quote from our store

We use fulfillment centers in both the USA and Europe, although newer things are usually stocked in the USA first.

I don't know how it will be with chassis stuff

Yes but don't forget VAT. After you pay the vat it will be about the same

They pay taxes in the US, or don't they?

The pricing should work out that it is cheaper and faster to get it wherever is closest to you. There will no doubt be some anomalies when you take into consideration location and jurisdiction. If you are in the EU or close to Italy you can purchase directly from them - just go to any product page and click the "Europe" button where you pick the warehouse. It will give you instructions on how to get a quote (and that system will be improved when I get a little time). If you are in the EU VAT region, Hifi2000 will need to charge you VAT. On the plus side, you won't have to wait weeks for your package to get through customs, pay inspection fees and then get charged VAT anyway.

The US does not have a national sales tax or VAT, but most states do.

When you buy anything you'll have to pay EU vat at arrival plus any import taxes your country might have( this unusually doesn't apply to consumer products but only big bulk orders) so taking the 399$ enclosure as example we get:

With shipping to Portugal it's 533$ and at today's Exchange rate would be 412€ plus vat at 23% goes up to 506€.

That said, I just realised that ordering individual parts for a pesante dissipante enclosure at modushop will be cheaper than ordering the enclosure itself! One just needs to find some L shaped aluminum for inner bracing and this saves me around 50€/70Usd in the case.
Of course this only applies to the non drilled ones!

I'm not suggesting we import exported chassis back into Europe.

I am observing that the ex factory price is more expensive than the exported to the US price.

The Forum has given US Members the opportunity to buy locally and for European Members to buy nearly locally.

Because for export they don't charge VAT. So if you take 20%of the case price it will come to just under 400usd.

I doubt that
maybe you have looked at iron parts instead of alu
also note that some have 4 heatsinks per box

I'd be surprised if the parts were less than packaged product, you might like to double check the size and also steel versus aluminum. Note also that our "standard" 4U/5U has "maximally vented" covers for the best possible internal cooling, and thus isn't the same as Hifi2000's "standard" model which has regular venting. Also, while Modu's packaging is already very good, all our products have been "super duper" packed as a practical insurance against anything that might go wrong during during sea freight or shipment out from our fulfillment center (Andrea tells me they did a 1 meter drop test on this packaging format and it passed with flying colors). The extra metalwork and extra packaging adds a bit to the price. FYI any of our SKUs that has a dash and a letter after it differs from the standard Hifi2000 product that shares the rest of the SKU.

What I saying and tis a bit off topic is that for people in Europe ordering standard enclosures, not the diyaudio ones, is that is is cheaper to buy separate parts.
Example: 5U dissipante all aluminum. Price 210
Price for separates, using the beefier iron DFB base, all the rest aluminum: 184.70
Saving an extra 25 which covers shipping in Europe. This said, I believe the diyaudio cases are great and might actually use me for an f5t build!
