Things over time do improve, but that's not the case with everything.

i would probably go for pink if i decided to buy this.

The Blue Hawaii design is over 10 years old now and the BHSE is exactly the same save some parts having been changed as the originals were discontinued.  That will continue to happen though as the BH design will switch over to the same parts as the KGSSHV now uses.

Why wait for someone to cancel?  Justin said he's got a few more spots left on this round of orders.  Pony up!

right now i have exactly as many orders as units i am building. however, theres probably still going to be some cancellations and sometimes people think that the deposit was a full payment, so i would guess theres probably a couple left

This is it basically. The hold-up is not getting everything done, it is getting everything done perfectly.

Then just don't buy it.  For Stax to come up with something as good as the BHSE, the price tag will be way north of 8K with lesser quality parts.  Remember the original T2 amplifier that bankrupted Stax Japan?  It was retailed over 10K back in 1990.  I doubt that they will do anything like that again.  Justin's margin on his BHSE is very low given that the US government will take nearly half of his profit away.  You likely won't understand what I'm saying until you have a BHSE in your home.  It is handcrafted to perfection.  The visual aspects of the amp is strikingly beautiful.  Of course, it gets better when you turn it on.

 

I think it was all their high-end audio gear that bankrupted them. Ironically if they had that kind of line-up now they would have been making a mint.

They were way too ahead of time just like the Qualia, R10, K1000, as well as baby and big Orpheus.  Their top combo consisting of the OI & T2 are still considered by most as the pinnacle system.
