Where's the Canadian Distributor?

I originally called Hsu and they gave me a place local to Winnipeg that was supposed to be opening soon where I could buy one... I haven't been able to track the place down, now they suggest ordering from American Sound of Canada (wow, like the "of Canada" doesn't sound tacked on!) in Ontario.

Here's the place that I found in Ontario. I don't know if there are other distributors. I emailed them today but have not heard back from them as of yet.

Joe,

I bought my VTF3MK2 from Homedigitalav.com. Price was quite fair, service was excellent (delivered to my door in Toronto by the fella who runs the company). Best of luck, sir. I'm sure you'll love the STF-3. Say, what are the dimensions of your room? Cheers.

Dave.

Dave,

My HT is situated in the shorter leg of an "L" shaped area of the basement. It's about 13' x 29'; opens up to a larger area; the longer leg of the "L" shape. I'm suspecting I'll lose some significant LFE to the open area.

These guys are the actual distributor AFAIK. They can point you to a dealer or sell direct if you don't have a dealer nearby.

*hugs his PB2-Plus... or uh... PB12-Plus/2 ? I think that's it's new model number*

Anyways depending on weight (my shipping weight was 160 lb's) they'll hit with you with PST and GST, Brokerage (Because custom touches it), but NOT duty. If you get duty they are IN ERROR, as SV Subwoofers is NAFTA approved so the duty should be waved.

I think your sub is smaller though. So I think you'll go through UPS and only get a $55 CDN Brokerage fee... not to bad.

Every time you wince at the price, just remember mine was twice as much as yours

Finally - I was worried about the whole "what if it breaks?" issue, they will call you on the phone and give you instructions if need be. They only ship the broken parts, so you never (ok VERY VERY VERY rarely) have to ship them the whole subwoofer....

Finally their service is OUTSTANDING... I've gotten replies to emails sent at 5PM at like 9PM the same night...crazy bastards never sleep!

If you have any questions, PM me... (or email me at the-smurph AT rogers DOT com)

Angie the owner is great.

You may get better pricing with these guys. I got my HSU for a better deal here.

Although the VTF2 has had great reviews on here I still think it did not has good extension and depth as my Mirage Bipolar BPS150 with the 2 x 8 inch drivers. I am currently spec-ing a Reel 15 inch sub with goes down to 18 HZ and maybe get 2 of them for like $650 cdn(for 2). Or check out that new SVS sub that supposedly goes down to 16hz or 18hz. In all my sub searching the 2 best sub ever built has been the Paradigm Servo 15 Reference and a Velodyne 18 inch sub(forget which model). Although big drivers they are still great for music and they really shake without distortion (If thats possible).

Thanks Saturn... found them before... I think they were going to open up locally here - figure if it's got to travel from ON, it might as well travel from wherever Hsu is.

Starting to make the Axioms look more appealing. No hidden costs.

Bren,
I thought it was American Hi-Fi that was going to be selling SVS? Or was that HSU? I'm confused.

For anyone looking to get a ballpark # for duty/taxes, you can check out this website A&A Duty Calculator. Thanks to whomever pointed me towards this site in the first place.

Sid - not sure... just checked out their site, they seem to be on the "Dude, where's my electrons" side of the fence but would be worth a call to figure out whether or not they're local resellers.
