Hi Hartmut, all,
thanks for your info about the penalty duty.
Well, I did not know about that trade war between EU and US. If this
penalty duty is actually charged (16% in February 05 and 17% in March -
it will not be further increased after March according to the EU
directive) it does IMHO not make too much sense to order the Jensen
trannies from the States now.
Probably Daniel will report after receiving his Fostex, whether he was
charged any additional duties.
In the meantime I got a reasonable offer from a list member for a pair
of 346 AX, and i decided to order the pair from him.
If anybody wants to take over organizing the group order, now or later,
I will supply the email addresses of those who have shown interest so
far (5 pairs, but some still unconfirmed).
... and BTW Bennie's price seems not so bad.
Regards from Berlin ... Michael
