I'm guessing that is why it has been sitting there with no bids ;)

An 8HD went for just £205 last month and that had 120GB hard drive, max ram, Novachord and Nebulae sound banks, Hollow sun, Emulator III, Free packs, Polymoog Vox Humana and Vstream 01,02 plus a load of others. THAT was a bargain!

By the way, I see that Fusion 6HD now has the best offer option on it ;)

Here in Brazil a 6hd will cost you around us$750 and the 8hd us$1000 (expanded or not they cost around the same money). The cheapest 6hd I have seen in 10 years was $500.

At those prices it would probably be cheaper to buy one in from the states even with shipping!

Brazilian laws won't allow you to import used gear. You may try and sometimes you can pass customs (even using mail etc) without their aknowledgement (as it's impossible to them to check each package) but if your package is checked they will either arrest your package or if they think it's new they will charge you 60% of taxes over the sum of the product price + shipping price. Sometimes they will arrest the package and you have to send proof of where you bought it and how much you paid it so they can calculate your taxes... It's outrageous.

I never realised Brazil was like that! :shock: How does a government get elected that imposes laws like that on the citizens of the country?

You should be able to buy used goods from anywhere you want. Over here in the UK we do sometimes get hit with taxes on imported goods but not from other EU countries. The only restrictions are on dangerous goods like chemicals and weapons.

THAT is terrible <Drummond> . . . . .

What's the position with "Spare Parts" . . . .?

You could negotiate with the seller to describe it as "Spares or Repair"?

even unplug something inside (by arrangement) - so it WON'T fire up when they switch it on . . . . .

Just a thought . . . .
