In light of the international shipping costs, I am surprised someone hasn't stepped up to act as a middleman, having the speakers shipped to them and then shipping them to their final destination, for a small fee. However, given my experience shipping items internationally, these may in fact be as expensive as MassDrop quotes. Shipping rates have skyrocketed ever since they've had to pre-fund their benefits for all employees for the next 75 years.
If someone is willing to step up and act as middleman, I'd be interested. Count me in.
