Yeah it's a bit odd.. I got an email from Eric (the rep who posts under the handle @TeamHiFiMAN ) last week that he hasn't heard anything from the factories in China, and that he will relay to me when that happens. Hopefully things are still on track with the guys.
If what this customer service guy said is true, it should ship within the next two days. Fingers crossed!
Maybe they'll ship on April 30, 11:59 PM Alaskan timezone, which will be technically before May 1 still.
