New ASL Amps

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Hi Guys.

I have been patiently waiting for the ASL MG OTL 32 to arrive. In the meantime, has anybody taken delivery of either the OTL 32 or the MG Head MkII?

If so, what's the verdict? Is the MkII an improvement on the MG Head OTL?

Joe, when is the OTL 32 shipping to Australia? I have heard nothing for a long time.

Hey there,

I don't want to step in and answer for Joe,but he did promise the amps in about a month or two when I talked to him at CES.That time frame seems reasonable and he is still within his promised window.I personally promise the amp will be worth the wait.It sounded great and is a significant step up from any MG Head.

Tuberoller, I have been without a headphone amp now for about 4 weeks since I sold my HA-1.

I have been counting the days since I placed my order for the OTL32.

I hope it will be worth the wait!!! I will be pairing it with the HD600/Cardas combo.

I just hope the amp arrives soon!

Still anxiously awaiting those new ASL amps huh costas? Sorry to hear about it. What ever happened with that custom amp? Did you get that one yet, or decide not to try it? I'm curious now that you posted this, it reminded me of your desperate amp search.

Still waiting for the custom amp too Doug!!! Cawsey is flat out at the moment and hasn't had a chance to build it yet... I guess all I can do is wait. My ampless headphones just sit there and mock me in the meantime...

Can you just put on your headphones and hum a little in the mean time? Actually, I'm sorry to hear that your still without a decent amp to listen to. But just think of it like Christmas, you wait and wait, and then it was all worth while. You'll get your new amp(s) and be in audio heaven for a long time to come. hold out a little while longer Costas!

Joe is probably busy, he recently had Chinese New Year and a few other things going so I guess the amps may have been a bit delayed. Divergent did however take a shipment of MG Head OTL mkIIs.

Try to ship OTL32 within 2 weeks !

I'm sorry ! We are resum from holiday for 2 weeks only. I try to finish a new shipment within 2 weeks and ship it out from Hong Kong.

Austrilia shipment ! I think I need to hand carry to Hong Kong 3 weeks later. It may be can not catch nearest shipment from China to Hong Kong due our prodcution schedule is full and all worker overt time working now. It is hard to increase production quantity due to it need skillful worker ! We need sometime to train them up and work !

I'm really sorry ! I will try my best to ship its as soon as possible.

Thanks for your message Joe.

If I read your message correctly, does this mean that it may be at least 5 weeks before the OTL32 makes it to Australia?

Can you please clarify this for me?

Do you have an estimated date for when these will ship to Australia???

Doug, the OTL32 may actually end up BEING a Christmas present...

I hope Cawsey gets some free time in the next couple of days to knock out your headamp. Who knows, maybe it'll be so good you won't look else where.

His stuff looked quite good, so hopefully his skills with power amps spills over into headphone amps.

I'm not sure Joe. I suggest you contact Nick directly and work that out. How has he shipped previous orders from you? By Air or by Sea?

I hope it's by Air...

Can you let me know?
