Is anyone aware of any NZ outlets for Audioengine (at a decent price)? I was looking at purchasing a D1 and A5+ set, but the prices I've seen locally are way off. (a5+ retails for 399US, but here is close to $800NZD).
The D1 is $388 NZ locally, but only 169 US, if from the states.

I had the same problem and couldn't find anyone locally selling the A5+'s for a sensible price. That said, I have spoken to the guy that runs Stereotype a few times and he seems decent and open to negotiation, so it might be worth giving them a ring?

I held off buying the things last year when the original distributors pulled out of the line as I thought I would have problems with warranty and support - given that they were selling existing stock off for around the $450 mark, I am kicking myself now!

Thanks mate, I might give them a call tomorrow or Monday to see if they can help out. Seems these have gone up astronomically and the only reason I can think of is because they're so popular now. They're not EOL AFAIK.

Yeah, I'll have ot keep an eye out.

I might just see if its worth getting off amazon. Don't know if its worth waiting for it to go on sale.

Excellent speakers.

I bought mine in Melbourne: http://www.scorptec.com.au/product/Speakers/2.0/Audioengine

At the time there was no NZ distributor.

Thanks for that - did they allow you to send internationally? or did you have to have a postage forwarder?

Pricing's really gone awry I bought the A2's back in 2012 for 190NZD from Aquilatech, they don't sell any Audioengine products any more though.

Great little speakers smile

No luck. They didn't respond, which is disappointing. Still looking for a decent supplier :(
