I got my tracking number today and it seems that the amp has left from David's hands on Friday. If I'm lucky, I can get the amp here this week.

Nice! Mine's still with David. The echeck I used to pay him via Paypal hasn't cleared yet. It's been 3 business days. The estimated clearing date is today so hopefully he'll ship out today or tomorrow. Then I have to...wait some more.

If postal is equal to or better than USPS, you may see it this week! If tracking allows, watch to see when it hits your postal system (usually after customs, but sometimes at the same time). This will give you an "idea" of how much longer.

I have read that EMS will ship the package to your door. In good case it will go just like that and I don't have to pay tax. In bad case the amp will go to my local custom agent and I have to pick it up from there.

BTW I haven't received replys for two of my e-mails regarding the Zero DAC. I'm a bit worried that when I'm going to get it or if I'm going to get it at all.

Look back on the review thread. I think someone said he was working up the next batch of 50 and they were due out this week? Something like that.

MKIVse NOS power tubes sound fantastic

I just received my Amperex 7119/5687 power tubes in the mail. I swapped out my Mullards and put the Amperex in and gave them a try. WOW, they sound extremely good right out of the box. These were NOS, so I'll be burning them in for a little while. I have my last two WE 408A's in as driver tubes, so this appears (so far) to be a winning combination!

WTF! My Little-Dot is already at the customs in Helsinki. Now I have to get it to Tampere's customs and collect it.

I don't understand. It doesn't leave customs and get delivered to you?

We have a ridiculous tax-free price limit for goods outside EU. I think it's something like 45 euros. I hope that they'll ship the amp fast from Helsinki to Tampere so I can collect it from Tampere's customs agent.

So no delivery to my door

Well, that's really different. I had ASSumed that postal Air was always door to door everywhere, or at least honored by delivery services as Air priority. Ow well. Hopefully you don't have to go far and the weather will be nice. Have a good one, and keep us posted!

You´ll probably get it delivered to the door anyway. Just that your countries post will deliver it, not EMS themselves

When me and I friend bought our L D amps, they were delivered to the door by the swedish post, unfortuneatly my friend weren´t home, so then we had to go and get them at the post office ourselves.

Also for ridiculous tax-free I totally agree, 500SEK for us which is ~US$77. And also our customs held the package for like a week, then sent a letter to my friend asking what the package contained and what it´s value was, so that made our delivery kinda slow

I'm certain that they won't deliver it to my door. I have to go to customs, wait for 30 minutes minimum to get service and then they will look me like I'm some weirdo and I have to show them a receipt which shows the price of the package.

I'll call to Helsinki's customs just in case that they will send the package to Tampere's customs.

Well, it looks like my package has been released from customs and they're delivering it to my door today

Excellent! Let us know so we can stop chewing what is left of our finger nails!

Bad news. I was promised that the amp will be delivered by 2 PM today. Nobody came and my amp wasn't even in local post office.

They better deliver it tomorrow or my weekend is going to be boring
