I got the email as well. I have gone for blue too :)
I have just pulled the trigger and paid a deposit on a BHSE :)
I had a similar dilemma a while back. I ended up buying a Resonessence  Labs, Mirus. They cost £4500 GBP here, so around $7500 maybe in the US?  It bettered anything I heard at any price point.
Thanks Phil, yes I forgot those 2 things.   So 6 things then so far.   1. Volume pot - at deposit stage 2. Colour? 3. Type of feet? 4. Choice of tubes. 5. Voltage 6. Output jacks

My only source of info is here, so when you read some of the comments and take into account you could be waiting 1-2 years for something, it is a concern.   I only wanted to start a debate and...
I actually got most of my concerns (and not just about Headamp) from Headfi and the actual postings by people who had paid deposits.   So I felt I was being fair really.   Small scale builder does not equal small scale service does it?
PS - hifi inventory updated. Raven is cool :) 
Hi Icebear - yes you understand the "problem". I like the best gear i can get / afford BUT I also value service.   Taking your money, ignoring you for months on end and getting the product 1-2 years down the line is simply not good enough.   As you say, and is widely acknowledged, the end product is peerless (whichever of these boutique amps you go for)and TBH the long wait isn't the issue - it is the attitude that comes with it, the contempt for the customer and the...
