Hi! Dear Justine!
What the f… with my BHSE (It’s my second order). You told me 45-55 days ago about some issues with some parts for BHSE. But you promised send a parcel (BHSE) to me 40 days ago. Great, I'm happy, hallelujah… And again, you disappeared for 2 months. I have been waiting my order from April 2013 (from April 2013 to November 2013, ha!) . I am not in the mood for it, but I think you want some happy moments in your life. For example: lawsuit?


Best regards
My Dear Justin
(Yours Aleks , kot2222)

I do sympathise re oeder waiting. You know, if you really want to bail, you could sell on your deposit. I bet many here would buy it?
That is if you DO want to bail?

I recall a while back that Justin indicated that the next batch of BHSE would most likely be the last.

Insofar that from the beginning it was a "Special Edition" and thus would be a limited production item. And also due to the fact that many of the high-voltage parts are becoming quite scarce and hard to procure.

In mid 2009 I believe 8 units were shipped, mid/late 2010 around 20 and the last batch from mid 2012 was approximately 45; Not many BHSE's in the wild.

This current "double batch" I would estimate at around 90 but have never gotten any confirmation of the precise quantity; it certainly isn't any more and may be quite less. So even after everyone on the current list receives their BHSE's that would still be less than 200 units that exist in the entire world..something to think about.

There have been some here waiting for two years, I received mine about a year after the order placed but would have gladly waited longer if need be for the privilege of being able to own such a bespoke piece of machinery.

I don't think it is directed at Justin, probably his sister though.  All joking aside, hopefully that Justin will be able to come through for you in couple of weeks time.

Well, I am one of the guys here have waited for more than 2 years.  From my point of view, the problem is the website gave me an incorrect expectation at the very beginning.  At the time I ordered mine, headamp website indicated the waiting time would be something like 14-16 weeks.  To be honest, I never expect I will get mine in 16 weeks.  I expect it would be at least 32 weeks.  Now, I have been waiting for 121 weeks something already, and I am still waiting.  That is more than 7.5 times of the website originally indicated.  Currently, the website changed to request quote.  If I were told the waiting time is more than 2 years, I am able to consider whether to order it or not.  Even after waiting for 121 weeks, I won't feel bad because I expect that.  At the end, instead of happily waiting for my new equipment, it turns to let see how it goes as I have waited that long already.  Anyway, it won't make any difference in my living even if I get my money back.

 

What I can say is I am neither happy nor angry like most of gentlemen here.  However, even if BHSE is the best audio equipment in the world, as a customer, it makes me feel like I get cheated, and that has stopped me to order GS-X mk2 since I don't know how long the waiting time would be with 12 weeks indicated in the website.  After getting my BHSE, I still need to pray and hope it will last for years.  Otherwise, it may take years to fix it, or the waiting time will be longer than the time I enjoy it.

i promise it is coming. the past year has been a lot of catching up. I finished assembly of the current batch of BHSEs a while ago i just need room to test them, and the easiest way was to get the GS-X mk2s shipped out, and the 115V ones just went out today, the 230V early next week

 

As for the next batch, that is coming faster than expected. This boat has a container with all the parts that will be powder coated: http://www.marinetraffic.com/en/ais/home/centerx:22.59491/centery:34.35631/zoom:8/oldmmsi:566853000/olddate:lastknown

 

I also just got samples of aluminum parts and they were all good! No problems with the aluminum this time! That problem cost me a year last time. I wish it were possible to be like Apple and when you have a problem, the factory fixes it the next day. For each of my problems, it's starting over and another 8-16 week wait for samples.

I understand your point of view and went through that myself.  I had to wait for a long time to take the delivery of both the GS-X MKII and BHSE, but once the wait is over you will be rewarded with the best commercially available stats amp out there.  The BHSE has a top class sound and the best build quality to match.  It really is a work of art.  I can easily see Justin charging 8.5k without doing a direct sale.  Have you ever notice what others are charging for inferior stat amps with significantly lesser build quality?  Great things will come to those who wait.
