Hi,
Thanks for organising this group buy!

I would go for a pair of JP 2.0.

The question is how much will be the shipping cost to my country from you (to Poland).

95$ with shipping cost for a piece is a good price ,but for anyone exept you the cost is 95$ plus shipping cost.

I was looking for a dealer who is going to send me the tweeters with no value/no insurance on them (as a gift) ,and found the one.Madisound refused to ship this way but i found another dealer which is called OREGONDY (http://www.oregondv.com/index.html ).They are going to ship them to me for 15$.

I don't agree that the shipping from America is more expensive than inside the Europe.I found Europe shipping costs to be more expensive then shipping from the States and the prices in the Sates are usually lower.One just have to find the proper way to omit taxes and duties.

So a piece of JP 2.0 from you is 95$ and a piece from Oregondy is 118$...not a very big diffrance to me,being honest.

Now,I wonder how much would be shipping them from you to Poland? If more then 15$ I doubt this will be any beneficial for me.

I would be still in for a pair,just would like to know the shipping cost.

All Best

Bartek

Hi Bartek,

the shipping cost for a pair of Jp2.0 (approx. 2.5 kg) from Switzerland to Poland is 38 CHF (approx. 30$):

Shipping costs from Switzerland

All in all, taking part in this group buy would save you approx. 30$. The choice is yours...

Cheers,

Bruno

this guy has a great deal on the 2.0 also -$100 ea.- I think because I pointed out the prices they are available at in the US.
Have you contacted him? He might be interested in the group buy.

Fountek True Ribbon Transducer

The 3.0 isn't as great a deal- but I'll bet he would lower the price-
if someone mentioned the madisound price.
I didn't mention that the price of the 3.0 is also too high because I didn't want to annoy him because I'm not getting any anyway.

I have no connection and no knowledge of his reliability ,etc.....

Well, as I said it is necessary to put together a group buy for at least 20 pcs., but until now the reaction has not been overwhelming...
Anyway, I am leaving in an hour or so for a business trip until the end of the week, and I do not think I will have a regular access to the net until Friday evening, so I would say that the best thing will be to wait until then and see how the situation develops...

Cheers,

Bruno

Well, looks like not many people are interested... the response to this group buy has been quite disappointing, to say the least

Any thought/suggestion?

Cheers,

Bruno

Hi all,

given the almost-equal-to-zero interest in this group buy, I decided to cancel it...
My apologies to the two people who have shown a real interest...

Cheers,

Bruno
