Hello Michael,

first, the 346 AX has been replaced by JT-346-ATX with dual

then, there is penalty duty on nearly most stuff coming from the USA:
because of the trade war between USA and EU, where the USA does
illegal subventions to their local steel industrie, the European
have established a penalty duty in mid 2004. Most goods coming from
USA are subject, only music CDs, vinyl and some other goods are
not affected.
The penalty duty was 15% in January, and increases each month for
1%, until the USA eventually stops their illegal behaviour.
So, if you are importing hifi from USA, you have to pay normal import
duties (app. 5% for hifi), then above mentioned penalty duty 
(16% for February), and at the end 16% VAT.

best regards,
