A $1800 amp + tax is hard to swallow these days unfortunately. Lots are hoping to get at used one at $1500 or less IMHO

I agree there is a price / macroeconomic inhibitor aspect to slow sales however I still thought ~250 tube addicts would “find a way” to buy one.

I'm not sure if absolute price is the inhibitor as many consumer electronic devices cost much more. It is just a new, un-reviewed tube monstrosity.

Yes. I ordered one.

I actually think after they sell out the price will hold or even eventually go up. Scarcity makes most things go in value.

That can work in unintended ways: since the FV needs eight (!) 6N6Ps, scarcity of the tubes will raise their price and might depress the FV price…🤷🏻‍♂️

We shall see. I don't plan on selling mine. Of course I've said that about the last 5 amps and 10 headphones. :jecklinsmile:

It may be 1 year, it may be 6 months.

I'll pick one up for ~<$800 (which is my bite price).

Not sure we will see that price any time soon. Look at what a used Yggy goes for. Or a Ragnarok. But I guess you never know.

When did you order yours? And what color? Mine's a black that I ordered on 7/2, but haven't had any update yet.
Same as you ... black & ordered Sat 7/2 ... in the a.m.

FedEx tracking says they've received it, so it is actually out the door from Schiit California Manufacturing/Assembly Center #1.

Hopefully yours will also be in transit soon, followed by more, like the 82nd Airborne jumping out of a C-17. (Seriously, I have no idea how fast Schiit can put them together and test them, if all the parts are on hand.)

There's probably like 3.2 billion 6N6P's still in Russia. The black market will engage at some point and start sneaking them out. 🤣

(the 3.2 billion is just a guess...I might be off by a thousand or two :slight_smile:)
