Hi,
I'd like to buy a DAC and IEM and found the webshop https://shenzhenaudio.com/ who has good offer and seems to ship globally.
Has anybody who live in EU bought something from them? How long did it take to ship to EU and do they also take care of import tax (or VAT)?
Please share your experience (either bad or good), thanks a lot!

They sell through Amazon (both prime and non prime), so I guess it's the better choice as long as they have available what you want to buy, this way (fulfilled by amazon) you'll have faster shipping, no hidden costs and less headaches.

Otherwise when buying directly from China (or other non EU country), depending on the value (it depends on your country's legislation) may carry added VAT and duties.

Thank! I found their store on Amazon.de but looks like only small number of items there.

You did not mention the brand but smsl: hifi-express.com seems to allow shipping from uk some even germany if that helps.

Bought my L30 from them via Aliexpress. There were supply issues with L30 at the time so not a fair comparison but yes, paid import duties etc to UK.

Budget for 25% on top of price paid if coming into the EU.

Thank you! Nice sites, I find smsl m500 cheaper and will be shipped from UK warehouse on hifi-express.com, hope they have more brands!
HiFigo.com price a little higher but many more brands. I guess the shipping option “Priority ( 1-3weeks, avg.2weeks )- All taxes & duties paid” is the one I should choose if I don’t want to pay tax myself?

I bought my SMSL SU-8 DAC from them. It was shipped within 3 days of ordering and arrived within a week and half or so. I did have to pay import duty and tax though when I went to collect it.

I bought my SML-SU8 from them. All was good. I don't remember the shipping time to Spain, but not too long.
VAT must be managed by you at the arrival.

Definitevely, I recommend them.
