    4.4k is in fact the total overall sales. when i got mine yesterdaty it was at 261 then it got up to 467 then i checked 5 min later and it was at 3.9k so there is no way in 5 min it went from 467 to nearly 4k in 5 minutes. im shocked at how many they are selling this time when every other time it was limited to like 500 or 1000. finally the people buying a dozen to flip em on ebay will be halted. i bought a few myself this time but only to get them for close people i know who would not have otherwise done so, and if for some reason they dont want one ill put them up here.

    Maybe with more of these in the wild and freely selling, Monoprice might take hint and keep the liquid platinum price close at $615 longer. Not only that, maybe other manufacturers will start taking a hint and come out with more capable amps <$500.

    When I went in to see the drop no. Was 31 or something by evening it became like 2 or 3K

    I doubt they are going to be able to stock that many if they've had trouble getting up to 1000 so far. It's more likely that most people are going to get a "we regret to inform you" email in a few months... Hopefully not, but everything points to that. I got on the drop when the number was around 500 and it hit the 4.3 number when i got back on at night. I just want one. I really just want one...

    Edit:I actually think they just added the total sales onto the number from this group.

    Haha, jack up the price 50 bucks just cause they can. I'll pass just on principle.

    I think they just added the prior sales onto the number. Usually a product shows the total sales for all time. Pretty sure the low number was just a simple mistake.
    adeadcrab and Currawong like this.

    I mean, Audeze boosted the price of the LCD-2C by $200 after the introductory price just because they could. Prices going up and down a little bit is kinda normal, I think.

    The only difference with Drop is that they are the only seller of their products so we don't attribute to the seller instead of the manufacturer.

    Hi for preorders when does Massdrop start charging. Tks.

    They're cashing in on the internet hypetrain and people make excuses for it. They didn't mention that they were offering it at an introductory price before. Audeze did.

    It says right there: "After this product run ends, payment will be collected and orders will be submitted to the vendor up front, making all orders final." Now it says "28 days left". So, you will be charged no later than in 28 days. Or earlier if they run out of stock.

    I've just joined the latest drop for the 789.

    Apologies if this has been asked before, but didn't manage to get past the first 14 pages of this thread without my kids bugging me..

    What dac are most of u pairing the 789 with? The Airist r2r dac on drop?

    I'll likely be using the 789 and dac in office with an iem or closed back.

    Depends if you like XLR connection.. SMSL SU-8 quite popular... My pick is Topping D70

    When the 789 arrives, Topping D50 and/or Soekris 1321.
