more in the end. It is like there is some unofficial trade barrier policy against packages/products coming from the orient. From the US everything passes quite smoothly and the customs rely on the declared value.
Thanks,
Nic

P.S. Thanks for your offer but I have my family in Denmark to help me out. Should you need my help for something down here just drop me a line;-)

Yes - I will. It looks like good value and I already have the (unboxed) transport.

This morning I ordered the kit (i.e. paid by PayPal) with shipment to my address in Denmark. I added another 45$ to the 480$ price to get faster "EMS" delivery. Citation: "The EMS shipping cost need add US$45.00 (will take about 6 to 10days to arrive)". For a 10% increase in price a 1000% faster delivery time seems worth it!
Let's wait and see.
