hello ekki

you forgot that you also have some units on stock for "swap" ...  means if a buyer gets a defective unit and comes in your shop you then can give him a working unit (from swap stock) and  send the defective one in the builders company for repair ... holding a stock also means you have "hidden costs" ... (plus pay 30 people with expensive hobbies) ... (THAT WAS A GOOD ONE ... GRIN)

sadly your showroom is too far from me otherwise i would take a visit there

WiMo employee here.

There is much more to a price than just cost, import taxes and VAT.
Stocking doesn't come free. We also handle after-sales service and support, pre-sales consulting, run a large show room and my boss pays about 30 people, some of them (like me) with expensive hobbies  😃

All of this is hidden in the price of a product...
Nevertheless, if you have questions concerning our business, feel free to write directly to me: ep@...

Let's see if you are lucky enough not to be hit for import duties and VAT. Sometimes you get lucky. But, generally, There Ain't No Such Thing As A Free Lunch, TANSTAAFL.

For the UK, the Wimo price of 232 Euros equates to roughly £209 plus shipping, without any shipping.
I missed out on the discount voucher but still only paid £161 inc shipping from Itead.
So there is a fairly hefty mark up of over 25% if we use the main source for Airspy products in Europe.
I'm not complaining, just commenting on the situation.
