I've driven to Chcago twice to get a great deal on Martin Logans and JL audios - 9 hours each way - saved over $10k on Toronto used prices - 6 hoirs from North Bay , thats a day trip , if it was worth buying it's worth the drive.

And the nice thing about picking it up yourself is not having to worry about some guerilla drop kicking your item.

Yes, I fondly remember getting out of my car at the shipping office just in time to see the guy bouncing a refrigerator dolly down a flight of concrete steps with my ModWright KWA150 strapped to it. :(

Hi bolly

Contact me via PM or via email at ants@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

Hey Bolly

My pleasure. Glad I was able to help. Now the more challenging part is getting it to you via another CAM member who travels to TO on a regular basis or perhaps a Toronto based CAM member is driving to the Montreal Audio Fest this coming week?
