Where to buy Clarion in Canada?

Im looking for a deck: http://www.onlinecarstereo.com/CarAudio/ProductDetail.aspx?ProductID=21342

They are an authorized retailer. I know its a refurb, that doesnt bother me. Can anyone/will anyone match this in CDN funds do you think? Im pretty set on this or the 75

I know that Audiotronic sells them out west, don't know if you have one locally or not.

Shamus Customz carries Clarion. Give James a call.

http://www.shamuscustomz.com/contact.html

Also, factor in freight and potential duty cost. I bought a deck from Onlinecarstereo.com three years ago. Fast shipping, good service but got hit with a $100 duty/brokerage fee.

I checked a couple local places and they wouldnt sell refurbs or match the american pricing from authorized retailers.

Anyways I found on ebay a Clarion DXZ575USB (msrp 299.95) for 89.99$ clearance BNIB.

Doesnt have time alignment but has 24 bit d/a, 6v preouts, parametric eq, hp/lp filters, front USB input, etc

Be ready for the brokerage charges, import taxes and extra shipping when it lands at your door as well.

None. It is shipping USPS as a gift I made sure. Ive never paid duty from the US shipping this way.

UPS is when you get dinged or Fedex.

Also marking the item as "Commercial sample" works.

My entire system for the last 5 years has been composed of stuff from the US only.
