I'm not very familiar with this, but does anyone know why it takes so long to order one?

From what I've read, it seems like Dr. Xin is the only person who makes the amps, so it's a one man company, and he randomly disappears without telling anyone and they just continue waiting for their product.

Yes, Xin is the only one who makes them and has the measuring equipment and everything else he needs in one room with trays full of the resistors, caps and other pieces needed for production.

I had sent both my Reference and Supermini IV back to him in January.........and received them both back in February - it took exactly one month to the day. My Reference is now a v.B5, and I also felt the Supermini was even nicer than it had been - the updates were very worthwhile.........and NO, they are NOT for sale.
Whatever has happened to Dr. Xin since those dates....................dunno.
Since the amp business was a personal passion to him, perhaps he accepted a contract for other work whose nature meant he had to work away from home for a few months.

That's one enviably nice hastily thrown-together desktop rig you've got there, Quaddy!!!

It should be noted that Kaushama started a thread here regarding a Xin Reference v.C he received in May...........there are updates and new Xin amps being delivered that are simply not mentioned here. Frankly, I have seen posters here that I would personally decline.......but, that's me. I am NOT implying knowledge of anyone else's opinions or sctions.

3 years next month. Still have my name on the list and just for giggles might order another one and see which one comes first.

We all think differently, what may be "insane" or "clearly mental" to each of you may not be to others.
