Tom, of course there's something wrong, there's *always* something wrong. If I had a dollar for every time a company was wrong about a delivery date, I'd be retired. In this case, I believe it was the supplier of the dome array that was holding things up. However, I was told that the 2C/3C will show up at NHT HQ on/about the 15th, with the Three showing up about 5 days later. I don't know if anything has changed, but they seemed pretty confident about this. The same thing happened with Special Dark Xds. They said the 14th at first, but they showed up a week late. Late, but they arrived. I got a 3-pack of those yesterday and was able to deliver all of them. I also got the AZ, Two and Ten in Special Dark on Thursday in a total surprise. I didn't expect those until March or April. So, it just depends. Yes, NHT was grossly negligent in their time tables, but that's not atypical for the industry, trust me. NAD is having the same issues with its new Masters series. Things are *always* more complex than they seem. And time tables are *always* optimistic. They shouldn't be, but they just are. And we live with the errors. It's all we can do. One good thing, you've noticed that the time table has slowly narrowed from 6 to 5 to 4 to 3 to about 2 weeks out. It's not a great thing, but it is a good sign. If you're a cup half full person, anyway.
I did get the sense that, thanks to Vinci Labs funding, if there's an issue, it's not NHT that is the problem. Their 7.1 preamp/amp is, last I checked, still on for March, which is shocking in its speed. They engineered that whole system in about 2 months. THAT is impressive, when the lag time for equipment is usually about 2 years from conception to delivery. If they can pull this off in 4 months instead of 2 years, they could go head to head with Denon in delivering exotic technology almost as it appears. If I didn't get 4 new skus from NHT last week, I'd feel a little less positive, but I did, three of them completely unexpected.
