2 months is too soon for me to get a shipping notice, so someone else will have to chime in...

I would like to secure May 10, 2010 in the "Xin return pool"

I don't know, I guess I would like to get something with op-amp rolling.....

I wonder how he'll respond to that if I put it in an email.

iBasso D1 allows you to do that. It's out of production but I think someone had one listed for sale here recently.

The good doctor has stopped responding to my emails when I asked him "how do I ship it back". Hmm....

mrarroyo,

Nothing personal, but somehow it seems like you and jamato8 (maybe hiflight ????) might be among a small few who would seem most likely to get "something".

You already had a beta and even requested him to ship other amps ahead of you. I have to assume the Xin has you on his favored list. (?????)

I have to assume he is hoping you will post more GREAT reviews so he can recieve many more orders.

But, even if not one of you, "ONE" single shipping notice in this period of time is still nothing in the big scheme of things.

I haven't seen any other posts where people have received notice or amps.

I don't know how many orders are ahead of me or even if Xin will ship in the same order as orders were placed. So, I don't know how to calculate my wait. But, I would have to guess I have many years to go at the current apparent shipping rate...... assuming "IF" I EVER get a Xin Reference.

This seem more inline with what I have experienced and more similar to what seems to be the norm.


I am surprised you received the first reply.

How many people who have outstanding orders are concerned about "Eventually" getting an amp and then having to be concerned if it ever needs service???


NSX...... I HONESTLY, can't for the life of me see how you could consider shipping an amp (in hand) to Xin and have ANY realistic hopes of getting it returned to you in a VERY LONG TIME....... If EVER!

At the rate he's shipping we'll all be dead before we get our References!

The amp I received (today) is a replacement to one of the original "Beta References" which I received back in May 2007.

DDW, although I can understand your frustration in not receiving a product that you have ordered you are way out of line by your implications. For the record, I am not aware of what you call "favored list".

Perhaps what you call "favorite" is instead trust that Dr. Xin has of long time users of his units and of individuals who not only own his amps but many other amps. I have had the opportunity of listening to well over 45 portable amps and conducted extensive testing side by side, so have HiFlight and Jamato8. As stated perhaps he sends his units to what to him are experienced "Beta Testers". BTW, this is no different from what other sellers do w/ their products, even outside of the headphone business.

Will I post on the reference? Yes, however I will delay my post/review by a 3 or 4 weeks in the hope that others get their units. In my experience when Dr. Xin is in production mode he can fabricate quite a few units in a short time.

BTW, if you follow this latest development you will notice that I refrained from posting here and did so only after another Head-Fier posted a reference to my post in Xin's website. I will not make excuses for why he does not respond to emails nor can I comment on why he has been absent for over a year. I do not know and will not speculate. To me it is sad that this has happened because of what I think of his products, but of course this does not matter to those who are waiting.

What is true is that many are dissatisfied and wish for closure (getting the amp they purchased). I certainly hope each of you gets what you want and/or have paid for.

Good luck.

...or at least close to death with partial hearing in both ears, and by then we will have chips imbedded in our head to back up our brain memory along with movies and music, and an amp will be the current day worth of the cassette tape.
