    CANADA and EU LOANER

    • Open to friends and contributors on a case by case basis but do not be shy to ask
    • Insure for $1900
    • 5-10 days per person (3 iem’s means you get more time)
    • Post impressions in my Soranik thread here
    • SBAF will cover initial shipping to EU or Canada, you will have to come together to pay for rerun shipping to the US
    • Sufficient interest is needed, at least 4 people I think
    • Post your location if interested thank you
    CANADA

    Potentially interested in Canada (Vancouver); thanks @rhythmdevils , @tranhieu , and SBAF for the offer to cover incoming shipping.

    Guesstimating dimensions & weight: UPS Standard from Vancouver to CA (if that's where they'd return?) is showing $CAD 107 for that coverage amount, not bad if shared around. It's internal postage that might determine interest though: from Vancouver to Toronto, Canada Post with that coverage amount is $CAD 83.

    Will await interest from the usual suspects - >$1000 means maybe only @Rockwell ;)

    We could also just do one of the Bastille iems. They are the best.

    I'm interested, Vancouver Island, BC. I also have reputable Head Fi friends here on the Island as well as in Vancouver who may be interested if that's an option.

    The thing is that SBAF Is responsible for the iems if something should happen to them. So it just doesn’t really work to include head-fiers.

    I missed this announcement for some reason. I just checked their facebook page and I see they are based in Vietnam. I feel obligated to join this to support them

    I am a bit reluctant at the prices I am seeing though because I'm worried about navigating the VAT swamp to make sure I'm not paying taxes on a loaner.

    My father is from Vietnam. I never learned any vietnamese though but I have a strong connection with the culture.

    That's a nice surprise. I guess he went overseas during the war.

    Hope VAT will work out for you.
