Ordering Audio Fidelity "Crank It Up Legends"
 
I pre ordered. I think this will be 2 channel. Can't wait to see how well all these different tracks sound.

I have them on pre-order also. The guys who get it direct from AF are starting to receive them. No word from the other vendors but it won't be long.

You're lucky. Checked Amazon said July 15 release date with no delivery date yet. Glad at least that the people that have them say they sound awesome.

Here's a copy of the notice I got from Amazon. Their estimates are usually not anywhere near the mark though. It could be sooner or later. Since they're already out, it's probably sooner. ;)

Hello,

We now have delivery date(s) for the order you placed on May 05, 2014


Chicago "Legends: Crank It Up"
Estimated arrival date: July 21, 2014 - July 25, 2014

al210 06-22-2014 06:47 PM

My order now says release date July 15th also. Nothing else about estimated shipping. :(

Just got my Amazon order update. Delivery Estimate Monday, July 21, 2014 - Friday, July 25, 2014 by 8:00pm :(

ti-triodes 06-24-2014 02:30 PM

It's a normal delay from AF. The people who order directly from them always get it a few weeks before everyone else. Maybe Amazon is not getting a full allotment for all the preorders or they're just being cautious with their delivery estimates. Every other vendor I checked says 7/1.


I wound up canceling my Amazon order and took advantage of ImportCD's 10% sale. It wound up cheaper. I don't have to give all my money to Amazon, just most of it. ;)

Import CD's shipped out both of my discs on Sat. I'm looking forward to these. All reports so far are giving them rave reviews.

Just listened to these last night with my wife and our dog... All i gotta say is , Steve, you outdid yourself.. from "Time of The Season" by The Zombies, OMG... the seperation and clarity... amazing!! "FWIW" Buffalo Springfield.. never have i heard it like this....!! "How Long" by Ace.. always wanted to hear this in high-res and I got my wish.. sounds great!! The guitar part coming up on the right is particularly clear and present!! "Schools Out" By Mr. Cooper, awesome!! I don't have the gold cd's of Mr. Cooper, but this one sounds frickin cool! Thats just some of my initial off-the cuff thoughts/review's..More to come... I love these sets!!!!!!! http://forums.stevehoffman.tv/images...rangesmile.gif

I only listened to Get It On so far. I'm flabbergasted. It's not a stretch to say we've probably heard most of these songs thousands of times thanks to radio. This is the first time I've really heard them. The work SH did on them is astonishing. Just about every song had a WOW! moment. Even songs I can't listen to anymore like Smoke On The Water are astonishing in the level of detail Steve brought out. SOTW, Spirit In The Sky and Light My Fire stand out for me but all sound great.

If you're on the fence about getting these, don't hesitate. They're that good.

That sounds great. I'm scheduled to get "Crank It Up" this week. I may have to get "Get It On" as well after your review.
