    I think James shipped mine out the day after he sent the ready to ship email. I got sent tracking info at that time and he actually shipped it out before he even invoiced me for the shipping charge.

    I did email banking over to them and the email went through, but I haven’t received a response to any follow up email or a decision on my claim. Hoping I hear something soon...

    I’ve experienced the issue with the A16 locking up when trying to go into sub menus, but that was a few firmware versions ago and lucky hasn’t seemed to happen since. The other issue I’ve run into that you described is presets losing settings. But it my case what it’s doing is losing the...

    For me it has been absolutely worth it, but that’s because I was able to measure an existing 5.1 system. As others have stated, it is currently a pain to capture a PRIR because it will involve a lot of plugging and unplugging of cables unless you have a receiver with analog surround inputs. That...

    Preorders haven’t started being filled yet as they’re after Kickstarter orders. Believe they’re in the low 200s of Kickstarter orders and they have something like 330 total KS orders to fill.

    I had to call them twice last week, once to pay the import fees and once when the driver wasn’t made aware of my import fees being paid. I don’t think I waited on hold more than five minutes either time and the employees were pretty helpful. I wouldn’t rule out phone support as an option. I...

    In my two previous experiences of importingmy A16 they don’t ask for import fees until it has actually scanned into a UPS facility in the US so it has to have at least made the trek across the Atlantic at this point.

    All I know is that people here have confirmed that the warranty is not transferable, but I’m not sure if that on all units or just Kickstarter ones. I would assume it applies to all A16s, but you could probably email James at Smyth Research if you need to confirm.

    I can answer at least the first two questions definitively. They are still shipping Kickstarter orders and actually they’ve been on pause with that since March. They are not shipping with the individual measurements, but supposedly they’ll be available for download once the Realiser Exchange...

    I just went and checked the tracking from my delivery and there were 29 updates in the trip from the UK to my front porch...

    Last year when I initially received my A16 I actually had it held at a local UPS facility for pickup since there’s one close to my office. The guy at the counter specifically looked to see if I owed an fees, and said I was free and clear. Two weeks later I get a bill from UPS for $38. Last week...

    When my A16 got delivered last week in the span of a few hours UPS said my package was delayed because of a vehicle malfunction, then it teleported 500 miles to an UPS facility 30 minutes later. Tracking never showed it loaded on a truck, but it arrived at my house somehow. Then UPS demanded...

    That’s terrible. Sorry to hear that. I will say that UPS has been a mess in my dealings with them during the pandemic. Fingers crossed for a speedy resolution which is hopefully they finding and delivering you A16.

    Yes there are two different power down states if you are using IP control. I’ll to try to explain the best I can. When using the A16 remote the power button does two things, power the unit on (light on front will be green) and powers it off (the light will be red). However, if you use IP...

    I haven’t extensively tested pass through in standby mode to be honest, but best I can tell it exists for IP control. You cannot power up the A16 via IP control if it is in its completely powered down state. I’ll test when I get home tonight, but I don’t expect pass through to work unless the...
