communications re-established, shes never shipped a piece of gear before and as it turns out doesn't have the locking screws so it can't be shipped anyways :(

If somebody plans on driving from Montreal towards north bay and can facilitate purchase and transport of unit I would be forever indebted to you!! :)

Have you checked kijiji for people heading your way looking for passengers to share costs? I did this once to have a radio delivered from New Brunswick. Worked well. Paid the price of a passenger and she was still able to have passengers since the radio went into the back of her wagon.

Same here, did it twice Montreal to Audio Eden when they were in Newmarket to pick up my Jadis pre amp and, years ago, my Naim 250. Its a long drive but doable same day if you are really really motivated.

Six hours? No big deal when it comes to getting better sound!

Hi bolly

Contact me via PM or via email at ants AT iants.net. I live close to that area and will be coming to Toronto in a couple of weeks. If you can meet me, then I might be able to help.

Cheers
Ants

Planning the same trip to see Robert and Mike at Audio Eden to pick up some speaker stands and will also drop in to see Steve at Hi Fi Fo Fum but will probably try to spend a day or two.

Like I said.....not that far of a drive. How bad do you want it? I bet I've driven farther for much less. Leaf Tickets. :lol:

The farthest I've driven was 3 hours one way for my Acoustat 2+2's. It was definitely worth it. Perhaps the kijiji seller would agree to pay for half of the gas ($100)?
