Something to bear in mind is that on the Emotiva forums, they have up a notice to international customers:
Essentially saying to be patient as they are backed up with international quotes and orders...
So a WHF review maybe the last thing they need at the moment... Worst case scenario WHF gives them a mediocre review (2 Stars - good build but brutish, unsubtle American sound) that might easily put a halt to their newfound growth in international sales... Best Case scenario WHF gives them a rave review (5 Stars - Excellent Build, Power and refinement in equal measure) that just floods them with even more international orders (and they're currently backed up as it is)...
I don't want to speculate but maybe it's down to that every region has their taste in sound, design, build and opinion on what makes a good component. As an example, some forward sounding speakers/components get 5 star reviews in Germany while in England they love a more subtle, somewhat laid back sound in general. My American Hyperion speakers get amazing good reviews in the US while largely ignored in Europe. Some UK retailers even do some UK voiced modifications on these Hyperions before they sell them to customers. American speakers are build to work well in large living rooms with thin cardboardbox like walls, while in Europe we have in general smaller rooms and massive walls. I was amazed what a thin sound and lack of bass was coming from a B&W 802 nautilus speaker in a large living room. When one day this guy placed his B&W speakers along the long side of the wall the speakers had a smaller area to fill and sounded much better. He wouldn't have that much of a problem with big American voiced speakers.
I've had my XPA-2 almost a week now and am enjoying it more each day....

Li o seu comentário à pouco e como estou interessado em adquirir produtos emotiva, gostaria de entrar em contacto consigo para me aconselhar, principalmente no que toca às condições com que fez a importação.
Eu já encomendei umas colunas da mesma marca, mas os portes de envio e as taxas da alfandega custaram 1,5 mais do que as colunas.
Quando fez a sua encomenda também lhe aconteceu o mesmo?
Os melhores cumprimentos,
