I saw yours and one other guy posted as well.  Only 2 tho!  Bunch of people must have received theirs since JDS started shipping them....I ordered mine yesterday but I guess I'm just too excited and can't wait for more impressions!
 

Oh man, this is the best thing ever!  I don't know how you could wait for one, you ordered with rocketmail 2 hour shipping right?!?!!!
I'd say its about Pi to E times a Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster. It will make your ears bleed awesomesauce, and your cochlea will grow unicorn horns! (They make everything insanely great!)
 
P.S. rocketmail was something the US did during the cold war while competing with the USSR for ridiculous things we do on a daily basis that we could do better. :D

P.P.S.  Sorry thor777 I couldn't resist. :wink:

 DELAY ON C5 SHIPMENTS ANNOUNCED !
 
"Edit (Feb 26): Over 25% of C5 preorders have shipped. All PCBs have been tested and are awaiting final enclosure assembly. Our enclosure finishing contractors called this morning to report a 2-3 day delay, so remaining C5 orders will ship Feb 28 thru March 6."
 
 I was wondering why there weren't others who had received their orders. I ordered very early on and have not received a shipment email. At least now we know why. *Twiddles thumbs while waiting for the week long delay*.

I'm guessing you meant the laser engraving machine?....unless you asked for an exotic anodised colour such as hot pink. :p

I hope in future JDS goes with smaller emblom, it will both look better and it will save them time. Not a fan of excessive decoration on case. simplicity is the best.

Yes I meant laser... Oops :p

From what I heard the delay was in fact cause by the engraver tool broken due to some elaborate design on one of the C5 pre-order.
So now I know who to blame for delaying me getting my hands on one

To me the O2 and C5 sound very close to each other, but the O2 still sounds a bit more spacious and instruments seem more dynamic with more air between them.
 
I'll have to do a more careful listen between the two, but I've been really busy so I haven't had the chance.
