Buying gear in Austraila (part two)

Howdy,

You said: "I'll be in Australia and due to shipping costs I should probably buy new there instead of shipping used from the US"

Indeed, shipping from the USA will cost a lot, and there will probably be some surprise customs charges on top. When shopping online, double the item cost for stuff <20 kg and forget about anything heavier.

I didn't notice if you said whether you are happy to DIY. If yes, some local companies worth looking at are:

Cannonsound - currently have 15" coaxials, 15" neos and other items on special. Good service. They recently sent me big 2" throat Selenium horns, by courier, for just $20.
Azura - horn builder (WA). He has answered my queries in the past, seems to make good gear and to be a business worth supporting. My 60cm round horn was influenced by his AH-340.
Etone - have a pair of reconed 18" Celestions for $500, other goodies

Finally: if you are in or near Melbourne for a while, I'm currently keen to sell on some surplus components (horns and such).
