Ah! I didn't see it. So GreatDane have you got it? GOTO is there anything new with regards to tweaking?
I hate listening to my new HD580 through unamped Audigy!! Yuck!! I may get a LDM+ or Xenos REP before I get XIN wonder. Can't live without an amp!!!!

kaushama,

Xin sent that email to me this past Wed.I haven't received the amp yet, I'm hoping that the amp will arrive Mon. or Tue.

I hadn't visited Xins forum for a while and I didn't see any recent comments about shipping dates etc. so I thought my news might bring a bit of relief to some people.

I ordered my Supermacro IV two Fridays ago and no word. Sent Xin a note via his forum requesting an approx ship date and as of now, still no word. Hopefully I'll get this sometime before Christmas???? I realize I'm in for a long wait, but I thought I'd at least get a confirmation altho I did get an official ID number so I guess that's something

Perhaps Xin will put a nice bow on the amp for effect

2 weeks? I bet that no one who has ordered a Xin amp has every taken just 2 weeks.

Both my Xin amps took about 5 weeks to arrive. Still waiting for the dust to settle before I send my SMIV back for the updates...

But fear not: Xin WILL get you your amp.

After years of being away from this forum, enjoying my Melos SHA/GOLd reference, the Melos died on me.
I needed portability, so ordered the Supermacro IV, and joined the wait.
I order mine on AUGUST 13, so I guess I'm in for long wait...
I paid with PayPal, so I didn't even get any confirmation or ID number.

I better find another solution meanwhile...

BTW, does anyone know where I can repair my Melos, since Melos Restoration is out of business?

You got an ID num. That is both "word" and "confirmation".

Evidently, delivery estimates are not Xin's strong suit, so any reply on that point sooner than a couple days in advance of shipment would have been equivalent to noise. All evidence indicates that his customers are happy or not, depending almost entirely on their personal ability to not have expectations about delivery dates. Anybody who wants to place and order then have the UPS guy deliver it in a timely fashion is in for a rough time. Those customers who stick with him report unreasonably-excellent service in terms of free upgrades, etc., but not in terms of timely response.

For me, personally, it is an exercise in patience. My circumstances permit that, and my wife tells me I could use a lesson or two. So, for me it's OK. However, I have wondered if the fawning glee among some of his fans whenever he says anything on his own forum (even if there is no real information in his messages) might be evidence of something akin to Stockholm Syndrome :wink:

Russdog: Ok thanks for enlightening me. I'm in retail, so my patience factor has grown immensely while awaiting customers to make final decisions. Good to know that number is both acceptnace and confirmation Will just wait the weeks like everyone else and be quiet about it.

Just to stir this pot a bit more. While I have a SuperMicro on order (7/29) the impatience got to me. On Thursday, August 24th I broke down and called Ray Samuels. This morning, May 28th my new Hornet arrived. Except for the weekend, it probably would have been here even sooner!

No I'm not cancelling my Xin order, I'll try them both and perhaps sell the one that finishes in second place. Perhaps not.

Just remember the Hornet needs 300 hours to settle in.

I got an email today saying that something shipped to me from Xin.

This should be a second generation SM-IV board that's being upgraded to the latest and greatest.

As always, I await the package... and know I'll have a smile on my face at the end of that day. Auditioning/comparing his amps is always great fun!

yeah, looks like all the upgrades are being taken care of first...and then the new ones.
