Yes, all goods incoming to the UK are liable for import duty & VAT. Even gifts. Forgot to mention - there are different duty rates for different classes of product...

The limit is a value of around the 18UKP mark (inc shipping), can't remember exactly.

I got my squeezebox from Dabs.com.uk they are very reliable and
competitive on pricing although stock is very low at the moment.

187.70 Wireless inc VAT
136.51 Wired inc VAT,

Postage is very reasonable too.
