Very well stated purk!

Hi Justin,

 

I assume that 110 V's are still waiting to be shipped as I didn't receive any tracking information. Am I right?

 

Thanks

Not Justin (obviously), but haven't gotten my notification yet so assume they haven't been shipped.

 

Given how excited we all are about getting our GSXs, I'm expecting to see a few posts here when the notifications go out.  Since no one has mentioned receiving one yet, again, I assume they haven't shipped.

 

Funny how anticipation works - I was able to largely not watch the calendar for the first 11 months but find myself checking this thread every hour to see if anyone has an update now that we are getting close to delivery....

your descriptions on differences was very helpful. Both you guys did amazing job describing differences in meaningful and useful way unlike some reviews I have read.

thanks!

thanks for the update justin! just one question, will the amps be shipped out as they finish testing, or do you mean all testing will be done soon and all will be shipped together in 2 days?

I am wondering in which batch I will be when I made a 1/4 deposit at the end of march. Trying to do some financial planning since I will be moving to new apartment in about 2-3 months - maybe I will need to cut on some unnecessary spending. I certainly don't want to miss out on GS-X :)

Welcome to batch #4 aka the "2014" batch. :beerchug:

 

I made the deposit early January this year and was hoping for end of June delivery.

As the current "2013" isn't completed as yet, obviously I'm not going to see any package from Justin in front of my door any time soon.

Now I've settled with myself :rolleyes: for a X-mas delivery and will be happy if it's gonna be any earlier.

 

PS: A GSX-MkII positively does not belong in the category "unnecessary spending" - completely strange thought !

First, let me just say that the fact that I have to post this in the first place is a real shame.

 

I've heard Justin's amps and agree they're second to none, but add yet another disappointed customer to the list.  I purchased a set of LCD-2 from Justin last year and had a great experience.  My experience with the GS-X Mk2 has been nothing but ridiculous.  I've emailed Justin on numerous occasions and he just completely ignores all correspondence (this was NOT the case with the LCD-2 purchase).  Maybe eventually he'll get around to it, but I've seen numerous examples of the exact same behavior in this thread.  Much like some of the other folks to which this has happened, I placed an order for a GS-X Mk2 earlier this year and subsequently decided to go in a different direction.  I've been asking for a refund for over two months now without response (including sending a read receipt where requested on emails, etc.).  I'd strongly prefer to avoid litigation over slightly less than $800, but if that's the only way to get a response I'll happily draft a complaint and file.

 

Whether or not the GS-X Mk2 is worth the money and/or the wait is in the eye of the beholder - it may very well be.  On the other hand, I've seldom dealt with a business owner operating an online business who is so completely unprofessional.  If you don't care how you're treated and just want the best amps money can buy, maybe HeadAmp is for you.  If you're at all interested in being treated like a human being, let this serve as yet another warning.

i see i did miss an email on may 10, after a prior request to cancel in April was reversed. that was until i received an email today threatening ligitation/attorney general for my "scam". i don't see any PMs here, and i dont recall any voice mails or phone conversations. so, sorry for missing 1 email.

Are you able to provide an update on this? Saw that you were planning to do some BHSE stuff too, didn't know if that meant before or after you got the 230 V GSx's out...

Justin, I'm sure I saw a post on head-fi suggesting you got someone to see to emails and answer the phone.

I think this would be a very good idea because it'd leave you to concentrate on building your products.
