But no, I’m reffering to the taxes and import fees (I shouldn’t have written customs), for the businesses to getting the products imported to their store.
If we look at a danish store (which I prefer to use, to support stores in my own country, and to listen to the product before purchase), they’re around 1700 DKK. Converted to USD, that’s around 271$
If we look at Meze’s own website, I have to pay 219 euros (that’s including shipping). That’s around 260$
It’s a known fact that HiFi in the US, is cheaper than HiFi in the EU, with the exception of a few brands.
Looking at the german Amazon though, I can see that they’re 189 euros with free shipping, so maybe I should try them, just to see if they can beat my modded MMX 300
