Presumably this will help with the Schiit EU dealers clusterfuck

    European Schiit users will know what's up- there are two dealers, https://schiit.eu.com/ (Electromod, UK) and https://www.schiit-europe.com/ (Sonority, NL). They have refused to ship outside of and into the UK respectively, presumably as some sort of distribution agreement.

    This is frequently somewhat frustrating, as Electromod is very small, and their stock is often less impressive than Sonority. It took a while until I was able to buy my Gungnir Multibit, as they were out of stock for ages- I seriously considered drop-shipping via my inlaws elsewhere in Europe..

    However, this makes it look like those sorts of national stitch-up shenanigans will be verboten..

    (Edit, ship outside, not shit. Doh.)

    Let's hope Brexit doesn't fuck it up.

    Quoting from twitter...
    Too much jargon to process right now, but I doubt things will change much. There's always some loophole to refuse selling. If there's no shipment option in webshop to some country, or seller simply doesn't respond to you, what are you gonna do? Complain to EU?

    This seems relevant for some reason:

    Well it might be verboten but it still happens.

    I've been trying to buy a Gungnir Multibit from Sonority for a while now but it has been out of stock for ages and they can't tell me when new stock will arrive. When I contacted Electromod they explained it's policy not to ship to the Netherlands. Probably because I'm supposed to buy from Sorority. So yes nothing has changed in this regard.

    LOL I just found out about this. I would've been able to order from Electromod and select shipping to Germany, but the price difference between them and Sonority is ridiculous! Lyr 3 (amp only): 589€ from Sonority and 564 £ (~ 652€) from Electromod (both prices incl VAT and shipping). Too bad the Lyr 3 is out of stock at Sonority.
