Buying electronics in US through some company

Hello,
my situation is following - I would like to buy quite unique piece of hi-fi hardware in US - Peachtree Audio iNova + their D5 loudspeakers. They even offer nice discount when buying together (300 USD). The problem - they don't ship outside US, stating they rely on their distributors. And distributor here is super-greedy, charging here in Suisse almost double the price (in current exchange rate). I looked at ebay, nothing. Amazon does not ship this here or anyere else in europe. And so every other shop I have found. Other EU dealers are also unreasonably expensive.

So, question - is there any company serving as a mediator for any kind of US shopping? So they order the item to them, and re-send it to me. All legal, I can pay swiss VAT. But why pay more?
Thanx for any info
