Laurie has said (on the Yahoo Groups site) that he is not interested in being an Australian "agent" for George's speakers and enclosures.
I am interested in doing some installations in my own locos using these speakers and have sent an email to George to try and start the ball rolling for an order.
It seems silly that each of us in Australia who wants some of George's products, has to order directly from him.
Accordingly, I am looking into the possibility of becoming a "distributor" of George's products; assuming he is agreeable of course. I would not be trying to profiteer from any such arrangement, but I would be seeking to cover my costs of postage, packaging etc.
So, I would be interested to see if anybody on this site is likely to be a candidate for some of these speakers? What I was thinking is that I would initially purchase enough speakers just for my own needs for the foreseeable future (say 10 small rectangular speakers). That way, if nobody around Australia is interested, then I will have a small back-up supply for my own needs into the future (eg: for the 6 Trainorama 48s I have on order and the eventual arrival of the Auscision 45 class). I have an immediate need for a new repalcement speaker for a Powerline 48 (the recent run), but it seemed stupid to just order 1 speaker.
Interested in the thoughts of others.....
