He had to ship my SDS-XLR overnight too.
I am sure he knows about the thread, but also know he has planned to get ALOT of the high-end stuff out as quick as possible after canjam.
As far as his % of head-fi customers....I have emailed or talked to a bunch of people who have bought SDS-XLRs and other one off preamps, and stat amps that dont post on this or other sites at all.
Two who I have met in the last couple years that I didnt know that live within 20 minutes of my home both own SDS-XLRs and one has a ES-2 being built and the other has a
Transparency with a built in USB DAC in the works.
Throw in Purk with his SDS-SE, and(old) es-1, CONCERTO, AND Mike with his SDS, and decked out Supra, its plain to see the wait times are due to one man trying to please everybody at once which just isnt possible. Thats a dozen built or being built just in the ATL. area alone. (thats counting the SDS, SDS-XLR, I had and the Mercury Vapor Supra hybred on the way)
I think hes going to pull it together over the next 6 months or so. But I also think the wait times on these custom amps is always going to take a long time.
