Information given by Justin Wilson (HeadAmp Audio Electronics) earlier in this thread and the company's order page (see below), I assume:

Justin's comments here and the website indicate 8-12 weeks which provides you a general sense of time, but you should be prepared for a longer wait. Justin's scale of production means he is dependent on timely delivery from suppliers, and that problems with a component can produce a significant delay. Some companies might source a less than ideal component to improve timing, but Justin's commitment to quality means that he will delay shipping if that is required to produce the right product. 

 

So, if you need it right now, or if you are going to get bent out of shape when something doesn't ship right on time, you should look elsewhere, but if you are able to delay gratification, I have found Justin's products to be well worth the wait.

Great points verber!

 

Any of the top tier custom shops are going to have a delay that can be months for an order. These are small operations that do high quality work. Think of it as commissioning a piece of art. Time and talent are worth waiting for that will provide years of enjoyment.

Justin was a meet this weekend and had the GS-X mk2 there. It looks so much better than the pictures show. It's hard to tell but it doesn't seem it would be as good for the HE6 as the speaker amp I have but meet conditions aren't exactly the best :p

You can't buy everything (Wish I could with HF gear!). I am glad we have vendors like Justin that are so generous with their time!

It is an awesome amp and even though I bought it at a dealer without waiting one minute , I would be happy to wait 6 months  knowing what I know now.

After placing your order there is much to do .

Preparing yourself to enjoy this beauty takes time.

 

You mostly have to plan for not having time when it arrives as you wont be able to stop listening.

 

Good times .

Why do you nag? Justin Wilson already has stated the time. There's no reason to nag before the stated time is out. Be patient, or opt out.

The photos below are of a small rack I had made to separate my GS-Xmk2 's amp section and PSU.

I had the small rack made to measure in order for the GS-X to fit on my main audio rack in the position I wanted, which can be seen in one of the photos.

 

I guess I've gone OTT with this rack because it's made of mild steel then welded and will easily support my weight which is 12.6 st, [ I know that because I've stood on it ] but my GS-X will be going nowhere , plus it only cost me £35 and that's including the powder coating.

^ Nicely done - Both components are on one shelf now.  I suppose the steel would help shield the amp from the powersupply . . .

Nice one Dave, looks good man. I really need to make one of these, having them side by side is talking up way too much realestate

If other GS-X users are interested, maybe we can make a group order and get the price down . . .
