    Hi all!
    Been reading these forums for a while, and decided it was time to start posting. I'm looking to join the SVS owners club very shortly after all the praise they've received on these forums. I was just wondering if any Canadian SVS owners could tell me approximately how much duty (if any) they had to pay to get their sub to Canada?
    Thanks for the info, can't wait to feel the bass [​IMG]

    I think it costed around $1300 (everything included) to ship to southern Ontario.

    There is no duty on Consumer electronics (I think speakers fall into that category). Just tax. PST & GST, oh wait HST in your case.

    I'm lucky, I work in the US... ship to work, I handle the importing. UPS charges too high of a "brokerage" fee.

    A 2039 PCPlus is $825 US = $1286 CDN
    HST = $1286 x 0.15 = $193 CDN
    Shipping is $67 US = $104 CDN
    UPS Brokerage Fee approx $40 CDN
    Total Shipped to N.B.= $1623 CDN
    Rule of thumb = price of the item x2.
    This would be a safe number. You can get a Paradigm Servo-15 for approx. $1400 CDN or less. Which is the better sub?..your guess is as good as mine [​IMG]

    David's right. No duty. My brokerage fee from UPS was $55CAN however. Don't know if SVS has found any alternate shipper for us Canucks or not, probably not a big enough demand. Great subs and customer service too.

    Good luck.

    Hi Adam,
    Here is a link to an older thread where I listed the charges for bringing my SVS sub into Canada (just scroll down 'til you hit my post on the page). This was back in April of last year.
