I have ask the seller for him to join this forum to clarify some of the customer service issues that some of us are having but did not get a response from that.

I did buy it now for a black one and paid instantly from Acoustic sound design on Dec 29th and received a UPS shipping notification on the Dec 30th. The auction made no mention of being on back order under the Acoustic sound design auction (sound distributors says Jan 5 on auctions) and today UPS tracking still says Billing information received with no delivery date on the tracking page yet. The original email from UPS says scheduled delivery Thursday the 8th. I have a feeling it won't be coming by then but I could be wrong.

I had a 6 yr old Sony sub that I had bought for $150. I heard my nieghbors BIC H100 and couldn't believe the difference. Went about to buy one and found better value and sound out of the PA120,, which my nieghbors agrees

Been lurking on this thread, and ended up purchasing one of these Sunday through "Acoustic Sound Designs". I still have mine sitting at "billing information received" at UPS. I contacted Mike (confirmed it was him via the reply) and he said "they" should be going out today. So hopefully those of you that have been waiting and those of us who just ordered will get this shipped out today.

Thus far I'm not concerned as it does have free shipping on it, but I currently have no sub (sold my old one in anticipation of this) and would love to get this in my house. If the experience is good enough I may order a second one.

Can someone clarify if these two distributors at ebay the same seller. Because if they are this kind a concerns me with all the shipping problem. I ask the seller from sound distributor yesterday and he said because of the holidays his shipment got delayed and he confirmed via tracking that it will be to him wednesday. hope they are not giving us the run around.

I don't have a subwoofer on my setup either, and while my AV123 towers provide some reasonable bass, I plan to watch a few movies next week so I'm as eager to get this sub as everyone else. I'm not particularly worried that it's never going to arrive, after all if both sellers on ebay are infact the same person then I imagine if he just got them in yestarday it would be rather hard to get them out by yestarday as well and it makes sense they will probably be out the door today. I imagine with no shipping on Christmas or New Years, it would delay when he received them also. It would have been nice to just receive a little communication to buyers with this info, but I'm sure they will probably be out the door soon.

I agree with what you said about a little note. However my concern is he told the other guy will ship today and I was told it wont arrive til tomorrow. With people that had shipping problems when is it really and why are we getting different answers if in fact they are the same seller. I sure do hope so that it ships soon. For now I will take his word for it and expect shipment on wednesday maybe even thursday if he is just getting it wednesday.

I guess it really depends where you are located to determine if you will receive it on time. Both vendors on ebay are located in Las Vegas so I guess thats highly possible they are the same person since the price is the same. I'm in NJ so I imagine I won't be getting mine until Friday or Monday now, but we shall see!

Mike answers the phone for both Acoustic Sound Designs and Sound Distributors (I got mine thru Acoustic Sound Design by money order, no less so the wife doesn't know what I spend...she thinks electronics should cost $16.95). Thru ebay, he's sold almost 6000 pieces @ 99% rating thru Sound Distributors and almost 5000 pieces thru Acoustic Sound design at 99%. He must be doing something right?

I'm not here to give him love...it's just that I'm buying my second next week and hope it goes like it did in November...

BTW, I see today there is also a Sound Pro's that have sold over 3650 pieces at 100% rating and it looks like him also...

Well there we have it. Smart guy, he's probably making alot more sales by selling through multiple different vendors/sites. I wonder how he keeps up with all that.

Well that's one way to get what you want without her realizing, no bill means no paper trail

I, too, have been looking at the PA-120 but was waiting until the Black models were available on Jan. 5th. I have purchased from Eric at Sound Distributors before and the transaction was flawless, so I intend to purchase the PA-120 from him. Also, he has been very helpful and friendly on the three occassions that we have talked.

I called Eric today to check if the Black was, in fact, available and he said not until Thursday, Jan. 8th. He also stated that with C.E.S. taking place this week that most orders would be delayed and that I should wait until Monday to order. I specifically asked him if "Sound Distributors" and "Acoustic Sound Design" were sister companies and he stated "we work together". No other clarification or explanation was offered. I did mention the fact that Mike at Acoustic Sound Design was quickly earning a poor rep. in the customer service department His response to that was just a chuckle.

However, another point to consider:

Acoustic Sound Design - "Ebay Auctions carry a 1 year defective exchange warranty from us. First year is totally on us-If anything goes wrong we pick up unit at no charge-and replace it with a BRAND NEW UNIT."

Sound Distributors - " Ebay Auctions carry a 30 day defective exchange warranty from us"

I hope this helps clarify some things for potential buyers. I can't wait to hear mine.

See...that last tidbit of information really pisses me off. Now they say they won't be getting them until Thursday, Jan. 8th and that we should probably wait until next Monday.

I mean, for most of you, there's not much to worry or be upset about since you just placed your orders. I on the other hand have been waiting since Dec. 3rd! And I now know I have been continually lied to about when it will ship out. My 45 days I have to get protection from Paypal is up next week, so if this thing doesn't ship today or tomorrow, I'm out.

I wish the best for you guys and your orders, but I am absolutely furious at this point and don't feel like people who do business this way should get my money.

Update.....

My curiosity got the better of me so I called Acoustic Sound Design and spoke to Mike. In short, Mike, from Acoustic Sound Design, and Eric, from Sound Distributors, are brothers. They own both companies. According to Mike they own/operate businesses under approx. 20 different names. Mike explained the reason for the numerous companies as something to do with Google

I was very direct and honest with him in my questions regarding the companies and his growing (poor) reputation. During our 10 minute conversation I found him to be very personable, open and friendly. At no time, did I feel he was rushing to get me off the phone or that I was bothering him.

As to my earlier post regarding the 1yr. Ebay warranty, Mike stated that the warranty applies to both companies and that Eric (Sound Dist.) had overlooked changing his listings.

ALSO, Good news for those who have already ordered:
Mike stated that they were currently unloading two 40 foot containers of the PA-120s and that the pre-orders and new orders would be shipping today and tomorrow. He also confirmed that any orders placed between Wed. and Sun. would probably not ship until Monday due to CES.

Hope this is true and thanks for the info. I want to purchase another one to match the one I ordered but waiting for the first one to see how good it is.

Now that is a bummer and would piss me off too...something must have really fallen between the cracks

Yeah I found dealing with Eric was way better than Mike.

So did anybody's ship out today? Mine didn't, would hope I would be at the front of line since my order is 36 days old and counting, but who knows..

FYI,

One of my neighbors ordered a black PA-120 on Dec 27th after hearing mine (he's got a crappy Bose system) and it showed up last night here in Houston...I'll set it up tonight for him.

I honestly don't know what the hell is going on with your order Sparks...sounds like screwed up accounting or some other type of holdup

BTW, my neighbors wife told him that he wasn't going to put the PA120 in the living room and he told her to take a hike...that's when I said "see ya later"

I sent probably 4 emails since Dec. 22 asking for updates so I don't know how they could've lost track of me and fulfilled other orders first. And each time was told "it will ship next week" and then "today or tomorrow". It looks like the tracking info has finally updated that UPS has picked up the package from them, so it is on the move! My scheduled delivery date changed from Dec 11th to Jan 12th. Nice work guys..

Your story that your friend just recently ordered one and got it shipped has sealed the deal for me giving him a flaming negative feedback on ebay. This was terrible. This sub better be worth all the trouble.
post #143 of 2112
i still have mine as billing info received. Hey marc did your just update this morning?
post #144 of 2112
I was alittle skeptical with the shippment process though. I placed the order last night, black one, at 11pm est and got a UPS shipping number this morning. Schedule delivery is 1-14-09.

they send the tracking early. Hope you get your shipment shipped today someone had mentioned that they spoke to them and because of ces all new orders might not ship til monday. I preorder mine and tracking still have not yet been updated. hope mine ships today too.
post #146 of 2112
I hope it does and would be on schedule too.

I’m the type of person that likes to plan things in advance. I could have been because of the holidays ups might have messed up. I would not have waited another week for it especially if it had a scheduled delivery date. I would have canceled the order and buy it from their other five distributors. Have my CC company deal with it. The Paypal claims/dispute department will they take forever.

Yeah, it's weird. It updated this morning, but the timestamp says UPS picked up the package from the seller at 9:42 AM YESTERDAY (1/6). No updated information since, so it is now in "Pickup" status with a resheduled delivery date of 1/12. I'm still skeptical until I see the package make another hop and get to a UPS facility.
post #148 of 2112
Just emailed them and he said that shipments are coming today and they have sold 80 and should be going out today aif not latest tomorrow. I hope they ship today for me to get it on friday if its coming from nevada and california is only 2 days transit time. I got mine from sound distributor and i dont know if they operate differently. will purchase another one as soon as i hear this sub and if i like what it brings.

I think your set and should expect yours soon if ups had already picked it up. Sorry to hear about your long wait.
post #150 of 2112
Usually when it's in transit, the next update will be at your UPS location. Also, updates might not appear over the weekends. It should say "out for delivery" on the day scheduled.
