    One of our regular contributors,IpodStudio,made an offer some time ago to let members of this forum know when he was arranging a group buy for the above headphone amps.

    I think the purpose of the post was to inform readers of a group buy,and not which site has the most information.
    Since Head-Fi is a large and well established site,it's inevitable that it has a larger database of info available to it.

    I didn't link to "more info amp-wise". That statement was in passing.

    Can someone please explain why the price has gone up by 24 Euros? Postage and packing isn't that much, surely??

    Thats something you'll have to direct to Ipodstudio,if you're referring to his offer.

    I understand that,and since there are now two readily available sources for these amps,both at the same price obviously,then readers can choose which if any they want to use.

    It's hardly competition in terms of sourcing,but a nice offer from Meier.

    Hi Guys, yep, it's the shipping, packaging and Paypal fees. Head-Fi hasn't yet posted shipping costs. The amps are being shipped bulk to me here in S. Spain and from here I ship them out to everyone who's ordered. International airmail is not cheap, I'm afraid and neither is packaging. That said, I'm slightly suspicious of the price I found on the POs internet site (my Spanish is not perfect;)), so I'm going to double check down at my local PO on Monday. I'll post in the thread at IS and should the price be any lower then I'll refund the difference to anyone who's already paid.
    No-one's taking a penny profit on these, it's done totally for the fun of it. I could send them cheaper via land and sea but waiting 6 weeks for delivery is not an option for most folks...:)
    I'll keep ya informed..:smashin:

    Exactly. There's no competition here at all..:D LOL! No-one's making anything off them. The more that are ordered from me, the more work I get to do, not normally something I refer to as an advantage.
    Seriously, though, you're more than welcome to order from either one of us. Either way you'll be taken care of, I'm sure. :smashin:

    extremelydodgy, the ipod studio is not another version of head-fi, we specialise in portable audio and diy, so our theme and direction is quite different, as is our content. However, it's inevitable that our subject matter paths often meet due to similar equipments being used.

    Folks, the charges for postage appear to be correct after a quick trip to the PO. :smashin:
