Buying from Japan...Accuphase or Luxman what are the costs ? import duties etc

Hi I cant seem to find the answers, anybody actually bought accuphase or Luxman from Japan to USA. Most on ebay are free shipping, are there tariffs, duties etc, If I do this it will be shipped to a non sales tax state, thanks for any info.

Aduoguy you are WRONG!

I bought an Accuphase new from ebay with USA 120 Volts. Only paid about 60 bucks custom fee. FedEx just billed me as they acted as my agent. I enjoyed paying 4K for a 9K us amp.Warranty? I dont think you would ever need service on an Accuphase amp. I have never seen such meticulous build quality on an amp. 

Better to buy used in the US IMO. Voltages are different, and these are heavy gear, anything could happen. Luxman at least is widely available in the used market. Accuphase, not so much.

Well I did bite the bullet so to speak, I did buy an Accuphase E280

NOT from Japan but a used US version should arrive today.

Appreciate all the input.

Congrats and you will love the sound of the amp. FYI in case someone does buy from Japan, damage from shipping would be difficult. My unit was packed in 4 boxes. You would have to jump up and down on the box to cause any damage.
