It seems that interest in the V800 is finally picking up. For a long time it was just a few of us who raved about it but not a lot of others seemed interested. Now there's a surge of people discovering it. That's a good thing! Especially if one already owns a V200 or V181. The stack is just magical together.
I bet Violectric had stock of V800 based on sales volume from the past year or two. If demand suddenly surged, they wouldn't anticipate that and therefore didn't have enough units on hand. Violectric is not some massive company who can crank out dozens of V800s per day - each unit is hand assembled by a small team. But I'm sure they are hard at work on it right now. Trust me - it's worth the wait.
