Where can I buy BOSS in Canada?

Looking to get a 750DI without having to deal with border issues. Anyone know who deals BOSS car audio in Canada?

Thanks!

The old saying is "you get what you pay for"

The fact that no-one in retail in Canada admits to carrying them should tell you something......

Stay away......

I am fairly sure that most the vendors on here can get BOSS, but chose not to sell crap. It is not good for customer service to have constant returns and unhappy with products...

Is this the same company that makes guitar effects pedals? Or actually is it a division of Roland

I really don't think he cares to hear what you guys have to say about BOSS products. Why would you be ******* another vendor? That's not good business on your part. There is something called ethics. Maybe you guys should look up the meaning of the word or watch Billy Madison. Maybe that's what his budgest is...You don't think others may have told him that? The answer to your question is what Menace said...you can find them in flea markets all across the GTA. Dr. flea's at albion road and highway 27, 747 flea market at airport road and steeles in brampton as well. C'mon guys, we'd expect a little more class out of our vendors on the forum.

All right.....my version of "ethics" in car audio, as an enthusiast and not as a person selling a competing product has always been to try and help people new to car audio get the best start in this hobby I can. I have not heard any positive feedback from anyone who owns some of it and I have seen their products die 30 seconds out of the box so for me, the brand is a no-go.......

If he has a budget issue, he will need to aim a little lower for now......a quality deck with a motorized face plate and full Ipod control can be had for less than $300Can from numerous outlets in Canada with a warranty. In good conscience I could never recommend a product I didn't believe in and I think that puts my ethics in a good place.
