I know this reply is a couple of pages back already but I feel for you man. I ordered my 58X's on the first day of the first drop (maybe second day?) without considering everything that could happen to me personally in six months. I'm so thankful for that transcendental quality of music that allows us to leave the harsher realities of this mortal life behind for a bit. Music is at that crossroads of science and art where it can't fully be defined by one without the other. I'm grateful for your post since you remind me that life is precious and to forget that in this audio hobby is to miss the point of the hobby. Stay strong, friend, and may you find a good deal on an enjoyable amp soon! Take heart, friend. I had an unrelated Massdrop order that was scheduled for delivery on 6/30 also but I got it yesterday! Here's hoping that you get a similar experience. (I'm also hoping that the 7/12 quoted delivery date of my set of HD 58X's is overly conservative too).
