heck, don't even need to be a coder. lots of options out there for online marketing. but that's okay. hopefully things get sorted out. it's good to see dan's business doing well and hopefully all the kinks will get sorted out.

 

diana krall sounds great with the ADs.

I am waiting for my Alpha Dog from France (purchased from stereodesk that is a very sympathetic seller.)

Yes it seems that USPS is... eeerhm, look at this :

They still use standard 3.5 until you get to the Universal MD.

 

Dan...FWIW, usps is as realiable (and unreliable) as any of the carriers including fed-ex and UPS. I've done a significant amount of shipping in the past 15 years and I've found that usps is a little better than any of the others and for less money. I'd speculate that the recent rash of issues that you've had are due to the winter storms more than anything else. 

 

I do support a choice of carrier especially since there are so many overseas customers now. Hang in there!!

 

gL!!

also wondering if anyone here has used low-power speaker amps to power their ADs. i have a couple of old tube monoblocks that are for high-sensitivity speakers that i used for the k1000 when i had them. wondering if that would be too much juice for the ADs. hope to try this combo if/when my ADs are ever found...

I have one.  The ADs will scale with more clean / good power.  They sound really good out the F1J.  I much preferred  them over my now sold TH900 in many ways.

Not at this time. Last night I made the decision to upgrade our store platform to solve this once and for all, but it will take a while to transition to a new store.

Our shipping estimates have been pretty good, we are currently shipping Jan 22 orders. If you need your tracking so as to be home at the right time, etc, you can email me if three weeks hits and you don't have tracking, but if you don't need the tracking I appreciate not getting too many requests as shipping is taking a lot of time that could be used for test, or building a better store platform.

Thanks for the patience!

USPS is doing this a lot right now, probably 5% or more of our shipments hit this and then nothing for 5-10 days. They usually show up the day you give up. I spent 2.5 hours on hold trying to track a lost package and never got anyone to answer. Until November USPS was incredibly reliable but I think the budget cuts are really starting to hit them.

It's a sh a me because they have been great, until man we had not lost a single package in almost two years.

"and then nothing for 5-10 days"

This is not very reassuring. I want my Alpha Dog it's so loooong to wait :(

What do you mean by "They usually show up the day you give up." ? (I'm french you know ;)

For what I understand, in this case I am willing to give up now :)

Thankfully it's still the exception, but it is frustrating to go through it.  Merci, monsieur, pour votre enterprise (oui, je parle un peu de Francais).

We're going to turn on Fedex this week and we've got good rates.  It's not yet clear if the notifications for the system will be more reliable, but I have verified the integration is working to get accurate shipping rates so we're getting closer.

 

For notifications, we use PayPal for all our payment processing and shipping, but the problem is if you register at www.mrspeakers.com with an email that is not in use at PayPal they won't send a shipping notice.  If you use a credit card and an email registered with PayPal they do send a notice.  I call that a bug, they say it's a feature, and that it won't be changed.  This may not change when we add Fedex, this is something we're working on.

 

I support this move fully.  I didn't complain before but figured I'd give you another data point after reading the last couple of pages.  USPS totally mishandled my AD delivery as well.  I sat around the house all day Saturday because tracking showed "out for delivery" at 8:00 am.  At 6:00 p.m. tracking changed to "available for pickup at your local post office," which entry was backdated/time stamped 3:00 p.m.  Of course, that office is closed Sunday.  I went to the post office first thing on Monday, and after searching in the back, USPS indicated that they couldn't locate my package, or any record of what happened to it.  I was instructed to "wait a day or two."  It was ultimately delivered late Monday afternoon.  I plan to avoid USPS and to pay extra to use private carriers at every opportunity going forward.

Merci monsieur too ;) Well, that's great. I suggest that from now on you're writing in French. (But I do not know if other headHifiers will agree?) :D

I think MOT prevents me from saying anything in relation to other products, so our French-speaking brethren (or anyone else) should answer.
