Second Sight take payment immediately with pre ordersDo second sight charge the card at time of pre-order or just before shipping?
I know there are still folks out there that buy them (I did up until fairly recently), but even so, I'm sure even they'd prefer for it to not be included if it meant paying much less for this set.
Ok great thanks, I'm UK based anyway so no issues.Second Sight take payment immediately with pre orders
This clearly listed on all pre order listings on their website
Click on second sight link in op
Note If you are based in a EU country UK vat is removed from price at checkout
EU customers EU vat is not included you will likely have customs in your country require EU vat to pay + handling fee for collection of payment
I have a similar CD player. Too bad the CD players now leave a lot to be desired, but I suppose the market has changed.£50 is crazy high!
and yes I would just like to say I am that person who also has a music collection of vinyl records.
I am one of those people who helped the vinyl resurgence by getting into collecting,, about 150 records now give or take trying to keep it small.
Still have a CD collection of about 50 or so, they come in very handy because I have a Sony CD\DVD disc explorer 400, you can pack that thing up with 400 CDs and DVDs connect it to your speakers and play any cd that you want...it is awesome!
Too lazy to take a pic but it's this one @karl01 comes with a remote

Also I collect collectible records not really for playing but for displaying.
If you are wondering why....just watch this video
@Noodles you collect these too or nah?
I have a record collection as well. Mostly Vinyl. For playing them I take the Phono Pre-Amp of a 80s Yamaha from E-bay (50€) and and play the records with a new bought Pioneer-player. Also bought a used Rane EQ (€90) and for two used Alto feedback killer EQs (2x20€). All runs into a Model 3 Class A/B Solid-State Vintage Amplifier from the late 80s, that gets temperatured with a laptop-cooling fan. The boxes are no-name ones from saleout. They always sounded sh1tty with cheap receivers, but with the amp it´s good. The record shelves are from Zomo.
The speakers seem to be good. Don´t know if they are good positioned near a wall. The player seems to be good as well. Also a direct-drive like my Onkyo CP-1050 (sorry not Pioneeer) and I prefer direct-drive, because it runs and runs and is free of maintenance.Got the Audio technica lp120 with the Microlab solo 6c speakers, been wanting to upgrade for the longest time but never did.
I want the Project Debut Carnon white turntable with those Klipsch speakers .
Yes I play my records just not the collectibles that are liquid filled or sand/glitter filled got like 6 of those for displaying only.
I was dumb enough not to get that AMy LP egg splatter when they announced it on vinylreleases on reddit (this was a while back couple of years I think) and now its 90$ cheapest on disogs
The last picture is my setup right now
I won't be ordering direct again if I can help it, 6 weeks to deliver to Ireland is completely unacceptable.@BluSteel2012 @Strangerbyday
Looks like Second Sight might now be registered for IOSS or have registered for VAT ID direct in EU countries
I just done a test on their website
UK £49.99 (UK 20% vat removed from price = £41.66) Irish Vat rate 23% applied at chechout giving price of £51.24
That's before shipping
Standard EU Shipping £4.96
£10.51 Vat applied on order
A few days ago it was UK vat removed only
At checkout make sure shipping country is Ireland as it sometimes changes to UK by itself
If any Irish member does an order direct from second sight from today let us know if any issues with An Post when order arrives
It should be faster now with Irish Vat applied at checkoutI won't be ordering direct again if I can help it, 6 weeks to deliver to Ireland is completely unacceptable.
Nothing from customs. Haven’t even received word it’s even in the country.It should be faster now with Irish Vat applied at checkout
Your delay might been due to customs
How much did An Post ask you to pay or did you avoid been asked for Vat payment
As orders done upto a few days ago UK vat was removed from price and not have EU vat applied
I ordered The Babadook about 1 hour agoNothing from customs. Haven’t even received word it’s even in the country.
I emailed them a week ago asking for an update & was told “due to COVID” parcels are taking 6 weeks to reach Ireland. Which is nonsense.
They’re also unable to do anything until after the 6 weeks have passed.
