Decware Appreciation Thread (MT review up on first page 2-10-12) - Page 71

post #1051 of 1212

So, I go to check the status of my package and for the first time ever I see there's an exception.  Apparently the train my amp was on derailed.  I don't know why a package from IL (on its way to CA) went to NM, but needless to say, it won't arrive tomorrow as expected.  I checked the news and I guess it happened last Friday but they didn't update the status until today.  I have a bad feeling about this.  I'm so sad frown.gif

I really hope your amp is okay.  It looked like some of the cars weren't damaged that much.

Nasty! We take Fedex/UPS so much for granted.....I hope everything is OK and your amp arrives soon!

Yes, Decware pack very, very well - double boxed, lots of bubble-wrap. Two of two amps survived their long (no doubt rough in parts) journey to me in New Zealand without problem, not to mention many others around the world.

I think there's a good chance your amp will be fine - really hoping so.

Thanks for the encouraging words in this dark time.

 

In case anyone is interested, I did a little more research and found this.

Apparently the derailment happened back on the 17th.  I'm hoping this means my Taboo is safe but slow (a day or so).

Reading that, and seeing the pictures helps a lot with my rail issues.  Thanks.

I am sorry about your issue. I didn't see your thread and  I am surpirsed that UPS used the railroad for delivery. i thought they shipped everything UPS ground. Decware insures all their deliveries and will send you a new one if your is damaged. i would contact Devon and let her know what is going on. I know it will all work out well for you.

Thanks, Frank.  I just checked and they updated the status again.  My amp's in San Pablo, CA.  Unless something weird happens again, I should get it tomorrow.

Good for you. I guess it want on the train after all

My new Taboo MKIII came.  Just got it hooked up an listened to a couple songs out of both my Mac Mini and Rega RP6.  So far, so good.  My LCD2's are pleased.  Initially, I'm pretty impressed with the clarity of this Decware, and it's a pretty small amp to be making so much sound.  Looking forward to some quality time tonight (and into tomorrow morning).

 

So long Kenwood KR-6030.  You served me well.

^ great news. All intact and not a scratch too, it seems.

Just wait 'til you get more time with it...I'm pretty sure you'll be amazed the new things you notice here and there in old tracks ;-)

By the looks of it, my amp wasn't involved in the accident at all.

 

I let it run for a couple hours while I worked.  Then I let it sit for an hour.  Then I quit work early to listen a little more.  This amp is quite good.  I'm having a lot of fun smily_headphones1.gif
