    Where does one buy electronic Musical equipments online?

    Hi,

    I am trying to buy a Yamaha PSR E413 portable keyboard. Tom Lee (wanchai) has it for a price of HKD 3000.

    WHen I checked in Amazon.com , there are at least 10 dealers who are quoting a price of USD 220 (around HKD 1700), and with the shipping rates they have on site , the total charge will come to a maximum of HKD 2100 (so HKD 900 less still).

    Has anyone bought any heavvy stuff from USA to HK before? .. It would be around 10 kg in weight - they say that customs duty, import tax, etc are the recipient's liability - any idea how much would this total to?

    Where is an equivalent of amazon.com or musiciansfriend.com or zzsounds.com in HK where I can buy musical instruments online!

    cheers!!

    @Vridavan, you mean no tax is required for importing into HK .. Amazon says that I would be considered the importer of the musical instrument into HK

    Guitarguy> you ll find that most Amazon sellers for this kind of equipment wont ship to HK. (If they do let me know which one ; ) )

    There are some external shipment services that will forward your orders from the US to HK (e..g onenow), but it may work out expensive.

    About taxes - I have never paid taxes for shipping anything to HK.
