So we placed our order for 4 or 5 amps the week before the price increase and transfered the money. Since then, no single word from Bottlehead. I'm sure they're very busy but we don't even have any clue about our order (2 other emails since then have been left unanswered too). Is it ok (special requests)? When will it be transfered? I'm really having bad luck communicating with them, Doc B was very nice before by PM, guess I'll contact him again on here.

 

Anyone else order weeks ago and hasn't heard anything?

post #1056 of 4685

From what I can tell, they got a huge influx of orders (including my order too) and are backed up. As I understand it, they only just got the Christmastime orders fulfilled... so I expect a they will be sending out soon. 

 

Delivery status page:

"Most recent update to this list - 2/27/12 - we have just returned from a week away. We will be working through the weekend to catch up on orders. "

I just saw. thanks for the link. It also says:

 

Crack OTL Headphone amp  orders thru 1/9 shipped - more shipping this week

Yes, we were buried by another Xmas sized rush right before the price increase. Actually that was a typo on the status page about our return, we have been back for two weeks and working 7 days a week to catch up. Crikey, even I have been kitting parts! eek.gif As of today we have the backlog down to around 75 kits. Another shipment of tubes should be coming in this week and we should be getting another large group of Crack kits out in the next week or so. Thanks to everyone for the enthusiastic support and your patience while we work to get everyone's kit to them.

Speedball upgrade kit arrived today.  Hope to get it put together tomorrow.  Hard to imagine it sounding better.

post #1060 of 4685

Thanks for the update, Doc! The bittersweet problems of success :)

 

Can't wait to get crackin', as it were. 

post #1061 of 4685
Lucky the one that got in before the price increase. It's now $279 + $125 = $404 before finishing products. Now the WOO 3 doesn't seem that expensive. Anyone tried both with 600 ohm Beyer? Comments would be appreciate.

I'm finally getting around to finishing the speedball. I picked up a tiny clamp from Fry's for $5 to hold the boards while I work on them.

Just a quick update to note that we got a good number of kits out in the past two days and I have updated the delivery status to reflect this. We have moved from where we were on Monday - the second week of January's orders - to currently packing the very end of January's orders. Waiting for a few more bits to arrive and we should be able to do another good sized packing session that moves us into shipping February orders next week.

The Woo Audio products are very nice and I enjoyed meeting Jack at RMAF. Do bear in mind when comparing that the Woo 3 circuit is much closer to the stock $279 Crack kit circuit, not the upgraded circuit that includes the cascode constant current sources.

post #1065 of 4685


Thank you for the reply back Doc.  I know you make good product. It's my fault that I miss the sale before the increase. I'll wait a bit longer. I currently have a pretty decent tube amp made in Canada (My country biggrin.gif) by Mappletree Audio Desing. It's very good with Grado headphones and fair very well with my 600 ohm T1 but I would not know until I try the Crack how much better an OTL is with the T1.
