Mine took about a month, but that was during the volcano crisis last year haha. You should deffs email Jan.

Unfortunately, to maintain the low pricing for these items, Jan uses the least expensive form of shipping thru DHL. This is not normal DHL & involves strange & illogical handoffs between various delivery services including your local USPS. More than two weeks to the US is to be considered "normal" for all this. Tracking is non-existent past Germany too. Do not worry though, your amp will arrive, if not as soon as you might expect or have hoped. Jan also will support your situation regardless of what happens.

It really seems to depend where you live.  I've never had anything from Jan take more than 10 days to arrive, but I live in a major metro.

 

Once Jan announces a product is available, he has them in stock - they are not "built to order".  He uses Shanling in China to manufacture his designs, and so he orders bulk lots from them.

Any suggestion of interconnects to use with the Concerto?

 

My system is Stagedac - Concerto - Beyerdynamics T1

 

Thanks, Pedro

I am using Audioquest Black  Mamba interconnects that has great synergy with my Concerto and Marantz CD/SACD player and sounds great with both my T1 and LCD2

Do you happen to know what the duty fee was on your Concerto, sokolov91? I am seriously thinking of picking up one of these amps and fear for my wallet... I hope the duty and brokerage on one of these is not too much in Canada.

5$ flat rate brokerage fee because Canada Post is the one that delivers it to your door (unlike those UPS A**holes)

 

Taxes were 50$? Naturally something was arranged with Jan to assure this, but you will have to talk to him on your own. Spitting out any more numbers would be unfair to Jan.

 

I don't remember entirely to be honest, but the fees could not have totaled 65$ and I am pretty sure they were more around 50$.

 

Long story short, if you are really interested, just shoot him an email. Whatever declared price it is, add tax and 5$ to that and that is the cost.

Excellent news. Thanks for the scoop. I was worried that it would be in ~$100 territory. If any extra fees are closer to $50-60, I am game.  This amp gets more and more appealing the more read here and inquire. Is there anything that it is actually bad at?! Exciting stuff...

Haven't found it yet.

 

Off all the SS amps I've heard, it is the best sub $1K SS amp.

None from my personal experience. At least, it is good with both the LCD-2 and the AKG340 that I own, or by inference thereof, with low impedance current hungry cans to mid/high impedance cans.

I will be posting my impressions but from the last two days the Meir has exceeded my expectations and is now my SS reference amp. It is that good and Rob review was spot on and power the LCD2 it does without any effort and very musical and thats from a tubealohic

Can crossfeed be completely disabled because I really don't like to have the sound in my head

its either fully on or fully off with the concerto. No user defined settings like the stagedac.

you can switch it off with the switch on the front. I do not really notice much difference on or off. Amp is very very good and it has not disappointed me at all.

Really depends on the recording with the crossfeed. Some recordings you can't hear it at all, and some it is very apparent, with quick A/B anyways.
