Yes, I did. From Canada, but that's where I live. You didn't want to know that. Oops! Sorry. On a more serious note, I would be leery of sending money overseas and I would be leery of getting large used speakers shipped. If some escrow arrangement could be had, the speakers were not too big, in their original cartons (brand new would be best), and the vendor had good feedback (being no guarantee though), I might go for it. Don't expect a very warm welcome from the importer though if you need repairs or replacement parts. And if there is no importer where you live, you have a new set of problems getting them serviced. I would say, your local or semi-local audio shop is the best bet, especially if you factor in shipping costs and the inherent risk. I found that even when the price is quite attractive, once you factor everything in, chiseling with your local shop makes more sense.
