Is the low impedence version still coming out aroung May?
From what Craig tells me, the HD25 should be available in mid-May for $600. Its specs differ from the HD300 by virtue of using output transformers, has one coupling cap per channel, and custom paper/tin/oil 600V .22uF caps are standard. It also has no line out or record out. He hasn't decided on a driver tube yet, but the output tube will be a 6080 (or 6AS7, presumably).

I also asked what the shipping method and charges would be for Canadian orders. I'll post these when he gets back to me, assuming that there are other Canadians who are interested.
Craig got back to me about shipping for Canadians. He says that he'll use USPS. Using his figures (a 24"x12"x10" shipping container weighing 18 lbs, sent from Calabasas, CA (91302)), I calculated that Airmail Priority Post to Canada with $500 insurance will cost approximately $37. Since there's no Canadian shipping option, Craig will let us know when our amps ship and we can pay the difference at that time.
Something I didn't ask was whether the shipping container will cost extra. U.S. shipping breaks down as $14 for FedEx and $10 for the container. Therefore, I assume that total shipping to Canada will be ~$47 ($37 for USPS + $10 for the container).
