    @jayeshrc:
    the problem with many shipping couriers is that they have better quotes for companies who dispatch a lot. When you just send one parcel once in a while the prices are much higher.
    If you understand a little German you can check www.paclink.de or www.jumingo.de
    These services put themselves in between you and the big shipping companies like UPS and DHL and DPD and you get much better prices in many cases. You don't have to be in Germany to use the services; you can send from anywhere to anywhere; just the platform is in German...

    From Estonia to Central Europe by postal service (not courier), around 20€ for 2KG package.
    Latvia almost near Estonia, it would be same. Some countries ask lot of money for regular postal packages, i know you would pay 3x times more in some place.

    Well, I went with DHL but they're extremely slow - it's been a week and it's still on the way.. DHL was really good when I was living in Germany, so im surprised it's taking this long.

    The Amethyst is with me now. I am holding on to it a little longer as normal as I am awaiting my ZMF Auteur any moment (They have been delayed because of one outsourced outer piece which was not in yet). I hope that´s fine for the two last people on the list (@Changeling in Sweden and @sorrodje in France).
    If not, let me know. Otherwise I expect to be able to ship end of next week. @jayeshrc had the loaner already and @SKiring asked to be taken from the list, so @Changeling should be next.

    @Changeling: please p.m. me your address for shipping one of the next days. If possible with phone number (for the courier service) and e-mail address...

    No problem, @MrButchi you can even take me off the list for now.
    Extensive traveling for the next year or so.
    @sacredgates Thanks for keeping us updated.

    Atticus EU loaner is rolling...
    I´ve just had the pleasure to enjoy the Atticus for a few days. I will ship the loaner to Priidik in Estonia as soon as I get his address (PM sent).
    I will include an item check list (there are extra pads and adapter cables) and @saint.panda´s address.
    Thanks once again for being able to be part of this fine community and saint.panda´s generosity!

    @MrButchi

    Is it too late already to register for Metrum Amethyst EU loaner? Since Yggdrasil A2 seems nowhere near to be stocked by Schiit Europe and Gungnir Multibit A2 is yet to be announced, I am thinking about NOS alternatives. Metrum Onyx and Amethyst are at the top of my list.

    I am sorry but the Amethyst is on its last stop, and has been sold after that...

    Thanks for your reply, understood. Ive PMed you regarding one potential donation to the loaner program from me, if SBAF would be interested.

    @MrButchi could you please remove me from the Atticus loaner list? I have a lot of non-audio plans on the horizon that I have to save money for so I dont want to be tempted by trying things I could end up wanting :p

    Keith from Darlington Labs is happy to send one of their phono preamps to the EU for a loaner tour! Which of the Darlington products would most people be interested in loaning? MM3 / MM5 / MM6?

    Also, is @MrButchi still active on the community? Or is someone else the new gear master in the EU?
