I've been trying to purchase a helix in Australia,everyone I have called say they do not have stock.

Perhaps someone from line 6 could chime in,for an eta of Australian helix stock,or perhaps you may know of a retailer who has stock.

It looks like Yamaha have taken over Line 6 distribution from CMI. While it means there's no Line 6 stock at all in Australia it will hopefully be an improvement. Several music stores told me that they wouldn't deal with the old distributors as it was just too painful and their pricing model was stupidly high (thus the outrageous mark-ups Line 6 products e.g. a Variax Standard is over US$1000 and all their other products carry 50% extra margins. The Helix itself carries a hefty premium too.)

 

Hopefully Yamaha (when they get stock) will expand the market and drop the prices to more reasonable levels. I'm skeptical but hopeful.

 

I'd love to get a Helix rack to update from my HD500X and a Variax JTV-69S as well if they existed in this country (though the retail price on the JTV is near US$2000 now and our tax is only 10%.)
