Sometimes that works. But sometimes it doesn't. Some companies will not honor warranties or offer support when purchases are made as you suggest.
Your are right. Accuphase USA Axiss will not touch an imported model.
I would not be concerned about a speaker so much as electronic piece of
equipment. There are always work arounds to servicing equipment.
'There are always work arounds to servicing equipment.'
Sometimes yes and sometimes no. If the company will not provide schematics or parts sometimes a piece cannot be serviced.
I do not disagree with the assertion that some importers do some price gouging especially with something that is well known and regarded. And sometimes one can go to the home country purchase and export saving themselves some money. Most of the time the pricing is correct and potential buyers that complain about the higher price in their country are simply being cheap looking for a deal they do not deserve.
One should always confirm that the maker of the gear is happy with this sort of arrangement will honor warranties and provide continuing support. If not then one is better off buying something else or paying the premium to get if from an authorized source.
