Mine landed last week and I paid Bax today. I thought I would just post the exact amounts as I could never find these out myself, and took a bit of a punt on the duty etc. (but held off for some time worrying about it). So anyone using that as an excuse not to hit the buy button can't any more PC+20-39, 3m cable and SPL meter $911.95 = £505.39 Shipping $135 = £74.81 this plus above item are paid to SVS Duty £24.20 VAT £101.47 Deferrment (?) £20 these three are paid to Bax Total of bottom four £220 Also Bax charges 3% of the last three, which you pay them directly, if you pay them by credit card, or nothing for cash or debit card. I am guessing the $ amount shows on the pack and customs used a different fx rate which is why VAT is not exactly 17.5% of any other number there. Don't understand duty (thought it was 3%) but who cares my sub is nearly here now .Other than that, initially had some hassle buying as my card (Mastercard) was bounced and then slow answering a security enquiry from SVS. But I have to say it was pretty painless and SVS were quite available for the odd question I had. Obviously if you don't buy cable and SPL meter the duty and VAT should go down accordingly.
